Ludhiana: The Divisional Railway Manager, Ferozepur Division, Anuj Parkash have passed orders to carry out an awareness drive for the public at railway crossings in order to ask them to pass stretch carefully as these days fog have started engulfing region.
Also, the higher authorities are going to start SMS drive to make people aware to cross the crossings carefully in fogs ahead in the city.
The Railway Protection Force would carry out the awareness drives on the unmanned railway crossings with the view to make people aware that they should not cross crossing without carefully watching that whether the train is coming around or not.
Only after watching properly that train is not coming around the passerby should pass the crossing.
Moreover, awareness drive would also be organised on the manned crossings from December 1 to make people aware that they should not do trespassing on the railway crossings when the iron bars are closed for train to pass.
These orders were passed due to onset of winters in order to avoid any kind of incident mainly in the early morning or late evening hours in the winters, which are more dangerous.
Other than the awareness drive at the railway crossings, railways is also going to start sending SMS in order to make public aware cautiously that from around crossings at any place.
The message would say, “Time is the valuable but life is precious, never make haste at the railway crossings.”
DRM informed that they would launch SMS campaign to create awareness among public about the safety measures to be followed while crossing them. SMS would be sent exactly at 7:00am everyday over period of three months so that messages should register in the mind and they should remain vigilant while moving out on the roads mainly in the winters.
