SIAM to Rlys: Raise height of barriers at level cross­ings

The Hindu Business Line - - NEWS -

SIAM has asked In­dian Rail­ways to in­crease the height of barriers be­ing con­structed at level cross­ings across the coun­try as a part of elec­tri­fi­ca­tion process, point­ing out that ve­hi­cle car­ri­ers are fac­ing dif­fi­cul­ties in cross­ing them.

The in­dus­try body has urged the Rail­ways to in­crease the height of the over­head line at the cross­ings in or­der to en­able the passage of ve­hi­cle car­ri­ers with a height of 4.75 me­tres. Ve­hi­cle car­ri­ers are some­times forced to take a long de­tour to avoid barriers, re­sult­ing in fuel and time wastage, it said.
