This festive season railway is gearing up to regulate extra rush by increasing stoppages of certain trains.
South Eastern Railway (SER) has decided to halt Puri-New Delhi Purushottam Superfast Express at Chandil and Ghatshila stations. Usually this train only stops at Tatanagar but considering rush in festive season SER has decided to increase these two stoppages from October 5 and October 12 for six months respectively.
According to railway officials, this will be done on experimental basis as the decision is taken on the wake of public demand. Once response input is taken and revenue collection is calculated, Chandil and Ghatshila will be made permanent stoppages.
Purushottam Superfast Express will arrive on Chandil at 07:40am from Puri while down train from Delhi will arrive at 07:12PM as per the schedule. Similarly, up train will arrive at 05:54AM in the morning at Ghatsila and down train will arrive at 08:48PM.
These two extra stoppages will not affect arrival and departure time of Purushottam Express at other stations.
These extra stoppages will also avoid several kilometers of road travel for passengers.
