Maharashtra Central Railway s rock climbers ensure safe passage of trains at ghats
| Wednesday | 1st July, 2020
These safety soldiers work throughout the year to ensure a smooth and safe passage to the trains towards Pune and southern parts of India and towards Nashik and northern parts of India.
In April and May, they remove these boulders by taking 4 to 5 hours each day.
This year alone more than 650 loose boulders were identified and removed in Bhor ghat and Thul ghat and the same were cleared by a 3-wagon boulder special.
This ambitious task is done by 10 hill gang members each in Bhor ghat and in Thul ghat.
These all-weather railwaymen toil and sweat in difficult terrains so that the trains can pass smoothly through these ghats.
