The Growing Epidemic of Train Accidents in India
Issue
#32
Recently, on June 17, 2024, the Sealdah-bound
Kanchanjunga Express collided with a freight train near New
Jalpaiguri station in West Bengal, killing nine people and
injuring at least one; This points to the increasing train
problem. Heavy goods trains (Maal Gadi) in India.
The incident is the latest in a series of horrific incidents that have
exposed serious safety issues on Indian railways. It is an important
lifeline for the country's economy and business world. However, the
increasing number of train accidents, especially freight trains, has raised
serious concerns about safety standards and performance. The merging
of passenger and freight trains at the junction creates complex problems
that lead to obsolescence, inadequate safety measures and oversized
trains. High-profile cases highlight these problems.
The Odisha train crash in June 2023, in which the Coromandel Express
collided with a freight train, caused serious injuries and highlighted the
potential for serious damage in this situation. Similarly, the Amber
incident, in which a train worker died after being hit by a truck, revealed
the dangers of workers working in dangerous conditions. These incidents
not only cause a lot of damage, but also disrupt train services and trust
issues
The recurrence of these incidents highlights the urgent need to improve
railway safety and the need for immediate and sustained efforts to
prevent future accidents.
This article describes the recent events, explores the root causes and
suggests measures to improve safety on Indian railways.
Odisha Train Accident (June 2, 2023): Coromandel Express (Train
12841), traveling at 128 km/h (80 mph) in Balasore district of Odisha,
collided with an iron freight train containing iron ore. While many
injuries occurred in the accident that occurred at high speed, the danger
of passenger and freight trains sharing the same line also emerged.
Amber incident (uncounted): Two railway workers were hit and killed
by a freight train while repairing a train signal near Southern Railway's
Amber station. It was thought that heavy rain prevented the sound of
approaching trains from being heard, causing the cars to become blind.
Harsh Kumar
Jharkhand Tragedy (February 28, 2024): At least two people died and
many were injured when a train derailed near Kalajhariya in Jharkhand's
Jamtala-Kamatand district. The incident also highlights ongoing safety
issues affecting staff and passengers. And so on…
Addressing the Crisis
The incident also highlights ongoing safety issues affecting staff and
passengers. And so on.,
1. Improve Worker Safety: Tighten safety procedures for railway
workers and ensure they have protective equipment and
communication skills. Regular safety training and awareness can
help employees stay alert, especially during inclement weather
conditions.
2. Improved train detection system: Use train detection and warning
system in the workplace. Technologies such as GPS-based tracking
and automatic alerts can provide instant information about train
movements, giving workers enough time to clear the tracks.
3. Improve signal quality: Invest in modern lighting to prevent
communication errors and signal failure. Advanced signaling
systems can improve coordination between freight and passenger
trains and reduce the risk of collisions.
4. Special freight channels: Accelerate the development of special
freight channels and the operation of freight trains and passenger
trains. This separation can reduce the risk of accidents by reducing
interaction between different types of train services.
5. Regular maintenance and inspection: Perform comprehensive and
frequent inspections of railroads and trains to identify and correct
potential hazards. Ensuring that infrastructure and rolling stock are
of the highest quality is critical to preventing accidents. action.
Conclusion
State train accidents in India, especially accidents involving freight
trains, are a serious problem that requires urgent attention. India can
work to reduce these risks and ensure the safety of railways by
implementing stringent safety measures, improving infrastructure and
prioritizing the separation of freight and passenger trains.
