Kerala, India: Local opposition to closure of duplicate crossings

27 Aug

Kerala would have been the first state free of unmanned level crossings by now had local authorities not raised objections to the closure of duplicate unmanned level crossings so late in the day. Despite having prior agreement to the closure of five duplicate crossings the current opposition means that the railways will now have to upgrade these crossings to manned status. To date of the 300 unmanned level crossings at the start of this programme, 295 have either been upgraded to manned status or eliminated.
