Konkan Railway tracks unsafe: KRCL Employee union

मडगांव Madgaon (MAO): Konkan railway corporation (KRC) employees union on Wednesday claimed that poor maintenance of the railway tracks is endangering the lives of people travelling on the Konkan railway route.

President of the KRC employees union Subhash Mallagi said that the failure of the KRC in proper maintenance of the railway tracks over the years has led to the tracks not being able to withstand high speeds for which they were designed.

He attempted to substantiate his statement by flashing a letter written by the commissioner of railway safety to KRC suggesting that trains on the Konkan railway route must not exceed 75km per hour due to poor maintenance of the tracks.
