Indian railway crossing that is unique

Image
Today, we are going to tell you about one of  the unique railway crossing's in India. Railway crossing, as you must be aware of, is a place where people cross railway tracks to go to other side.

Indian railways, and many railways across the world, provide some infrastructure at such crossings to ensure safety of people while they cross rail tracks.  This is usually done by fitting couple of gates at either sides.

The railway crossing gates are opened and shut by a railway employee called - 'Railway Gate Man'. These days many of the crossings are equipped with automatic gates that can operate without the presence of a human being.

What can be done if one wants to book more than 6 passenger in Indian Railways, at once?

There is option of FTR (Full Tariff Rate registration) where one can book entire train or 6-7 coaches, but that is useful for very large number of people, and it is used by travel agencies or parties who want to book tickets for 700-1000 people at once.

Does Bengaluru Need Faster Transport Services?

Bengaluru, formerly Bangalore, is a world famous IT hub located in South India. There are smart people living there with plenty of brains. But unfortunately their productivity is being marred by slow traffic.

Traffic Jams are plenty and parking vehicles on main roads seems to be the norm. Only God knows how many smart ideas have tasted early death due to torture caused by being stuck into a jam.

Smart has been the buzz word in India, and there are many smart city projects going on. But the city known to produce smart applications has definitely failed to come up with smart solutions to traffic problems.

Here is the experience of famous British author Jeffrey Archer which he shared while launching his new book last year:  "A woman walking on the pavement overtook my car eight times and my car overtook her eight times. Two more times and we would have been engaged."

Well, a picture says thousand words. Have a look at this picture of city's famous R Puram flyover, how much…
