To save Mumbaikars from inconvenience owing to mega blocks,the Central Railway (CR) has decided to prepare a mega block calendar every month.  

S Mudgeriker,Chief Public Relations officer,CR,said,“At the start of a month the list of mega blocks will be made available. In the new rakes,announcements will be made regarding date,time and location of mega blocks for commuters. Every mega block will be displayed at boards at stations with time,date and location. Also,there will be announcements via public announcement systems every Saturday.”

A station master,on conditions of anonymity,said,“When a mega block is done,as per plan,many trains are diverted,many cancelled and many run on only one track. It creates problems for commuters but with this calendar commuters will be able to plan their travel better.”
