In a bid to reduce chaos at Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT) at Kurla,the Central railway (CR) has arranged for separate queues for vehicles at the terminus.

According to Shriniwas Mudgerikar,chief spokesperson for CR,the Central Railway has received complaints from passengers about the bad traffic management.

“So we decided to implement separate queues for autorickshaws,taxis and private vehicles to end the congestion. Many a time,in the absence of queues,auto and taxi drivers used to block the way. This often led to clogging of traffic,” said Mudgerikar. “We have also sought help from the traffic police and the Railway Protection Force (RPF) to implement this new change effectively.”

Apart from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) and Dadar,LTT is an important terminal station for long distance trains. It also plays a pivotal role in dispersing the long distance traffic system.
