Demand to install alarm at rly station

Regular passengers from Edappally railway station have suggested installing an alarm in the railway station vicinity to warn pedestrians who cross the tracks. Ten people have died in the past one year, the latest being the death of a retired village officer, Andrews V, on Tuesday evening.
“The idea of installing an alarm emerged after Tuesday’s incident. Incidentally, two people had a miraculous escape on Friday when they were crossing the tracks. If an alarm is installed and speakers attached to it, it can alert pedestrians while crossing the tracks. The station master can operate the alarm whenever train passes through,” said R D Manikandan, convener, Edappally railway passengers’ association.
The association members on Saturday paid homage to Andrews by lighting lamps.
The Thiruvananthapuram railway division authorities have installed a similar alarm system at Mulankunnathukavu station. “The alarm is directly connected to the signalling system. Whenever green signal is given for trains, the alarm starts ringing. It stops soon after the green light turns red,” said a source from Mulankunnathukavu station.
