Bhubaneswar, July 6: As the auspicious occasion of Rath Yatra approaches, East Coast Railway (ECoR) is gearing up to ensure a safe and hassle-free travel experience for pilgrims.

 In anticipation of increased passenger traffic during this festive season, ECoR has launched a Special Awareness Drive aimed at enhancing passenger safety in overcrowded trains.

Pilgrims and travellers are urged to refrain from risky behaviours such as travelling on footboards, buffers, or rooftops of train compartments. The safety of passengers is the utmost priority of Railways.

The ECoR has also advised pilgrims and passengers not to carry any inflammable items, accepting food or drinks from strangers and touching unattended baggage or suspicious items. 

In addition to cautioning passengers, ECoR has enlisted the support of Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel to enforce crowd control measures and monitor against anti-social activities. RPF staff and Security personnel are deputed to keep constant watch and to be in vigilant in crowded areas, ensuring the safety and security of all travelers, especially pilgrims and devotees.

Recognizing the surge in demand during Rath Yatra, the ECoR has announced the operation of at least 315 special trains from various parts of Odisha, West Bengal, Chhatisgarh, and Andhra Pradesh, complementing the regular services to Puri. These additional services aim to accommodate the influx of pilgrims attending Rath Yatra, Bahuda Yatra, Sunavesa, and Adharapana Days.

To further enhance passenger convenience, the ECoR has provided additional ticket counters, enquiry counters, and information centers at key locations. Special amenities including catering services, sanitation facilities, medical assistance booths, and enhanced security arrangements have been put in place to ensure a comfortable journey for all travellers.

The ECoR encourages all pilgrims to cooperate with Railway Staff and adhere to safety guidelines during their journey. Let us all come together to make this Rath Yatra a memorable and safe experience for everyone.
