Safer suburban railway stations
The stampede on the bridge of the Elphinstone Railway station in Mumbai that caused the death of 23 individuals has brought to fore the need for safe railway stations and infrastructure in the city. We at Mirchi hope that this petition will help the authorities in understanding the grave requirement of solving the existing issues at suburban railway stations in Mumbai. In addition we hope that we can create awareness of the idea of #ThaambMumbaiThaamb spearheaded by Mirchi’s RJ Jeeturaaj, which means we as a city need to stop, take a minute and not rush and panic. With this petition we hope to garner support for 3 major points. 1. Reinforcement of all Foot over bridges 2. Widening of existing bridges. 3. We hope the CM can appeal to the private companies and corporates to allow flexible timings for their employees. This will also help lessen the burden on railway stations at a particular point in time, since work timings will be different, instead of the standard 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
