Even when the Railway authorities have been claiming to eliminate all level crossing gates and making all crossings safe, the crossing on Kalamna road pose serious danger for the commuters.
The crossing has a height barrier, but the lacks proper gate or a person deputed to monitor the traffic.
Those crossing the railway track do it on their own risk.
A video shot by a news channel has become viral.
Those waiting for a goods train to pass from the crossing stated that it has posed a serious threat to the commuters. People crossing face problems even with the strong beam of light of the vehicles coming from the opposite direction.
The Railways has made rules for the train drivers to sound the horn in a particular manner while crossing such gates. However, common persons are not aware of these rules. At the same time it is difficult to estimate the speed with which the train is arriving or understand the distance at which it has arrived.
If this is the situation on the outskirts of a major city like Nagpur, what could be elsewhere, is difficult to imagine.
