World’s 2nd largest Operation Control Center for DFC in Prayagraj: Along with the operation of trains from the control room, track disturbances will also be detected. As soon as the fault is detected, its location and details will appear on the screen. Then the fault can be removed immediately by sending a patrolling team present nearby.
The world’s second largest hi-tech rail control center has been built in India. This control room, built in an area of about 4.5 acres, is built in Prayagraj. The country’s most ambitious railway project of the control room is connected to the Dedicated Freight Corridor. This is the country’s largest railway control room on the Eastern Corridor.
Construction at a cost of 75 crores
Equipped with many features, this control room is the largest modern and hi-tech center in the country, whose construction has cost more than 75 crores. let you know
At present, two corridors are being prepared in the first phase in the country, Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor which is 1875 km long from Ludhiana to Dankuni Bengal. At the same time, the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor is being built from Dadri in Noida to Mumbai Port, whose length is 1504 km. Work is going on on a war footing to complete these two corridors.
In Prayagraj, about a quarter-kilometer long bridge being built on the Yamuna river is also a part of this corridor, work is being done on a war footing in its construction.
Prime Minister has inaugurated
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already inaugurated the prepared parts of both the corridors. Freight trains have started operating in some parts of both the corridors. At the same time, goods trains are running from Khurja to Bhaupur in the 351 km long Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor. All the trains of the Dedicated Freight Corridor will now be controlled from this one place from the Hi-Tech Control Room prepared at Prayagraj.
Features of control room
The length of the video wall present in the railway control room is more than 90 meters, as the train starts running on any part of the corridor, the screen in the control room will increase accordingly. At present, the control and monitoring of trains in the Railway Department is done by different people at the level of different divisions. This work is very challenging. At the same time, the department will now use the same system for passenger trains as well. The advantage of this hi-tech system is that the railway line and running trains can be monitored from under one roof.
Watch the whole country from 3 centers
According to railway officials, the biggest control room in the world is only in China. In India, a similar control room for the Western Corridor is being built in Ahmedabad and for the backup safety of both, a third control room is being prepared in Noida.
Advantages of Central Monitoring Mechanism
This makes it easy to decide the route of trains from one place. Chances of train accident can be prevented. Track faults as well as faults in the power lines above the track can be monitored round the clock. Similarly, powerline trips or any other error can be rectified at the same time.
Late-latifi will go away
Usually, as soon as you take the name of the railway, a picture of delay in trains comes to your mind, but now as the goods train shifts on the Dedicated Freight Corridor, the delay picture of the railway will also change, then not only the passenger train will reach on time. At the same time, the goods train will also fulfill its target at the right time. That is why it is being called the control room of revolutionary change in the country.
