Mumbai CSMT 2.0!! Too many updates about Mumbai CSMT redevelopment? Here's what exactly happening at Mumbai's mega terminus station, formerly called Bombay Victoria Terminus. Developing area around the station & convert the entire complex into a mega hub, like an airport...1/7
This will involve clearing the space around the station by shifting a few of offices to other places. Like the office of @drmmumbaicr will be shifted to Byculla and other such moves. This will create open space around, mostly behind, the iconic building for free circulation. 2/7
Rail yard remodelling, integrating passenger areas, moving rail maintenance works with commercial development around the harbour line platform (which has been independently planned by the zonal rlys to move near platform 18 earlier to make way for 5th-6th lines etc) 3/7

So what's the politics of Ganapati special trains for Konkan from Maharashtra? Here's a sequence of events from beginning. On July 23 @Central_Railway seeks opinion of Maharashtra govt led by @CMOMaharashtra
@OfficeofUT & Transport Minister @advanilparab on it. This is the letter
In response, Director, Disaster Management Unit, Maharashtra in their letter dated 7.8.2020 informed that special trains may be scheduled to the Konkan Region for the Ganapati Festival.
The CR then immediately scheduled the special trains and sent for Railway Board’s approval. Railway Board approved on August 9 subject to following the Standard Operations Procedure (SOP) of Ministry of Home Affairs & Inter-District travel norms of the Maharashtra Government

CR's AC LOCAL TRAIN TODAY! More discipline, but more crowd in rush hour. The Air Conditioned EMU local at Thane this morning had only ticketed passengers. However, the crowding on island platform increased. @mid_day
The train was empty and overflowing crowd on platforms on either side, which could not get in. @Central_Railway has not promoted the train as they should have.
A few quick solutions that can be done...The 9:09 am Vashi train prior to AC EMU has 3 compartments reserved for women. This adds to more crowding on the island platform. This can be undone. This traib arrives on pf 10 before AC EMU. There is another 914am one that comes on pf9.
