Thane: Extended Platform Develops Cracks Within 24 Hrs Of Construction
“The platform was opened as soon as the work was completed,” an official stated. Jute bags were used to cover the surface.

The enlarged platform began to show cracks and footprints within 24 hours of Central Railway organising a 63-hour mega block to widen platform 5/6 at Thane station, casting question on the calibre of the job completed. The passengers brought up security worries, especially with the impending monsoon.

Among the busiest platforms at Thane station, platform 5/6 is in charge of over 300 suburban and mail/express trains. 785 pre-cast hollow blocks measuring 1x1x1 metres, 0.5x1x1 metres, and 1.5x1x1 metres were placed along the whole 587-meter length of the platform to widen it by two to three metres. The probability of platform surface settlement is decreased by these pre-cast blocks. This was the first time that platforms have been built using this kind of block.

A top CR official responded to a request for comment by saying, “The platform was opened as soon as the work was completed.” Jute sacks were spread throughout the surface. But the matter has been brought to the attention of the relevant authority, and it will be fixed right away.

The difficult process of expanding the platform was started after a 63-hour embargo was imposed starting at 00:30 on May 31. Two concrete pumps, five Poclains, one Roller, one ballast train, thirty-two tank waggons, and four locomotives were used in the task. To make room for the expanding construction, one footover bridge was also taken down and a new one was built a few days earlier.
