Central Railway, Western Railway together removed 1.8L cubic metre of garbage from tracks

The Central and Western Railway together have have removed close to 1.80 lakh cubic meters of garbage and muck from rail tracks and platforms in the past few month. Yet the work remains far from over. These huge quantum of garbage shows how little people care about the lifeline that ferries 80 lakh people everyday. The same garbage and muck leads to disruption of train services during monsoon as they clog the gutters and drainage.
