Tatanagar railway station gets its first elevator

Jamshedpur: The much-awaited elevator on platform no. 1 was inaugurated by station director H K Balmuchu on Tuesday. The elevator installed by Chennai-based Johnson Lifts Private Limited can carry 13 passengers with a total weight of 884 Kg. With this Tatanagar became the first railway station station under Chakradharpur to have an elevator facility.

Work on the elevator project started in July 2016. Apart from platform no. 1 another elevator will shortly start functioning on platform no. 3. Both the elevators on each of the platforms are installed at the Kharagpur-end of the railway station. Balmuchu said the second elevator on platform no. 3 will begin operation in another one month or so.

Senior divisional commercial manager and spokesperson of Chakradharpur railway division Bhaskar said the elevator project is aimed at giving comfort to passengers, especially to the elderly and people with physical disabilities.
