Yards at busy stations like Varanasi, Lucknow to be remodelled

"The problem of trains getting late and delayed at outer signal for longer period at busy stations like Lucknow and Varanasi is mainly due to the yards. To tackle this, yards would be remodelled," Divisional Railway Manager NR (Lucknow) Anil Kumar Lahoti said.
While Varanasi is parliamentary constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh represents Lucknow in Lok Sabha.

Lahoti said that not only Lucknow and Varanasi, there would be remodelling of other stations under the jurisdiction of NR like Faizabad, Sultanpur, Pratapgarh, Rae Bareli and Prayag.

"This work will be completed in two to three years," he said. Lahoti said that yards at these stations were very old and the length of platform was insufficient due to which problems were being faced in train operations.
