COMMUTERS in Chennai were left stranded at Guindy Railway Station after the passenger footbridge crossing was blocked.
Commuter frustrations were caught on camera.
Pictures showed commuters crowding inside the station as Transport for Guindy (TFL) staff could not do anything and put innocent people’s lives at risk. The station is heading for a disaster because of overcrowding and lack of facilities.
There were just angry commuters, but there was no train delays or panic.
Nancy Woods wrote: “Something mental is going on at Chennai, Guindy Station. There were no Alarms going off and Station staff were helplessly watching WHILE commuters were stranded at peak time rush hour.
Frustrated commuters also demanded updates as they waited outside.
“Those attempting to get to work have complained about the lack of information.
“Commuters had to wait in excess of thirty minutes to leave the station.
” Early warning signs show that delays are expected while a backlog of commuters attempt to make their way to work.
“The situation is precarious and the Tamil Nadu Transport minister of Southern Railway Tamil Nadu has some explanation to do.”
It is unfair if Commuters ought to be able to work it out for themselves without a lot of whingeing. The station TT and superintendent were inefficient to deal with the crowd today.
If you want to contact the Transport Inspector of Tambaram and if you are affected the phone number is mentioned in this video. Mr Prakash should resign.
