COVID 19 HOWRAH JUNCTION

Image ID: 224679883

Caption : Howrah Junction, popularly known as Howrah Station,on the eve of the resumption of passenger train operations for 15 pairs (total 30 returns trains) in wake of extended lockdown to curb the spread of COVID 19 Coronavirus pandemic on May 11, 2020, This is the oldest and largest railway complex in India, located in Howrah on the west bank of the Hooghly River serving the twin cities of Howrah and Kolkata. About 600 passenger trains pass through the station each day requiring its 23 platforms (the largest number of platforms in Indian railways) and serving more than one million passengers per day. On 17 June 1851, George Turnbull, the Chief Engineer of the East Indian Railway Company and his team of engineers submitted plans for a railway station at Howrah. In 1852, construction started at the estimated cost of 2,50,000 rupees (Two Lakhs and Fifty Thousand rupees). The first locomotive left Howrah on 18 June 1853 for the 37.5 miles to Pundoah. To handle the increasing passengers traffic the station was expanded to include 8 new platforms from 15 to 23 on the south side of the station in 1980s. India's first double-decker train left Howrah for Dhanbad In October 2011. Photo by: Rajeev Bhatt/ The Hindu
