GUWAHATI, Jan 18 - As per the directives of Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, the railway authorities have drawn up a plan to improve illumination levels at selected stations in the Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) zone to �airport standards�.

Pranav Jyoti Sharma, Chief Public Relations Officer of NFR, said eleven railway stations falling in the zone have been identified for the project, along with around 200 stations across the country.

The railway stations in the NFR zone selected for the purpose are those at Guwahati, Kamakhya, Lumding, Dimapur, New Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, Katihar, Purnea, Kishanganj, Barsoi and Agartala.

�Under this ambitious plan, it is proposed to improve the illumination level in various locations of these stations with the provision of better ambience and passenger benefits. As part of it, the Lux levels will be raised to 160 in concourse areas, 115 in circulating areas, 150 in waiting halls, 100 in open platform areas, 200 in covered platform areas, 150 in enquiry-cum-reservation office counters, 150 in footbridges and subway areas, escalators, near lifts and stairs and 50 in outdoor parking areas,� Sharma said.

Lux is the unit of illuminance and luminous emittance, measuring luminous flux per unit area.

Sharma said NFR has already achieved better illumination by 100 per cent use of LED lights in all its stations.

�The provision of improved illumination at stations and their surroundings will help reduce energy consumption. Improved lighting will not only provide effective surveillance mechanism by addressing the security concern of passengers, but it will also add an element of better aesthetics and cleanliness in stations,� said the NFR CPRO, adding that the project is expected to be completed by February 15.
