NF Rly installs water-level monitoring device

GUWAHATI, June 25: As part of the nationwide programme to adopt modern technology to alert Railways regarding abnormal rise in water level of major rivers, the NF Railway has installed a system based on Radar Technology at Saraighat rail-cum-road Bridge recently. The system will automatically monitor the water level in Brahmaputra River and send SMS to pre-determined cell phones at regular interval of time which is an improvement over manual mode of recording being adopted so far, an official communiqué said. Similar system will be installed in total 10 bridges within NF Railways very soon. Railwaymen looking after the system will get alert signals as soon as the water level in the river crosses danger level, so that train services can be suitably regulated to obviate any danger, the communiqué added.
