pass over track in stations can be avoided by some measures. actually this is done for the purpose of catching rain in a hurry or last moment catching of train.
1. due to lack of information about train arrival which come late due to various reasons.
a.) I suggest govt should develop good mobile apps which can track exact location of the train so that the passenger may come in time.
b.) govt should provide online booking of even general tickets of even passenger trains so that no person will wait in queue at the railway counter or at least a few number may be reduced. which generally causes passenger to run over the platform over the track.
c.) maintaining a call center which can give train timings and platform number, so that passenger will actually know n which platform he should go.
and good digital display availability all over the station.
d.) fixing the train platform to be fixed as far as possible.
e.) at level crossing well this is the biggest problem ever so having small flyovers and under bridges r one costly solutions.
but the gets which are been closed for the train are closed way to long before and after arrival of train so using gps tracking of train gates are to be closed exactly for minimum time of train to pass with audio visual alarms.
