“Railway Board has issued instructions to all zonal railways to eliminate all unmanned level crossing gates to ensure better safety in train running. The unmanned gates are eliminated by providing gateman, by constructing LHS (limited height subways) or by direct closure by taking necessary NOC (no objection certificate) from the concerned district administration,” the official statement issued by chief public relations officer, Pranav Jyoti Sharma said.

There were 258 level crossing gates in Tinsukia division.
