Pune commuters faced yet another day of frustration on Tuesday, February 20, 2024, as train delays at Hadapsar station disrupted their schedules for the second time in two months. The prolonged halt of trains near Hadapsar station, lasting over an hour, has become a recurrent issue, prompting a wave of complaints from regular Metro passengers reliant on punctual transportation.

Numerous daily commuters have voiced their grievances about the persistent tardiness of trains attributed to extended stops at Hadapsar station. One commuter, in particular, cited the delay of train number 12136, originating from Nagpur to Pune, which was held up at Hadapsar for over 30 minutes, resulting in an hour-long delay in reaching Pune.

Expressing frustration, a user on X (formerly Twitter) took to social media at 12:30 PM, recounting their ordeal, “We were meant to arrive in Pune by 9:30 am. Although initially delayed by half an hour, we were willing to accommodate. However, the train was forced to wait at Hadapsar station for an additional hour, a recurring occurrence, followed by further delays upon reaching Pune station.”

Responding to mounting complaints, Ram Paul Bargappa, a railway PRO official, acknowledged the challenges, stating, “Platform 1 is the primary large platform, while others are comparably smaller. When accommodating larger trains, they necessitate platform 1. Additionally, frequent delays across multiple trains necessitate schedule adjustments, contributing to the inconvenience faced by commuters. We are actively addressing the issue and striving to minimize disruptions for passengers.”

Efforts are underway to alleviate the strain on commuters caused by delays at Hadapsar station, as authorities work towards enhancing the efficiency and punctuality of train services for the benefit of all travelers in the Pune region.
