Churchgate is an important station on the WR’s suburban network in the metropolis. These benches are outcome of a plastic bottle collection drive held in association with a private company, the official said.
At the same time, Indian Railways has also joined the government step for environmental conservation. Indian Railways has taken another new initiative. Railways have installed three benches made of recycled plastic at Churchgate station of Western Railway.
Being made of plastic, these benches are quite strong, as well as weighed. Railways said that this will help protect the environment from contamination.
