The Railway authorities had sufficient time to rectify such issues well before the damages. Sheer laziness and poor leadership and administration. Railway Department is another poorly handled institution.

Poor maintenance. Look at the tracks in Fort Railway station, only a few nails are keeping the track in place. I met an old men who said that the trains in the 1950's were travelling faster and with less bumps than todays train - while most of the wagons have never been replaced.
