  • Hyderabad, Jan 19 : Andhra Pradesh will press for introduction of 35 new trains, including 17 Mail/Express, eight passenger and 10 Multi-Modal Transit System (MMTS), in the 2011-12 Union Railway Budget.

    Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy will meet Union Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee in New Delhi on January 21 and submit the state’s proposals for new trains, sources in the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) here said.

    Kiran Kumar held a high-level meeting with state Transport Minister Botsa Satyanarayana, South Central Railway General Manager M S Jayanth and other top officials here today and discussed the pending railway projects related to Andhra Pradesh.

    Though the Planning Commission cleared the second phase expansion of MMTS in Hyderabad-Secunderabad twin cities, the Railway Board has not yet given its nod to the project that has become highly popular and essential, the sources said.

    "MMTS is a popular capacity-building project with a high rate of return (12 per cent). The state government has agreed to bear two-third of the project cost," they said.

    There was also demand for increasing the number of diesel and electrical multiple unit (DEMUMEMU) trains in suburban and inter-city areas particularly in Rayalaseema and Telangana regions. "The SCR is not getting adequate rakes (trains) because of which increasing the number of DEMUMEMU services has not become possible. We need at least five DEMUMEMUs in Rayalaseema and Telangana," the sources added.New ExpressSuper-fast trains are also required in high traffic density routes like Kacheguda-Tirupati (via Dharmavaram), Secunderabad-Kakinada, Hyderabad-Visakhapatnam, Secunderabad-Howrah (Duronto), Tirupati-Guntur and Secunderabad-Narsapur.

    The Chief Minister would also discuss pending projects like wagon workshop at Kazipet and development of temple-town Tirupati into world-class railway station.

    Many other projects that were announced in the 2010-11 Railway Budget, but not yet sanctioned, would also be taken up with Mamata Banerjee, the sources said.

  • More trains for Tirupati

    trains from Secunderabad, Yeshwantpur and Coimbatore


    TIRUPATI: Keeping its promise made in the last Budget, the Centre has sanctioned three trains from Tirupati to Secunderabad, Yeshwantpur (Bangalore) and Coimbatore, making travel easier and comfortable to the pilgrims pouring in from these cities.

    Schedule

    While Coimbatore-Tirupati-Yeshwantpur Inter-City Express made its first trip on Tuesday, with formal inauguration at Coimbatore and Yeshwantpur, the Secunderabad-Tirupati Secunderabad Express was formally flagged off by the Minister of State for Railways K.H. Muniyappa and the Chief Minister N.Kirankumar Reddy on Wednesday, which incidentally is the first train to link Mr. Reddy's constituents directly to the State capital.

    The tri-weekly 12758 Inter-City Express starts at Coimbatore by 0600 hrs to reach Tirupati by 1330 hrs on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The 2544 Tirupati-Yeshwantpur Inter-City Express, starts at 1450 hrs to reach the destination by 2055 hrs on Fridays, Sundays and Tuesdays.

    In the return journey, 12543 Inter-City Express starts at Yeshwantpur by 0700 hrs to reach Tirupati by 1330 hrs on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays, from where it becomes Train No. 12757 and starts at 1450 hrs to reach Coimbatore by 2240 hrs.

    Similarly, the 12732 Secunderabad-Tirupati Express starts 1750 hrs to reach Tirupati by 0930hrs on Mondays and Wednesdays. As Padmavathi Express runs only for five days a week, the Railways have introduced this train on the other two days i.e., Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    This however runs via Pakala, Piler, Kalikiri, Madanapalle, Dharmavaram, Anantapur, Guntakal, Wadi and Vikarabad to reach Secunderabad, bringing into use the recently gauge-converted Pakala-Dharmavaram section. This much-awaited train now brings the upland areas of Chittoor and Anantapur districts of the backward Rayalaseema region into the nation's broad gauge network.

    More trains for Tirupati are in the pipeline going by the budget announcement. The Chennai-Tirupati-Nellore-Chennai circular MEMU train, which will be a boon to frequent travellers and season-ticket holders, the Bhopal-Tirupati-Kanchipuram Express and the Tirupati-Madurai Express are expected to see light by the end of this financial year.

  • Source (http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/hyderabad/Nod-for-wagon-factory-at-Kazipet/articleshow/7368405.cms)
    The railway board has given its nod for shifting the wagon manufacturing factory from Secunderabad to Kazipet.

    Union minister for railways Mamata Banerjee had announced that the factory would be set up at Secunderabad during the 2010-11 railway budget. But this invited protests from opposition parties which said that the railway ministry had earlier agreed to set up a railway coach factory at Kazipet for which land was also allocated.

    Following this, the ministry constituted an expert committee which also recommended that the unit be set up at Kazipet.

    On Wednesday, Union minister of state for railways K Muniyappa along with chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy flagged off two new trains and one extended train at Secunderabad station on Wednesday.

    The new trains include Secunderabad-Tirupati bi-weekly Express via Pakala, Kacheguda-Akola Express (extended from Nanded) and Secunderabad-Munuguru tri-weekly Express.

    Speaking on the occasion, the chief minister urged the junior railway minister to include Vizag (Waltair) division in South Central Railway or be made a separate zone. He said by merging it with East Coast Railway, people of the state were forced to go to Bhuvaneshwar for everything including recruitment.

    The CM also wanted the Railways to speed up the MMTS phase-II, which would help ease the traffic in the city.

    Muniyappa said out of the 21 trains announced for the state in the last budget, 16 trains were already introduced. Remaining trains will be introduced by March 31, he added. SCR general manager M S Jayant said they had sent a proposal for increasing the frequency of the Secunderabad-Munuguru tri-weekly train into daily service.

    Source (http://news.in.msn.com/national/article.aspx?cp-documentid=4861528)
    Country�s first jerk-free Duranto train is all set to roll out from the Rail Coach factory here within a few days, a top rail officer said today.
    The new train will run on Mumbai-Secundrabad section in February, RCF General Manager Pardeep Kumar said.

    The train has been fitted with tight-lock couplers, imported from Sweden, to ensure smooth ride, he said.

    These double-cushioned couplers are being used in high-speed trains abroad and have been tested by the Research Development and Standard Organization in Sweden, the rail officer said.

    Earlier, one-side cushioned couplers were being used in the coaches, he said.
    If the experiment is successful, then old couplers in all Shatabdi and Rajdhani trains would be replaced with the new ones, the GM said.

    The RCF has also developed biological toilets to keep rail tracks clean, he said.
    The first rake of coaches with biological toilets has been running successfully on the Gwalior-Varanasi section, Kumar said.

    The RCF has rolled out 1219 coaches of different types in the first nine months of this fiscal and will achieve the target to manufacture 1600 coaches during the year, he said.

    The production of stainless steel coaches has also been doubled this year, the GM said.

    The great thing in IR is AndhraPradesh doesn't have a Shatabdi train.. IR can introduce Shatabhi between SC-VJA OR SC-RAJAMUNDRY OR SC-NAGPUR OR SC-PUNE OR SC-GNTR-ONGOLE.
    Even smalll states in North India (Not NorthEast) has Shatabhi, But such a big state Ap doesn't have Shatabdi..

  • Spl train from Kolhapur to Hyderabad

    Anticipating strong protests from MPs, MLAs, commerce associations and travelling public of a few districts in North Karnataka, the South Central Railway (SCR) has decided to compensate for the loss of regular train services between Kolhapur by running a special train till March 30.

    The SCR decision to delink Kolhapur-Tirupati Haripriya Link Express and run a regular train between Kolhapur and Tirupati, and introduce an independent bi-weekly between Kolhapur and Hyderabad had led to widespread resentment in the region.

    Twice a week

    Commuters in the region could use the train service to reach Hyderabad only twice a week, instead of every day, before the delinking.

    Hence, the SCR has decided to run special express trains for four days a week between Hyderabad-Kolhapur (07143/07144) to clear extra traffic. However, the bi-weekly services will continue.

    Accordingly, the special express will depart Hyderabad at 11.30 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from February 15 and arrive at Kolhapur at 11.45 pm the next day.

    The services of the last special train from the Hyderabad end concludes on March 30.

    En route, the special train will pass through Chittapur (2.59 am), Yadgir (4.21 am), Raichur (5.36 am) Guntakal (8.45 am) Bellary (9.55 am), Koppal (11.51 am) Hubli (2.25 pm), Belgaum (5.30 pm) and Miraj (9.15 pm).

    In the return direction, the special train will depart Kolhapur at 7.30 am on Thursdays, Fridays, Mondays and Tuesdays from February 17 and arrive at Hyderabad at 4 am the next day.

    The special train will arrive at Miraj (8.45 am), Belgaum (11.23 am), Hubli (2.30 pm), Koppal (4.29 pm), Bellary (6.48 pm), Guntakal (7.40 pm), Raichur (9.56 pm) and Yadgir (10.44).

  • If the Shatabdi is granted and runs at an average of 100 kmph, that will make HYD -VIZAG journey under 8 hours, and the same train can be run in both directions on each day. Leave HYD at 5 am, reach vizag at 1 pm, then leave vizag at 2pm and reach HYD by 10pm. That'll be awesome.

    Ofcourse, Anyway we got Duronto in this budget. But it would be better if it is daily.

    And we got Shatabdi too b/n Pune and SEC'BAD. Railways had run special shatabdi in last year and continuing with old shatabdhi rakes. If the same is made regular then what is the use. Atleast they should replace the old rakes with Latest LHB coaches. Then only it means new train provided otherwise just special train.
    - gajamsuresh, 2 years ago
  • In this budget, almost majority trains are weekly trains. So, the same train will be served for other destination on nextday. Like that a single train serves 2-3 routes and claims, introduced 3 trains. This is literal cheating. If they introduce the same train as daily frequency then they don't have trains.

    IR is literally cheating by introducing weekly tr
    ains.

  • Railway Budget 2011: Kiran Reddy welcomes Rail Budget

    HYDERABAD: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy has welcomed the Union Railway Budget 2011-12 and described it as "common man's welfare budget".

    In a statement here, the Chief Minister appreciated the Railway Budget for the concessions announced to physically- challenged persons for travel on Rajdhani and Shatabdi Express trains.

    He also welcomed the Pradhan Mantri Rail Vikas Yojana for 114 socially-desirable projects and for creating a separate sports cadre in the Railways to encourage young talent in the country.

    The Chief Minister hoped that in near future many more projects would be allotted to Andhra Pradesh.

    Kiran Kumar thanked MPs from the state for their efforts in getting new sanctions and projects for AP.

    He also thanked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh , Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee and Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee for the sanctions made to the state.

    Leader of Opposition N Chandrababu Naidu came down heavily on the Railway Minister for "neglecting Andhra Pradesh yet again."

    "This is not the first time injustice has been done to AP in the Railway Budget. It has been happening for several years now. In fact, the budget is no good even for the country," Naidu told reporters here.

  • 23 trains cancelled ahead of Telangana rail blockade
    Hyderabad, Feb 28, (IANS):

    The South Central Railway (SCR) on Monday night cancelled 23 trains between Hyderabad and other destinations in view of Tuesday's rail blockade in Telangana called by groups demanding separate statehood for the region.

    Hyderabad-Delhi AP Express, Yeshwantpur-Secunderabad Garib Rath, Vijayawada-Secunderabad Satavahana Express, Guntur-Vikarabad Palnadu Express, Tirupati-Hyderabad Rayalaseema Express, Guntur-Secunderabad Golconda Express and Gudur-Secunderabad Simhapur Express are among the key trains cancelled.

    The SCR also plans to divert some trains like Bangalore-Gorakhpur Express. It also announced cancellation of all Multi-Modal Transport System (MMTS) trains (local trains) in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad Tuesday.

    The Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC), which is spearheading the movement for a separate state, has asked people to stop the trains by squatting on the tracks in the entire region, comprising 10 districts, including Hyderabad.

    The JAC, which includes the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and other regional groups, is demanding that the central government introduce a bill for formation of a separate Telangana state in parliament.

    Telangana leaders of the ruling Congress and the main opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) have also declared their support for the rail blockade.

    JAC convenor M. Kodandaram said the daylong programme would begin at 6 a.m. Tuesday and bring the movement of trains to a complete halt. He appealed to people to make the programme a success by squatting on the tracks in every village.

    The SCR, which has its headquarters here, operates many trains through Telangana, connecting cities like Visakhapatnam, Chennai, Bangalore and Delhi.

    Both police and railway authorities have warned the protesters that strict action would be taken against them if they resort to attacks on passengers or railway property. The police will patrol important trunk routes and beef up security at railway stations to prevent any untoward incidents.

    Director General of Police Aravinda Rao said police were making all arrangements for protection of people and property. The district police, the Government Railway Police Force and the Railway Protection Force (RPF) are jointly coordinating the arrangements.

    He said information and past experience show that there is likelihood of sabotage to railway tracks with fish plates being removed and signal equipment being tampered with or destroyed. These can result in serious accidents, causing great loss of human life.

    "Cases will be booked under the Railway Act, 1989, in addition to IPC (Indian Penal Code) sections of law. Punishments under the Railway Act will be more rigorous for offences like stoppage of trains, squatting on railway track etc," the police chief said in a statement.

Atleast they should replace the old rakes with Latest LHB coaches. Then only it means new train provided otherwise just special train.

    I checked the time gain on some Duronto's elsewhere against the regular express and superfast trains. Looks like we'll gain abt half hour of travel time from this SC-VIZAG Duronto :bash: Average speeds of Durontos are like 5 kmph more than the Superfast trains. I hope atleast the timings are convenient - not too late not too early arrival/departure. Keep it just like the Godavari express.

    I think they'll extend the Hyd-Pune Shatabdi to Mumbai in the next year's railways budget :D

  • Shirdi Special Express to be continued

    Purandeswari gets favourable response from Railway Board Executive Director

    Board official is said to have promised to get the train regularised

    VISAKHAPATNAM: The Railway authorities in Delhi have finally agreed to regularise the Visakhapatnam – Shirdi Special Express on a representation from Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development D. Purandeswari, who represents Visakhapatnam in the Lok Sabha.

    The special train, introduced two years ago, has gained immense popularity and overwhelming patronage.

    Special trains are normally regularised after a period of six months when they have sufficient patronage.

    The train was being continued as a ‘special' ignoring the pleas of people of the region. It wasn't included in the Railway Budget either last year or this year.The bi-weekly train was reduced to once a week a few months ago.

    The ECoR authorities introduced a special train from Bhubaneswar to Shirdi once a week causing apprehensions among people of the region that the ECoR authorities are planning to withdraw the popular Visakhapatnam – Shirdi Express.

    With its last trip slated for June 29 and no announcement on its extension, it was strongly felt that the special would be withdrawn.

    Ms. Purandeswari, who arrived here on Friday, spoke to Executive Director (coaching) of the Railway Board Mukhesh Nigam in New Delhi on the phone and underlined the importance of continuing the special train. Mr. Nigam is said to have told her that the Railway Board meeting was on and the train would be included in the new Railway Time Table to be issued on July 1. He is also said to have promised to get the train regularised.

  • Circular train late on inaugural run

    The MEMU train connects Tirupati and Nellore to Chennai

    New arrival: The inaugural Chennai-Nellore-Tirupati-Chennai circular train arriving at Tirupati railway station on Tuesday.

    The much-awaited Chennai-Nellore-Tirupati-Chennai circular MEMU train arrived without much ado from Nellore at the Tirupati railway station on Tuesday, while its departure towards Chennai getting delayed by 45 minutes proved to be an avoidable irritant for the passengers.

    The circular train was announced in the last budget and was meant to ease congestion in the vital Chennai-Nellore trunk route, Chennai-Tirupati route via Tiruthani and Puttur and also on the Tirupati-Nellore route via Gudur.

    Apart from the pilgrim angle, the trains became essential with the Tirupati-Nellore-Tada belt gaining importance as an industrial hub, what with the setting up of Special Economic Zones and mega manufacturing facilities.

    There has been a steep increase in the number of commuters in this region and the introduction of two circular trains has indeed been a welcome relief.

    Low-key affair

    While the inauguration was a low-key affair, the trains were formally flagged off at Chennai Central station this morning.

    The two rakes are intended to travel to Nellore and Tirupati respectively, which will head to Tirupati/Nellore and then both towards Chennai, thus connecting the two bustling cities of southern Andhra Pradesh to Chennai metropolis.

    The Chennai-bound train No.66036 left by 1645 hours, roughly 45 minutes behind schedule.

    Earlier, the train No.66033 left the station for Nellore by around 11.25 am. Between the train No. 16054 Madras Express (10 a.m.) and the newly-introduced MEMU (4 p.m.), there are no trains in the high-density traffic route towards Chennai for six long hours, forcing pilgrims and local traders to pay through their nose for buses and private modes of transport.

    While expressing happiness at the introduction of a new train, the local public requests the railway authorities to narrow the time gap.

  • Suburban train for Visakhapatna; survey soon

    The Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority has decided to launch a suburban train to ease the growing traffic, said the Vuda vice-chairman, Mr Kona Sasidhar. Speaking at the meet the press programme organised by the VJF Press Club here on Friday, Mr Sasidhar said in the first phase the suburban train will run from Convent Junction to NTPC Simhadri project at Paravada. The RITES has been asked to conduct a survey and submit a report within three months, he said. He said Vuda would seek funds from Steel Plant and NTPC to run this train.

    He said the license given to MGM Selvee World in Vuda Park has been cancelled and the amusement park would be given to another agency shortly. The Vuda Park itself would get a facelift soon and the main fountain would be repaired. A traffic park would be established to create awareness among the children. The Vuda Children Theatre is being repaired and modernised to attract the children and similarly the park coming up in the old jail premises was being created as per the wishes of the people, Mr Sasidhar said. The Vuda is contemplating to build houses for the poor and few ventures were being planned at Kapulauppada and Pendurthy, he said. There would be no more layout regularisation or building penalisation scheme following orders from the court. He said due to regularisation of illegal constructions, the future plans were being upset.

    Source :IBN
    HYDERABAD: The state government has agreed to provide 2,000 acres of land to the Railways to complete the pending projects of laying new railway lines and building stations across the state within five years.

    The decision was taken at a high-level meeting between chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and Union minister of state for railways K H Muniyappa at the Secretariat on Tuesday.

    Later speaking to reporters at the Rail Nilayam, Muniyappa said many of the ongoing works have been stopped due to nonavailability of land.

    The committee will meet every month to review the projects.

    The minister said while 600 acres is needed for a freight terminal, another 300 acres is required for establishing a passenger train terminal in the twin cities.

    Besides, the government has also agreed to provide 55 acres of land at Warangal to set up a wagon manufacturing unit and the second phase of the MMTS project.

  • Chamber for separate railway zone

    Satellite stations to ease traffic in Vijayawada mooted

    A roundtable on ‘Vijayawada city development – railway' organised by the Andhra Chamber of Commerce and Industry has underscored the need for public representatives' initiative and involvement in prevailing upon the Railways to improve Vijayawada railway station.

    Delinking Vijayawada from Secunderabad General Manager jurisdiction, a separate zone should be carved out for Vijayawada- Guntur-Visakhapatnam, they felt.

    Addressing the meeting on Tuesday, the speakers stressed the need for constructing satellite stations to ease the traffic at Vijayawada railway station.

    A few trains could be diverted or stopped at the satellite stations so that the platforms available here could be optimally used. Trains such as Duranto and Garibrath stop here for more than 20 minutes. But, the passengers cannot alight or board here.

    Such trains could be diverted from satellite stations, they said. People here hardly benefit though 145 trains pass through the station every day.

    The quota for Vijayawada is very less, or none at all.

    Except intercity trains, the timings of every train suit none. So, there is a necessity to press more trains originating from Vijayawada to important cities such as Bangalore.
    Meeting

    Expressing the view that MPs were not taking necessary initiatives in developing the Vijayawada railway station, which is a major junction in the State, they pointed that the proposals such as trains to Raichur, Shonnur, Yeshwanthpur, fast passenger to Secunderabad remained on paper.

    ACCI president M. Muralikrishna said a meeting with SCR General Manager and the Railway Minister was being planned at Amma Kalayana Mandapam here shortly. The meeting would bring the issues pending with the railway department to their notice and highlight the necessity to develop the Vijayawada railway station, he said.

    Vijayawada Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Gaddam Subba Rao, Andhra Motor Merchants' Association secretary Subba Rao, Divisional Railway Users' Consultative Committee member S. Subba Rao, AP Lorry Owners' Association president Y.V. Eswar Rao, Lorry Owners' Association secretary K. Rama Rao, Taxation Bar Association president Pulla Rao, and Builders' Association secretary Siva Reddy spoke.

  • The waiting time for all trains passing through or getting terminated at Vijayawada Railway station will come down considerably with the South Central Railway installing the Route Relaying Interlocking Facility.

    Vijayawada is centrally located on the railway map and trains from Mumbai, New Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, and Bangalore come in or go out in three different directions, but a technical lacuna prevented officials to allow any train from any direction onto any one of the 10 platforms. This difficulty had led to trains waiting at the outer signals agonisingly for long duration.

    In some cases passengers get down from the compartments and walk to the nearby road point leading even to fatal accidents on a couple of occasions.

    Trains coming from Visakhapatnam side used to get restricted to platforms 1 to 4 and those coming from Hyderabad or Chennai to a few others. With the major work likely to begin after the monsoon rains, all the tracks would be inter-connected with overhead power lines laid to facilitate taking in any train onto any platform, Vijayawada Divisional Railway Manager Anurag told The Hindu.

    These works would, however, entail cancellation of several express/passenger trains for at least 3 weeks and some trains may be rescheduled or diverted to take up civil construction works at the Railway Yard in the city. This facility, which was felt necessary following increase in number of trains about 10 years ago, was pending for execution.

    “People will be given three months' notice for cancellation/diversion of trains so that no inconvenience was caused to them, while making advance reservations,” Mr. Anurag added. The entire facility was likely to be operational by February-March 2012.

  • Gunupur-Puri train service starts, Rayagada elated

    KORAPUT: The Gunupur railway station in Rayagada district wore a festive look as around 10,000 people flocked to the station to witness the inaugural run of the Gunupur-Puri passenger train on Sunday. Connecting Gunupur-Naupada in Andhra Pradesh with broad gauge was a long-standing demand of the locals, after the railways stopped plying the only Gunupur-Naupada via Parlakhemundi train on narrow gauge in 2002.

    "Today we are very happy to have our demand fulfilled. The train will be helpful not only to the people of Gunupur, but also to villagers of around 100 villages of Rayagada and Gajapati districts, as train fare is much cheaper than bus fare," said the convenor of the South Orissa Ralilway User Association, Satya Prakash Panda. "Undoubtedly, business and education in this Maoisthit area will spread with better rail connectivity," he added. Officials said the train will leave Gunupur at 8 am and will reach Puri at 9 pm. In its 90-km journey, the train will pass through as many as 14 stations.

  • 55 trains cancelled after 36-hour ‘rail roko' call in Telangana

    All train services in the Telangana region are slated to come to a grinding halt from Saturday morning, signifying virtual stoppage of every form of mass transport in the region as the Telangana Joint Action Committee (T-JAC) ratcheted up its agitation demanding a separate State.

    Anticipating obstruction of train movement by activists in response to the T-JAC's call for a 36-hour-long ‘rail roko' from 6 a.m. on Saturday till 6 p.m. on Sunday, the South Central Railway cancelled 55 express trains, diverted 55, partially cancelled 48, rescheduled eight and regulated two others besides stopping all local train services in the Twin Cities.

    Many trains like Howrah-Hyderabad, Nanded-Bangalore, Chennai-Hyderabad express and Hyderabad-Trivandrum express trains have been short-terminated at various places.

    As the strike will also impact long-distance trains in the North-South and East-West corridors, the railways have diverted them through routes on the Konkan Railway, the Wadi station in Maharashtra and Duvvada near Visakhapatnam on the East Coast Railway. Hundreds of personnel of Railway Police and the A. P. Special Battalion are being deployed to protect railway property.

    As the general strike entered the 11 {+t} {+h} day on Friday, auto rickshaw driver unions also announced a two-day-long bandh till Sunday midnight. Buses of the A. P. State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) in the Twin Cities and the rest of the Telangana region are already off the road for the fifth day while schools and colleges remain closed.

    As political parties in the region vie with one another to enforce the strike, supporters of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and Telugu Desam Party engaged in physical clashes at several places while Congress MPs attacked Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy for allegedly sending ‘misleading reports' to the Centre about the ground reality.

    NEW DELHI: Railways is finalising a draft legislation for a project that envisages running trains with the speed of 300 kms per hour on some selected routes across the country.

    The Bill is likely to be introduced in the winter session of Parliament.

    "We are in the process of setting up the National High Speed Rail Authority (http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/search.cms?query=National%20High%20Speed%20Rail%20Authority) (NHSRA), an autonomous body, to implement and monitor the high speed train project in the country and for this a legislation is required to set up the Authority," said a senior Railway Ministry (http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/search.cms?query=Railway%20Ministry) official.

    According to the proposed NHSRA Bill, 2011, the nine- member Authority will have a chairman and eight members. There will be four full-time members including Member Project, Member Finance, Member Engineering and Member Planning.

    "Stakeholders of the high speed rail corridor project will also have four representatives as part-time members in the NHRSA," the official said.

    The NHSRA is being proposed to be set up on the lines of the National Highway Authority and it would be under the Railways Ministry.

    The selection of chairman and members of the NHSRA would be done by the Public Enterprise Selection Board (http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/search.cms?query=Public%20Enterprise%20Selection%20Board) (PESB) with the approval of Appointment Committee of Cabinet.

    The draft of the Bill is being sent to Law Ministry, Urban Development Ministry, Finance Ministry (http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/search.cms?query=Finance%20Ministry) and Planning Commission (http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/search.cms?query=Planning%20Commission) for their views. "The final draft of the NHSRA would be sent to the Cabinet for its approval before introducing it in Parliament," said the official.

    Railways have identified six routes to conduct feasibility study for running high speed trains. Currently railways is awarding contracts to global consultants for conducting feasibility studies of the proposed routes.

    State governments and financial institutions are stakeholders of the high speed rail corridor project.

    According to an estimate, it will cost about Rs 100 crore to construct one km dedicated high speed corridor. As per the preliminary report, ridership revenues would be able to cover the operating cost of the project.

    Railways plan to make the high speed rail corridor into a catalyst for India's economic growth, a stimulus for the development of satellite towns and reduction of migration to cities.

    "We have chosen three foreign consultants to carry out studies in three corridors out of the six identified routes for conducting pre-feasibility studies for developing high speed rail corridors," the official said.

    UK-based consultant Mott McDonald has been engaged to conduct the pre-feasibility study of the longest Delhi-Agra- Lucknow-Varanasi-Patna (991 km) route, while Spanish consultant Eneco has been hired to carry out studies in the shortest Howrah-Haldia (135 km) route.

    "French consultant Systra, which has done the studies for Pune-Mumbai-Ahmedabad (650 km) route, submitted the report to the Railway Ministry and the report is being examined now," he said.

    A consultant for study of Delhi-Chandigarh-Amritsar (450 km) route will be selected soon as the global bid is under finalisation.

    While tenders for Hyderabad-Vijayawada-Chennai have been invited and are under evaluation, bids for Chennai-Bangalore- Ernakulum will be invited shortly.

    During the Rail Budget 2010, then Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee announced construction of high speed passenger rail corridors. These projects will be executed through PPP mode.

    The much-awaited doubling of railway line between Hyderabad and Mahbubnagar has been hanging fire for more than two decades. The railway ministry’s apathy and lack of funds have led to the derailment of the doubling works.
    In fact, the doubling work on the section was specifically mentioned in the last three years’ railway budgets. “Leave alone any track work, even survey works on this busy route have not taken place,” sources said. It was in 1990 that the government first mentioned about doubling of the route from Falaknuma to Mahbubnagar, covering a distance of 90 km.
    Experts said the issue was relegated to mere election slogans for all the MPs contesting from Mahbubnagar. Nothing much was done in the last two decades, though the district was represented by minister of state for railways Mallikharjun in 1983 and senior politicians like D Vittal Rao, S Jaipal Reddy and K Chandrasekhar Rao.
    “All the politiciansmake tall promises during elections, but there has been no progress in the doubling works,” a bank employee of Kondurg mandal rued. He alleged that present MP KCR had also assured during 2009 election campaign that the doubling works would be fast-tracked. “But even his promise has so far turned out to be hollow,” he complained.
    This route has major traffic. Apart from superfasts such as Bangalore, Mysore, AP Sampark Kranthi, Chennai-Egmore and Rameshwaram trains, 40 express and passenger trains are also operated daily. Experts said not only would it reduce the travel time, but also the total distance to be covered. For instance, the distance for trains like Chennai and Charminar expresses would reduce by 80-90 km if they take Mahbubnagar-Dhone-Guntakal-Renigunta route, instead of the Vijayawada, Guntur sections.
    Even the local railway officials are agitated over the delay in taking up the works. A station master on condition of anonymity said, once doubling is done, distance to Mysore, Tirupati, Chennai and destinations in Kerala would reduce considerably. Former MP Vittal Rao said a survey was carried out some time ago, but the work did not go any further. “After KCR became the MP, his first assurance to the people was that he would work towards the doubling of the railway line. What happened to his promise?” a resident of Mahbubnagar asked.


    and still some people think KCR will do good if telangana is formed.....

  • SCR to instal baggage scanners soon
    source:The Hindu (http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/tp-andhrapradesh/article2631808.ece)

    After much delay, South Central Railway (SCR) authorities have initiated steps for installation of baggage scanners, under vehicle scanners and other equipment at Secunderabad and Hyderabad railway stations to beef up security at the stations.

    As part of the Integrated Security System project, Railway Board has already sanctioned over Rs. 6 crore to SCR for installation of baggage scanners, CCTV cameras and other equipment at important stations in the State.

    Authorities have already installed 46 CCTV cameras at Secunderabad station and another 50 are being planned exclusively for the station. Under the project, it was proposed to install three baggage scanners at Secunderabad and two each at Hyderabad and Tirupati railway stations. Installation works were to be completed by September but due to technical reasons, the project got delayed. Efforts were being put to complete the installation works by December 31, said Secunderabad Divisional Railway Manager Sanjeev Roy.

    While, two baggage scanners would be installed at the main entrance, the other one would be at the Bhoiguda side of Secunderabad station. Apart from baggage scanners, SCR authorities are planning to install under vehicle scanners as well.

    These vehicle scanners would be installed on the way leading to the main portico on the Secunderabad station premises.

    Similar plans

    Similar plans are being made for Hyderabad railway station as well. Besides these scanners, authorities are procuring one mobile baggage scanner to scan passengers' luggage randomly.

    An exclusive bomb detection squad with a team of 10 persons is also being planned. This team would be supplied with 28 security equipments like bomb blankets, metal detectors etc and special training was being provided for these persons, informed Mr. Roy.

    “It is a first of its kind security project in railways across the country and the SCR is the first to initiate installation works. In fact, other railways are yet to float tenders for the project,” explains Mr. Roy.

    Only fools will think that KCR will do good after telagana is formed.
    Politicians have totally mismanaged the issues of Telangana. If proper attention has been given to the issues of Telangana when the agitation started in 60s things wouldn't have come this far. Blame it on Politicians and their narrow-mindedness and their selfishness which unfortunately may eventually divide the AP state.

  • Railway coach factory fails to see light of the day

    http://www.thehindu.com/multimedia/dynamic/00852/29KMPSRHI-W142_GK73_852138e.jpg
    The proposal has been hanging fire for over two decades

    More than two decades have lapsed since the foundation stone for the Railway Coach Factory (Chintakani Concrete Sleeper Factory) was laid at Chintakani, but the much-touted project remains only on paper. The foundation stone was laid by the then Union Minister of State for Railways, Madhavrao Scindia, in the presence of the then Union Minister for Industries Jalagam Vengala Rao in 1989. The plaque carries the names of the dignitaries.

    The project was earlier proposed at Chintakani with the main objective of creating employment avenues. Successive governments have not taken any steps to launch the project much to the disappointment of the people of the mandal.

    Assembly Deputy Speaker and Madhira MLA Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, in a memorandum to Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, has urged the latter to pursue the matter with the Centre.

    Land acquired

    A survey was also conducted for acquisition of some lands near the railway station at the time of the foundation-laying ceremony, recalled Lachaiah, an elderly person of the village. “But nothing has materialised so far,” he said, disappointment writ large on his face.

    “Our persistent pleas to the officials concerned on the “Concrete Sleepers Factory” in the past evoked cryptic replies from the officials, said another villager. Some of them even hinted that the project was shifted to some other State due to lack of proper follow-up action, he lamented. “We earnestly hope that the State government would act on the memorandum submitted by Mr. Vikramarka and take up the issue with the Central government for speedy establishment of the factory,” said former sarpanch M. Bhaskar.

  • New trains announced in last budget yet to chug off

    People's representatives exert pressure on the Railway Board to get the due

    The Railway Timetable Committee is scheduled to meet next month but the trains announced, and some of the works sanctioned in the last budget, are yet to materialise. The new trains can be commissioned only when a provision is made for the same in the timetable.

    None of the new trains originating from Visakhapatnam, that were announced in the 2011-12 budget, Visakhapatnam-Secunderabad tri-weekly A/C Duranto Express, Visakhapatnam – Koraput Intercity Express, Visakhapatnam – Digha Weekly Express and Visakhapatnam – Howrah Weekly Express, have been introduced so far.

    This is not all, only two of the six other trains passing through Waltair Division, announced in the last budget, have been launched recently.

    The Duronto AC Express is scheduled to run thrice a week. The train requires special coaches and they are said to be under construction. The rake would be maintained by the South Central Railway. “We haven't received any information so far but in all probability it would be introduced by the end of the current financial year,” Divisional Railway Manager N. Kashinath told The Hindu on Thursday when asked about the status of the pending works.

    Escalators

    On the proposal for installation of escalators at Visakhapatnam Railway Station, he said that two escalators have been sanctioned but the purchase order was yet to be released.

    Coach indication boards have been installed on platform 1 at Duvvada Railway Station as most of the trains going towards Vijayawada are taken on this platform. Construction of Platform 4 has already been taken up but it couldn't be completed due to funds constraint.

    “Three of the 12 trains that were being diverted via Duvvada Station were being re-routed through Visakhapatnam during the last few months.

    Proposals have been sent to the Railway Board for bringing the nine other trains to Visakhapatnam and the issue was under the consideration of the board,” Mr. Kashinath said.

    “The works that were already sanctioned like laying of approach road, development of circulating area and construction of waiting halls for upper class and sleeper class on the Gnanapuram side, were pending due to paucity of funds,” he added.

    One can only hope our people's representatives exert pressure on the Railway Board to ensure that Visakhapatnam and Waltair Division get their due.

    These new tracks and doubling improves the transport infrastructure in AP and boosts the development. If the above infrastructure completes, AP will get more trains.


    New tracks required that will improve connectivity and reduce distance and open alternative routes

    1. Manoharabad-Gazwel-Siddipet-Siricilla-Vemulavada-Kottapalli (near Karimnagar) this line will connect Karimnagar- Jagityal line, will serve as alternative route to New Delhi from Hyderabad (via Karimnagar and Pedda palli), in future, if Jagityal is connected to Ramagundam, fast trains bound to New Delhi (Duranto, Rajadhani etc) can take this route.

    2. Bhadrachalam- Vishakhapatnam (277 km)- This will provide quick access to Vizag and reduce distance between Hyderabad and Vizag, besides connecting tribal areas and runs through forest.

    3. (Manuguru to Ramagundam) and (Miryalaguda/Vishnupuram- Jaggayya peta) (work in progress) and (Nadikudi-Sri Kalahasti) (Sanctioned in 2011) once finished these three lines will reduce distance between Tirupathy/Chennai and New Delhi considerably, besides providing an alternate route (last line) in cyclone prone areas.

    4. Vikarabad (Nagula palli)- Sangareddy and from Sangareddy- to Manoharabad provides direct access to trains from Bangalore to New Delhi route via ( Siddipet, Kottapally) by passing Secundrabad.

    5. Connecting Patancheruvu- Sangareddy (via Kandi (IIT- Hyderabad), Rudraram) and Nagula palli to Sangareddy (As mentioned in 4, via BDL town ship and Yeddumilaram Ordinance factory would be beneficial. Both Patancheruvu- Sangareddy and Nagula palli- Sangareddy will serve as Good routes for Phase III expansion on MMTS.

    6. Bidar- Medak- Akkanapet will also provide alternate access to trains from Northern Karnataka to New Delhi (Via Nizamabad-Jagityal- Ramagundam).

    7. Adilabad-Niraml- Armoor connects Adilabad to Hyderabad directly. Adilabad- Ghadchandur connects Nanded route to New Delhi Route.

    8. Manuguru- Kirandul and Bhadrachalam- Kovvuru improve connectivity and serve tribal areas and connect natural ore rich areas to Main lines.
    9. Nandyal- Jadcherla ( Via Atmakur, Nagar Kurnool ) reduces distance between Kacheguda and Tirupathy (via Nandyal, Yerraguntla, cuddapah).
    10. Cuddapah to Bangalore (via Madanapalli,) sanctioned and Cumbum to Yerraguntla reduces distance between Bangalore and Vizag or Kolkata (via Guntur and Vijayawada).

  • New tracks required that will improve connectivity and reduce distance and open alternative routes

    1. Manoharabad-Gazwel-Siddipet-Siricilla-Vemulavada-Kottapalli (near Karimnagar) this line will connect Karimnagar- Jagityal line, will serve as alternative route to New Delhi from Hyderabad (via Karimnagar and Pedda palli), in future, if Jagityal is connected to Ramagundam, fast trains bound to New Delhi (Duranto, Rajadhani etc) can take this route.

    2. Bhadrachalam- Vishakhapatnam (277 km)- This will provide quick access to Vizag and reduce distance between Hyderabad and Vizag, besides connecting tribal areas and runs through forest.

    3. (Manuguru to Ramagundam) and (Miryalaguda/Vishnupuram- Jaggayya peta) (work in progress) and (Nadikudi-Sri Kalahasti) (Sanctioned in 2011) once finished these three lines will reduce distance between Tirupathy/Chennai and New Delhi considerably, besides providing an alternate route (last line) in cyclone prone areas.

    4. Vikarabad (Nagula palli)- Sangareddy and from Sangareddy- to Manoharabad provides direct access to trains from Bangalore to New Delhi route via ( Siddipet, Kottapally) by passing Secundrabad.

    5. Connecting Patancheruvu- Sangareddy (via Kandi (IIT- Hyderabad), Rudraram) and Nagula palli to Sangareddy (As mentioned in 4, via BDL town ship and Yeddumilaram Ordinance factory would be beneficial. Both Patancheruvu- Sangareddy and Nagula palli- Sangareddy will serve as Good routes for Phase III expansion on MMTS.

    6. Bidar- Medak- Akkanapet will also provide alternate access to trains from Northern Karnataka to New Delhi (Via Nizamabad-Jagityal- Ramagundam).

    7. Adilabad-Niraml- Armoor connects Adilabad to Hyderabad directly. Adilabad- Ghadchandur connects Nanded route to New Delhi Route.

    8. Manuguru- Kirandul and Bhadrachalam- Kovvuru improve connectivity and serve tribal areas and connect natural ore rich areas to Main lines.
    9. Nandyal- Jadcherla ( Via Atmakur, Nagar Kurnool ) reduces distance between Kacheguda and Tirupathy (via Nandyal, Yerraguntla, cuddapah).
    10. Cuddapah to Bangalore (via Madanapalli,) sanctioned and Cumbum to Yerraguntla reduces distance between Bangalore and Vizag or Kolkata (via Guntur and Vijayawada).
    11. Connecting Gadwal- Macherla ( via Wanaparthy, Nagar Kurnool, Dindi, Devarakonda, Malle paali ) to Macherla- Nalgonda line provides connectivity between two important South Telengana districts.

  • Japanese firm to conduct study on Hyderabad-Chennai rail corridor

    Railways have selected a Japanese consortium to explore the possibility of running a bullet train on the Hyderabad-Chennai high speed rail corridor.

    Japan External Trade Organisation (Jetro) and Oriental Consultancy along with Parsons Brinkhoff India has bagged the contract to conduct the pre-feasibility study on the proposed 664 km long Hyderabad-Vijaywada-Chennai route for running the high speed train, a senior Railway Ministry official said.

    Japan’s high speed trains Shinkansen operate at a speed of up to 300 km per hour and are known for their punctuality, comfort, safety and efficiency.

    The consortium will submit the report in seven months.

    The study is expected to cost the railways about Rs. 3.5 crore.

    There were a total of 13 bidders including Korean, French, British and Spanish consultants in the race to bag the southern high speed rail project.

    With the selection of the Japanese consortium, railways have undertaken study of four routes for running bullet trains.

    Railways have roped in French firm Systra for Pune-Mumbai-Ahmedabad (650 km) route, while UK—based consultant Mott McDonald has been engaged to conduct the pre-feasibility study of the longest Delhi-Agra—Lucknow—Varanasi-Patna (991 km) route.

    Spanish consultant Eneco has been hired to carry out studies in the shortest Howrah-Haldia (135 km) route.

    Systra has submitted the report to the Railway Ministry, which is being examined now.

    Selection for consultants for Delhi-Chandigarh-Amritsar (450 km) and Chennai-Bangalore-Coimbatore-Thiruvananthapuram (869 km) high speed rail corridor will be decided shortly.

    In order to expedite the bullet train project, Railways is in the process of constituting the National High Speed Rail Authority on the lines of the National Highways Authority.

    The draft of the National High Speed Rail Authority Bill has been sent to the Law Ministry, Urban Development Ministry, Environment Ministry, Finance Ministry and Planning Commission for their views.

    “The final draft of the Bill would be sent to the Cabinet for its approval before being introduced in the Budget Session of Parliament,” the official said.

    According to an estimate, it will cost about Rs.100 crore to construct a one km dedicated high speed corridor. As per the preliminary report, ridership revenues would be able to cover the operating cost of the project.

    State governments and financial institutions are expected to be stakeholders of the high speed rail corridor project as these projects will be executed through PPP mode.

    Railways plan to make the high speed rail corridor a catalyst for India’s economic growth and a stimulus for the development of satellite towns.

  • APSRTC ‘Aakarsha' to attract patrons

    Local officials of the AP State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) are eager to transform the Krishna region unit of the Corporation into a major source of attraction to the public.

    ‘Aakarsha' is their answer to the smart moves of private bus operators eating into a major chunk of the RTC revenue.

    The new scheme, which literally means ‘attraction' in Telugu, envisages enticing customers by reducing travel time, especially on long-distance routes.

    A recent survey conducted to determine factors contributing to the passengers' tilt towards private bus services revealed that most people prefer private services to cut down on the travel time.

    “As part of ‘Aakarsha' our drivers are being trained on how to reduce travel time. Time sense is the catchword and we want our bus crew to strictly adhere to the prescribed time schedules,” K.V.R.K. Prasad, Regional Manager of the RTC told The Hindu on Saturday.

    The drivers are told not to extend their wait for the late Lateefs beyond 10 minutes. “If a passenger takes beyond 10 extra minutes to reach the departure destination, he/she can be accommodated in the next bus, depending on the situation,” said Mr. Prasad, pointing out that rail passengers do not have the luxury of being waited for.

    Besides inculcating time sense, the RTC is also contemplating elimination of a few ‘not-so-important' stages (halts) from the long- distance services. Henceforth, in the stopovers, the bus driver will have to announce the duration of the halt time. “People alight from the vehicle and get scattered in different directions without a clue on when the bus will revive its onward journey. This often results in waste of time that can be saved,” says Mr. Prasad.

    Driving speed of the person behind the wheel will come under scanner with the officials closely monitoring the mileage of the vehicle.

    “The driver of a Volvo bus will not have the choice to move at a slow pace and increase the travel time,” said Mr. Prasad.

    The RTC, meanwhile, is also planning to operate buses to the Gannavaram airport. “Since the number of flights has increased, we are toying with launch of bus operation in sync with the arrival time of the flights,” he said.

    Projects which need immediate attention are
    1. Doubling and Electrification of Secundrabad-Manoharabad, doubling and electrification of Falaknuma to Umdanagar and further from Umdanagar to Shamshabad (new line) (as part of MMTS phase 2). Upgrading of Moulali and Makajgiri stations and providing stops for long distance trains (thus by passing Secundrabad station) should be top priority for SCR.
    2. A new line from Kolar (Srinivaspur) to Madanapalli road (~ 60 km) provides direct alternative route from Bengaluru to Tirupati (via Kolar, Madanapalli, Pakala) avoiding circuitous route from Jolarpeta, Katpadi). This link connects Bengaluru, Tirupathy and Chennai with direct and shortest route and has the potential for high speed bullet trains as it connects three most important cities in south India and part of the track is already under trunk route (from Chennai to Renigunta). This also partly completes the proposed Bengaluru-Cuddapah line, the later in the present scenario might need several years to complete. Cuddapah to Madanapalli road can be completed in future at an appropriate time. Alternatively Kolar- Nangali- Chittoor may be taken up to provide straight line connection between Bengaluru and Chennai.
    And of course, finishing of railway projects which are progessing at a good rate like, Vishnupuram-Jaggayapet, Nizamabad-Jagityal, Yerraguntla-Nandyal, Gadwal-Raichur and Devarakadra-Krishna (Mahaboobnagar-munirabad section). Interestingly, all these are under construction projects are meant for connecting two important lines (eg. Gadwal-Raichur connects Hyderabad-Bangalore route with Mumbai-Bangalore route).

  • High-speed railway corridors to pass through AP

    The Railway ministry is planning to construct six high speed corridors for which survey work is underway. Among the proposed high speed corridors will be one from Kolkata to Kerala via Vijayawada, Nellore and Veluru and another from Hyderabad to Chennai.

    Addressing a two-day national workshop on Skills Upgradation and Prevention of Accidents organised by the South Central Railways Employees Sangh and National Federation of Indian Railwaymen, minister of state for railways, KH Muniyappa said the railways is also planning to construct railway over bridges, under bridges in place of crossings to avoid accidents and this work will be completed by 2014.

    The other proposed corridors are from Bengaluru to Chennai, Mumbai to Chennai, Delhi to Hyderabad and Delhi to Chennai. The survey for the same through a consultant, is underway.

    The minister also said there are pressures from various quarters to hike charges and that the matter was under discussion. “Around 2,000 to 3,000 deaths are registered every year in train accidents and we are looking to bring the numbers down to zero,” Muniyappa said. He added that they are planning to introduce an advanced signaling system, presently used in Konkan Railway, in places in the country to reduce accidents. He said the railways, has set a target to construct 20,000 new railway lines by 2020.

    The MMTS second phase works in Hyderabad will begin from February 2012 and the state government is ready to bear two-thirds of the entire project cost of Rs 600 crore. He appreciated the AP government for coming forward to bear 50 percent cost of new railway projects.

  • Hon’ble Minister for Railways visits Secunderabad

    Shri Dinesh Trivedi, Hon’ble Minister for Railways visited Secunderabad o*n a day’s tour today, ie. 26th December, 2011 - his first ever visit to South Central Railway.

    During his visit, he held a Performance Review Meeting of South Central Railway at the Zonal Headquarters - Rail Nilayam - with Shri G.N.Asthana, General Manager and other Principal Heads of Departments. Shri G.N.Asthana made a Power Point Presentation highlighting the performance of South Central Railway for the period April to November, 2011 in various spheres of activity .

    Shri Dinesh Trivedi made detailed enquiries o*n various performance parameters like freight loading, financial performance, Safety, passenger amenities, line capacity issues and infrastructural improvements etc., as also o*n the steps required to further improve safety and financial performance of Railways..He reviewed the loading in various streams of freight traffic and suggested a churning in revenue mix to maximise the earnings.Shri Trivedi appreciated the commendable performance of South Central Railway o*n various fronts.The Hon’ble Minister for Railways laid emphasis o*n two top priority issues – Safety and Earnings – where maximum thrust is to be put in by staff at all levels.

    The Railway Minister instructed to follow a ‘Zero Compromise’ Policy o*n Safety so as to ensure that no accidents take place by meticulously following the established systems and safe methods of working.He exhorted the officials to keep ‘customer’ as the focal point and take into account the needs of customers before taking up any work/scheme.He emphasized o*n the need for more research and innovation in Railway Systems, so as to have a thorough up-gradation and modernization of infrastructure to herald railways into a new generation of reforms. He interacted with the senior officers present and had a meaningful interaction o*n various suggestions o*n further improvement of Railways.

    After the Review Meeting, Shri Dinesh Trivedi inspected the Secunderabad Railway Station.He had a close look at the various passenger amenities provided o*n Platforms including the Passenger Information Systems, ATVMs, Signage Boards, Waiting Halls and Ticket Counters, etc.He later inspected Platform No.1 and had a look at the recently completed track apron works, cleanliness and maintenance of station premises. He also inspected the Food Plaza o*n the Platform No.1, where he enquired about the quality of the food and tasted for himself the food being served there.During the station inspection, Shri Dinesh Trivedi interacted with the Railway staff, the passengers and the Media Personnel. He expressed his happiness o*n various passenger amenities provided at Secunderabad Station and also o*n the proper upkeep, maintenance and cleanliness of the Station premises.He praised that Secunderabad Station is “Model Station o*ne can take lessons from”.

    Answering to the questions from Media Personnel o*n MMTS Phase II in the twin cities, he replied that the Railway Board is seized of the matter and a decision o*n further action will be taken soon.Two lifts and two escalators will be provided at Secunderabad Railway station shortly and the infrastructure will be upgraded at this station, he added .

    On the issue of possible hike in railway fares, the Hon’ble Minister mentioned the fact that there has been no hike in the Railway fares in the last eight years.Keeping in view the present financial position, Railway Ministry is thinking of various means to augment the revenue, without adversely affecting the ‘Aam Aadmi’, the common man.

    In appreciation of the upkeep and maintenance of Secunderabad Railway Station, the Hon’ble Minister for Railways announced a cash award of Rs.50,000 to the Station Staff, Secunderabad.

    As they are talking of new zone, it will not be a part of SCR but will function as independent zone, then possibly Vijayawada will be the headquarter for the new zone like what Secundrabad is for SCR.
    - S Chigurupati, in 3 years
  • Won't they still be part of SCR?
    Right now, execution of new projects does not seem to be based on revenue generating capability of each zone (otherwise, SCR should have more projects), My argument is based on following observations.
    1. SCR has 5749 km (all broad guage) of track second only to NRs 6934 km
    2. State wise comparison shows AP has 4348 km (SCR website)
    Giving a false impression that AP has high density of rail network. A comparison
    of railway density in 2004-05 shows,

    — Average rail density for India is 19.13.
    — The rail density is highest in Delhi (138.2) followed by West Bengal (43.4), Punjab (41.6), Haryana (36.1), Bihar (35.9), Uttar Pradesh (35.8), Tamil Nadu (32.1), Assam (31.9), Kerala (27), Gujarat (26.9) and Jharkhand (24.3).
    — Among the major states outside Northeast and Jammu and Kashmir the lowest rail density is in Himachal Pradesh (5.1), followed by Uttarakhand (6.4), Chhattisgarh (8.6), Orissa (14.6), Karnataka (15.5), Madhya Pradesh (15.9), Rajasthan (17), Maharashtra (17.9), Goa (18.6) and Andhra Pradesh (18.9).

    Moreover, most of the rail network in AP is not AP specific, (Guntakal-Renigunta is part of Mumbai-Chennai trunk route, Guntakal- Bengaluru, Kazipet- Balharshah, Chennai-Vizag are parts of important networks used mostly by other states as well.( Considering no Railway minister represented AP since Independence, if not for its strategic location, AP would have had much less network than it has now.)
    So dividing of SCR into two zones and making additional divisions and bringing in Vizag division from EcoR, will enable two zones, with reasonable length of track to manage and get additional projects in each zone. All the port routes will of course go to new zone though, but Kothagudem coal belt zone and Jaggayya pet-Vishnupuram and Nandyal-Yerraguntla and all important Peddapalli-Karimnagar-Nizamabad routes (Cement,coal and passenger belts) will still be with SCR. Again as you pointed out it has disadvantages also.

    I would like to add one more request for survey for new line Muddanur (on Gooty-Rengunta line)-Pulivendula-Mudigubba (on Dharmavaram-Pakala line) (~70 km).
    Also, SCR should upload a High Resolution system map for SCR with existing lines, new lines under construction, surveys, including electrification and doubling works, similar to SWR and EcoR have on their websites.

  • No Shirdi Express from tomorrow

    The Visakhapatnam – Shirdi Sai Nagar Weekly Express will no longer run from the coming Thursday and contrary to the assurances given by the Railway Board from time to time to our MPs, the popular train may not be revived for the next few months. The last run of the train was on December 29.

    The Visakhapatnam – Shirdi, which was introduced as a special train twice a week, was converted into a weekly last year to facilitate running of the Bhubaneswar – Shirdi Special once a week. Normally, special trains are regularised after a six-month trial period, depending on their patronage. It may be recalled that despite the overwhelming patronage, the train was withdrawn after a successful two-year run on June 29 last year. It was restored after a lot of efforts by our MPs but once again as a weekly special train.

    It's learnt that the South Central Railway authorities are citing operational problems for revival of the Visakhapatnam – Shirdi Special.

    “We have proposed the conversion of the Visakhapatnam – Shirdi Special into a bi-weekly regular Express and sent the recommendation to the East Coast Railway Headquarters in Bhubaneswar. The issue would be discussed at the All India Railway Time Table Committee meeting to be held in Secunderabad from Thursday,” DRM N. Kashinath said on Tuesday.

  • Proposals for new trains submitted

    A tri-weekly Express from Visakhapatnam to Chennai, introduction of one more Visakhapatnam – Mumbai LTT Superfast Express via Raipur, extension of Sambalpur – Varanasi Weekly Express to Visakhapatnam, introduction of a night train on the Naupada – Gunupur Section and continuation of the Visakhapatnam – Quilon Express are some of the proposals submitted by the Waltair Division to the authorities East Coast Railway Zone in Bhubaneswar.

    The zonal authorities are expected to present them at the All India Railway Time Table Committee meeting to be held in Secunderabad from January 5. The proposals would be discussed at the meeting and the ones that are accepted could find place in the forthcoming Railway budget. “Of the 12 trains bypassing Visakhapatnam and going through Duvvada, three have been already re-routed and we are exerting pressure on the Railway Board to get the other trains also to Visakhapatnam. A battery operated car will be introduced at Duvvada Railway Station in the near future for the benefit of physically challenged persons and senior citizens,” Divisional Railway Manager N. Kashinath told a media conference on Tuesday. The doubling work on the Jagdalpur – Kirandul stretch was sanctioned as it was being funded by the National Mineral Development Corporation (NMDC). Survey of the Koraput – Jagdalpur stretch was completed while the Kothavalasa – Koraput stretch was yet to be completed. Relaying of the approach road, development of circulating area and construction of waiting halls for Upper Class and Sleeper Class on the Gnanapuram side would be taken up once the construction of the BRTS Road was completed.

    Escalators

    Mr. Kashinath said that the Railway Board has placed orders for procurement of escalators. Two escalators, one on platform 1 and the other on platform 8 (Gnanapuram side), would be provided at a cost of Rs.42 lakhs. He said that the escalators were expected to be received by March-end.

  • MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Shrimati Gundu Sudharani.
    SHRI M.V. MYSURA REDDY: It is her maiden speech, Sir.
    MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: You are asking me to give her more time
    because it is her maiden speech. ...(Interruptions).. You are asking
    me in a very difficult situation because we have to conclude the debate
    by 4.30. There are still ten Members to speak. ...(Interruptions).. I
    leave it to her. ...(Interruptions)..
    SHRIMATI GUNDU SUDHARANI (ANDHRA PRADESH): Respected
    Deputy Chairman, Sir, at the outset, I thank you very much for giving
    me this opportunity to make my maiden speech before the
    distinguished hon. Members. Before I start my speech, I express my
    deep sense of gratitude to my leader, Shri Nara Chandrababu Naidu
    Garu for nominating me to this House of Elders. I take this opportunity
    to thank all my party colleagues, MLAs who have elected me, people
    of Andhra Pradesh, particularly, Warangal, who have supported me in
    my journey to this place to this destination. I pledge here that I will
    sincerely and faithfully discharge my duties to the satisfaction of one
    and all. I also take this opportunity to seek the guidance and help
    from the Chair, senior colleagues of my party and the hon. Members
    of the House.
    Sir, this budget is nothing but jugglery of figures. First, I come
    to the operating ratio of railways. The hon. Minister put the operating
    ratio for 2010-11 at 92.1 per cent. It shocked me because if you look
    closely at the budget documents, they reveal that there is a last
    minute patch-up by the Railway Board. Sir, in the first nine months,
    the operating ratio touched almost 115 per cent of the railways. Ten
    out of sixteen zones had an operating ratio of over 100 per cent
    between April and December, 2010. So, I would like the Minister to
    explain what magic she has to turn it around in the last quarter and
    show 92.1 per cent as operating ratio.
    The second point is about safety. The Minister herself has
    spoken sincerely about safety and security measures by railways. She
    said, "In my first tenure, I had approved the introduction of anticollision
    device. After ten years, I find that it has been implemented
    only in NF Railway.
    (Contd by 3E/SSS)
    SSS/3E/3.45
    SHRIMATI GUNDU SUDHARANI (CONTD.): Secondly, the hon.
    Minister in her Budget Speech says that the number of incidents at
    unmanned level crossings have come down by 36 per cent. Sir, the
    main accidents and collisions in the Railways take place at level
    crossings and if you look at the White Paper released by the Minister
    last year it shows that all kinds of accidents at level crossings in 2004-
    05 was 70 and in 2008-09, it remained the same at 69. When collision
    comes, it was 13 in 2004-05 and remained at 13 in 2008-09. The
    Minister said that there is 36 per cent reduction of accidents in
    unmanned level crossings, but if you look at the White Paper,
    accidents at unmanned level crossings in 2004-05 was 65, and it was
    62 in 2008-09. So, the figures given by the Minister and the figures of
    White Paper released by the hon. Minister are contradicting. I request
    her to clarify this to this House, and, Sir, there are more than 2000
    level crossings in A.P., and I request the hon. Minister to take
    immediate steps to construct rail over bridge and rail under bridge
    which would drastically reduce the accidents at level crossings. The
    other point is, if one looks at the expenditure so far made on ACD and
    on other safety measures, it runs into hundreds of crores. Where has
    the money gone? Does it mean that the money is not being utilized
    optimally? Why are you leaving the lives of the people at the mercy of
    God? So, I request the hon. Minister to sincerely pay attention on
    safety and security aspect, because it is the heart and soul of
    Railways. Sir, the hon. Minister announced pre-feasibility study for
    Delhi-Mumbai Golden Rail Corridor and also mentioned that similar
    studies would be initiated for other corridors like Mumbai-Kolkata,
    Chennai-Bangalore, etc. But I ask the hon. Minister what happened
    to the High Speed Rail Corridor of Hyderabad-Dornakal-Vijayawada-
    Chennai announced in the Vision 2020 Document? What is the
    progress of technical study of this corridor and by when it is going to
    be grounded? There is no mention about this in her speech as to
    when she will take this up and complete it as it is a very important and
    revenue-generating stretch. I only request her to be sincere towards
    this corridor as well. My next point is, I don’t know the reason why
    Railways is not able to achieve the set targets with regard to new
    lines. Sir, since Independence we could add only 10,677 kms. Which
    averages 180 kms. per annum. But, if you compare it with the British,
    they laid 577 kms. annually. This clearly shows that there is a lack of
    political will and commitment on the part of successive Railway
    Ministers in constructing new lines. Hon. Minister has set a target of
    1000 kms of new lines and if you calculate at this rate, Railways will
    construct 10,000 kms of new lines by 2020. But, if you look at
    Network Expansion of the Vision Document 2020 released by the hon.
    Minister, it envisages adding 25,000 kms by 2020. It means 2,500
    kms. per annum. Now, the Minister proposes 1000 kms and in ten
    years it comes to 10,000 kms. But, the actual achievement, as per
    Minister herself, is 700 kms. per annum. It means, we can achieve
    only 7000 kms. by 2020. So, whom are we fooling, Sir? I request the
    hon. Minister to give us the correct picture and urge not to create any
    hype or give a rosy picture, but only tell the truth to the people of this
    country. Sir, the Railway Budget has disappointed the entire A.P. and
    I have no hesitation to say, “िक सब राज कंगाल, इसम􀈂 िछपा हुआ है
    बंगाल” as my State has been ignored 7th year in a row. There is no
    doubt that there are some promises in the present Budget. But, what
    to do with these promises, when the Ministry failed to fulfill the
    promises made in earlier Budgets? So, mere promises will not do,
    unless they are implemented on the ground with sufficient allocations.
    Sir, the hon. Minister is very well aware that SCR has consistently in
    the first two positions as far as revenue earning is concerned.
    (Contd. by NBR/3F)
    -SSS/NBR-VNK/3F/3.50.
    SHRIMATI GUNDU SUDHARANI (CONTD.): But, it is deprived over
    the last four decades with regard to railway lines and other projects.
    For example, in 2006-07, the income was Rs. 5,770 crores and
    allocation was Rs. 923 crores. In 2007-08, the income was Rs. 6,830
    crores and the allocation was Rs. 1,610 crores. Last year, the revenue
    generation was Rs. 8,500 crores and the allocation was just Rs. 3,092
    crores. This year the allocation proposed is Rs. 3,666 crores even
    though the income would be nearly Rs. 9,500 crores. But, when it
    comes to Eastern Zone, the Minister is giving it more than what it
    earns for Railways.
    And, secondly, if you look at rail network in the South Central
    Railway in spite of earning higher revenues for Railways, it is only 18.5
    route kms. per 1000 sq. kms., whereas in Bengal it is nearly 50 kms.;
    38 kms. in Bihar; 35.5 kms. in UP; 32 kms. in Tamil Nadu. This clearly
    shows that the successive Railway Ministers are neglecting the
    revenue-earning Zones and giving importance to the States which are
    not even up to the mark.
    In this Budget the Minister has given only Rs. 3,666 crores to
    SCR. Out of this, Rs. 1700 crores go to Nadikudi-Srikalahasti line.
    So, the rest Rs. 1966 crores would be distributed to other projects.
    What works can the South Central Railway take up with this meagre
    amount? So, I ask the Government of India as to why this
    discrimination towards A.P.
    Sir, A.P. Congress has given the largest number of MPs to the
    UPA Government and it would be in the fitness of things to reciprocate
    in the same manner by the Government of India in the form of giving
    more allocations and projects to my State. So, I only appeal to the
    hon. Prime Minister with folded hands to intervene and do justice to
    the South Central Railway.
    The next point is, the hon. Minister is very well aware the Andhra
    Pradesh is called the Rice Bowl of the country and its farmers continue
    to feed the people of this country. But, the Railways is not extending
    to them a helping hand in transporting the foodgrains. The FCI has a
    capacity to store 34 lakh tones of foodgrains in Andhra Pradesh but
    the present stocks are 37 lakh tones. As a result, the FCI is not
    procuring foodgrains from farmers. The officials are ready to transport
    these foodgrains to the neighbouring Tamil Nadu, Karanataka and
    Kerala, but the railways are not giving them the rakes. Sir, in February
    Railways assured of providing 160 rakes but has given only 90. As a
    result, the foodgrains are not able to transport to other States. So, I
    request the hon. Minister to direct the officials to release the required
    number of rakes to Andhra Pradesh so that it can transport
    foodgrains, make room for new foodgrains which helps the farmers to
    get remunerative price. If the Railways does not help the farmers of
    Andhra Pradesh who are already suffering due to cyclone and floods
    in the State and also due to piling up of 20 lakh metric tones of
    foodgrains which have either de-coloured or broken or sprouted,
    there is every possibility that they may commit even suicides. So, I
    request the hon. Minister to help them out.
    The second point is, the officials have set a target of procuring
    50 lakh tones before March, 15 and 85 lakh tones by September 30
    this year. For this, the States requires 750 rakes. So, I request the
    hon. Minister to direct the officials to provide, on an average, 150-160
    rakes to Andhra Pradesh so that foodgrains can be transported and
    farmers can be saved from serious problems.
    Sir, my submissions would be incomplete without mentioning
    the injustice done to A.P. with regard to new lines, doubling,
    electrification, new trains, etc. The Chief Minister of A.P. has had a
    detailed discussion with the hon. Minister on 21st January, 2011, and
    submitted a detailed Memorandum for consideration. But, to the utter
    disappointment of not only Chief Minister but also to the people of
    A.P., the Minister has not considered the Memorandum at all. Of the
    9 new lines proposed by the Chief Minister, only Gudur-
    Durgarajapatnam has been sanctioned. In the last Budget the hon.
    Minister announced 11 new lines to connect the most backward areas
    and they are: Bhadrachallam-Kovvur, Nizamabad-Ramagundam,
    Hyderabad-Gajwel-Siddipet-Siricilla-Jagityal, Patancheruvu-Adilabad
    etc. But, till today even the approval from the Planning Commission
    has not got. The hon. Minister said that she would take up Nadikudi-
    Srikalahasti, Manuguru-Ramagundam, Akkampet-Medak-Medchal,
    etc. But, till now the projects have not brought to tender stage even.
    Instead, the Minister said that such projects would be taken up in the
    12th Plan.
    (CONTD. BY USY "3G")
    -NBR-USY/3g/3.55
    SHRIMATI GUNDU SUDHARANI (CONTD.): How can the
    Railways implement projects in this way? First you announce
    project, drag on for some years without allocation and then
    say that it would be taken up in the next Plan period. Mere
    announcements will not do any justice unless they are backed
    by allocations. So, I request the hon. Minister to take a
    holistic view and do justice by implementing the projects
    within a reasonable time-frame. Secondly, there are projects
    which have been cleared by the Railway Board and the
    Planning Commission but are pending for clearance from the
    Cabinet. They are: Nadikudi-Srikalahasti new line, doubling
    and electrification of Vijayawada-Gudivada and
    Machillipatnam/Bhimavaram-Narsapur-Nidadavolu to name
    a few. So, I request the hon. Minister to take these to the
    Cabinet and get approval. Sir, Secunderabad-Karimnagar
    via Siddipet has a lot of traffic and potential for earning
    revenue. The rate of return as per the rough calculation in the
    above stretch would be about 21 per cent, which is more
    than the 14 per cent norm prescribed by railways. So, I
    request to take this up immediately. Projects like Adilabad-
    Armoor new line which is a 136 kms. stretch is pending
    before the Railway Board for long. Kindly quicken the
    process and complete the same. Doubling of Bibinagar and
    Nallapadu is also important in view of heavy traffic and there
    is a lot of demand for this from the people of this region.
    There is also a need for a new line to Bhupalapalli coal mines.
    This has also not found place in the Budget proposals. Sir,
    Telangana is the backward region of Andhra Pradesh. Coal
    mines, Singareni Collieries and APGENCO are located at
    Bhupalapalli. There is a proposal for a line between Manugur
    and Ramagundam. I only urge that it should be routed via
    Bhupalapalli in view of the coal mines, Singareni Collieries
    and APGENCO. Apart from these, I request the hon. Minister
    to consider triple line between Kazipet-Ballarshah, Kazipet-
    Vijayawada and Maula Ali-Bhongiri as these are very
    important. (Interruptions)
    MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Please help the Chair. I don’t
    want to interrupt, but the debate has to end at 4.30 p.m.
    (Interruptions)
    SHRIMATI GUNDU SUDHARANI: Just two more minutes, Sir.
    Sir, I now come to the allocation of funds to some of the
    projects in Andhra Pradesh resulting in progress of those
    projects at a snail’s pace. For example, Kakinada-Pitapuram
    requires Rs. 125 crores, but the Minister has given Rs. 1 lakh.
    Munirabad-Mahaboobnagar requires Rs. 360 crores,
    allocated Rs. 30 crores. Peddapalli-Karimnagar-Nizamabad
    project was started 18 years ago, it is yet to be completed. It
    required Rs. 150 crores, but given only Rs. 60 crores. So,
    same is the case with other projects relating to doubling,
    electrification and gauge conversion. Due to time constraint,
    I am not mentioning them all here. So, I humbly request the
    hon. Minister to seriously ponder over these and do justice to
    Andhra Pradesh and the backward region of Telangana.
    Sir, I thank the hon. Minister for announcing a longpending
    demand of Telangana for Wagon factory at Kazipet.
    But, at the same time, there is a genuine demand to declare
    Kazipet as a separate Division as it is the main junction which
    connects North and South India. People of Telangana have
    been demanding for declaring this as a separate Division for
    many years. But, for reasons best known to the Minister, it
    has not been declared. I am thankful to the hon. Minister for
    upgrading Warangal as Adarsh Station. But, I wish to place a
    small request before the hon. Minister in this regard. The
    traffic flow at this station increased fourfold and the
    passengers are facing problems for entry and exit. So, I
    request that one more entry and exit for Warangal station be
    opened and a building also be provided at the new entry/exit.
    Apart from this, I also request for a Foot-over-Bridge at
    station to facilitate the movement of passengers. The Ministry
    provides some facilities to stations which have been declared
    as Adarsh Stations but healthcare facilities are not provided
    at these Stations. So, I request for providing medical care
    facilities at Adarsh Stations also. Sir, I have one small
    request to make. There is a need for Rail-over-Bridge
    connecting Karimabad at under railway gate to Warangal in
    Warangal district. There is also a need for rail-under-bridge
    at Shiva Nagar in Warangal. I request the hon. Minister to
    give green signal to these two small works immediately as
    they are very important.
    So, Sir, these are some of the demands which I thought
    that I should bring to the notice of the hon. Minister for
    redressing the same. I request her to ponder over these and
    do justice to Andhra Pradesh. I thank you, Sir, once again,
    for having given me this opportunity to make my maiden
    speech. Thank you. (Ends) (Followed by 3h – PK)

  • See the following tender by APGENCO for transportation of Coal from Uppal Railway siding to KTTP Bhuapalapalli. ( Tender 275, dated 17 September 2011)

    APGENCO-KTPP-Transportation of approximately 5.40 Lakh MT of coal per annum from Uppal Railway Siding to KTPP, Bhoopalpally by road using tippers with not less than 17 tonnes capacity including unloading of coal received from wagons at Uppal siding, transportation of coal from siding to nearby stacking yard and loading of stacked coal at stack yard into tippers and transportation to KTPP coal yard for a period of two years against the e-procurement Tender No.e-07/CEG-II/SE(Coal)/(E5)/07/2010-11 to M/s.Anil Transport, Bhoopalpally- Award of contract - orders- issued.


    Right now, just Unit I is operational at KTPP , with Unit II coming up soon, the expenditure to transport large amount of coal by road is colossal waste.

    So Manuguru- Ramagundam coal belt railway line ( Via Bhupalapalli, Eturu Nagaram) should be approved and completed on fast track. This line will connect Icchampalli project, Medaram ( Sammka-Sarakka tribal carnival, nearly 80 lakh people attend this once in every 2 years, SECOND BIGGEST CONGREGATION AFTER KUMBHAMELA, and APSRTC runs nearly 3000 buses to this fair when it is held).


    Also Kothagudem-Sathupalli railway line announced in 2010 is hanging for lack of funds allocation (initially Singareni agreed to bear the cost if it gets concessions on coal transport, but now wants APGENCO to bear the cost). Due to lack of co-ordination between Government, Singareni and APGENCO and Railways the much needed railway lines which could drastically reduce costs and environmental pollution are not materializing.

  • ‘Political will needed to achieve railway zone'

    Formation of a separate railway zone is a ‘political decision' and there is no point in either approaching officials or trying to convince them on the issue, says Praja Spandana president C.S. Rao.

    Reacting to a report which appeared in these columns ‘Waltair Division continues to get a raw deal' on January 29, he recalled that on her first visit to the city after her election as an MP from Visakhapatnam Lok Sabha constituency in May 2009, Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development D. Purandeswari had said that achieving a ‘separate railway zone' for Waltair was on top of her agenda'. Later, she pleaded her inability to convince the former Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee.

    In a statement, Mr. Rao said that the CPI and some other non-Congress political parties formed into a Railway Zone Sadhana Committee and Ms. Purandeswari during her visit to the city last month addressed the committee members of which he (Mr. Rao) was a special invitee.

    Not the right approach

    “Ms. Purandeswari was at pains to convince the members that she was making a lot of efforts to achieve the independent zone. The Minister said she took the members of the committee to the Railway Board Chairman and submitted a memorandum. Being an official, he spoke of his difficulty and turned down any proposals for new zones.”

    Mr. Rao said that he had told her that being a people's representative, Ms. Purandeswari should not have gone to the Chairman, who is a government official. He said: “Such decisions are political decisions as all of us know how a mini zone with Hazipur in Bihar was formed entirely and unilaterally by the former Railway Minister Ram Vilas Paswan. The Orissa Chief Minister and former Minister of State for Railways K.C. Lenka, being political heavyweights, could get the zone, named as East Coast Railway, with Bhubaneswar as its headquarters.”

    Raw deal

    He said that it was most unfortunate that Waltair Division, which was like a milch cow, with more revenue than the other two divisions -- Khurda and Sambalpur -- put together, was being given a raw deal since April 1, 2003. He suggested to Ms. Purandeswari to mobilise political support from the Chief Minister to achieve the demand for a separate railway zone with Visakhapatnam as its headquarters. He also suggested that the proposed zone could include Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam, East and West Godavari districts and Ms. Purandeswari had agreed to take up the issue with the Chief Minister.

  • Source: http://www.deccanchronicle.com/channels/cities/hyderabad/fight-projects-kiran-kumar-reddy-588

    The Chief Minister, Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, has promised that as per the agreement between the state and the Indian Railways, the government will release its share of funds for all pending railway projects in the state.

    He appealed to all MPs from the state to work for getting more and more railway projects and fight unitedly to get justice to state.

    The CM was speaking at a meeting convened on railway projects with MPs at Jubilee Hall on Thursday.

    He said that the Union minister for railways, Mr Dinesh Trivedi, will be coming to Hyderabad to discuss about pending and new railway projects and wanted a comprehensive blueprint about pending, ongoing and new railway projects to present the state’s case.

    “We can then clearly list out pending and new projects before the minister and take it up further at Delhi too,” he added. The Chief Minister said that all problems relating to railway projects and trains should be sorted out for the overall benefit of the state. The general manager, South Central Railway, Mr Asthana, made a detailed presentation on the status of the various railway projects already taken up.

    The Union minister of state for human resources, Ms Purandareswari, transport minister Botsa Satyanarayana, R&B minister D. Prasada Rao, major irrigation minister P. Sudarshan Reddy, general manager of South Central Railway, Mr Asthana attended the meeting.

    Meanwhile, the Telugu Desam MPs alleged that the state got a raw deal with regard to funding of railway projects in every budget resulting in slow pace of work. They boycotted the state MPs meeting conveyed by the Chief Minister.

    “AP always got a raw deal in every railway budget. There are 13 ongoing projects requiring Rs 7,000 crore. Another Rs 15,000 crore for new projects have been proposed,” Mr Nama Nageshwara Rao said. He added, “The Centre has released a meagre Rs 100 crore to Rs 150 crore annually to the railway projects in the state.”

    Hyderabad, Feb 20 (PTI)Former Union Minister and BJP leader Bandaru Dattatreya today urged the railway ministry to allot Rs 3,500 crore in the forthcoming budget for completion of various projects in Andhra Pradesh. In a letter to Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi, Dattatreya, who himself was minister of state for railway, said that many proposals submitted by state Chief Minister have been pending for lack of funds while some were pending for sanction from the Railway Board. He has sought allotment of funds in the railway budget of 2012-13 and include new projects in the budget like new lines between Tellapur and Patancheru, Secunderabad-Kachiguda-Nampally, Nampally-Shamshabad Airport and electrification of Secunderabad-Medchal. While demanding merger of Visakhapatnam Division into South Central Railways (SCR), Dattatreya has said the railway ministry should not merge Khazipet-Warangal section into Vijayawada division as this would create problems to employees pertaining to Telangana region. He also urged early completion of Multi-Model Transport System (MMTS) phase-II project covering suburban areas of Greater Hyderabad. Dattatreya also requested Trivedi to fill up 3000 vacant posts, mostly D grade, in South Central Railway.

    Every Railway Budget comes with a lot of expectations from people of different regions and this year, it will be the same. And the gap between sanction of projects, allocation of funds and actual release is yawning.
    A whopping sum of Rs. 8,500 crore is needed to complete 13 much-needed lines and two projects that have already been sanctioned under the jurisdiction of South Central Railway (SCR) in Andhra Pradesh.
    These are the 309-km, Nadikudi-Srikalahasti stretch sanctioned at an estimated cost of Rs. 1,313 crore and the 42-km, Gudur-Durgarajapatnam line estimated at Rs. 284 crore.
    Of the 11 remaining lines sanctioned, the older pertains to the 179-km Peddapalli-Karimnagar-Nizamabad project, estimated at Rs. 820 crore, way back in 1993-1994. Only Rs. 458 crore has been released in the past 18 years for this project.
    State's plea

    It may be recalled that at a meeting here on February 15, attended by Union Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi, Minister of State K.H. Muniyappa and Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and Members of Parliament strongly voiced their demand that 40 per cent of all railway projects in the State should go to serve the 10 districts across the Telangana region. They regretted that five lines sanctioned recently were earmarked for the Coastal and Rayalaseema regions.
    Funds for new lines

    Mr. Kiran Kumar Reddy said the State government had sanctioned Rs. 550 crore for new lines being taken up on 50: 50 cost sharing basis. Such projects include doubling and trebling of two lines at an estimated cost of Rs. 139 crore, he said in his presentation.
    It's not just new lines, but even those for which surveys have been conducted, that are in limbo now. Of 120 lines that were surveyed for technical feasibility, 32 have been found to be most needed, including six that were proposed to be taken up with 50:50 sharing between the Centre and State.
    SCRMU rues neglect

    Ch. Sankar Rao, general secretary of the South Central Railway Mazdoor Union and Assistant GS of All India Railwaymen's Federation, rues the neglect of much-needed projects by successive governments.
    “Gone are the standards followed in the past when the consideration for sanction of projects used to be the ‘Rate of Return', apart from the people's need,” he said.

    HYDERABAD: Elected corporators representing the peripheral municipal districts have demanded a separate budget for themselves that they may tackle problems presented by the water supply and sewerage network.

    Colonies on the outskirts of the city have been facing an acute water crisis with supply now coming at an interval of eight to 10 days and the corporators said that it was a situation that needs immediate attention.

    Mayor Majid Hussain said that a meeting would be held with all floor leaders and ex-officio members to discuss the problems raised by these corporators. At a Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) meeting held on Saturday, corporators cutting across party lines demanded that GHMC take charge of providing drinking water to the localities in question since the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB) does not supply to many of these municipal circles.

    Corporators V Jagadishwar Goud (Hafeezpet), Kotha Rama Rao (Kapra) and S Dhanpal Reddy (Cherlpally) said it was unfair on the residents of these areas that a proper drinking water and sewerage network had not been extended to them.

    "Although the Manjeera pipeline, that supplies water to the city, passes through Aditya Nagar, Krishna Nagar and Subhash Chandra Bose Nagar in new Hafeezpet, these colonies do not get drinking water," Goud said. He said that in colonies like Youth Colony, Sai Nagar, Guttala Begumpet and Kondapur, weaker sections of the population had to make do with the water that is supplied them only once a week.

    While Telugu Desam Party floor leader Singireddy Srinivas Reddy suggested that GHMC should adopt a resolution effecting a merger of HMWS&SB with the municipal corporation, MIM floor leader Mohd Nazeeruddin said that the corporation should allot five power borewells to each corporator as they try to combat the water problem this summer.

    The Mayor responded that the policy decision on any such merger needed to be discussed with higher authorities since the water board is a constitutional body. He said that the corporation would coordinate with HMWS&SB regarding the water supply to adjoining areas.

    MT Krishna Babu, the GHMC commissioner, said that a summer action plan has been prepared,adding that corporators may commission sewerage network works in their respective areas with their Rs 1 crore corporator's budget.

    MIM corporator Mirza Mustafa Baig said that garbage collection was not being properly executed and blamed the situation on a paucity of garbage clearance vehicles. He alleged that neither had GHMC purchased new vehicles nor hired workers for garbage disposal in the last two years after it entered into an agreement with Ramky group.

    Krishna Babu admitted that garbage clearance has been facing hiccups over the past two weeks with workers worried about job security in the wake of the Ramky agreement on the integrated solid waste management project. The commissioner gave an assurance that neither would workers be retrenched nor forced to take a pay cut in the light of the Ramky project.

    He said that additional vehicles would be hired for garbage disposal. He said that no new vehicles needed to be purchased since the corporation has provisions for the maintenance of vehicles. However, he said that new tricycles and bins would be procured.

    Azampura corporator Amjad Ullah Khan said several illegal constructions were coming up in his division with the connivance of town-planning staff.

    The Mayor directed the commissioner to list the illegal buildings that they may be demolished. The commissioner, however, said that it would be impossible to prevent unauthorised constructions in the 625 sq.km zone under GHMC's purview with only 74 officers.

  • NEW DELHI: High speed trains connecting the national capital to Jodhpur and Mumbai could be among the highlights of the Rail Budget 2012-13, which will be announced by railway minister Dinesh Trivedi next week.

    The 591-km-long Delhi-Jaipur-Ajmer-Jodhpur route is slated to be taken up for pre-feasibility study for introducing bullet trains, which run at a speed of 350 km per hour, and an announcement to this effect is likely to be made on March 14.

    Trivedi, who appears to be keen on introducing high speed trains in the country, could also announce a proposal for induction of trains sets, which run at 200 km per hour, on the Delhi-Mumbai route.

    A train set consists of a high horse power electronic locomotive with about 10 modern coaches and is estimated to cost Rs 200 crore.

    Upgrading of signalling and telecommunication system, essential for prevention of accidents in the high speed corridor, is also expected to be announced by Trivedi in his maiden Rail Budget.

    why has AP government ot requested any Passenger / Fast Express/ Shatabdi / JanaShatabdi / Durnoto from Anantpur to Yesvantapur?
    Is it because of less passenger traffic.

    Based on above news AP government should procure some Trains which can cover 200-250 Kmph.

    Train passengers of Krishna district are eagerly awaiting the allocation of funds for doubling and electrification of the Vijayawada-Machilipat-nam and Narsapur line and upgradation of Vijay-awada railway station.




    Train passengers of Krishna district are eagerly awaiting the allocation of funds for doubling and electrification of the Vijayawada-Machilipat-nam and Narsapur line and upgradation of Vijay-awada railway station.

    Railway Minister Mr Dinesh Trivedi will present the budget for 2012-13 in Parliament on Wednesday.

    The 221-km Vijayawada-Machilipatnam-Narsapur doubling and electrification work cost is estimated to cost Rs.1,000 crore. The state will bear 50 per cent of the project cost. With increasing train services between Vijayawada-Vizag-Kolkata, the Vijaya-wada-Narsapur line will be very useful to the railways.

    Passengers travelling between Vijayawada and Machilipatnam can avail cheap train services at Rs.14, while the bus costs ` 51.

    Running of express trains will be viable if doubling and electrification works are completed. Besides, the project will be very useful for transportation of goods from Machilipatnam to Hyderabad and other parts of India if the Machilipatnam port is completed. The railways cleared the project in the previous budget but did not allocate funds. Upgra-dation of Vijayawada railway station is also pending for a long time. As per its income the railway station must have escalators on the platforms. These are available on only two platforms.

    Works on installation of lifts are going on at a snail’s pace and women passengers need more waiting rooms in the railway station. The station has no first aid centre and inadequate drinking water taps for 170 express and passengers trains that halt every day. Passengers need cloak rooms on all platforms and demand that development works on 8, 9 and 10 platforms be completed. Proposals for long distance trains from Vijayawada to Mumbai and Ahmedabad are pending for a long time.

    Machilipatnam-Repalle, Bitragunta-Donakonda, Donakonda-Vadarevu, Ongole-Donakonda, Kris-hnapatnam-Obulevarip-alle, Guduru-Durgarajapa-tnam, Kakinada-Pithapuram, Kotipalli-Nayapur projects are pending for a long time.

  • ‘Kadapa-Bangalore railway line in 7 years'

    South Central Railway General Manager G.N. Asthana inspects Kadapa railway station and other facilities

    The new railway line between Kadapa and Bangalore will take about six to seven years for completion, South Central Railway General Manager G.N. Asthana said here on Monday.

    Mr. Asthana, Guntakal Divisional Railway Manager Tej Pratap Singh and IG of Railway Police Force Mohan and other railway officials inspected Kadapa railway station and other facilities. The Proddatur-Cumbum line would be completed within three years, he said in Kadapa.

    Earlier, Mr. Asthana said in Rajampet that the Renigunta-Guntakal railway line doubling would be completed shortly. Completion of the 50-km line between Kondapuram and Rayalacheruvu railway station would facilitate running of two trains on different tracks and completion of electrification works, Mr. Asthana told newsmen at Rajampet. He assured to display a signboard in the railway station on prominent temples. The GM inaugurated rail udyan, a park in the foreyard of Rajampet railway station and planted saplings. Rajampet railway station manager Srinivasulu and Railway Mazdoor Union leaders welcomed Mr. Asthana, and senior officials who came by a special train from Renigunta. He inspected two platforms, foot-over-bridge, passenger waiting rooms, drinking water facility, ticket booking counter and records.

    Leaders' plea

    All-party leaders urged Mr. Asthana in Rajampet to revive a railway under-bridge and establish a locoshed unit at Nandalur. TDP leaders -- Sudhakar, T. Lakshminarayana, women's wing president P. Kusuma Kumari, BJP leader N. Ramesh Naidu, Yuva Morcha women leader Vijayalakshmi, Lok Satta leader C. Chandrasekhar, CPI leader C. Ravi Kumar sought extension of Chennai-Tirupati Garudadri Express, Secunderabad-Kurnool Tungabhadra passenger, Mysore-Bangalore-Tirupati Mysore Express trains up to Kadapa.

    They also sought extension of Tirupati-Chennai Egmore express train up to Lingampalli in Hyderabad. On the plea to halt Tirupati-Hazrat Nizamuddin Kranthi express in Rajampet, the GM assured a one-minute halt at Rajampet. Mr. Asthana assured to send proposals to the Central and State governments seeking sanction of funds for reviving the under-bridge at Rajampet, if proposals were received from the local MP and MLA. He assured to apprise the Railway Board on demand for a railway wagon unit at Nandalur. Lands were identified at Kazipet and some places but no decision was taken yet, he said. Additional bogies would be added to several trains to meet passenger rush.

    Proddatur-Cumbum line will be completed within three years: Asthana

  • Hi Raju,

    The state doesnt just have rayalseema.It has also telangana reion also.
    Anantapur to bangalore doesnt need a high speed rail.Infact tiruapti to bangalore would be a good proposition.


    Agreed, I am not familiar with other regions except Hyderabad. where I had spent 3 yrs as my job demanded it. I am born and bought up in Bangalore.

    So the routes, which I mentioned are only basis on close proximity to Bangalore.

    Anyone from Telegana, and other regions can list out the required routes as they would be more familiar about their surroundings.

    Coming to Tirupati - Bangalore

    Please wait for 3 yrs , Chittoor - Bangalore i.e.,
    whitefield to Kolar via Hosakote new railway line survey is done.
    Their will be a annoucement of Chittoor - Mulbagal via Nangali in 2012-13 budget.
    Hoping GOK will propose K R puram to Kolar line, avoiding whitefield.

    Hopefully both state governments will execute the project at the earliest.

    Then commuting from Bangalore to Tirupati (250 KMs) will be around 2.5 - 3 Hours.
    Moreover Metro connectivity from KR Puram/whitefield to Hosakote will be done by 2020.

    The state got a good deal out of the Railway Budget announced on Wednesday. In all, 15 new express trains will originate from Andhra Pradesh and 10 more will pass through the state. This accounts for one-third of the total Mail and Express trains that will be introduced across the country in the next financial year.

    Expansion of the MMTS Phase 2 project covering 103 km has also been sanctioned on a cost-sharing basis. Rs99 crore has been sanctioned for the current year. This is a chunk of one-third of the estimated cost (total Rs632 crore) for strengthening the suburban system of MMTS Phase II, which includes doubling and electrification.

    The Budget also set aside Rs125 crore towards passenger amenities. Two new line projects between Bhadrachalam-Kovuur and Akkanpet-Medak have also been sanctioned along with the crucial Kazipet-Vijaywada third line doubling project for decongesting the important route. Besides this, doubling work on Raghavapuram-Peddampet, Isivi-Kupgal, Kosigi-Mentralayam will be completed during this fiscal.

    Three originating trains, Madurai-Tirupati Express, Bodhan-Nizamabad Passenger, Arakonam-Nandalur Passenger will be extended to Rameshwaram, Kamareddi and Kadapa respectively.
    The frequency of four originating trains will also be increased. These are the Secunderabad-Tirupati Express (from two to four days), Hyderabad-Kolhapur Express (from two to seven days), Madurai-Tirupati Express (from two to three days) and Sir Ganganagar-Huzur Saheb Nanded Express (from one to three days). Also, the frequency of two pass-through trains, Villupuram-Kharagpur Express and Hazrat Nizamuddin-Kanyakumari Express will be increased from one day to two days.

    Jalna, Macherla, Piduguralla, Pokarni Narsimha, Sattenapalli and Vinukonda stations will be developed as Adarsh stations.

    No sign of trains promised in last year’s railway budget

    Although 15 new trains have been announced in the Railway Budget, there has been no mention of the fate of those allocated last year including the super fast tri-weekly Duronto Express.

    The train that was to be run between Secunderabad and Vishakapatnam has lost its way in this Budget. Also of the total 84 model stations sanctioned across the country, only five are for the state. Apart from this the projects that were proposed for doubling railway lines like Bibinagar-Nallapadu, Dornakal-Manuguru and Renigunta-Arokonam are being denied funds and being merely referred to the Planning Commission.

    However, addressing a press conference here, the South Central Railway general manager, Mr G.N. Asthana, said that the Railway Budget is exceptionally good with the zone getting 25 of the 75 new trains sanctioned for the entire country.

    Also, of the 11 new lines sanctioned across the 16 railway zones, two of them fall in the SCR zone. The 151-km Bhadrach-alam-Kovvur line costing approximately Rs900 crore is expected to reduce the distance between Secunderabad and Visakhapatnam by about 100 km, apart from providing alternate route between the two major cities and de-congesting the Vijayawada route, while the second one will be the Rs115-crore Akkanpet-Medak line.

    Talking about developing world class facilities at the Secunderabad and Tirupati stations, the official said that with the announcement of a separate authority to be formed for the purpose, the work is expected to move forward at greater speed now.

    Also the capital account allocation of Rs2,350 crore, up by Rs290 crores over last year would be invested for acquisition, restoration and replacement of railway assets including laying new lines, doubling, traffic facilities in terms of road-over and road-under bridges, level crossings, bridges and the like, he said.

  • I think it was a relatively good budget for AP and SCR.
    At last, Bhdrachalm- Kovvur and Medak-Akkanapet lines were sanctioned. I would have liked to see the sanctioning of Ramagundam-Manuguru new line catering to coal belt area.

    Also , elctrification of Nallapadu-Guntakal is very well welcome, and forwarding of proposals for Nallapadu-Bibinagar and Dhone-Falaknuma.

    Above all , release of Funds for MMTS phase 2 is a welcome sign.

  • Shri G N Asthana, General Manager, South Central Railway held a Press Meet today, i.e.,
    14th March 2012 at Rail Nilayam, Secunderabad in connection with the Railway Budget 2012-13 presented by Shri Dinesh Triwedi, Hon’ble Minister for Railways in the Parliamenttoday.
    1)The GM stated that this Railway Budget is exceptionally good as this will improve Railway’s financial position and generates surplus for developmental works.This Budget is also noteworthy for the fact that as many as 15 of the 75 Mail/Express which are to be introduced will originate from S.C.Railway.Another 10 would pass through this Railway.Thus, 1/3rd of the total Mail/Express trains to be introduced during the next Financial Year would be passing through S.C.Railway. Allotment of such high percentage of trains for SCR has never been done in the past.
    2)During the current year, SCR is completing 131 Kms of new lines, out of total of 725 Km o*n Indian Railways. This is a record breaking, unprecedented performance.Very ambitious expansion of MMTS Phase-II project covering 103 Kms has been sanctioned in this Budget o*n cost-sharing basis. This is an important step in the development of proper transport infrastructure in twin cities.
    3)GM thanked the State Government of Andhra Pradesh for providing every help in execution of Railway Projects in the state including commitment to support MMTS services.It is o*nly because of this, that so much of thrust could be given for A.P. Projects.
    He highlighted the salient features of the Railway Budget 2012 pertaining to South Central Railway which are as follows:
    A. PROJECTS


    MMTS Phase–II in Twin Cities Sanctioned

  • I have posted this somewhere else, (http://indiarailinfo.com/station/blog/834) but here is cross posting again to highlight the need.

    See the following tender by APGENCO for transportation of Coal from Uppal Railway siding to KTTP Bhuapalapalli. ( Tender 275, dated 17 September 2011)
    APGENCO-KTPP-Transportation of approximately 5.40 Lakh MT of coal per annum from Uppal Railway Siding to KTPP, Bhoopalpally by road using tippers with not less than 17 tonnes capacity including unloading of coal received from wagons at Uppal siding, transportation of coal from siding to nearby stacking yard and loading of stacked coal at stack yard into tippers and transportation to KTPP coal yard for a period of two years against the e-procurement Tender No.e-07/CEG-II/SE(Coal)/(E5)/07/2010-11 to M/s.Anil Transport, Bhoopalpally- Award of contract - orders- issued.
    Right now, just Unit I is operational at KTPP , with Unit II coming up soon, the expenditure to transport large amount of coal by road is colossal waste.
    So Manuguru- Ramagundam coal belt railway line ( Via Bhupalapalli, Eturu Nagaram) should be approved and completed on fast track. This line will connect Icchampalli project, Medaram ( Sammka-Sarakka tribal carnival, nearly 80 lakh people attend this once in every 2 years, SECOND BIGGEST CONGREGATION AFTER KUMBHAMELA, and APSRTC runs nearly 3000 buses to this fair when it is held).

    Also Kothagudem-Sathupalli railway line announced in 2010 is hanging for lack of funds allocation (initially Singareni agreed to bear the cost if it gets concessions on coal transport, but now wants APGENCO to bear the cost).

    Due to lack of co-ordination between Government, Singareni and APGENCO and Railways the much needed railway lines which could drastically reduce costs and environmental pollution are not materializing.

    The current Railway line survey for Nadikudi-Srikalahasthi new line goes through Nadikudi-Piduguralla- Narasaropet-Vinukonda-Darsi- Podili-Kanigiri-Vinjamuru-Rapuru-Venkatagiri. If the route is modified as Nadikudi-Macherla - Vinukonda- Donakonda-podili- Kanigiri-vinjamuru- Rapuru- Venkatagiri there are more benefits. Nadikudi-Macherla and Vinukonda- Donakonda streches are part of the ALREADY existing networks. And if Donakonda-Venkatagiri (~ 273 km), Macherla-Vinkonda (~ 58 km) are connected, it will complete Nadikudi-Srikalahasthi new proposed railway line and also covers major portion of Donakonda-Bitragunta railway line proposal (it only needs connection from Bitragunta to Vinjamuru ~ 50 km). Bitragunta-Vinjamuru can be extended via Budvel and Mydukuru upto Proddutur connecting Chennai-Howrah line with Nadikudi-Renigunta future line and Guntakal-Renigunta line. Since Nalgonda-Macherla is under construction, This route will reduce distance between Hyderabad- Tirupathy/Chennai and Chennai-New Delhi with less investment than the route that is under survey.

  • Hope this 2012-2013 Rail Budget will address the Long pending,

    Yerraguntla - Nandyal Railway Line ( Funds need to released for faster execution)
    Cumbum - Proddatur Railway Line ( Only proposal has done, no information whether it is alive or dead)

    Importance of Kadapa - Bangalore Line

    This line will help ppl going towards Kolakata to avoid chennai - Nellore / Chittoor-Nellore route from Bangalore.

    Kadapa - Bangalore Line (Funds need to released for faster execution) this line has to further meet

    1) Mydukur on (Cumbum - Proddatur Railway Line). where Cumbum - Proddatur Railway Line will get connected to Giddalur ( Nandyal - Guntur line) - Kolkata

    2) From Kadapa go via Yerraguntla - Nandyal Railway Line - Giddalur - Guntur - Kolkata

    Obulavaripalle - Krishnapatanam port ( Funds need to released for faster execution)

    NadiKudi - SriKalahasti (Funds need to released for faster execution)


    Survey needs to be done to connect for future Growth of Seemandhra districts

    Nellore to Mydukur via ( Duvvuru Kanigiri Reservior - Nellore Palem - DC Palli - Marripadu - Badvel - Mydukur )

    Kurnool Town - AtmaKur - Dornala - Markapur - Podili - Ongole

    Atmakur - Nandyal

    SriKalahasti - Naidupeta -Durgarajupatanam

    Venkatagiri -Rapur - PodalaKur - Nellore Palem - Rajavolu-Vinjamur- Duttaluru-Pamuru- Kanigiri - Podili - Darsi-Kasayapuram - Chilakaluripet - Guntur.

    These lines will connect Kurnool,Kadapa,Chittoor,Nellore,Ongole,Guntur Districts

    Hope any forum members have close Links with AP Politicians . Ppl from Kadapa might help in taking these lines into reality as they have active Political circle.

    Venkatagiri -Rapur - PodalaKur - Nellore Palem - Rajavolu-Vinjamur- Duttaluru-Pamuru- Kanigiri - Podili - Darsi-Kasayapuram - Chilakaluripet - Guntur.

    This alignment is more/less with the proposed Nadikudi - Srikalahasti New Railway line stated by Kesi.

  • One wonders why Bibinagar-nallapadu line is not get electrified nor is it getting doubled inspite of heavy railway traffic going through this line and which helped reducing Hyderabad-Madras distance atleast by 80-90 KM. Don't know what the MPs are doing from this region to get the sanction for electrification and doubling ?. The above list only says Bibinagar (Pagidipalli)-Nallapadu electrification survey sanctioned in 2012-2013. The doubling of Bibinagar-Nallapadu was sent to planning commission for appraisal.

    SCR website sucks really. It does not have full details of lines under construction, doubling, elctrification, new line surveys unlike SWR or EcoR websites (some part of AP network is in these zones). Someone should request this from SCR, or through RTI act.

  • New tri-weekly Duronto express between Secunderabad-Vizag introduced (http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/news/states/article3626934.ece)

    HYDERABAD, JULY 11:
    The long wait Andhra Pradesh for Duronto train service has ended today. The Union Minister of State for Railways, Mr K.H. Muniyappa, flagged off the tri-weekly Express to Visakhapatnam at Secunderabad on Wednesday.

    The non-stop train would cover 700 km in 9.30 hours, reducing travel time by three-four hours. This is the 13th train service between the two stations. Half of them are daily trains. It is estimated that about 25,000 people commute between the two cities, putting pressure on the existing train and bus services.

    The launch of Secunderabad-Visakhapatnam Duronto Express, announced in last year’s Railway Budget, had been put off more than once, while some other Durontos announced for other States were already up and running.

    The Minister, along with the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, also flagged off Hyderabad-Ajmer, Secunderabad-Darbhanga, and Hyderabad - Bellampalli Intercity express trains.

    Waltair Division

    Ms D. Purandheswari, Union Minister of State for Human Resources, who represents the Visakhapatnam Lok Sabha Constituency, has asked her Cabinet colleague to consider merging the division with the South Central Railway (SCR).

    Mr Kiran Kumar Reddy too backed the merger proposal and felt that the jobs were going out of the State as the division was tagged to a zone outside the State.

    Reminding him that this had been a long-pending demand, she also asked Mr Muniyappa and Mr Kiran Kumar Reddy to come to the rescue of those who had built houses in railway properties. Their living conditions were very bad and civic administration was not able to do anything because the Railways argued that the land belonged to them.

    Mr Muniyappa, however, clarified that Railway zones did not generally take into consideration State geographies. “Nevertheless, I will look into your proposal,” he said.

    Privatisation

    The Chief Minister warned the Railway officials to improve efficiency of services. “Or, we will have to face demands from the people for privatisation. You have seen what had happened with regard to the telecom sector. It could repeat, if we fail to act now,” he said.

    Cost-sharing

    The Railways has asked the States to share costs in order to complete all the projects pending for the last 20 years. “If States come forward to fund the projects, we can complete all of the projects in the next five-six, ” Mr Muniyappa, said. Mr Reddy said the State asked the Railways to complete all the projects as early possible. “We would give matching funds,” he said.

  • A.P always got a raw deal from the Railways over the years.We should be more assertive when it comes to getting things done.:ohno:

    When other states were adding new projects be it in the form of new trains,lines,even though they already were well served by the Railways;A.P was nowhere to be seen.I think it's about time we get our dues back.

    Some suggestions that i would like to make is,adding at least 3 or if possible 4 or more SHATABDI's.

    SECUNDERABAD - BANGALORE via Anantpur
    SECUNDERABAD - CHENNAI via Vijayawada
    SECUNDERABAD - TIRUPATI via Cuddapah

    This would ensure everyone in the state can avail the services of one of the fastest train service in India.

    i'm sure on the routes,a lot of traveling takes place and i have no doubt whatsoever that the Railways would make good money by adding those trains.A strong political will is needed to get the job done and when there is money to be made,i don't think why the proposals would not be accepted.


    The 4th and 5th SHATABDI that i would add,would be between -

    VISHAKAPATNAM - CHENNAI
    SECUNDERABAD - VISHAKAPATNAM

    I have not mentioned about the stops,but i'm sure some of the more experienced boarders in here,can help me with that. :)

    I would like to keep the stops to bare minimum so that it cuts down the travel time.

    I'm just getting started with the SHATABDI's as they are one of the best ways to do some Inter - City traveling.

    Guys,this is my first ever post....i wish more people can join in the forum and participate in the threads...so that we can have a platform to voice out our opinions.:)

    Thank you all.

    ‘Agitation for railway zone will be intensified’ (http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/tp-andhrapradesh/article3630254.ece)


    The Visakhapatnam Railway Zone Sadhana Samiti will intensify the agitation for achieving the long-pending demand for setting up of a Railway Zone with Visakhapatnam as headquarters, said Samithi convenor J.V. Satyanarayana Murthy.

    “We will meet Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy in the near future to seek an appointment with the Prime Minister so that a State-level delegation of MPs, including those from Telangana, could meet the Prime Minister and reinforce the demand for setting up of the zone,” Mr. Satyanarayana told The Hindu when his attention was brought to the reported statement of Union Minister of State for Railways K.H. Muniyappa ruling out the possibility of merger of Waltair Division in South Central Railway.

    He welcomed the constitution of a committee by the Railway Board recently to go into the demands for formation of railway zones from various parts of the country. Recalling an earlier meeting with the Chief Minister on the issue, Mr. Satyanarayana said not only the Chief Minister, Pradesh Congress Committee chief Botcha Satyanarayana, Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao and a few Telangana MPs, who were there at that time, were convinced on the issue and had said the demand was ‘justified’. He said the samiti would apprise the newly-constituted committee on the need to set up a separate railway zone with Visakhapatnam as headquarters.

  • Any Updates on Kovvur - Bdrchlm Rd. ??

    And thanks,Gudavalli.

    It would have been prudent on the part of Railways by not cancelling the Rajahmundry Shatabdi.To begin with,they should have started the service between Vizag - Secunderabad.Connecting the capital with the second most populous city in Andhra.Would have made perfect sense.

    Welcome to SSC!! Yes, we need to voice our opinion more. Even though various political parties have been agitating for more rail infrastructure in the state, we haven't received our due share. Reasons are be many but the main reason is that most of the railway ministers have been very parochial. Thats the reason why we get to see such a varied rail density across the country. Have a look at this map(open the link in another tab):
    http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/42/indianrailwaysmap.jpg/

    You can clearly see that the rail density(particularly of the broad gauge lines) in the Northern states(from Punjab to West Bengal), Tamil Naduand Gujarat(though its narrow gauge).

    Whatever railway lines are there in the state are mainly to connect TN to West Bengal.. While other lines had been built previously. The only reason SCR is highly profitable is the freight from transportation of raw materials.

    Are you looking for an update on a specific project?

    Its highly unlikely that Railways will give you monthly project updates like you get in the private sector.

    Most of the news that you get during rail budget is just a repeat of the proposals ever given to the railways. Very rarely those projects are awaded. You can go through the tenders of the individual railway zones to konw if the project has been awarded yet.

    I am interested in knowing the progress of each and every project that is executed under SCR. Yes , awarded tenders seems to be the only way, to know if there is some work going on. Based on awarded tenders the only projects that are seemingly making decent progress are Jagityal-Nizamabad, Nandyal-Yerraguntla, all other works are progressing at snails pace. In this regard , I would request, members who are physically present in AP, to update with images and updates for us to discuss.

    Also is there a way to know , the info from SCR with RTI act? I have written some mails asking information and with suggestions for prioritizing projects but , never received any reply. I do not think, Whatever we discuss in this forum is ever followed by the people concerned. Hope there is good communication and discussion on the railway projects. The only time politicians talk is just before the budget is presented and they are silent afterwards.

    Also as previously pointed out, there is lack of proper maps, elecltrified sections, doublings, new projects under executions , surveys taken up etc from SCR website.

    Man,

    Prodattur - Cumbum is not even sanctioned, it is said it will be taken up in ppp mode, but no news. Nadikudi-Srikalhasti (Venkatagiri) is sanctioned just last year, it will take at least another couple of years before the project even starts ( mind you I am saying start not finishing). For example there are several sanctioned projects (See Pink book for details) which have been sanctioned long back, but have not started, notably Nalgonda-Macherla. Even when funds were allocated in the pink book, the money is not spent on the actual project but is kept as suspense account. Right now the priority of SCR is to finish Peddapalii-Karimnagar- Jagityal-Nizamabad. It is finished upto Jagityal in 2007. Jagityal-Nizamabad portion is currently being done. In Google maps we can see the track near to Morthad so it needs further 45 km of track to reach Nizamabad ( So at least 3 years more). Nandyal-Yerraguntla line is finished upto Nossam as per maps, do not know the status beyond Nossam and upto Nandyal (may take another 3 years). Vishnupuram- Jaggaihpet (Jaggaihpet- Mellacheruvu line recently opened), Vishnupuram -Janpahad is nearling completion (no update in maps though), this might also take another 3 years to finish.

    Devarakadra-Krishna, Kadapa- Benagluru lines work is at the begining phases , it will take at least 5-10 years before they see the light. Rest of the projects might take at least 20 years before they get finished. Unless Railways is completely Privatized, (or at least corporatized like BSNL) we can not expect much.

    The other day CM was making this comment and comparing the situation, when telecommunications was completely in government hands we had to wait few years to get a land line, now we can get it instantly. Same should be done to Railways to get the results, but I doubt Politicians and Railway Unions will never make it happen.

    We can know the status of the project (whether it has been tendered or if still is in the planning stage) by filing an online rti. But that is going to cost to file it.

  • Union Minister of State for Railways K.H. Muniyappa gave a statement as to development works at Rajahmundry railway station would be taken up shortly dating back to Feb 2012 especially a long standing demand of more platforms at the station.

    Rajahmundry is one of the top revenue generators for SCR under Vijayawada division and can be considered to be an important station between BZA - VSP and a lot of trains pass through this station each day and the traffic would further increase as we move ahead yet this station is serviced by just three platforms.:ohno:

    Mr.Muniyappa promised to add a fourth platform but the people of this city would be more happy if more than one platform is added,which to be honest the station deserves.:)

    Anyone,familiar with the developmental works at the Railways can throw some light as to how things go around??? I mean,does adding 4th platform automatically results in the creation of a 5th platform or it could be just that,the addition would be of just one off???

    I would be happy if the station gets three more platforms.But,i gotta be dreaming.:nuts:

  • If one looks at the Railway map of Andhra,one can easily see a lot of areas and people are still being Deprived of railway services which is really disappointing.Compare this to the railway map of say,U.P and much of East India,comprising Bihar,Jharkhand and West Bengal where you have lines - left,right and centre.

    I don't wanna make it sound like regional war but since Railway ministers used to come from there,it's no surprise.I hope things change around.SCR is one of the most profitable zones in Indian Railway and everyone part of it should be a bit headstrong and stubborn and should use their Political acumen to do something good for the people of this state,for a change.

    How can you still deprive and deny a good section/percentage of the population from essential services like Railways????

    If everyone can get their act together,may be in the next 20 - 40 years,we could get the surveys done and get them sanctioned and most importantly,we could get the funding as well.

    There are a few to many towns in Nellore,Cuddapah,Prakasam,Kurnool,Mahbubnagar,Nalgonda that are yet to receive the railway services.May be a new line connecting Hyderabad - Chennai would do the trick and would make the railway map of Andhra look more complete covering all these regions.

    Similarly,a new line adjacent to the existing Vijaywada - Vishakapatnam line covering areas under Krishna,West and East Godavari and certain areas in Vishakapatnam district would be excellent.

    I'm sure if the Bhadrachalam - Vizag line comes to life then a lot of areas would then be covered by the Railways but unless and until there is proper representation by the elected representatives things will not change.

    I remember in the Railway Budget 1997-98 it was announced that a survey would be conducted for Cuddapah to Nellore via Badvel and Atmakur and Butchireddipalem but God only knows,what exactly happened to that survey.It's been 12 years.:ohno:

  • Hyderabad, Aug. 6: :) :) :)




    Singareni Collieries Ltd on Monday paid Rs 6.38 crore to South Central Railway for conducting the final location survey for the Bhadrachalam Road- Sattupalli new railway line.


    The line is expected to facilitate movement of coal from Singareni Collieries.


    The coal miner is having three open cast projects in Sattupalli area with the expected production from these being about six million tonnes a year. The distance between the mines and the nearest coal handling plant at Rudrampur is about 55 km.


    “It is not possible to transport the six million tonnes of coal by road. Hence, the railway line is essential for moving this commodity. The project was sanctioned last year at a cost of Rs 337 crore,” a company release said.


    While Singareni will be contributing Rs 318 crore, the cost of land, Rs 19 crore, will be borne by the Railways.

  • SCR to intensify patrolling (http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Vijayawada/article3788442.ece)

    Steps afoot to check transportation of inflammable material, says DRM

    The South Central Railway, with rise in the number of fire accidents in the Vijayawada division, has decided to intensify patrolling on trains and in stations to prevent carrying/transportation of inflammable material.

    Similarly, the government has enhanced the ex gratia amount from Rs. 500 to Rs. 5,000 for simple injuries, from Rs. 2,500 to Rs. 25,000 for grievously injured passengers, and Rs.50,000 to the bereaved families in case of deaths in accidents.

    The increased ex gratia amount was being given from August 1, said Vijayawada Divisional Railway Manager Pradeep Kumar at a press conference here on Friday.

    Keeping in view the safety of passengers, special drives were launched in all stations. The Railway Protection Force (RPF) was asked to conduct checks in trains and surprise checks on platforms.

    The SLRs and parcel vans were being checked to prevent transportation of dangerous goods and security had been beefed up at the entry points in major stations.

    Besides, intensive track patrolling and review meetings on safety were being conducted every Monday, said Mr. Pradeep Kumar.

    The SCR paid ex gratia amount to all the victims of the Tamil Nadu Express fire accident which occurred in Nellore on July 30.

    Ex gratia amount was also paid to 13 passengers who suffered injuries in Tiruvananthapuram-Guwahati Express train accident that occurred at Eluru recently, said the DRM.

    CCTVs proposed

    Additional DRM S. Subba Rao, who was also present at the press conference, said that Closed Circuit Televisions (CCTVs) were proposed at Tadepalligudem, Chirala, and Eluru railway stations. Such CCTVs were functional in Vijayawada, Bhimavaram, Ongole, and Nellore stations, said Mr. Rao.

    Mr. Pradeep Kumar said that Vijayawada division registered gross earnings of Rs. 841 crore (from April to June) as against Rs.702 crore for the same period last year.

    No more long queues or facing the cumbersome process of using smart cards. For the convenience of commuters, the South Central Railway (SCR) has roped in some retired railway employees to work as Automatic Ticket Vending Machines (ATVMs) facilitators at a few stations in the city.
    These ATVM facilitators will operate the machines and issue MMTS, platform and general second class tickets. Under a pilot project, 21 retired employees have been deployed at Secunderabad, Hyderabad, Begumpet, Lingampally, Sitaphalmandi, Kacheguda and Malakpet railway stations.
    They also issue general second class tickets of ordinary or express trains originating or passing via Secunderabad and Hyderabad to different destinations under SCR limits. Commuters can purchase their tickets from ATVM facilitators without paying any extra service charge. In fact, SCR would be paying five per cent commission to them on the total value of tickets sold.
    Everyday about 8,860 tickets are issued through 76 ATVMs provided at 16 MMTS stations in twin cities. On an average, 60 new ATVM Smart Cards, which are key to access the machines, are sold and about 460 Smart Cards are recharged per day.
    Currently, close to 11,000 passengers are using ATVMs to purchase their tickets though their capacity is much more. It would be an advantage for commuters if they buy tickets from ATVMs directly or through ATVM facilitators. They don’t have to stand in long queues at the counters and can purchase tickets without any fuss, explains a SCR spokesperson.
    ATVMs were introduced in February 2010 in twin cities. But they evoked poor response from commuters for varied reasons, including lack of awareness to operate the machines along with recurrent technical snags.
    SCR had conducted a few awareness programmes early this year at Secunderabad and Hyderabad railway stations to popularise use of ATVM and smart cards. Yet, authorities feel there is still some potential to increase the sale of tickets through these machines. Hence retired employees were roped in to make the process easier for commuters.

  • Indian Railways to get more than INR 400 crore from RLDA (http://pib.nic.in/newsite/erelease.aspx?relid=87551)

    RLDA moves fast forward as it gets exemption from cabinet approval prior to leasing of railway land

    MFCs at 60 railway stations to be offered to private sector during current financial year

    MFCs for providing amenities to Rail Users to be developed in towns/cities of tourist and religious interest including at Dehradun, Ujjain, Ludhiana, Kurla Terminus, Vadodara, Udhampur, Ramnagar, Abu Road, Agartala, Belurghat, Gulbarga, Gaya, Vijayawada, Anand, Nellore

    Commercial sites at 8 sites to be offered on lease during current year including at Katra, Amritsar, Chennai, Vizag, Vijayawada and Bangalore ~
    Modernization of 5 railway stations Chandigarh, Habibganj, Anand Vihar, Shivajinagar and Bijwasan also being done through Indian Railway Station Development Corporation(IRSDC) ~



    Rail Land Development Authority, a statutory authority established by Ministry of Railways for generating non-tariff revenue from railway land, today announced that it is soon going to restart offering sites for development of Multi Functional Complexes and railway land for commercial development. RLDA has now targeted for earning more than Rs. 400 crore during current financial year.

    RLDA has prepared an action plan for fast tracking the development of projects and realization of expected revenues. RLDA has lined up 60 more new MFC sites and 8 other standalone sites for which bidding process is being initiated in phases within a fortnight. Many real estate consultants like Knight Frank, IL&FS, PWC, E&Y and JLLM are advising RLDA in Planning and Marketing the MFC/Commercial sites. MFC buildings, which are likely to come at railway stations in important tourist and religious destinations across India, will provide facilities for rail users at one centralized complex within the station premises. Facilities such as shopping, food stalls/ restaurants, book stalls, ATMs, medicines and variety stores, budget hotels, parking etc are to be provided. Several leading brands, retail, hotel chains and developers have expressed their interest in MFCs being developed by RLDA and prominent among them are Pantaloon, Cafe Coffee Day, The Loot, Woodland, Apodis Hospitality, Krishnan Palace Residency, WH Smith (Travel News Services). MFCs at 26 railway stations developed jointly with IRCON ISL and RITES have already been completed and are waiting for being leased out, prominent places being Haridwar, Udaipur, Raipur, Madurai, Allahabad, Jabalpur, Burdwan, Manmad, Guntur.

    There was tremendous response when last bidding was carried oput by RLDA for 6 MFCs in year 2010-11 when a total of 15 bidders submitted 28 financial bids with RLDA getting offers much higher than their assessments. Multi Functional Complex project offers a unique opportunity for retailers, hotel chain operators, developers and other such stakeholders for expanding and enlarging their footprint across hundreds of important towns and cities in the country. The selected railway stations will provide assured footfalls and wide exposure in the heart of town/ city. Carefully selected railway land generally in the range of 1,000 Sq.m. to 3,000 Sq.m. at the station with passenger interface is identified for development of MFC. Bids are invited in a combination of one time Lease Premium and Annual Lease Rent and bidder offering highest present value of all payments at a discount rate of 15% is selected. A bidder can either bid individually for separate MFCs or can bid for a cluster of MFCs together so that they have chance of winning a group of sites in one go. The developer winning the bid would get railway land on 45 years lease and shall have to develop phase-I of the MFC of a minimum built up area of 200 Sq.m. within a short period of 9 months. Multi Functional Complex is a win-win model for Indian Railways, rail users and developers. Indian Railways get passenger facilities developed at no cost to Government and further gets additional present and future revenues, rail users get better facilities in the shortest period of time and developers get assured market and opportunity for developing such project at large number of railway stations across India. The MFCs so developed will be part of the railway operational buildings and will be transferred back to the railways once the lease period ends.

    Several important sites for commercial development of surplus railway land including Katra, Amritsar, Chennai, Vizag, Vijayawada and Bangalore are also soon going to be offered for bidding for leasing up-to 45 years. These sites are attractively located in the respective cities and are suitable for shopping malls, entertainment, offices, hotels and other such real estate developments. Several of these sites are expected to be awarded during this financial year.

    RLDA has also been entrusted by Ministry of Railways for development of 5 Railway Stations at Chandigarh, Anand Vihar (Delhi), Bijwasan (Delhi), Habibganj (Bhopal) and Shivajinagar (Pune) into modern railway stations with excellent facilities for rail users. These stations are being developed through Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation Ltd., a joint venture company created by IRCON and RLDA in which the former is the majority partner. The company has already started operation and Business and Legal advisers have been appointed. These stations will be developed by leveraging the real estate and retail potential at the railway stations.

  • Is ECoR geared to meet the rush? (http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Visakhapatnam/is-ecor-geared-to-meet-the-rush/article3996629.ece)

    Almost all trains going from Visakhapatnam towards Hyderabad, Mumbai, Kollam, New Delhi, and Shirdi are fully booked for the Dasara vacation

    Most trains going to various destinations from Visakhapatnam during Dasara, Sankranti, and summer vacations have one thing in common — they all run to full capacity. This has been happening year after year. But the authorities don’t seem to be geared to meet the festival rush.

    Ironically, authorities of the Waltair Division of East Coast Railway (ECoR) are said to be “helpless” when it comes to augmentation of coaches even when there is a possibility. This is because the “rolling stock” of ECoR is maintained at Puri, unlike in the South Central Railway where it is decentralised and maintained at more than half-a-dozen stations where trains originate.

    There is a possibility of augmenting coaches to weekly specials to Shirdi and Kollam and the LTT Express, operated via Secunderabad and Raipur, as they run with 18 coaches and up to six more could be added based on the demand to clear the “waiting list.”

    No accommodation

    Almost all trains going from Visakhapatnam towards Hyderabad, Mumbai, Kollam, New Delhi, and Shirdi are fully booked for the Dasara vacation. The sleeper class, AC 3-tier and AC 2-tier coaches on the Godavari Express from Visakhapatnam to Hyderabad and back have been fully booked on all days from October 15 to 20.

    Similar is the case with the Visakhapatnam — Secunderabad Falaknuma Express on the above days in the three classes and the Visakhapatnam-Secunderabad Garib Rath (except on October 15) and Secunderabad — Visakhapatnam Garib Rath on all the five days. The Visakhapatnam — LTT via Secunderabad and the Visakhapatnam — LTT via Raipur are also full on most days of their operation during the Dasara season.

    The Visakhapatnam — New Delhi Link Express is full from October 15 to 20 in all the three classes and the Sai Nagar Shirdi and Kollam weekly special trains are also running to full capacity.

    When this is the plight of those seeking reserved accommodation, the fate of those who travel by ‘general’ coaches can well be imagined.

    “We have spare coaches to add to trains based on the need. However, the existing spare coaches have been used up to run the weekly specials — Sai Nagar Shirdi Express and Chennai Express,” a senior official said.

  • SCR keen on curbing malpractices (http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Hyderabad/scr-keen-on-curbing-malpractices/article3999968.ece)

    Touts, fake ticket agents likely to capitalise on festival rush

    Even as railways is gearing up to meet the passenger rush by operating special trains, curbing unauthorised ticket agents’ and touts’ malpractices, the festive season continues to remain a challenge.

    Many unauthorised ticket agents indulge in malpractices such as reserving tickets under fictitious names, bulk bookings, selling fake tickets etc., especially during festive season.

    Arrests

    From April to September this year, the South Central Railway (SCR) has arrested over 95 persons for different malpractices. This season, SCR is operating over 132 special trains to different destinations. Of these, a majority of them originate from Hyderabad and Secunderabad railway stations. It is tough for authorities to check malpractices both on-board train and off-board. For instance, a general ticket is valid for 24 hours. After travelling from Hyderabad to Kazipet early in the day, a few passengers tend to resell the same ticket to other passengers at a lesser price after arriving back in Hyderabad late in the evening, says a railway official.

    During festive season, most trains are packed and it is tough for TTEs to check each ticket. This apart, many unauthorised ticket agents block tickets in bulk under fictitious names, he adds.

    However, this time, the SCR is taking up several measures to curb such malpractices. Officials from Commercial, Vigilance and Security departments will conduct special checks at different places and trains. Raids will be conducted at authorised and unauthorised travel agents’ offices in coordination with local police to check and seize reserved tickets under fictitious names and subsequent sale of transferred tickets, says SCR spokesperson.

    Further, if there are unusual large ticket transactions by a particular reservation clerk, he or she would be kept under close surveillance to detect any connivance with agents. Passenger queues at ticket counters would also be monitored through CCTV cameras to keep touts at bay, he explains.

  • Railways successfully tests anti-collision technology (http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/railways-successfully-tests-anticollision-technology/article4002191.ece)

    http://www.thehindu.com/multimedia/dynamic/01239/anti-collision_1239237f.jpg

    A path-breaking technology to avoid train collisions was tested successfully between Navandgi and Mantatti stations in Ranga Reddy district on Tuesday morning.

    The technology, based on a combination of GPS and Radio Frequency-enabled technology, applies brakes without intervention of the train pilots once it detects another locomotive on the move or stationary on the same track avoiding collisions.

    A host of railway officials including Railway Board chairman Vinay Mittal watched the successful trial of the Train Collision Avoidance System (T-CAS) in Ranga Reddy district, about 150 km from Hyderabad.

    Two trains with some coaches equipped with the T-CAS were run in opposite directions on the same track at a speed of 60 kmph. Both the trains screeched to a halt at a distance of about 200 metres, as the tense officials watched the rare spectacle of two locomotives hurtling at each other. Smiles broke out as the efficacy of the new technology proved at least on a trial basis.

    The second trial was with a stationary train and a moving train. The officials stationed a train on the tracks at Mantatti and made the other one approach it at a speed of 60 kmph. Interestingly, the senior most railway officials were sitting in the moving train which approached the stationary one it from behind. As the train screeched to a halt, smiles and handshakes were seen among the visibly relieved officials.

    The T-CAS was developed jointly by the Research, Design & Standards Organisation (RDSO) and a Hyderabad-based private organisation.

    “It’s a path-breaking technology and we would like to complete all the trials within a year. The T-CAS has more capabilities than the technologies being used in many advanced countries”, Mr. Mittal said.

    Director-General of RDSO Ramachandran said the technology with some limited options would be introduced in some sections within six months.

  • The Best way to Connect Tirupathi with Bangalore is Just build a Straigh Railway Line Between Coramadal in Kollar to Guidyatham which is Just Approx 70 Km and solve all connectivity problems.

    Projects which need immediate attention are
    1. Doubling and Electrification of Secundrabad-Manoharabad, doubling and electrification of Falaknuma to Umdanagar and further from Umdanagar to Shamshabad (new line) (as part of MMTS phase 2). Upgrading of Moulali and Makajgiri stations and providing stops for long distance trains (thus by passing Secundrabad station) should be top priority for SCR.
    2. A new line from Kolar (Srinivaspur) to Madanapalli road (~ 60 km) provides direct alternative route from Bengaluru to Tirupati (via Kolar, Madanapalli, Pakala) avoiding circuitous route from Jolarpeta, Katpadi). This link connects Bengaluru, Tirupathy and Chennai with direct and shortest route and has the potential for high speed bullet trains as it connects three most important cities in south India and part of the track is already under trunk route (from Chennai to Renigunta). This also partly completes the proposed Bengaluru-Cuddapah line, the later in the present scenario might need several years to complete. Cuddapah to Madanapalli road can be completed in future at an appropriate time. Alternatively Kolar- Nangali- Chittoor may be taken up to provide straight line connection between Bengaluru and Chennai.
    And of course, finishing of railway projects which are progessing at a good rate like, Vishnupuram-Jaggayapet, Nizamabad-Jagityal, Yerraguntla-Nandyal, Gadwal-Raichur and Devarakadra-Krishna (Mahaboobnagar-munirabad section). Interestingly, all these are under construction projects are meant for connecting two important lines (eg. Gadwal-Raichur connects Hyderabad-Bangalore route with Mumbai-Bangalore route).

    As far as I know, Mellacheruvu-Vishnupuram is under construction (you can search for tenders). Janpahad is connected from Vishnupuram from the existing Railway siding near India cements company. Jaggaihpet-Mellacheruvu was completed and opened for goods traffic (mainly cement). Connecting Jaggaihpet-Vishnupuram ensures connectivity for all the cement industries near by (in jaggaihpet, Matampally, Dondapadu, Mellacheruvu,Janpahad). This was the intension of starting the line. But it has additional advantages as it connects Secundrabad-Vijayawada line with Bibinagar-Guntur line. It can be used to connect towns like Nalgonda, Miryalguda, Nadikudi towards Vijayawada,and Vizag or towards Warangal, Karimnagar. It can be used by trains from Chennai going towards Delhi in future, if Nadikudi-Srikalahasthi, and perhaps Manuguru-Ramagundam are connected.

    I would advise you to look up for the posts in this thread.http://forum.**********/showthread.php/23681-Reducing-Chennai-Bangalore-distance/page4

    There is a steep gradient between Gudiyattam and Kolar, that was the reason track veered towards Jolarpet and then back towards Kolar. If you read the posts, it would be clear that the line that you are pitching does not make sense. Just connecting two places on google maps is not enough, you have to take into account the terrain, relative advantages, cost savings etc.

    Tirupati: Andhra Pradesh would get priority in the next railway budget, said Kotla Jaya Surya Prakash Reddy, the Minister of State for Railways. He addressed a press conference at Tirupati railway station on his visit to the temple town after assuming the charge in the Ministry of Railways.

    “I will utilise the opportunity given by the almighty and the Congress Party to complete the pending projects in the State, as the State has got the railway ministry, after a gap of 10 years.

    I discussed with the Chief Minister to complete Hyderabad Metro Rail, in a speedy manner,” Surya Prakash Reddy said. He promised that steps will be initiated to provide facilities at par with international standards in Tirupati railway station. The minister said that steps are being taken to prevent train accidents, especially fire accidents.

  • The Secunderabad-Vizag-Secunderabad train likely in coming budget

    Minister of State for Railways Kotla Suryaprakash Reddy hinting at the possibility of introducing Secunderabad – Visakhapatnam – Secunderabad Shatabdi Express in the ensuing budget is like music to the ears of the people of Visakhapatnam region.

    Almost all important express trains from Visakhapatnam to Hyderabad are running to full capacity and this high-speed train is expected to ease the huge waiting lists on them. It may be mentioned that the berths on trains to Hyderabad were booked months in advance before Dasara and now the same is the case for Pongal.

    Shatabdi Express trains are among the fastest trains in India. The Bhopal – New Delhi Shatabdi is the fastest train in the country running at a speed of 150 KMPH, covering the 701 km distance in 7 hours and 50 minutes with five halts on the way.

    The proposed Shatabdi train between Secunderabad and Visakhapatnam can cover the 699-km distance in about 8 hours and 30 minutes considering the fact that it would have three or four halts and taking into account the capacity of the track, say well-informed people who have been keeping track of the developments.

    The proposed train can have a composition of seven or eight bogies with two EOG (End On Generator) car. It could have LHB rake with 78 seats in each Chair Car and 56 seats in Executive Chair Car, taking the total capacity to 602. Snacks, meals and beverages are served on board Shatabdi trains without any additional cost to passengers. These trains are day trains and one rake would be sufficient to run the train as they return to the originating station the same night. The proposed train can leave Secunderabad at 6 a.m. and reach Visakhapatnam by 2.30 p.m. via Vijayawada. It can have stops at Kazipet/Warangal, Vijayawada, Eluru, Rajahmundry and Samalkot. It has to cross almost three trains till Vijayawada with that schedule.

    Our MPs should, however, ensure that the proposal is included in the ensuing railway budget.

  • A ‘mechanical’ rooting for Railways (http://www.thehansindia.info/News/Article.asp?category=1&subCategory=2&ContentId=102645)

    Special Class Railway Apprentices' Examination (SCRA), held held once in every two years by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) is a test that tracks you to a career in Indian Railways, the largest employer in India.

    The candidates, who are selected through the examination, are absorbed into the prestigious central service of Indian Railway Service of Mechanical Engineers (IRSME), after the training. It would be quite challenging in terms of skills and talents and also quite rewarding with excellent remuneration, scope for growth in career, and job security. The program was started in 1927 by the British rulers.

    There are two ways of entering the IRSME. One is through the Combined Engineering Services examination of UPSC for which only the candidates who have completed their B.E./B.Tech./B.Sc (Engg)/ A.M.I.E. degree in mechanical engineering are eligible. And the second one is through this SCRA examination only. This year, the notification was published on 13 October in ‘Employment News’ and other leading dailies in India and the examination will start on 20 January next year.

    For this examination, the candidates who have completed their 10+2 (Intermediate/HSC/other) course in the subjects of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry only are eligible. The candidates must be in the age group of 17 and 21 years only. The selection process consists of a written examination and a personality test.Written examination carries 600 marks having three papers and the personality test will have a weightage of 200 marks. Paper –I will have the questions from English, G.K. and Psychological aspects.

    Paper –II will have the questions from Physics and Chemistry while the Paper –III will be on Mathematics subject.Each paper will have duration of two hours only. All the questions are of multiple choice type. Those candidates, who are selected as SCRAs, will join the undergraduate program in mechanical engineering at Indian Railways Institute of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering at Jamalpur in Bihar. After the completion of four years of training there, they will be absorbed into IRSME. The Indian Railways had made some arrangements with Birla Institute of Technology at Ranchi in this regard. The candidates will get their B.E. degree in mechanical engineering after the completion of the training.

    The candidates will get a stipend of about Rs.9,100 per month during the training period. They have to keep in mind that the training program is very hard. After the completion of the training, the officers of IRSME will start their respective careers at the rank of Assistant Mechanical Engineer. Later, they will be promoted to the ranks of Divisional Mechanical Engineer, Senior Divisional Mechanical Engineer, Deputy Chief Mechanical Engineer, Chief Mechanical Engineer, Principal Chief Mechanical Engineer and Member (Mechanical) of Railway Board.

    The officers can also be appointed in the posts of Divisional Railway Manager or General Manager of a zone at some point of time in their respective careers. If there is a seniority, the IRSME officers can also become the Chairman of Railway Board, who is next only to the Minister in Indian Railways.

    The IRSME officers are posted in the production units of locomotives, coaches, wheels and others and their repair units which are spread all over the country. They will also be given the duties in some wings of the train operations like crew management, rolling stock management and restoration of the traffic in case of accidents.

  • Secunderabad-Tirupati Express flagged off

    Route of erstwhile Venkatadri Express revived after a decade and a half with the launch of bi-weekly express

    An important rail route that was disconnected over a decade and a half ago for gauge conversion was re-connected with the launch of a bi-weekly Secunderabad-Tirupati Express.

    Train no. 12770 bound for Tirupati was on Saturday flagged off by Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy in the presence of Union Minister of State for Railways (MoSR) Kotla Suryaprakash Reddy. It will run via Kacheguda, Kurnool, Dhone, Gooty, Dharmavaram, Madanapalle, Kalikiri, Piler and Pakala, the route taken by erstwhile Venkatadri Express between 1975 and 1995.

    Mr. Kiran Kumar Reddy said as establishment of a coach factory in Kazipet was important for the State he had requested Mr. Suryaprakash Reddy to get the project moving, while also proposing a similar factory in Rayalaseema to spawn development and generate employment. Creation of railway infrastructure and development went hand in hand he said. With the MoSR from the State long-pending railway projects would gain momentum, he stated, promising total cooperation towards cost-sharing.

    Others present included Ministers J. Geeta Reddy (Major Industries), Danam Nagender (Labour and M. Mukesh Goud (Backward Classes Welfare), Secunderabad MLA Jayasudha Kapoor, MP Anjan Kumar Yadav and MLC Amos.

    Injustice

    Mr. Suryaprakash Reddy said it was true that Andhra Pradesh had faced some injustice in Railway Budgets and considering the financial position of the Railways, most projects were getting delayed. “As a Member of Parliament, I complained of injustice and as a Minister now, I am determined to rectify the situation.

    Safety

  • Two new express trains for State soon



    Flagging off the Secunderabad-Tirupati Express (bi-weekly) train at the Secunderabad Railway Station here on Saturday, minister of state for railways Kotla Surya Prakash Reddy said that two new express trains - Visakhapatnam-Shirdi and Visakhapatnam-Tirupati Express - will be introduced soon in the state.

    The bi-weekly train will run on Tuesday and Saturday from Secunderabad and on Friday and Sunday from Tirupati, halting en-route at Mahbubnagar, Kurnool, Dhone, Anantapur, Dharmavaram, Madanapalli, Piler and Pakala.

    Hinting at a possible increase in the railway ticket fares, Reddy said that the railways was in a financially precarious situation and that a lot of projects were being delayed due to lack of funds. He requested the people to cooperate with the railways.

    While admitting that injustice was done in the allotment of railway projects and new trains for the state, Reddy assured that he would see that Andhra Pradesh gets better shares in all respects in the next railway budget.

    CM Assures Govt’s Cooperation

    Chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy assured that the state government would extend all cooperation, including cost sharing, for the railway projects in the state.

    He suggested that the frequency of Secunderabad and Tirupati Express be increased to daily while naming the train after Lord Venkateswara.

    He requested the railways to set up a rail coach building factory at Rayalaseema that would contribute to its development and also generate employment in the region.

  • SCR to remove unmanned level crossings

    Railways proposes to operate gates with solar energy by 2014

    The South Central Railway (SCR) is planning to remove all the unmanned Level Crossings (LCs) in the next three years to prevent accidents.

    The railway officials are taking measures to sanction works and the process is likely to begin early next year. The SCR will either remove the unmanned rail gates, arrange gatemen or build Road Over Bridges (ROBs) across the tracks, said SCR Vijayawada Divisional Railway Manager Pradeep Kumar.

    The SCR is also proposing to operate 125 rail gates with solar and wind power in a phased manner to save power.

    The Engineering Department is supplying solar energy to several installations such as retiring rooms at Nellore, Gudur, Narsapur, Rajahmundry and Vijayawada. It is also operating street lights with solar energy in some colonies in Vijayawada.

    Mr. Kumar said that by 2013-14, the SCR will operate level crossing gates in Vijayawada Division with wind and solar energy.

    Speaking to The Hindu , Mr. Pradeep Kumar said that about 13,000 unmanned level crossings exist in 68 divisions in Indian Railways. “In Vijayawada division, 132 unmanned level crossings are located in Krishna, Guntur, Prakasam, Nellore, East and West Godavari districts. Once a detailed study is completed, we will initiate the works,” said the DRM.

    According to safety authorities, many accidents are occurring at unmanned railway crossings. Twelve accidents occurred at the unmanned level crossings in the State during 2011-12, and 13 accidents were reported this year, so far.

    “Our aim is to remove all unmanned railway gates in the next three years. We will construct rooms for gatemen wherever necessary and construct bridges with the support of the State Government.

    The officials had recommended closure of some unmanned level crossings in the division”, said Mr. Pradeep Kumar.

    In Vijayawada division, 132 unmanned level crossings are located, says DRM

  • Division banks on Kotla

    With Kurnool MP Kotla Jaya Suryaprakash Reddy becoming the Minister of State for Railways, Guntakal railway division expects to be alleviated from its long suffering.

    The division comprises the Tirupati – a high-traffic railway station – because of the devotees visiting the temple town.

    Because of the neglect by railway ministers hailing for other states, the division has been crying for budgetary allocations.

    Guntakal division was formed over 56 years ago in Southern Railways (Madras). Later it was merged with the South-Central Railway of Secunderabad. Presently, the division is expanded with 131 railway stations in nine districts of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, covering nearly 1,300-km railway line.

    Repeated representations for budgetary allocations for new projects for Guntakal to successive railway ministers earlier had yielded nothing. Sources said a doubling of the railway line between Guntakal and Guntur has been pending for years.

    There are only four trains to Tirupati – a highly popular destination – via Guntakal.

    Though, eight trains were earlier running in this route, it has been reduced to four because of the single line.

    Several stations in the Guntakal division lack basic facilities like drinking water and rest houses. What has added to the problems faced by passengers travelling in this route is the delay in the upgrade of Tirupati, Guntakal, Gooty and Anantapur railway stations.http://www.deccanchronicle.com/121210/news-current-affairs/article/division-banks-kotla

  • Special trains, RTC services for WTC

    The government has decided to make arrangements for operation of special train and RTC services to Tirupati from different places in the State to facilitate those delegates and others who failed to get reserved accommodation so far, to attend World Telugu Conference (WTC) starting there from December 27. If the railway authorities rule out running special trains due to some reasons, efforts will be made to get at least some extra bogies attached to the existing Tirupati-bound trains.

    The decision was taken at a meeting here on Monday where Chief Secretary Minnie Mathew reviewed the arrangements being made for the event, responding over the messages received from several people that they failed to get reservation tickets.

Satyanarayana Murthy, Cheruvu Ramakotaiah (BJP) and others.

    The samithi leaders had recently apprised Minister of State for Railways Kotla Suryaprakash Reddy of the diversion of trains, decrease in the quota of berths, extension of important trains to Bhubaneshwar while not extending trains terminating at Bhubaneswar and Puri to Visakhapatnam.

    They impressed on him on the need for creation of a new zone with headquarters in Visakhapatnam to end the injustice and he responded positively. The samithi leaders will felicitate Mr. Suryaprakash Reddy when he visits the city on December 15 to flag off Shirdi and Chennai special trains, which have been made into regular trains.

  • New super fast train for Secunderabad flagged off

    Most of the berths have been reserved for next two months

    Indicating the need for introducing more and more trains from the city to various destinations, the AC train introduced between Kakinada and Secunderabad left here with 100 per cent occupancy on the first day on Sunday night. Many commuters, whose tickets were in RAC and waitlist status, were returned home after the train was being flagged-off.

    The train with 10 AC III tier, three AC II tier, and one AC I tier coaches is the first air-condition super fast express train in the South Central Railway.

    Since obtaining ticket for the Gowthami Express, the lone express train from the city to the State capital, remained next to impossible for the people, demand had been there for another train for the last three years and now the tri-weekly express train has evoked a very good response from commuters.

    According to the railway officials, most of the seats and berths have already been reserved for the next two months in the new train.

    “As there are no direct trains to places like Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata from the city, the regular commuters are forced to depend on road transport. There is no dearth of occupancy for trains on any route from Kakinanda,” says Y.D. Rama Rao, president of the East Godavari District and Cocanada Town Passengers’ Association.

    Population up

    “On a par with the industrial development, population too increased in the city and the surrounding areas in the last 10 years. Youngsters from here got placements in places like Mumbai and Bangalore and trade ties with those cities too are being strengthened,” he observes. Mr. Rao points out that there is only one Vayudoot from the Rajahmundry airport a decade ago, but now four flights a day are being operated with full occupancy.

    Kakinada has emerged as an important revenue-generating station for the South Central Railway, thanks to the spurt in trading activity from the port here. “On an average, the Vijayawada division earns Rs. 8 crore a day towards freight, in which Rs. 2 crore is from Kakinada alone,” says S. Subba Rao, Additional Divisional Railway Manager of the Vijayawada division.

  • Trains delayed due to interlocking works

    Trains coming into and going out of Visakhapatnam were delayed by a couple of hours due to interlocking works taken up at Gopalapatnam on Monday. To make matters worse, a clash between two groups on train no. 16324 Shalimar – Trivandrum Express at Marripalem Halt compounded the problem.

    A group of unreserved passengers were coming by a reserved coach from Odisha and West Bengal.

    Ayyappa devotees, who had reserved their tickets, boarded the coach at Visakhapatnam and asked the ‘unreserved passengers’ to vacate their berths. The devotees became furious, when the unreserved passengers, who were mostly daily-wage earners, refused to vacate the berths.

    The two groups clashed with each other and when the train stopped at Marripalem Halt, the ‘unreserved passengers’ were made to alight by the TTEs. When the train started a few minutes late, some of them threw stones at the Ayyappa devotees.

    Government Railway Police (GRP) Inspector G. Venu Gopal and his team brought the situation under control.

    The Inspector said that the Koraput-Visakhapatnam train was stopped at Marripalem and the daily wage earners were sent to the Visakhapatnam Railway Station so that they could board another train there.

    To work for alleviation of problems of slum-dwellers living on railway lands

    Union Minister of State for Railways Kotla Suryaprakash Reddy flagged off two regular weekly Express trains – one to Chennai and the other to Shirdi – in the presence of Union Minister of State for Industries D. Purandeswari, Minister for Infrastructure and Ports Ganta Srinivasa Rao, MLAs Dronamraju Srinivas, Malla Vijay Prasad, Chintalapudi Venkataramaiah and Anaparthy MLA Sesha Reddy – at the Railway Station here on Saturday.

    Responding to the demands for formation of a separate zone with Visakhapatnam as headquarters and other issues like re-routing of diverted trains, Mr. Suryaprakash Reddy said he fully understood the aspirations of the local people and promised to join hands with them in their struggle for creation of a new zone. He announced that the Visakhapatnam – Tirupati train would be stopped at Duvvada and said Howrah – Tirupati would be re-routed through Visakhapatnam. He also promised to strive for alleviation of the problems of slum dwellers living on railways lands.

    Fare hike

    He, however, said in AP alone development works to the tune of Rs. 25,000 crore were pending and it could take another 50 years for their completion, considering the poor financial position of the Railways. He said a fare hike was inevitable in the next budget to raise finances but added that the lower classes would be spared.

    Ms. Purandeswari sought re-scheduling of the timings of the Visakhapatnam - Chennai Weekly Express so as to reach Chennai by 5.30 or 6 a.m. She said since the introduction of the Shirdi Sai Nagar Special, a few years ago, the berths have been overbooked by more than 100 per cent. She sought that it should be made into a daily train. Referring to the proposal for ‘re-classification of railway zones’, she appealed to Mr. Suryaprakash Reddy to ensure that the committee, constituted for the purpose, should submit its report in a fixed time frame.

    She sought that he should take the initiative for the zone as it was a ‘political decision’, to end the ‘step motherly’ attitude of East Coast Railway towards Waltair Division. She also sought renaming of the two trains in tune with the aspirations of the local people. Mr. Ganta Srinivasa Rao said the Railway Zone Sadhana Samithi has been fighting for a separate zone for the last several years and hoped that it would materialise during the tenure of Mr. Suryaprakash Reddy. He recalled how Railway Ministers had favoured their native states in the past. Divisional Railway Manager Anil Kumar briefed about the development works being undertaken at Visakhapatnam Railway Station.

    Uttarandhra JAC leader J.T. Rama Rao demanded sought a commitment from the Railway Minister on formation of a separate zone but the latter pacified him saying that he had already announced his support to the demand.

    East Coast Railway Shramik Congress Divisional Coordinator V.J. Ajay Kumar, Zonal Railway Users Committee Member D. Varada Reddy and Pradesh Congress Committee secretary Beesetti Nookeswara Rao were present.

    Rail users let down again

    ECoR and SCR have no plans to operate Sankranti specials

    Sankranti, also known as ‘pedda panduga’, is the time of the year when Telugus make it a point to visit their native places and celebrate the festival along with their family and friends. Trains are the most sought-after mode of transport in view of safety, reliability, and low cost. Thousands of people from Visakhapatnam and North Andhra districts of Vizianagaram and Srikakulam have settled in Hyderabad, Chennai, and other cities and towns of the country.

    Needless to say that trains bound for Hyderabad run to full capacity almost all through the year. When that is the case, the demand for berths during Sankranti and other festivals is a foregone conclusion.

    Ironically, both the East Coast Railway and the South Central Railway do not seem to have any plans to introduce special trains. Neither of the two zones has made any announcement so far though Pongal is just round the corner. Border disputes and path constraints between the two railway zones are believed to be the reasons for the ‘disinterest’ in running special trains. SCR had operated only a few specials last year due to shortage of loco pilots, guards, and other constraints like inadequate number of platforms at Secunderabad.

    The specials announced by ECoR last year had to be withdrawn on the ground that it was not informed to SCR in advance. It was an indication of lack of coordination, understanding, and communication between the various wings of SCR and ECoR.

    This is forcing many passengers to travel in unreserved compartments and others to cancel their journeys. “Can the ECoR authorities ignore the annual Rath Yatra of Lord Jagannath in Puri and abstain from running specials?” ask rail users.

    The Waltair division officials claim that they are in a comfortable position as far as supply of rakes is concerned. When that is the case, why is ECoR unable to take a timely decisions to obtain the path and run specials to Secunderabad, Tirupati, and Chennai, which are the routes with huge wait list, as tickets are booked 120 days ahead of Pongal?

    Creation of a new zone with Visakhapatnam as headquarters or bringing Waltair Division under the purview of SCR is the only way to provide better services to the local people, feel those watching the developments.


    “Can ECoR abstain from running specials for the annual Rath Yatra in Puri?” they ask

  • SCR completes an engineering feat (http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Vijayawada/scr-completes-an-engineering-feat/article4385311.ece)

    Low Height Subway constructed within a day

    The South Central Railway, Guntur Division, has accomplished a rare engineering feat as the works relating to construction of a Low Height Subway (LHS) under the Kankaragunta Road over Bridge (RoB) are nearing completion. The LHS would run parallel to the existing RoB ending the travails of commuters on either side of the track.

    The Guntur Municipal Corporation, in a special case, has agreed to bear the entire cost of the LHS and deposited Rs.2.5 crore with the Railways. Minister for Agriculture Kanna Lakshminarayana, who is also MLA of Guntur West Constituency, took the initiative to lay the LHS fulfilling an electoral promise made in the year 2009.

    A team of dedicated workers supervised senior railway officials including Divisional Railway Manager, Guntur, N.K. Prasad began the work at 9 a.m. and rounded up the most challenging task of entrenching 24 concrete slabs each weighing 33 tonnes each under the ground. Trains movement towards Hyderabad was restored in the night after the railway tracks were reconnected.

    The deadline imposed was eight hours but it took a little longer.

    As the combination of man and machine slugged it out under the sun- digging, levelling, diverting and finally placing each of the pre cast concrete block in their positions and finally covering them before reconnecting the tracks- it was a truly test of character and a display of perseverance .

    Curious onlookers had a field day catching a glimpse of the works standing on Kankaragunta RoB. A group of civil engineering students too evinced a keen interest and some of them took notes for their project work.

    The contracting agency for the Railways had engaged five earth movers and four cranes for the massive work.

    The workers began by digging the ground and then leveled it. The Over Head Electrical equipment was removed for safety. The first pre cast block was placed at about 4.30 p.m. and within a span of three hours, the workers were able to place 10 blocks.

    The DRM personally supervised the works from afternoon and was present till the works were completed. Engineering team headed by senior Divisional Engineer Murali Krishna monitored the work at ground zero.

    Member of Parliament, Narsaraopet M. Venugopala Reddy and Vinukonda MLA GV Anjaneyulu took a break from their schedules and witnessed the works.

  • [QUOTE=kesi0072011;96701282]As far as I know, Mellacheruvu-Vishnupuram is under construction (you can search for tenders). Janpahad is connected from Vishnupuram from the existing Railway siding near India cements company. Jaggaihpet-Mellacheruvu was completed and opened for goods traffic (mainly cement). Connecting Jaggaihpet-Vishnupuram ensures connectivity for all the cement industries near by (in jaggaihpet, Matampally, Dondapadu, Mellacheruvu,Janpahad). This was the intension of starting the line. But it has additional advantages as it connects Secundrabad-Vijayawada line with Bibinagar-Guntur line. It can be used to connect towns like Nalgonda, Miryalguda, Nadikudi towards Vijayawada,and Vizag or towards Warangal, Karimnagar. It can be used by trains from Chennai going towards Delhi in future, if Nadikudi-Srikalahasthi, and perhaps Manuguru-Ramagundam are connected.[/QUOTE

    Thanks for the details. I don't understand why Janpahad is required to connect Mellacheruvu with Vishnupuram. I though connecting Vishnupuram with Jagayyapet will reduce the distance between Hyd and VJW. I don't think Janpahad station is on the biginagar-guntur rly line.
    P.S: I just looked at google maps and it seems that Janpahad comes between Vishnupuram and Mellacheruvu. They seems to have finished the line between Vishnupuram and Janpahad and now they just need to extend the line from Janpahad to Mellacheruvu.

    BHIMAVARAM(AP): Kotla Jaya Surya Prakash Reddy, Minister of State for Railways, today laid foundation stone for doubling/electrification project here in Andhra Pradesh.

    The doubling/electrification project will cover Vijayawada-Gudivada-Machilipatnam, Gudivada-Bhimavaram, Narsapur-Bhimavaram-Nidadavolu sections of Vijayawada division of South Central Railway (SCR).

    Addressing a gathering at Bhimavaram town station, he said the ambitious project heralds a new dawn in the region's rail transport infrastructure.

    The project, estimated to cost Rs 1,500 crore, is spread over 221 kms covering 51 railway stations, he said.

    Earlier, Devi Prasad Pande, General Manager, SCR, in his address spoke on the performance of SCR during the financial year 2012-13.

    Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) of the East Coast Railway's Visakhapatnam Division, Anil Kumar, said that it had performed well in both passenger and freight traffic during 2012-13 to became one of the few divisions in Indian Railways to surpass its target.

    Addressing a gathering in connection with Railway Week celebrations here today, he said that the freight loading division achieved an originating load of 51.54 tonnes to become one of the few Indian Railways divisions with loads of more than 50 tonnes.

    He said revenue earnings had also crossed Rs 5,000 crore and touched Rs 5,275 crore during 2012-13.

    The load increase is mainly due to increase in loading of iron ore, gypsum, alumina, steel and other products.

    On passenger traffic, he said that originating passenger traffic in 2012-13 was 32.94 million, which is four per cent higher than the previous year's originating passenger traffic of 31.62 million.

    Similarly, earnings from passengers during the year 2012-13 is Rs 312.96 crore, which is 11 per cent more than the earning of Rs 280.89 crore achieved in 2011-12.
