might be but, their freight more in KK , Raipur section from VSKP. RJY-VSKP is not having issues with freight and also after AKP the fright section has its own network. DVD - VSKP has almost dedicated Passenger tracks. From GPT cabin to VSKP only passenger trains has its tracks freight wont run.
ECoR mainly says more issues with maintenance when it comes to vizag trains. They always say PM, SM is not possible. LHB Maintenance is not possible at VSKP or PF is not enough. Mostly issues related to VSKP station they say.

even the DVD-BZA section too has good amount of freight traffic which one can observe when we travel along the route...you can find freight standing in main/loop in most of the stations waiting for signal and the trains made to skip the statoins via loops ...
they cant put the pythons/goods rakes in the loop but because of the fact that the goods if halted on the Loops is causing losses compared to the goods standing on the main line as per IR ...
considering the fact that the VSKP-BZA section is already
running to more than its full potential (including the freight traffic which has its own dedicated slots to run the goods all the day long) , increase in the infra is what much needed here not just @ the terminal stations like VSKP but also all along the route...having a dedicate freight corridor is one such solution which we are hearing from quite some times now..not sure when that is going to materialize to the fullest ..

ECoR is not having much freight traffic in BZA region. BZA-SLO we will find more freight traffic as Kakinada port will get more from down south.
DVD - BZA 3 rd line announced, mostly its works may start in a year or 2. Also Kotipalli - Narsapur line works will start along with Gudivada - Bhimavaram doubling. So plans are there increase in the capacity but things are not moving as expected.

Its just the mind set of the people. There is a huge regional differences between Telugu - Odiya which you can understand if you talk to native Vizag people. As long as it wont change nothing great will happen to VSKP.

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
