Apr 18 2017 (07:34)   New train proposed from Mettupalayam to Madurai

The Railways has proposed to operate 11 trains to Mettupalayam through the new Podanur – Pollachi broad gauge line soon.
The list included a new train from Mettupalayam to Madurai, Hari Shankar Verma, Divisional Railway Manager, said while addressing the Salem Divisional Railway Users’ Consultative Committee (DRUCC) meeting in the city on Monday.
He said that of the 11 trains proposed in the new route, four were already running in the MG section before BG conversion works were launched in this route.
Mr.

Verma was responding to the query raised by P. Rajendran from Mettupalayam in this regard at the meeting. To another question of Mr. Rajendan, the DRM said that the work of construction of building for Thudiyalur Railway Station will be completed by June next and it will be put to use immediately. With a view to develop Mettupalayam as a tourist centre, the works for increasing the platform length at Mettupalayam Railway Station is progressing at a fast pace. The Commissioner for Railway Safety will inspect the same after its completion.
To a query of C. Balasubramanian on multi-level parking facility at Coimbatore Junction, he clarified that for the earlier tender, there was no response and steps have been taken to float the tender again.
Referring to his complaint on over-charging by the parking contractor, the DRM explained that last year 18 complaints were received and the contractor was penalised and his contract was cancelled.
Now, a temporary contract is in place and as on date, there were no complaints, he added. He assured that steps will be taken to display parking fee in all prominent locations of parking area.
J.V. Sureshkumar from Tirupur, pleaded for stoppage of all trains for more than five minutes at Tirupur Railway Station to load parcels. Mr. Verma clarified that already many trains have been given stoppage up to five minutes and additional time would infringe the punctuality of trains. When the member requested for stoppage of more trains, including Nagercoil - Shalimar Gurudev Express, Thiruvananthapuram - Chennai Express, the DRM assured that steps will be taken towards the same.
On request from C.S. Gowthaman from Erode for provision of a passenger general waiting hall on platform No.3/4 at Erode Railway Station, the DRM explained that the waiting hall facility at subway is capable of accommodating the passengers. When he requested for stoppage of trains such as Chennai - Coimbatore inter-city express, Yercaud express, etc., at Cauvery Railway Station, the DRM explained that the distance between these two stations is too short to accept such a demand.
Athiyanna, representing the Differently Abled Passengers’ Association, pleaded for online reservation facility.
The DRM explained that it was mandatory to check the concession documents of the travelling person. Hence, it is not viable to accept this demand.
Many members drew the attention of the authorities to increase in the number of crimes in running trains in Salem-Jolarpet section. Mr. Verma said that he had discussed the matter with Government Railway Police authorities and they have agreed to post a Deputy SP rank officer at Salem, to tackle this menace.

Greetings and best wishes to members. I am logging in after 1 year.
I am elated after seeing this new train announcement. This should be a regular weekly train.
Nashik Road stop should be added for convenience of pilgrims.
Direct connection to Nashik (Tryambakeshwar), Bhusaval (Ajanta caves), Omkareshwar (via Khandwa-3 hours by bus). Never thought possible.

Saw an android app, you can provide your PNR and mobile number. You would be getting free SMS till the ticket gets confirmed or cancelled.

As this is now a fully electrified route (including MTP-CBE), two stops can be introduced at Karamadai and Periyanaickenpalayam. It will be very useful and will not incur much wastage of time. Just 1 minute halt will be sufficient. Platforms are not long enough but passengers are ready to manage.

According to me there is no requirement of stoppage at Periyanaickenpalayam as this stop falls withing the Coimbatore City itself, Karamadai can be ok, but I think it is also not necessary as of now, because this Niligiri is only the first train which leaves towards Chennai at night, and this train stops at Coimbatore for at least 20 minutes, so to be on time Extra Stops are not necessary. The other way could be adding the more passenger trains, MEMU towards Coimbatore.

Karamadai can be considered. One more main requirement for us is to accommodate all 24 coaches of blue at MTP. MTP pitlines and the station has to revamped so that it can be an additional terminal for CBE. Next is construction of the old BG line like a byepass to PTJ ( which was existent few decades back) so that Blue can continue from CBE to IGU without Loco reversal. This can help MTP a lot and it can be a secondary terminal for CBE side as CBE is saturated

MTP station should be surely upgraded.
Karamadai stop will be very much appreciated and won't cause much delay.
Reversal delay not a problem as most of the passengers board at CBE Main only. Attaching extra coaches takes more time.

One trip of this can be extended to Coimbatore with GNWL for Chennai. It will be a great help for passengers from Coimbatore to Howrah. It is difficult to get tickets from Coimbatore to Howrah in trains originating from Kerala and Mangalore.

This junction may need more platforms. After Gondia-Jabalpur BG is completed some long distance trains will take this shorter route between Balharshah & Jabalpur and save 250 km. Fortunately no loco reversal will be needed.

Becoz of that only the platforms are increased to 7, and I think 7 is quite decent in no., heavier junctions like ET, JHS are managing decently with 7 pf's, however no. of platforms can be enhanced once the traffic will increase.
