The following are a few updates regarding BZA & GNT divisions.
1. The Guntur- Tenali stretch is undergoing doubling and electrification of the present single electrified line.
2. The Guntur - Guntakal stretch
is undergoing electrification of single line and electric poles have reached past KM 200 & a little beyond Giddalur starting from GNT.
1. The doubling and electrification works are in progress from Vijayawada to Bhimavaram. Work started in 2013. But, as of electrification, OHE poles haven't come up yet for most of the stretch.
2. Works on Gudiwada - Machilipatnam. Bhimavaram- Nidadavolu, Bhimavaram- Narsapur stretches are yet to start.
Please make a note of this and make necessary changes in the Atlas.
If you want pictures regarding the same I'll give u those that I have.
Thank you in advance.

Rayalaseema MPs should pressure for getting Kondaveedu SF & daily tag. Once offices shift to BZA, this will be sort of Godavari for many MLAs & MPs.

We already had trains like Swarna Jayanthi, which were not 24 coach trains and not to forget, with a better schedule. Its a bold move to snatch a train under ministerial whim from BZA, and lets see how good its patronage is. We had trains taking 32 hours and 34 hours in the likes of SJ and Samta. Now we are seeing an all time low, a fully air conditioned train taking freaking 36 hours. Honestly I do not know how people are feeling happy for this kind of service, when there is no demand at all for it to be extended to VSKP. This is how money is wasted.
All in all, if it has good amount of quota until Nagpur,
may be people of Telangana and Maharastra could use this. I'm feeling happy for people of Peddapalli, Ramagundam, Sirpur Kaghaznagar for getting an AC train to New Delhi. The long pending demand of 12437/8 halt can finally come to an end.
My dear objectors, please mind that in the days where the AC Classes of existing trains are in a waiting lists which could be cleared with augmentation of 'one' extra coach, this full new AC Express is being flagged off. And for record purpose, we say IR is suffering from losses. I know this will get automatically closed with objections of VSKP activists, but I pity the narrow minds who object this 'just because they are from Vizag,' but all I do is hope that this train is utilized by people and hope that people who demanded this extension and the politicians behind this that they get some common sense of how to save money.

A pity that people object facts and say that objections be removed. Targeting a region is no big deal except when it is done on one particular place.
You have posted facts and it stays that a region who got the first train in almost a decade lost it even before it's introduction.
