May 05 2016 (12:45)   Forget railway zone, no proposal even for Rajdhani Express from Andhra Pradesh

Visakhapatnam: Even as the people are expecting a new railway zone to be formed for AP and political parties are milking the issue for their benefit, a Rajdhani Express to connect the new capital of Amaravati or Vijayawada via Vizag with New Delhi is yet to be considered.
The issue was raised by TDP Rajahmundry MP M Murali Mohan in the LoK Sabha on Wednesday. He enquired if the central government was contemplating introducing a Rajdhani Express from Amaravati-Vijayawada to New Delhi via Visakhapatnam, Nagpur and Raipur. To this, Union minister of state for railways Manoj Sinha said at present, there was no such proposal due to 'operational and resources constraints'.
his statement, Sinha said, "Rajdhani Express class of trains are long distance fast moving prestigious trains, primarily meant for connecting the national capital and state capitals running on very tight timings with limited halts enroute."
Furthermore, he said, "At present, there is no proposal to start a new Rajdhani Express from Amaravati/Vijayawada to New Delhi via Visakhapatnam, Nagpur and Raipur due to operational and resource constraints."
However, he said, "Introduction of new trains including Rajdhani Express trains is an ongoing process over Indian Railways subject to traffic justification, operational feasibility, availability of resources."
"At the time of bifurcation, we had demanded that there should be two trains - one is the AP Express and another Rajdhani Express. The Rajdhani Express could start from Vizag and AP Express could start from Tirupati so that it will facilitate movement of people from our state. But, the state government has to push these proposals forward and put pressure on the central government. However, the state government is not interested in railway projects," opined Visakha Railway Zone Sadhana Samithi convenor JV Satynarayana Murthy.
Explaining the advantage of having a Rajdhani originating from Amaravati/Vijayawada via Vizag, rail enthusiast Pradyumna Mushunuri said, "It will cover more places in AP including the Godavari districts and going via Vizag it will be a shorter distance to Delhi rather than the existing trains."
He also said that the timings of the existing AP Express from Vizag to New Delhi via Vijayawada leads to two entire days being spent on the train instead of which the train could depart in the evening for the convenience of passengers.

An evening departure from VSKP towards NDLS should be scheduled. Suppose a 21:00 hours departure from VSKP is planned with arrival at NDLS scheduled at 04:00 or 04:30 then end to end travellers and passengers going to Delhi can reach there early in the morning and attend their offices on time. Similar return timings from NDLS to VSKP should be planned so that passengers don't have to spend more than one full day in the train traveling end to end.
The idea of a Rajdhani from BZA/Amravati to NDLS is fine but routing it via VSKP-NGP is absurd because frankly speaking anyone from BZA/Amravati (THE CAPITAL OF A.P) won't be willing to pay the fare for the longer route of
reaching Delhi via VSKP.
IF VSKP people do need a faster and direct connectivity between Delhi and VSKP then a Duranto should be planned via Raipur and Nagpur if it is the shorter route or any other shorter route with minimal reversals and traction changes. Starting a Rajdhani from BZA/Amravati for the sake of it and routing it via VSKP will not serve BZA people who want to got to Delhi well.
Will anyone of you guys if living in BZA/Amravati will book a ticket in Rajdhani going via VSKP-Raipur-NGP to Delhi when you have to pay for the excess distance of at least 1100 kms via this route?

I have traveled by this train a couple of times, the MPS stenciled on the coaches is 160 kmph, but i don't understand why it's limited to 110 kmph ? Are there any chances of speeding this train up in next time table change ? And when is the next time table change going to be announced ?

or this can be reverted back to its old NDLS-BZA schedule so that atleast early morning arrival at VSKP is ensured.

Traveled last Friday by this train from Tadepalligudem to Nagpur. The 2AC coach in which I traveled was manufactured in May 2015 from Kapurthala and the speed certification of the coach was 160 kmph. Loco link from VSKP to BZA was WAP-4 and from BZA to NDLS was WAP-7.

The 2AC coaches are very well maintained and can be opted to travel with your family in privacy and comfort. The speed and punctuality maintained between Tadepalligudem and Nagpur is very good but I think at least an hour or forty-five minutes can be shaved off the running time between these two stations overtaking 12803/4 Swarna Jayanthi Express.
