Oct 18 2016 (11:09)   Passengers tweet travel woes

Trains originating and terminating in Visakhapatnam will, perhaps, top the list, if there is a competition for unclean coaches, non-functioning of AC and overflowing toilets not to speak of infestation of bandicoots and rickety old coaches.
The tweets from passengers on the railway Twitter account during the last couple of weeks are an indication of the state of affairs on these trains.
Nikita Arya, who booked a 2nd AC ticket to travel from Pune to Visakhapatnam by train No. 18520 on Sunday (October 15), tweeted “as the train arrived, we were asked to
shift to a 3rd AC compartment. Many of us were asked to adjust without any prior notice. How can they do that? When we asked the person concerned to make us talk to his senior, he denied and handed us over a complaint book. Where the hell are we heading?”
Nikhil Pavan Kalyan, who travelled by the Visakhapatnam – Tata express on October 16, tweeted “AC not working in 3 rd AC in today’s 18516. Electrician is helpless. Unfortunate.”
Seshagiri Paturi, who travelled by train No. 12727(Visakhapatnam-Hyderabad Godavari Express) from Visakhapatnam, tweeted “bathrooms flooded due to malfunctioning of water pipe. Need your immediate attention.”
Chandan Kishore, who travelled by 18520 (Mumbai LTT to Visakhapatnam) from LTT to Secunderabad, tweeted: “Bogey not cleaned and also water is not available.” These are not isolated problems but have been persisting for a long time with even people’s representatives expressing their ire over the poor maintenance of coaches on trains originating/terminating in Visakhapatnam.
Unfortunately, the routine replies given by the railway authorities concerned are mostly limited to: “We regret the inconvenience” and “matter forwarded to the official concerned.”
“We travelled in the G-3 coach of the Secunderabad-Visakhapatnam Garib Rath express on October 7. We booked our ticket online and paid Rs.50 extra, towards bedrolls at the time of booking,” said R.V. Koteswara Rao of Visalakshinagar, who travelled with his wife Lakshmi Kumari.
When we approached the bedroll supplier after the train started, he asked us to pay Rs.50 for the bedroll. I told him that we had paid at the time of booking. He asked me to show the printout but I showed him the SMS on my mobile, as I was not carrying the printout.
“He refused to believe me and showed a chit of paper on which the names of passengers in the coach, who had to be supplied bedrolls was given. Though I was aware that the printout of the ticket need not be carried, I reluctantly paid Rs.50,” Mr. Koteswara Rao said.
“I was fast asleep, when the supplier came and woke me up around 11.30 p.m. He told me that he had forgotten to include my name and handed over Rs.50 back to me. I lost my cool as he robbed me of my sleep. There should be some foolproof measures to check the recurrence of such mistakes,” he says.

The city would certainly be made headquarters of the new railway zone being created for Andhra Pradesh and, if this did not happen, BJP leaders would go on indefinite fast, party leaders M. Nagendra and Ch. Ramakotaiah said here on Monday.
They claimed at a press conference that the BJP-led Central government had provided a good package for the State instead of the Special Category Status. In the case of railway zone and its headquarters issue, they were confident that both the demands would be met.
Former city president P.V Narayana Rao was
MLC poll
They appealed to graduates in Visakhapatnam, Vizianagaram, and Srikakulam districts to enroll themselves as voters for the graduates constituency and exercise their franchise in the elections to the Legislative Council.
The BJP and the Telugu Desam would contest the North Andhra graduates seat together and a decision would be taken by the two parties on the candidate.
Mr. Ramakotaiah, who contested the elections in the past, said he could not say anything on the issue at this juncture.

If DVD gets halt,Ecor will not take the train to VSKP in time.
DVD halt will force SCR to re-route via NGNT.

DVd is not reason. Trains will be delayed from Marripalem. I think its plan to get more income to SCR.
But AKP also disadvantages. SCR should develop Thadi which is just 2 min walk from national high way. Also too much place is availble. ANy time Auto , Buses also available to almost every location towards AKP and Gajuwaka.
The only
thing is people and politician of this region should have some logic than real estate.

Oct 11 2015 (16:57)   Union aviation minister seeks bulb railway line at Vizag

Jayashree   36381 news posts
Entry# 1614178   News Entry# 244494         Tags   Past Edits
VISAKHAPATNAM: Union civil aviation minister P Ashok Gajapathi Raju has mooted to the East Coast Railway (ECoR) development of a bulb line at the Visakhapatnam railway station to enable engines to reverse without changing the direction of the train, thus reducing halting time.
The minister, who visited Bhubaneswar on Friday to meet Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik with regard to a dispute between Andhra Pradesh and Odisha over an irrigation project on the river Janjavathi along the the Andhra-Odisha border, also had a brief meeting with ECoR officials, including general manager Rajiv Bishnoi, and discussed various railway projects related to north coastal AP.
aviation minister said that the waiting period (maximum 30 minutes) for entering Visakhapatnam railway station was affecting the punctuality of trains at the station. "There is an urgent need to develop the bulb line through the Vizag Port area and connecting the main line at Gopalapatnam. This will eliminate the reversal of trains at the station, reducing the halting time and thereby handling capacity of the station. This apart, a third railway line from Gopalapatnam to Visakhapatnam station should also be developed along with two additional platforms towards Gnanapuram," he said.
During the meeting, the minister also mentioned about his personal request to the Union railway minister for running a Shatabdi Express between Vizag and Vijayawada.
Running the Vizag-Secunderabad Duronto Express as a daily train, reducing journey time of Visakhapatnam-New Delhi AP Express from the present 36 hours to about 28 to 30 hours, stoppage of all express and superfast trains at Kothavalasa and Duvvada satellite railway stations were some of the other demands put forth by the Union minister.

If it reaches Gwalior and departs earlier by 52 mins, the whole TT enroute Gwalior to VSKP shall be revised. Now wish to see some magic over here and entire TT should be reduced by 4-5 Hrs reaching VSKP @ 13:30-14:00.
As already SCR earlier proposed to speed up 22416 and make it reach ECoR limits 2 hrs early.
