A Good day for Andhra Pradesh Rail Travelers. The new AP Express train has a distinction with other State Express trains by having All LHB AC Coaches and also another distinction wrt Average Speed which is very low compared to others.
To make it accessible to all types of passengers, instead of All AC Express, a Bi-Weekly AP Rajadhani Exp and Daily AP Express (With Sleeper and AC Class) should run from Visakhapatnam to New Delhi via Vijayawada with an average speed of around 65 KMPH. One more AP Sampark Kranthi Express from Tirupathi to New Delhi should be introduced 4 days a week via Nellore, Ongole and Vijayawada.
Congratulations

As per the news on various media, Committee submitted its report to create a New Railway Zone for AP with Vijayawada, Guntur and Guntakal Divisions with Vijayawada as Zonal HQ. They reported that VSKP division cannot be de-linked from ECoR and merged with the new zone.

At least now Railways should consider the following proposal to get Win-Win situation for both AP and Orissa.

can have 2 Divisions similar to Nagpur under SECR and CR
VSKP-ECoR can have VSKP-Kirandul (KK Line) and Rayagada-Koraput railway lines
VSKP-SECoR being a Zonal HQ and Division with VSKP-IPM/SPT/PSA, VSKP-Rayagada, VSKP-RJY and Samalkot-COA railway lines.
BZA Division needs to transfer RJY-AKP and SLO-COA Lines to VSKP Division.

No Capital, No Railway Zone, and more to come in this way

AP to have new railway zone

Visakhapatnam to be its headquarters
Railway coach factory and 59 model railway stations to come up in the State

Hyderabad: The wishes of north Andhra people will finally come true. The State will have a railway zone with Visakhapatnam as its headquarters. Four railway divisions of Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada, Guntur and Guntakal would be merged with the new zone. The residuary Andhra Pradesh has no railway zone after bifurcation and the existing South Central Railway, with Secunderabad as headquarters, comes under the new State of Telangana. The new railway zone is being sanctioned as a part of the AP Reorganisation Act of 2014.

A seven-member committee headed by executive director of Railway Board Devender Singh held discussions with the transport department of Andhra Pradesh at the Secretariat here on Thursday afternoon to elicit the opinion of the government on the merger of four divisions under the proposed new railway zone. The committee also discussed the way to set up a rail coach factory and take measures to establish rapid rail and road connectivity from the new capital to Hyderabad and other important cities of Telangana.

The meeting also deliberated on laying new railway line connecting Raipur, Chhattisgarh capital, to Visakhapatnam in order to make use of the ports and for other mutual benefits. “We also discussed about creating 59 model stations with all the modern facilities across the State,” said the Principal Secretary of Roads and Buildings B Syam Bob, while talking to The Hans India.

The members of the committee include executive directors of Railway Board Alok Kumar and Vijay Kumar, chief engineer, SCR NS Uikey, chief mechanical engineer, SCR S K Gupta, AC Ray and SP Samantharay of East Coast Railway, Bhubaneshar.

There was some news in yesterday's eenadu about new railway zone. The committee will submit its report in a couple of days. Also, the committee is going to give report that it is difficult to form new railway zone with BZA, GNTL and VSKP divisions as ECOR/Odisha is not willing to loose VSKP division.
Now it is high time for our elected people's representatives - our CM, Sri Venkaiah naidu and MP Haribabu to exert pressure and get the railway zone for AP with VSKP as Head quarters. Otherwise the same situation will continue and AP can't develop railway network in the state.

Biggest flaw of your suggestion:
You suggested: keep Kirandul section with ECoR then really you are suggesting to take maximum juice from cane.
Do you have idea how much this section earns ?

In case two divisions for Vskp both divisions must be in New Secor railway zone. We can't see again that our brotherhood another Vskp division. Is again suffering like us. It will be injustice for another vskp division in ecor. For one ur giving sweets with full of box to ecor . And for another looted box to Secor vskp division about revenue. See Nagpur example one nagpur division is with facilities and another nagpur division is crying for facilities

Bad idea for Bza division maybe. They ll lose the port of COA and thats a mess. WAT should retain KK line and instead of 2 divisions at WAT. One can be transferred to Rayagada. KR line ll go to Rayagada division. SO will the section from Vzm to Therubali. This way it ll be better according to me.

VSKP(SCM) - KTV has 4 railway lines of which one is excusively for VSKP-Kirandul Line. That line starts from Steel plant and joins parallel at North Simhachalam with main line and continues till Kothavalasa. So ECoR can take care of that line without interefrence to SECoR

Telangana people fought for 60 years and got a new state. VSKP people are fighting for a new railway zone with VSKP as HQ for the last 20 years but still zonal HQ would be BZA/GNT!!! Any way Capital will be BZA/GNT and now Zonal HQ BZA/GNT and some more... Government understood feelings of TelanGana and formed new state in the same manner it should form a new zone with VSKP as HQ. Otherwise This will lead to another movement in North Coastal Andhra for a separate state with Visakhapatnam as Capital inspite VSKP is the biggest city of AP from 2nd June 14 onwards.

First of all Telangana people didn't fight for 60 years.All these days did VSKP fight for a new zone or to get out of ecor? What was vskp's plan?(for those 20 years) To just come and snatch 2,3 divisions of scr and start a new zone with it as HQ.(all these before bifurcation) Does it matter much where HQ is? Basically HQ is decided by operational ease,land availability etc.
Can somebody tell me what vskp people are doing
when SER was divided and WAT was merged in ECoR?

The people from VSKP region are fighting from the past 15 years for a new zone. Just because of bifurcation Govt. thinking of creating new Railway Zone with BZA as head quarters. HQ should be given to VSKP as that is the dream for the region after all VSKP will not become Capital to AP in spite of all its strengths, infrastructure, facilities, transport, international airport etc.

Moreover the income from VSKP division itself is more than 5000 Cr per year, lot of Rly land is available in and

around VSKP, more platforms can be built, more number of trains can be operated due to more pit lines.
