The new double track in the 25-km stretch from Kallakudi Palanganatham to Ariyalur would be commissioned after carrying out mega block works on that stretch.
With the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) having accorded mandatory safety clearance, the double line laid between Kallakudi Palanganatham and Ariyalur is expected to be thrown open to rail traffic in August first week.
The new double track in the 25-km stretch from Kallakudi Palanganatham to Ariyalur would be commissioned after carrying out mega block works on that stretch.
Preliminary works connected with the commissioning of the double line have already commenced.
Prior to commissioning, the existing single line would be connected with the double line through points and

crossings. Some new points would be inserted and a few others removed.
Cross over connections would be made between the single line and the double line on the stretch that has four stations – Kallakudi Palanganatham, Kallagam, Sillakudi, and Ariyalur.
Signals would be provided in the double line to pave the way for passing of trains on the new track.
Railway officials told The Hindu that the mega block work for commissioning the double track would be taken up soon. The mega block works would be taken up in the morning and completed the same evening.
The double line was part of the 270-km Villupuram–Dindigul doubling project being executed by the Rail Vikas Nigam Limited, a Government of India enterprise.
The 50-km portion from Valadi to Ariyalur was chosen for doubling as it was crucial segment in the Villupuram-Tiruchi chord line route.
Doubling works were taken up simultaneously in two portions — Valadi to Kallakudi Palanganatham (25 km) and Kallakudi Palanganatham to Ariyalur (25 km).
The double track laid from Valadi to Kallakudi Palanganatham was thrown open to rail traffic last year after the Commissioner of Railway Safety accorded safety clearance.
Once the double line laid in the remaining portion from Kallakudi Palanganatham to Ariyalur was commissioned, it would substantially reduce congestion on the chord line route especially at night when rail traffic was high as trains would not have to halt for crossings, say officials.
New station buildings have been constructed at Kallagam and Sillakudi and some additions made to the Ariyalur station as part of the doubling works.
The platform of Kallakudi Palanganatham station had been extended to accommodate 24 coaches.
High-level platforms have been built at Kallagam and Sillakudi railway stations. The Kallakudi Palanganatham – Ariyalur segment has seven major bridges and 31 minor bridges midway.

पेरिस। फ्रांस में इस महीने के शुरू में हुई रेल दुर्घटना की जांच पड़ताल में अजीब वजह सामने आई है। इस दुर्घटना की वजह चूहों को माना गया है। हालांकि इस दुर्घटना में किसी की मौत तो नहीं हुई लेकिन 40 लोग जख्मी हो गए थे।
‘लोकल’ के मुताबिक, फ्रांस की सरकारी रेल कंपनी एसएनसीएफ ने अपनी जांच में पाया है कि चूहों ने सिग्नल के तार चबा डाले जिससे सिग्नल उस समय भी हरा रह गया जब उसे लाल होना चाहिए था। इसी कारण से दो सवारी गाड़ियां आपस में भिड़ गईं।
फ्रांस इन्फो के अनुसार, दुर्घटना के समय जहां चूहों ने तार काट दिए थे, वहां कुछ काम चल रहा था। रिपोर्ट में कहा गया है कि सिग्नल की पिछली जांच जून 2013 में हुई थी। फ्रांस की रेल प्रणाली

Rats blamed for rail accident in France
Rats have been blamed for a train accident in France that left 40 people injured earlier this month, media reports said on Tuesday.
Rats nibbling at signalling cables, which led to it staying green when it should have been red, led to a crash between two passenger trains, the Local reported citing findings of France’s state-owned rail company SNCF.

दुर्घटना का सबसे बड़ा कारण मानवीय भूल या तकनीकी खराबी हो सकती है. लेकिन अगर किसी जानवर की वजह से कोई बड़ी दुर्घटना हो जाए तो यह खबर चौकाने वाली ही होगी. फ्रांस में इस महीने के शुरुआत में हुई रेल दुर्घटना की वजह चूहों को माना जा रहा है. हालांकि इस दुर्घटना में किसी की मौत नहीं हुई लेकिन 40 लोगों के घायल होने की खबर है.

के रूप में है। यहां हजारों की संख्या में उद्यमी अपना सामान मालगाड़ी के माध्यम से देश के विभिन्न शहरों में पहुंचाते है, लेकिन उद्यमियों को मालगाड़ी बुक कराने के लिए अभी तक स्टेशन के ही चक्कर लगाने पड़ते थे। जिससे उनका काफी समय बर्बाद होता था। उद्यमियों की सहूलियत के लिए रेल मंत्री सदानंद गौंड़ा ने रेल बजट 2014-15 में मालगाड़ी बुक कराने के लिए ऑनलाइन सुविधा शुरू करने की घोषणा की थी। जिसे अब पूरा कर लिया गया है। रेलवे बोर्ड की डायरेक्टर ट्रैफिक कमर्शल रेट अशीमा मल्होत्रा की ओर से इस संबंध में सभी स्टेशनों के चीफ गुड्स सुपरवाइजर को लेटर जारी किया गया है कि वह ऑनलाइन सुविधा के बारे में उद्यमियों को जानकारी दें।
कैसे बुक करें मालगाड़ी इसके लिए उद्यमी को सबसे पहले रेलवे की फ्रेट वेबसाइट click here पर जाना होगा। वेब पोर्टल खुल जाने के बाद राइट साइड में e-demand का ऑप्शन दिया गया है। इस पर क्लिक करने के बाद दिए गए कॉलमों में मांगी गई जानकारी फिल करने के बाद बुक ऑप्शन पर क्लिक करें। रजिस्ट्रेशन फीस भी ऑनलाइन जमा कर सकते हैं। इसके बाद अब आपका आवदेन स्वीकार किया जाएगा तो रेलवे खुद आपसे संपर्क कर मालगाड़ी के पहुंचने की सूचना देगा।

South Western Railway has ordered the permanent closure of parcel bookings – both inbound and outbound – from 45 stations in Mysore Division with immediate effect. Sources in the Mysore Division told The Hindu that hardly any revenue was being generated from the service at certain stations.
“It costs the Railways Rs. 7,000 in fuel consumption for each pair of trains to stop and start again from a station, whereas the parcel revenue would be a few hundred rupees,” said the source. The authorities could not keep permanent staff at the stations for booking a few parcels. Hence station masters were trained to book and receive parcels, besides discharging their duty of train operations. The delay in loading and unloading parcels also added to the running time of trains.
The authorities conducted

KOCHI: Acute shortage of second class sleeper coaches prompted the Southern Railway to replace them with AC three-tier rakes in a few trains and second class sitting coaches with second sleeper coach in a few others.
D Lakshmanan, chief public relations officer, Southern Railway said the replacement of coaches was a temporary measure which would be replaced as soon as second class sleeper coaches were available. There were not plans to replace all second sleeper coaches with AC coaches in mail and express trains, he said.
On Monday, TOI published a report saying railways might replace second class sleeper compartments with AC ones in near future.
He also said one second sleeper class coach would be temporarily augmented with the Dibrugarh-Kanyakumari-Dibrugarh Express (15906/15905)

CHENNAI: Cancellation of 50 Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) trains on the Beach-Arakkonam and Chennai Central-Arakkonam sections for around eight hours from 9.10 am on Tuesday came as a hindrance to a majority of passengers commuting to and from suburban areas.
Apart from cancellation, trains were plying only on the fast lines and hence did not stop at stations like Korattur, Pattaravakkam, Thirumullaivoil, Annanur, Hindu College and Pattabiram. As a result, passengers from these areas had to alight at Villivakkam or Avadi and take a share-auto or bus to travel to their destination.Many passengers were seen approaching the station master and other officials at the Moore Market Complex (MMC) station to enquire about train timings and stoppages.
The cancellation of trains was on account of insertion of a Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC) box

at Korattur gate for building a road under bridge, which is necessary for smooth flow of vehicular traffic. Around 30 trains were cancelled on Sunday for the same reason. Railway officials said that such necessary maintenance works are carried out on holidays so that students and officer-goers are not affected by the cancellation.
Ashraf (name changed), a 25-year-old civil services aspirant, clearly exasperated at the stoppage, said that the motorman of the 12.10 pm EMU was unaware if the train would stop at Avadi. “Cancellation of about 50 trains is ridiculous, especially on a holiday,” he said.
The exasperation of commuters is valid given that a train journey from Chennai Central to Avadi takes 35 to 45 minutes on average, whereas the same distance by bus would take more than an hour. In addition, due to Metro Rail work on the Poonamallee High Road, buses need to take a circuitous route.

CHENNAI: A bomb threat to a train arriving at the Central Railway station on Tuesday turned out to be a hoax but it had kept the city police and their Railway counterparts on their tenterhooks.
Around 250 police personnel including senior officials and bomb detection and disposal squads sweated it out at the railway station after a phone call about a bomb on a train was received around noon.
According to police, the phone call was made to the police control room by Sudalaimuthu (40), a call taxi driver hailing from Thoothukudi, through his mobile phone at 11:51 am. The driver, living in West Mambalam with his family, overheard three men at a tea stall in Velachery discussing that a bomb would go off at around 6.30 pm at Central station which

‘should kill at least ten people,’ a police official said. He was taken into custody for interrogation and released after few hours, police added.
Personnel from Railway Protection Force (RPF), Government Railway Police (GRP) and the city police arrived with their respective bomb squads around 3 pm  and carried out combing operations at the station. Passengers were subjected to frisking while large parcels were inspected in greater detail by the bomb squad. All trains at the platforms were sanitised.
Though the combing operations were over by 5 pm, around 100 police personnel, including armed commandos and dog squads, were present at the station premises even after 6.30 pm. A bomb squad was sent to Egmore station as well as the driver said he had overheard ‘places other than Chennai Central’ being mentioned.
Security at the station has been stepped up after the twin blasts on a Guwahati bound train on May Day this year which had claimed two lives. Since then, police have been kept on tenterhooks by hoax calls.

A new Rs 107-crore corridor, which will end the need for goods trains using the Harbour line and delaying local trains, is stuck because of a few plots of land totalling a mere 2,650 sq ft, the size of a 4BHK flat
The Harbour line, which caters to 10 lakh passengers every day, was initially used to ferry freight from Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT). And, even today, the practice of long goods trains using the tracks continues, delaying local train services. The goods trains delay services by using the tracks meant for local trains. File pic While one proposed line the Wadala-Kurla corridor can improve this situation, a mere 250 sqm (2,650 sq ft) of land and a lot of red tape are standing in the way. Sources in the Central Railway said that they need that amount of land,

in different locations, from the MbPT to start the new Rs 107-crore route. The corridor would facilitate the movement of goods trains from Wadala to Kurla on a separate section so that they do not need to use the CST-Panvel Harbour line. Presently the goods trains which are often 50 coaches long take the Harbour route to Wadala, keeping the line meant for local trains busy. The new route will also ensure that commuters don’t have coal ash flying in their faces, which happens often at stations and in local trains on the Harbour line when a coal-laden train passes by. “This route will help us separate the goods train operation completely and improve the Harbour line,” said a senior CR official. The corridor is likely to be partly elevated, for which work will need to be carried out at some stations between Wadala and Kurla, including Guru Tegh Bahadur Nagar, which will undergo a major change at a cost of around Rs 6 crore. Red tape Sources said that letters are currently being exchanged between CR and MbPT for the land to be handed over. They said the main problem is that there is no provision for the MbPT to hand over land, and it can only lease land out. “We are approaching the Ministry of Shipping to make special amendments for these plots of land,” said a CR official. The new line will also help in the movement of freight and increase the number of goods trains plying on the route every day, which currently stands at only 15 or so.
