portion in which works were currently underway include the one between Valadi and Tiruchi.
The doubling project is being executed by the Rail Vikas Nigam Limited, a Government of India enterprise. The project once completed would enable the Railways to operate more trains.
Mr. Agarwal said doubling works in the Thanjavur - Ponmalai broad gauge section was expected to be completed by July next year. The Tiruchi Railway Division, he said, had registered an increase in freight loading this fiscal as compared to last year.
On the safety front a total number of 25 unmanned level crossings in the division had been eliminated either by manning them or through construction of limited use subways.
Surveillance in major railway stations in the division would be enhanced through installation of cameras using the 'Nirbhaya' fund.
The stations where surveillance cameras are proposed to be installed include Thanjavur, Kumbakonam, Villupuram and Mayiladuthurai.
Mr. Agarwal said Kumbakonam station in Tiruchi Division was adjudged the fifth cleanest stations among the 407 stations across the country in a cleanliness survey of major railway stations in the country conducted by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation.
The Tiruchi Railway Junction secured the 15th rank among the category 'A' stations in the survey.
A nine-day 'Swachchta campaign' was being organised from September 17 to 25 all over Indian Railways with special drives on cleanliness at railway stations and trains besides cleaning of drains, garbage disposal and conducting campaigns on cleanliness.
Tiruchi station’s feat
The Tiruchi Railway Division had also launched a massive cleanliness drive by nominating officers to visit stations and carry out the drives, he said.

‘After completion of regirdering work’
It has been decided to increase the speed of trains on the two-km-long Pamban bridge after completing the re-girdering work, M. Suyambulingam, Southern Railway Chief Engineer (bridges) has said.
“We will explore the possibility of increasing the speed of the trains after replacing 27 more corroded girders,” he told The Hindu here on Saturday.
The speed of the trains

would be increased to 30 kmph from the existing 15 kmph in the first phase and then to the maximum possible speed of 45 kmph, he said after inspecting the ongoing work.
Sixteen highly corroded girders were being replaced with metalised girders, he said adding after completing the work by the end of this year, 27 more corroded girders would be replaced to enhance the safety and strength of the bridge.
The work would be completed by May, 2017 after which none of the steel girders in the bridge would be due for renewal for the next five years, he said. The Railways have sanctioned Rs 11 crore for the project and three of the 27 girders were fabricated at the Southern Railway Engineering workshop in Arakkonam, he added.
He said the Southern Railway was testing three types of paint/coating systems in six of the 16 girders, being replaced now, on an experimental basis to test the long life of the girders in the highly corrosive area.
Accordingly, the girders were coated with Zinc rich high performance coating, Acrylic polysinoxane based rich high performance coating and Copolymatric anticorrosive based rich high performance coating, he said.
“Once the new coating system becomes successful, all the girders will be given the anti-corrosive coating,” he said adding this would help the railways to bring down the annual maintenance cost of the bridge from Rs. 1.5 crore to Rs. 1 crore.”

DMK leader M. Karunanidhi on Saturday opposed the Centre’s decision to disinvest the shares of the Public Sector Units including Salem Steel Plant, alleging that it was part of the BJP-led government’s plan to open the gates for private operators.
“The BJP government’s proposal has lent credence to the idea that is seeking to impose Hindutva as a political ideology and capitalism as an economy,” said Mr. Karunanidhi in a statement.
Recalling the efforts taken during the DMK regime, Mr. Karunanidhi said the ruling AIADMK should act immediately to prevent the Centre from

going ahead with its proposal.
He said the Salem Steel Plant was providing direct employment for over 2,500 employees and indirect job opportunities to over 5,000 workers and the privatisation process would affect the livelihood of thousands of workers. “It generated a Rs. 100 crore profit between 2003 and 2010 and its burden increased only after the launch of Rs. 2,000 crore plant. Moreover, shifting its headquarters to Kolkata led to losing many valuable customers,” he said, adding that instead of privatising the plant, the government should leave it to the administration of efficient officials.
The DMK leader said the Centre should also diversify the activities of the steel plant and it should be allowed to produce electricity. “It is capable of producing a unit for Rs. 4 while it will cost Rs. 7 in the private sector. A railway coach factory should also be set up in Salem,” he said.

Commuters travelling by Namma Metro to the city railway station will have to wait till March 2017 before they can use the foot overbridge (FOB) connecting the two stations. The Namma Metro stop has the same name as the railway station. The FOB promises seamless connectivity between the two mass transit stations.
Currently, commuters using the Purple Line (Byappanahalli-Mysuru Road) have to use a roundabout way to get to the city railway station. Once the Green Line (Nagasandra-Yelachenahalli) becomes operational, footfalls are expected to increase.
In April this year, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation

(BMRCL) was criticised by users for not providing a safe crossover to the railway station before the launch of operations. Within a fortnight, an understanding was reached with the Bengaluru division of the South Western Railway (SWR) and a temporary railway ticket counter was put up at the exit of the metro station.
It was also decided that BMRCL would build the portion of the FOB till the boundary of the railway station while SWR would take care of the remaining portion with the BMRCL footing the bill. Metro officials expect their portion of the work to be completed by November this year.
However, for the railways, the FOB is part of a larger project to construct an escalator and other facilities for platform 10, which is the reason for the delay. “There are some technical difficulties, like underground cables and laying of foundations for the bridge, which have to be overcome. We also have to build a platform in the portion where tracks have been laid and this will take some time,” said Sanjiv Agarwal, Divisional Railway Manager, SWR.
At the moment, there is no question of passengers alighting at the city railway station to catch a train. “Even with one suitcase, the journey to the platform is painful. They must make sure that this bridge is built as soon as possible,” said Vinay Shetty, a resident of Indiranagar.

at Mathura junction shortly,” said Kumar.
Mr. Kumar said Mathura junction railway station will also get a station director by the year-end.
“Considering the importance of stations, railway board has selected 75 stations for appointing a station director for better administration and coordination with the passengers. By the year end, Mathura would have its station director for better management,” he said.
Only 12 stations across India have station Directors.
Mr. Kumar said the cleanliness drive was an attempt by the railways to create awareness about cleanliness among passengers and appealed to people to join hands with railways in their endeavour.
“We feel efforts at administrative level and social level, if associated, would bring better result,” he said.
The cleanliness drive by the railways began on September 17 and will conclude on Saunday. - PTI

एक्सप्रेस को दिसंबर से फरवरी तक निरस्त कर दिया जाता है। ऐसे में लखनऊ से देहरादून जाने वाले हजारों यात्रियों का सफर मुश्किलों भरा हो जाता है। एकमात्र ट्रेन दून एक्सप्रेस का संचालन तो कोहरे में होता है, लेकिन इसमें पहले से ही लंबी वेटिंग होने कारण यात्रियों को राहत नहीं मिल पाती है। इसे देखते हुए पहली बार मंडल प्रशासन ने जनता एक्सप्रेस को पूर्णरूप से निरस्त न करके सप्ताह में पांच दिन इसका संचालन करने का प्रस्ताव बोर्ड को मंजूरी के लिए भेजा है। मंडल के परिचालन से जुड़े अधिकारियों के मुताबिक बोर्ड इस प्रस्ताव पर एक सप्ताह में आदेश जारी करेगा। इस बार कुशीनगर एक्सप्रेस, शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस, पुष्पक एक्सप्रेस, मरुधर एक्सप्रेस, चंडीगढ़ एक्सप्रेस, बरेली-वाराणसी एक्सप्रेस सहित 36 ट्रेनों को सप्ताह में दो से तीन दिन निरस्त किया जाएगा।
