Discussions were said to revolve around an analysis of the Secunderabad-Ballarshah section of the corridor that lies on SCR’s network. The Russian delegation sought to know the technicalities of the section and the Additional General Manager briefed them on the salient aspects of the line and highlighted the average traffic flow of passenger carrying and goods trains in the section.
The extensive dialogue included issues like the various components of rail infrastructure – civil engineering involving bridges, tracks and maintenance technology, signalling, rolling stock pertaining to locomotives, coaches and power for the like.
