Hopefully over a period of time i am sure the patronisation would increase. While all the trains coming from pollachi do go to palghat junction, it would have been also good if train 06770 which will depart from POy at 20:45 and reach PGTN at 22:15 is made to terminate at pgt junction.
For passengers who wish to travel further to SRR side or coimbatore side it would be convenient as they can reach pgt junction. Otherwise they will have to take auto etc from palakkad town at that time which might be difficult since it is late

in PGT the work of the platform where the PGTN bound trains has to acomadate is not yet completed, further work completion we can expect the terminations at PGT, and also some trains nowadays which run through CBE ED TPJ will also be diverted.

I think it in other way... Since now trains are extended to POY & trains from POY not been extended to PGT, there are more chances that POY would be the terminal station...

new development will enable the Railways to save a lot of money on fuel. Currently, there is a saving of 120 kilometres to Dindigul.
• Officials said the Palakkad-Pollachi stretch had handled an average of 300 tonnes of goods per month during the days in which it was a meter gauge route. The route would re-establish direct link between Mangalore Port and Southern Tamil Nadu. Between Madurai and Mangalore, the distance would be reduced by 120 km
• In the initial phase, two passenger trains from Tiruchirappalli would be extended to Palakkad in the new route.Also there are plans to extend Thiruvananthapuram-Palakkad Amrita Express to Madurai in the new route.

The manner in which he conveyed would raise some doubts !
