Since there are many train from Hwh to Ypr ..including one daily (12245+22863)
I think 12863 should restrict itself till BBS/PURI

Please do not compare Kolkata with VSKP..Kolkata serves as the hub of Indian Railways of eastern region...people from neighboring states Jharkhand, some parts of Bihar and the whole of North East depends on Kolkata...

VSKP is also not small ..
3 North Coastal Dists depend on VSKP ..
Also Southern & South West Dists of Odisha also depend on VSKP
Parts of Chattisgarh also depend on VSKP ..
I'm not comparing VSKP to HWH or any other place .. but do not demean other cities ..
People & their necessity to travel is same across anywhere

It can't be like HWH/SHM/SRC/SDAH needs many trains to SBC and others should not have one ..

u must have been surely out of your demand before making such demand....a train which runs jampacked 365 days u want it to be restricted till bbs in return for a train which runs 5 days a week and is expensive and a second weekly ac express train.....think about the normal people who don't want to spend an extra amount on duronto and who can't really afford ac tickets.....think twice before posting such kind of blogs

Naresh, a government employee living in Anakapalle, and Achari, a teacher living in Vizianagaram, who commute to the city daily for work, find the lack of local trains a curse for commuters.
“Though there are trains from Anakapalle to Visakhapatnam, they do not match the actual demand. I have to board either 57271 BZA- Rayagada Passenger or 57255 Kakinada - Vizag EMU, which are already packed to capacity with hardly any space to get in,” says Naresh.
Mr. Achari travels from Vizianagaram to Visakhapatnam every day. He boards 78531 Vizianagaram-Visakhapatnam DEMU, which is
packed to capacity with hardly any space to stand comfortably leave alone sitting in the train.
Both Naresh and Achari feel that there should be MEMU s (Mainline Electrical Multiple Unit) between Tuni/Anakapalle to Vizianagaram via Visakhapatnam after every 1 hour and a few services can be extended up to Annavaram one side (as it would meet the requirement of pilgrims travelling to Sri Satyanarayana Swamy temple) and Srikakulam on other side (as it would be useful to those going to Arasavalli and Srikurmam temples).
The introduction of the local trains would help in reducing the load on the National Highway and minimising road accidents. This is not all, the middle class and the poor will be saved the hassle of paying three or four times the fare for travel in buses.

Apr 10 2016 (23:14)   Gnanapuram side of railway station gets a makeover

Visakhapatnam: Work to improve the Gnanapuram side of the city railway station is underway which will include a spacious garden, parking lots, wide roads and a bus shelter across nearly 12 acres of land.
The Waltair division of East Coast Railway (ECoR) has initiated the development of the Gnanapuram side in October 2014 as part of the Swachh Bharat Mission and Swachh Rail initiative. Nearly Rs 7 crore including Rs 2 crore from the 2013-14 budget has been spent to develop the facilities for passengers. All development works are expected to be completed by the end of this summer.
a few years ago, this part of the railway station used to be an isolated place attracting anti-social activities. The area was full of bushes and lacked road connectivity, lights, parking facilities and security personnel.
"Nearly 40,000 to 50,000 people including railway passengers use this entrance now. Earlier, we hardly saw 5,000 people use this entrance," a senior railway official said.
The Waltair division has revamped the entire stretch with beautiful lawns, roads, lights, arches and mural paintings at the station. This apart, the railway officials also stationed important trains at platforms 7 and 8 which are close to the Gnanapuram side. These include Godavari Express, Duranto non-stop train, Garibrath Express, LTT Visakhapatnam-Mumbai, Dakshin Express, Hirakhud Express, Janmabhumi Express and Tirumala Tirupati Express.
Officials from the Waltair division of East Coast Railway have started beautifying the city railway station with mural paintings at platforms, walls and other areas on the lines of the Borivali railway station in Mumbai.
Speaking to TOI, Waltair divisional senior commercial manager M Yelvender Yadav said, "We developed the Gnanapuram side of the station to balance the passenger entry at both sides. The Gnanapuram side is very spacious. We will come up with more development works at the Gnanapuram side to make the station a model."
Seeing tremendous passenger footfall in the Gnanapuram side, the RTC also started plying a number of city bus services up to the railway station.
G Satyanarayana, deputy chief traffic manager for APSRTC, said, "We daily run over 25 city bus services connecting to Gnanapuram side of the railway station to other parts of the city. We hope the passenger flow will increase in the future."
