A communication to this effect is said to have been received from the Railway Board by the South Eastern Railway (SER), Eastern Railway (ER), and South Western Railway (SWR). The four trains to be rerouted are Howrah-Vasco Amaravathi (four days a week), Howrah-Puducherry Aurobindo weekly, Bhagalpur-Yeshwantpur Anga weekly and Santragachi-Tirupathi weekly express. Kambhampati Haribabu, MP of Visakhapatnam, has been demanding rerouting of the diverted trains particularly, Howrah-Vasco Amaravathi Express to link the two important tourist destinations of Goa and Visakhapatnam. The diverted trains on which no decision has been taken are Howrah-Pransanthi Nilayam weekly, Howrah-Yeswantpur Duronto five days a week, Kamakhya-Yeswantpur AC weekly and Kamakhya – Bengaluru premium weekly express. While welcoming the decision to reroute four trains, East Coast Railway Shramik Union president Ch. Gandhi wanted the other trains also to be brought to Visakhapatnam at the earliest. Many of the trains originating from Visakhapatnam junction have less than 24 coaches and they could be permanently augmented with additional coaches to meet the high demand for berths, especially during the long summer holidays. The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has already appointed an outsourced agency during February this year for establishment of Common User Domestic Air Cargo Terminal (CUDCT) at 24 airports, including Visakhapatnam, said Union Minister of Civil Aviation Pusapati Ashok Gajapathi Raju in the Lok Sabha in a written reply to a query raised by Visakhapatnam MP Kambhampati Haribabu. The Union Minister said that the international air cargo operations, at the proposed common user facility, are expected to be commissioned in six months after compilation of the Notice Inviting Tenders (NIT) process.
