Time has come for VSKP to say Good bye to ECoR ..
Announcement on Vizag zone after Union Budget, says Sujana
: Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has requested the Railway Ministry to take an expeditious decision on the creation of Visakhapatnam railway zone.
The Chief Minister, accompanied by Union Minister Y.S. Chowdary and P. Ashok Gajapati Raju, called on Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu
in New Delhi on Tuesday. Mr. Naidu submitted representation seeking speedy completion of pending works in the State, including connectivity between Amaravati and major cities in the south through high-speed trains.
He wanted the Railway Ministry to make sufficient budgetary allocations for the completion of the Kakinada-Pithapuram, Nadikudi-Srikalahasti and Guntukal-Srikalahasti lines besides requesting the Centre to hand over maintenance of the old bridge at Rajahmundry to the State Government. The State emphasised the need for ensuring that the allocations were made in the upcoming railway budget.
Mr. Chowdary said the Centre had given in-principle clearance for the railway zone in Visakhapatnam and the zone would be announced after the Union Cabinet formally gives its nod.
Development package
Creation of the special railway zone was part of the special development package assured to the State post bifurcation.
The State had also sought the Ministry to take up works on feeder line connecting the new capital Amaravati with Guntur and Vijayawada. The Ministry was requested to consider the proposal for laying third line between Visakhapatnam and Chennai besides examining the proposals for development of infrastructure at important railway stations through joint ventures.
The Railway Minister, he said, positively responded to the representation and promised that surveys would be undertaken on the proposals submitted by the State Government as well as the MPs from the State.

how come it is catering both the cities
quota for VSKP had been decreased by ECoR, infact BBS has more quota than VSKP, for its extended trains - isn't true?
new coaches allotted to WAT are replaced by old coaches within weeks of their inauguration - isn't true?
new trains proposed for VSKP are rejected by ECoR stating irrelevant reasons and the same
trains are lobbied to start from BBS - isn't true
trains running from BBS are given proper/effecient TT, while that of VSKP are given TT full of slacks or less TAT - isn't true?

Coach Composition BBS to Vskp SLR GS GS GS A1 B1 B2 AB1 S10 S9....S2 S1 GS GS GS SLR. total 22 coach. The train halts at renigunta on 90% runs for more then 60mins till sapthagiri express leaves to Tirupati. So people going to Tirumala can get down and take a taxi directly from Renigunta or proceed to Tirupati bus stand enroute to tirumala.

This Train takes 110 minutes to cover the distance of around 40 km between NELLORE and GUDUR and again it covers 94 km between GUDUR and TIRUPATI in 145 minutes which results in wastage of time of pilgrims. The reason for the delayed TT may be non availability of stabling lines at TPTY station .In that case the train may be extended up to CHITTUR (CTO) and it can leave GDR at 6.00 and TPTY at 8.00 to reach CTO at 9.00.In the return direction the train may leave CTO at 11.00 and reach TPTY at 12.40 and can pick up its original path.
