Ekm-Tripunithura Track-Doubling Completed By Express News Service - KOCHI Published: 30th April 2014 09:22 AM Last Updated: 30th April 2014 09:22 AM Email1 The Railways has achieved a major milestone on Tuesday by completing the doubling work of the track between Ernakulam and Tripunithura, making the journey towards Kottayam faster.
According to Railway officials, with the completion of the track doubling work between  the Ernakulam North railway station and the C Cabin (1.5 kms), the entire stretch between Shoranur and Tripunithura has become double-line.
The track-doubling work started two weeks ago, after remaining
stuck in red tape for over a decade. Departmental procedures, and other technical issues had resulted in the delay in taking up the work for so many years.
“Internal works, including track laying, take a lot of time. Such works cause signal disruption, and disruption of train movement. Hence, only one such work can take place in the state at a time. Most recently, trains had to be diverted for many days while work was going on at Palakkad station. This had caused a significant delay in completing the track-doubling work in that stretch,” officials of the construction wing at the Ernakulam railway station said.
Departmental delays, such as the approval of the design of tracks, also had led to several dilly-dallying of work during the last decade.
“According to Railway officials, a modern signal interlocking system has been incorporated in Ernakulam in order to speed up the movement of trains. The permanent speed-restriction of 15 kmph at Ernakulam Town station will be lifted within a week, allowing trains to take up to 65 kmph of speed. Now, two trains can be started at the same time from Ernakulam Town towards Kottayam and Alappuzha,” the officials said.
Though the Railways claim that it was successful in completing the work without cancelling any long-distance train, the passengers were left in the lurch for several days.
“Though the Railways made necessary arrangements by advertising in newspapers, it was not sufficient. More scientific methods should be adopted prior to such big works, and the new timings should be displayed on the boards of the stations, which is not done yet,” said Raju S, passenger.

No. Actually this doubling benefits trains departing ERN towards KTYM only. Trains going to ERN will continue to get held up if there is some movement from ERS to ERN side. There is no immediate solution too in sight. But as far as trains leaving ERN are concerned, they will have a dedicated track to move out.
