Chennai: From October 1, train travel from Chennai to any southern TN destination is bound to be faster by 30 minutes to 1 hour. Southern Railway general manager Vashishtha Johri on Friday said a majority of trains from Chennai Egmore and Central would be speeded up as doubling of Chennai-Madurai section is nearing completion.
The first step was taken on Friday when officials announced that two pairs of trains, the Chennai-Rameswaram Express and Chennai-Jodhpur Express would be upgraded to superfast status, increasing the average speed to more than 55 kmph and bringing down the journey time by at least one hour each.
