The division handled originating traffic of 55.66 million tonnes and earned over Rs.6,456 crore through
the handling of major commodities like iron ore, coal, fertilizers, finished steel, POL and container traffic.
On the passenger front, the division carried over 35 million passengers during 2015-16 with earnings of Rs.469 crore.
Ms. Chandralekha Mukherjee said special trains were operated and coaches augmented during festival and summer rush. Special trains were operated for the Godavari Pushkarams last year and they were now being operated for the Krishna Pushkarams. She outlined the measures to improve passenger amenities in the Division like provision of mineral water to passengers at a nominal price at major railway stations, hi-speed Wi-fi facility and commissioning of food plaza – Rail Dhaba – at PF-1 and commissioning of integrated cleanliness contract for improvement of cleanliness at Visakhapatnam railway station.
