Doubled tracks in two sectors to help reduce delays for crossing
A rake comprising an electric engine and three coaches was run at 120 km per hour test speed on the second track in the Piravom Road-Kuruppanthara and Thiruvalla-Chengannur sectors, even as Sudarshan Naik, the Benagaluru-based Commissioner for Railway Safety (CRS), inspected the two corridors on Thursday.
The design speed of the newly-laid tracks for normal train operations is 110 km per hour. The second track will be opened for service based on the report of the CRS.
