Sep 02 2016 (07:20)   Direct EMU services from Avadi to Tambaram needed

Before the broad gauge conversion on the suburban sector from Chennai Beach to Tambaram, Southern Railway operated an electric multiple unit (EMU) service from Avadi to Tambaram and Tambaram–Avadi. This EMU, which departed from the Avadi Railway station at 6.35 a.m. every day, was useful to engineering college students, railway officials and people working in IT sectors in Velachery. They used to get down at Chennai beach Railway stations and then board the Velachery EMU.
Following the conversion from metre guage to broad gauge line, the aforementioned services ceased, but till date, these services have not been restored.
to lack of sufficient platforms at Chennai Central Suburban Railways stations, all EMU trains halt at Vyvsarpadi Jiva station and Basin Bridge Junction stations. It takes nearly 15 minutes to get the signal clearance. Those who are proceeding towards Tambaram area, after disembarking at the Chennai Central Railway stations, rush towards the Park railway station to catch the Tambaram EMU and Velachery EMU and reach their destination.
It will help the public if a few trains are diverted towards Tambaram.
