The ongoing gauge conversion of the 40-km odd Podanur - Pollachi section providing a shorter and easy link to Western Tamil Nadu with Southern Tamil Nadu is likely to be completed by January and the Commissioner of Rail Safety would inspect it sometime in February, said Vashishta Johri, Southern Railway General Manager, on Thursday.
He was talking to reporters at the Pollachi Junction during his visit to the town from Palakkad. Mr. Johri. accompanied by Naresh Lalwani, Divisional Railway Manager of Palakkad Division, Sudhakar Rao, Chief Administrative Officer, Prafulla Verma, Chief Engineer, Ajith Kumar, Chief Signal and Telecom Engineer, and Vijayakumar, Chief Electrical Engineer, inspected the recently completed Palakkad - Pollachi section.
GM also visited the en route railway stations, Meenakshipuram and Subbegoundenpudur, and took stock of the passenger amenities.
Mr. Johri said that majority of the gauge conversion work on the Podanur - Pollachi section was getting delayed only because of the difficulties in eliminating the rocky terrain for six km between Kinathukkadavu and Mayileripalayam.
He said that the works would be completed by January and the report would be sent to enable the inspection by Commissioner of Rail Safety in February.
Mr. Johri also promised to take steps to bring in Passenger Reservation System counter facility at the Pollachi Junction.

GM visit/ inspection would have improved speed of track laying/ ballast filling ... Can really expect finishing of this section soon if not by January, by Feb or Mar 2017 ... Kinathukadavu - Pothanur Ballast filling and Tamping of about 20 Kms would require roughly two months (guess) ...
