VISAKHAPATNAM: Chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu said the railway zone will have Visakhapatnam as its headquarters.
Addressing a gathering at the launch of 10 railway projects remotely from Vijayawada on Thursday, the chief minister urged Union railway minister Suresh Prabhu and Union urban development minister M Venkaiah Naidu to speed up the process of separate railway zone with Visakhapatnam as its headquarters.
Earlier, railway minister Suresh Prabhu said that a new era of rail development had dawned on Andhra Pradesh with the foundation of wagon POH workshop at Vadlapudi and augmentation of diesel
loco shed at Visakhapatnam.
Waltair divisional railway manager Mukul Saran Mathur said lot of rail infrastructure development activities were being undertaken by the railways, which is the largest transporter of goods and traffic. Wagon POH workshop at Vadlapudi will reduce wagon turnaround and help the railways to generate additional revenue. Meanwhile, augmentation of the infrastructure facilities of the largest Diesel Loco Shed in Indian Railways at Visakhapatnam will enhance the holding capacity of HHP locos to 100. At present, the shed holds a fleet of 285 locomotives and 79 HHP locos.
Gajuwaka MLA Palla Srinivasa Rao said with Visakhapatnam being the major hub for freight transport, the wagon POH workshop will definitely increase the performance as well as revenue. Developing the infrastructure of Diesel Loco Shed, on the other hand, would improve the performance of the division.
During the inaugural function at Vijayawada, the new Weekly Hamsafar train between Vijayawada and Howrah was also flagged off. Free WiFi facility for rail users under phase-II was also commissioned at Vizianagaram railway station on Thursday.

Telengana ( 17 Lok shabha MP ) and Andhra Pradesh 25 MP have been implemented separate Railway Zone for both the States by dividing SCR under state reorganization committee.
So the Central Government has to be taken a policy decision ,such that every state ( more than 17 MP ) has a separate Railway Zone for their state Railway infrastructure development.
Smaller state / Union Territory have to be in the combined Railway Zone.
The entire Railway Zone has to be named with the concerned State/ UT .
Example...SR have to be reclassified as Tamilnadu & Puducherry Railway Zone in Chennai and Kerala Railway Zone at Thiruvananthapuram.
SWR reclassified as Karnataka Railway Zone.
SCR reclassified as Telengana Railway Zone at Secandrabad and Andhra Pradesh Railway Zone at Visakhapatnam.
Central Railway reclassified as Maharashtra Railway Zone .WR reclassified as Gujarat Railway Zone.
Similarly all other existing Railway Zones have to be reclassified as their jurisdictions state / UT.
Reclassified Railway Zone with State names with state jurisdictions railway lines are totally free from directional and confused Zones.
The Railway development additional infrastructure works can be carried out with full cooperation of the state government. Presently Karnataka state comes under 5 different Zones viz SWR,SR,SCR,CR and Konkan.Under state name reorganization of Railway zone comes under Karnataka Railway Zone and its development works may be carried out vastly with full State government involvement.
So requested our Central government / Nidhi Ayok to reorganize the entire Railway Zones with State / UT names.
