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.
