LUCKNOW: The congestion problem on Varanasi-Lucknow route is likely to end by October end, said member, traffic, Railway Board, Mohammad Jamshed. Talking to TOI, he said that the route was much beyond its saturation capacity which was leading to delays and trains getting stranded on the outer signal. "Against the capacity to run 55-60 trains, this route is handling the traffic of more than 90 trains. Add to it an abundance of goods trains and special trains and the burden is staggering. But, it should all end when the doubling of Uthrathiya-Jafrabad section is completed and the entire Varanasi-Lucknow route is doubled up by October end.

told TOI. "Punctuality is certainly an issue and we are working on improvement," said Jamshed, who was in Lucknow on Thursday to attend the valedictory function of the passing out ceremony at Indian Railways Training Institute. He also reviewed safety measures and other amenities at Lucknow stations. He was accompanied by Northern Railway chief commercial manager Devesh Mishra. The length of Uthrathiya-Varanasi route is 271 Km long, of which only 212 Km of route track has been doubled up while the work of rest Chandrauli-Adheenpur route length of 58.66 km is under way. The construction of second route track on these lines will reduce the traffic on outer sections of Charbagh railway station. As of now, trains have to wait for the route clearance. It eventually adversely affects the traffic on the Lucknow-Kanpur-Delhi and Lucknow-Bareilly-Delhi routes as well. At present, around 166 mail and express and 22 passenger trains are running on this route. Besides, there are around 18 freight trains. However, Jamshed has said that after the inauguration of freight corridor, the load of goods trains would also be reduced which would give relief to passengers in terms of punctuality.
