The yard modification of Kharagpur and commissioning of New Electronic Interlocking System at Kharagpur Station of South Eastern Railway has been successfully completed with the reconnection of all signal gears with all block instruments at 18.15 hours. This is being so completed 1 hr 45 mints well ahead of target time i.e. 20.00 hrs today on 19th November, 2017.
Normal train services with the new signaling system have been resumed
at 18.45 hrs. First goods train passed on signal operated from new control panel. The successful completion of entire work has been possible ahead of scheduled time only because of efficient deployment of a band of dedicated work force, proper planning and untiring efforts of staff and officers.
With the modification of Kharagpur Yard and commissioning of Electronic Interlocking System at Kharagpur Station the following benefits to railway operations and to the passengers will be made available which are as follows:
• Enhancing the number of routes from 423 to 800 thereby increasing fluidity.
• Ease of reception of freight trains to Kharagpur Yard thereby reducing transit time.
• Quicker implementation of Accident support system by enabling direct dispatch of Accident Relief Medical train/Van and Crane.
• Better fluidity due to commissioning of auto signalling between Kharagpur–Jakpur-Kharagpur.
• Adding two Platforms at Kharagpur station thereby enhancing passenger train handling capacity.
• Enhanced passage between Kharagpur-Gokulpur thereby easing train operation on Kharagpur-Midnapur route.
• Faster movement from/towards Howrah due to connectivity of 3rd line with Kharagpur yard.
Shortly Passenger Services will resume and will pass through this new signaling system.
Railway Administration expresses sincere thanks to the commuters for extending patience and co-operation to complete this modernization work successfully before schedule.
