Chennai: Southern Railway has speeded up 18 trains with effect from August 15 with the running time of Nagercoil-Mumbai and Tambaram-Tirunelveli Antyodaya Express decreasing by 60 minutes. The Coimbatore-Chennai Central Shatabdi Express has been speeded up by 15 minutes while the train in the return direction has been speeded up by five minutes. The Chennai-Madurai Pandian express has become faster by 10 minutes. In the return direction, it has been speeded up by five minutes.
These were the highlights of the new railway time-table which was released by Southern Railway on Monday evening. The Tambaram-Sengottai Antyodaya Express has been announced which will leave at 7am and reach Sengottai at 10:30pm and in the return direction it would leave at 6am and reach
Tambaram at 10:15pm. The date of introduction would be notified later.
The Train Nos. 15630/15629 Guwahati – Chennai Egmore - Guwahati Weekly Express and Train numbers 15930/15929 Dibrugarh-Chennai Egmore-Dibrugarh Weekly express have been extended to Tambaram. This has been done to decongest Egmore station.
In the suburban train time-table, 13 trains will start earlier than its usual. For instance, the Tiruttani-Moore Market Complex (MMC) train at 1:15pm will leave 35 minutes earlier. The Arakkonam-MMC service at 9:25pm will leave 15 minutes earlier. The Chennai Beach-Tiruvallur service at 5:35am and Chennai Beach-Velachery service at 4:40am will leave 10 minutes earlier.
Seven suburban trains will have a late start; for instance the Chengalpet-Beach service at 11:43am will leave late by 15 minutes, while the Kancheepuram-Beach service at 10:56am will leave 14 minutes later.
