The Commissioner of Railway Safety, Southern Circle, Bengaluru, has accorded statutory clearance for operation of electric loco-hauled freight and passenger trains in the newly electrified Karur-Salem broad gauge section.
Consequent to the authorisation from the Commissioner of Railway Safety, Southern Railway officials propose to operate a goods train hauled by a electric loco in the 85-km electrified stretch soon.
The Commissioner of Railway Safety carried out detailed inspection of the electrified stretch on December 27 and 28 accompanied by top Southern Railway officials and those from the Central Organisation for Railway Electrification (CORE),
which executed the overhead electrification project.
As part of his two-day inspection, the Commissioner of Railway Safety conducted a high-speed trial run from Karur to Salem on board a special train hauled by an electric locomotive.
Senior railway officials toldThe Hinduon Tuesday that the Commissioner of Railway Safety gave mandatory clearance on December 31 for operation of electric-loc- hauled passenger and freight trains on the Karur-Salem energised section. Clearance has been given to operate trains at a maximum speed of 100 km/hour in the electrified section.
To begin with, a freight train hauled by an electric locomotive will be operated in a day or two in the section, said an official.
Passenger trains will be operated in due course by making neccessary arrangements for electric locomotives.
CORE completed the overhead electrification project in a span of around eight months on the Karur-Salem stretch. It is the third major section to be electrified in this part of the region by CORE, which earlier electrified the 140-km Erode-Karur-Tiruchi and the 73-km Karur-Dindigul broad gauge sections.
The entire cost for the three projects is over Rs. 300 crore.
With the Namakkal traction sub-station constructed by CORE as part of the overhead electrification project yet to be commissioned, power supply is planned to be drawn from the traction sub station at Velliyanai.
Officials hope that the traction sub-station works will get over by this month-end. The Karur-Salem stretch covers important stations such as Mohanur, Rasipuram and Namakkal en-route.
The full potential of the electrified stretch will be realised once the Namakkal traction sub-station is commissioned.
Officials say huge quantities of coal movement is taking place from the Karaikal Port to Mettur near Salem.
