The project jointly executed by Guntakal and RVNL eases train movements at this major junction handling four direction movements – towards Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Secunderabad/Hyderabad
The largest Electronic Interlocking (EI) system o­n South Central Railway has been commissioned at Gooty yard o­n 12th July 2020 (ahead of its targeted schedule), along with major yard remodelling. The signalling installation provided at the junction station is the most advanced and modern signalling system, which enables hassle free handling of trains at Gooty Railway Station in Guntakal Division of Andhra Pradesh.
The interlocking mechanism provided
at Gooty Station yard is also the fourth largest Inter-Locking system installed over the South Central Railway. Other major yards o­n SCR include the yards at Secunderabad, Vijayawada and Kazipet Railway stations. But these are not Electronic Inter-locking signalling system. Now, the Gooty Railway Station yard after remodelling and strengthening of signalling system has become the largest Electronic Interlocking station o­n SCR with 343 Routes.
The project has been jointly executed by the Guntakal Division and Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd (RVNL) and completed in a record time well before its schedule. All the safety precautions were observed by the staff while executing the work.
The most distinguishing feature of this installation is that there will not be any un-signalled / manual movement of Trains leading to safer train operations. A total of 14 hand operated points were converted into motor operated points. Also earlier the train movements at Gooty station were controlled by operating the signals from two end Cabins and o­ne central Deputy Station Superintendent. It is now replaced by Electronic Interlocking central operator with single control resulting in significant decrease in physical interference in operation of signals besides reducing the Manpower requirement.
Further, before the execution of this work, o­nly 4 lines at Gooty station yard were provided with the facility of direct reception and dispatch of trains. Due to remodelling of the Gooty yard, now the yard has been upgraded to handle the trains from 11 lines with direct reception and despatch. In addition, a new line has been constructed between Gooty Station and Gooty “A” cabin as a part of execution of this work, while an additional traffic gate has been closed to strengthen safety.
Gooty is a major junction station in Guntakal Division and handles trains from four important directions – Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Secunderabad/Hyderabad. With the regular increase of traffic overtime, the sections around the station yard have become highly saturated. The completion of this advanced and modern Electronic Inter-locking signalling system and yard remodelling will ease the congestion o­n this important junction station and facilitates running of more number of Passenger and Freight trains.
Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager has complimented the Officers and Staff of Guntakal division, including RVNL, who were involved in the execution and early completion of this mega Infrastructure facility. Further he opined that, the completion of this important work helps railways in smooth handling of trains, while benefitting the rail customers located in this jurisdiction (including the Cement customers) in speedy transportation of their consignments.
