South Western Railway has undertaken Track Renewal and Engineering Works spreading over the section between Ghatprabha and Chikodi sections. With these track renovation and engineering works, the mobility of trains on this section has been increased considerably from 10.08.2020. This has been done by reducing permanent speed restriction, expeditious removal of temporary speed restrictions to maintain long restriction free stretches to the extent possible.
Speed trial of both UP & DN line at 120-124 kmph (10% more than proposed sectional speed of 110 Kmph) was done by SWR on 05/08/2020. This could be done based on the authorization given by (CRS) Commissioner of Railway Safety, speed trial test results and detailed window trailing inspection of the section.
