The track doubling work between Roha (Central Railway) and Veer (Konkan Railway) spanning 47km was completed on Monday. The work had commenced in October 2016.
The first train on the double tracked route, 02619 Lokmanya Tilak (T) - Mangaluru Central Special passed from Roha at 7.35pm on Monday, and in the other direction train No. 06346 Thiruvananthapuram Central - Lokmanya Tilak (T) Special reached Roha at 8.17pm on Monday, a press note by Konkan Railway said.
The total cost of this project is Rs 530 crore.The double tracking of route is expected to
reduce bottlenecks in this section, while also enhancing its line capacity. Baban Ghatge, deputy general manager, public relations, Konkan Railway, said that the double tracking of the line would “improve efficiency in train operation and throughput.”
The work of electrification of the route between Roha to Verna and Verna to Thokur (Mangalore) is also in the final stage of completion, Konkan Railway sources said, and is likely to be completed by December.
Konkan Railway had initially set March 2021 as the target for completion of the electrification project. However, the work got delayed owing to the Covid pandemic, sources said.
Sources said that the work, which started in 2017, was being executed by two reputed agencies from both ends of the route simultaneously with a view to ensuring speedy completion of the work.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake.
