Agree Agree
Tender for the construction of 2nd pitline at VSG was floated in January 2019 and expected completion time was 10 months, work was started somewhere in mid 2019 and now in December 2023 SWR RTI says VSG MAS express will be extended back to VSG once 2nd pitline is commissioned.
Almost four years still no signs of the pitline commissioning any time soon. This is the level of neglect VSG is facing under SWR. Looks like SWR don't want to commission the pitline anytime soon so they can reject new proposals citing maintenance constraints and run more freight trains.
1. SS of the tender document.
Pic 2. SWR latest RTI.
Pic 3. Shot on 15/03/2023 showing status of 2nd pitline and still it is the same (observed by me on 15/11/2023). The sidewalk on one side of the pitline is yet to be constructed also don't know if other works related to pitline are still pending or not.

Coal is imported from foreign countries via MPT and transported to steel plants in Karnataka.
In return some steel rolls, some ore for export are brought by these wagons.
