Panaji: Union railway minister Suresh Prabhu on Friday announced the doubling of the Konkan Railway track and its electrification between Roha in Maharashtra to Mangaluru in Karnataka via Goa.
He also announced that "a first-of-its-kind in India" double-decker AC Shatabdi train from Goa to Mumbai will commence shortly, while a Delhi-Goa Rajdhani Express and a new train for tourists during the tourism season will also be introduced. He promised to start soon a train between Goa and Tirupati.
Speaking at the launch of the establishment of the George Fernandes Institute of Tunnel Technology

at Margao, Prabhu said the double-tracking and electrification project will cost 10,500 crore, cover 750 km, and is
expected to be completed in five years. The foundation stone will be laid on November 8 at Roha.
"I have already signed the files some days ago. The project has already been approved," said Prabhu, adding that the doubling of the track will generate more revenue, while the electrification will save operation costs.
On the new train for tourists, he said, "We have already started a train for tourists and if required more trains can be added during the season so that more
tourists can come to Goa and help Goa become economically better."
Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd's CMD Bhanu Prakash Tayal said the corporation will approach the World Bank and JICA for funding of the double-tracking-and-electrification project and will go in for an IPO in the next two years to generate funds for expansion projects. He said this is because he didn't want the corporation to take loans.
The double-tracking will be done in three phases—Roha to Ratnagiri in the first phase, Mangaluru to Udupi in the second phase, and the third phase will complete the rest of the stretch which will include Majorda to Verna, Canacona to Balli and Margao to Sarzora.
Chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar, speaking at the function, stressed on the need for the double-tracking—"so commuters in Goa can travel between Canacona and Pernem within an hour"—and the express trains to Delhi and Mumbai. "Anything given to Goa will never go into loss," said the CM.
During the function, Rajya Sabha MP Shantaram Naik demanded that the railway minister start a Goa-Tirupati train.

शताब्दी एक्स्प्रेसला कोणण रेल्वे मार्गावर अपघात झाला आहे. खासगी जेसीबीची रेल्वेच्या इंजिनासह चार डब्यांना धडक बसल्याने हा अपघात झाला. कणकवलीजवळच्या बोर्डवे गावाजवळ हा अपघात झाला. यात काही प्रवासी किरकोळ जखमी झालेत.
अपघातानंतर शताब्दी एक्स्प्रेसला कणकवली स्थानकात आणण्यात आलं आहे. किरकोळ जखमी झालेल्या प्रवाशांवर तिथे उपाचर करण्यात आले. पण अपघातामुळे कोकण रेल्वे मार्गावरील वाहतूक विस्कळीत झाली आहे. पण ती कधी सुरळीत होईल, हे स्पष्ट करण्यात आलेलं नाही.

Margao: Union minister for railways Suresh Prabhu, has assured the Konkan railway corporation limited (KRCL) of clearing its proposal for electrification of the railway track expeditiously, even as he directed the latter to prepare a long term development plan and submit it to the railway ministry.
Prabhu gave this assurance while reviewing the working of the Konkan railway at Mumbai, his first visit to the metropolis after taking charge of the railways portfolio.
A press note by KRCL said that the chairman and managing director of the corporation, Bhanu Prakash Tayal,

briefed Prabhu about all aspects of the working of the Konkan railway.
Tayal, while interacting with the press in Margao last year, had disclosed that Konkan railway was mulling undertaking its ambitious plan of electrification of its route from Mangalore to Roha through BOT (build-operate-transfer) model. The proposed project was roughly estimated to cost 600cr. Once the Konkan railway switches over to electric mode of train movements from the current diesel-based operations, it is expected to translate into a savings of 100 cr per year for the KRC. Further during the meeting, Konkan railway was directed by the Union railway minister to improve availability of passenger amenities on its stations as an immediate measure, it was informed. With safety of the passengers becoming a matter of concern following the recent spate of accidents along the Konkan railway route, discussions also centred around that aspect. Tayal, during the meeting, outlined an action plan which has already been put into action to prevent accidents in future, KRCL's press note said. "With the railway minister taking a keen interest in the working of Konkan railway, it is set to see better days," the press note by B S Ghatge, senior manager, public relations, KRCL, Margao, added. Konkan railway was directed by the Union railway minister Suresh Prabhu to improve availability of passenger amenities at its stations as an immediate measure.
