Nov 05 (19:14)   दो नए प्लेटफार्म ले रहे आकार, बदल जाएगा प्रतापगढ़ रेलवे जंक्शन का स्वरूप

प्रयागराज, जेएनएन। प्रतापगढ़ में रेलवे जंक्शन पर दो नए प्लेटफार्म तेजी से आकार ले रहे हैं। इनके बनते ही जंक्शन नए स्वरूप में निखर आएगा। दोनों  नीव बनाने के बाद उसमें मिट्टी भरने व समतल करने का कार्य दिन-रात हो रहा है। अब तक प्रतापगढ़ जंक्शन पर तीन प्लेटफार्म हैं। इसमें पहला शहर साइड में है और दूसरा, तीसरा सहोदरपुर की ओर है। इस जंक्शन से अब तक इन्हीं तीन से काम चल जाता था, लेकिन रेल लाइन के दोहरीकरण के बाद यह कम नजर आएंगे। जंघई से गौरीगंज तक दोहरीकरण कार्य अंतिम चरण में है। ऐसे में प्रतापगढ़ के स्टेशनों पर प्लेटफार्म बढ़ाए जा रहे हैं। मुख्य जंक्शन पर प्लेटफार्म नंबर चार व पांच बन रहा है। कोरोना काल में बजट रुक गया था। मजदूर भी डरकर घर चले गए थे। अब फिर लौटे हैं। कार्य में तेजी आई है।

का है लक्ष्य
कार्यदायी संस्था का प्रयास है कि अधिक मजदूर लगाकर कार्य को मार्च तक पूरा कर लिया जाए। सहायक अभियंता निर्माण राकेश कुमार का कहना है कि प्रोजेक्ट बड़ा है, समय और लग सकता है।
पुराने टेंडर पर ही कायाकल्प
रेलवे ने अपने पुराने टेंडर पर ही जंक्शन के कायाकल्प को रफ्तार दी है। ठेकेदार के निधन के बाद संभावना थी कि टेंडर फिर से होगा, पर ऐसा विभाग ने नहीं किया। ठेकेदार दूसरा आ गया, पर एजेंसी वही रही। उसी पर काम हो रहा है।

आगरा, जेएनएन। राजस्थान में शुरू हुए गुर्जर आंदोलन की आग में रेल से लेकर सड़क तक यातायात झुलस गया है। आधा दर्जन ट्रेनों का मार्ग बदला गया। बसों का संचालन भी केवल भरतपुर तक किया गया है। यातायात ठप होने के कारण यात्रियों को परेशानी झेलनी पड़ी। राजस्थान में आरक्षण की मांग को लेकर गुर्जर समुदाय के लोग पटरी पर पहुंच गए हैं। इस कारण दिल्ली- कोटा रेल मार्ग पर रेल संचालन ठप हो गया है। अप रूट की निजामुद्दीन- विशाखापत्तनम एक्सप्रेस और डाउन रूट की जनशताब्दी रद रही। नंदादेवी एक्सप्रेस, राजधानी, अगस्त क्रांति एक्सप्रेस, पश्चिम एक्सप्रेस, इंदौर इंटरसिटी, मेवाड़ एक्सप्रेस का संचालन आगरा की तरफ से किया गया।
करीब 35 यात्रियों ने आरक्षण रद कराए। रेलवे को 45 हजार राजस्व वापस करना

पड़ा। ट्रेन संचालन की जानकारी करने को यात्री पूछताछ केंद्र पर जुटे रहे। ट्रेन रद होने के कारण यात्री आक्रोशित हो रहे थे और आंदोलन को कोस रहे थे। यात्रियों की सुरक्षा के मद्देनजर जीआरपी और आरपीएफ ने भी सतर्कता बढ़ा दी और जवान लगातार गश्त करते रहे। आंदोलन के कारण सड़क यातायात भी प्रभावित हुआ। बसों का संचालन केवल भरतपुर तक किया गया। जयपुर तक बस न जाने के करण यात्री परेशान रहे। मथुरा से जयपुर प्रतिदिन करीब एक दर्जन बस चलाई जा रही है। आंदोलन के कारण रोडवेज को करीब सवा लाख का चूना लगा। रेलवे और रोडवेज के अधिकारी भी आंदोलन की जानकारी लेने में जुटे रहे। आरपीएफ प्रभारी सीबी प्रसाद ने बताया कि स्टेशन पर सतर्कता बढ़ा दी गई है। एसएस संतोष अग्रवाल ने बताया कि बसों का संचालन केवल भरतपुर तक किया जा रहा है। जयपुर तक बस नहीं चल सकी हैं।

Aug 09 (14:40)   Now Longest running train of India Vivek Express will run Daily

15906/15906 Dibrugarh-Kanniyakumari Vivek Express will run Daily instead of Weekly from next time table. This is the longest running train of India, which covers a massive distance of 4219 km in 83 Hours. To travel end to end, one has to spend 3 and half day on this train. Now Railway board approves the increase in frequency of this train. Currently 15906/15906 Dibrugarh-Kanniyakumari Vivek Express is running only 1 day in a week. But from New Time Table, this train will run on all 7 days in a week means it will run on Daily basis. Currently this is the longest running train in India but after new time table it will becomes longest running Daily Train of India.

railway also goes to divert the route of this train. From the New Time Table, this train will run via Dankuni and Kharagpur instead of Durgapur-Asansol-Adra-Bankura-Midnapore-Hijli. The train will have a commercial stoppage at Naharkatiya, Simalguri over Northeast Frontier Railways and Bardhman, Dankuni and Kharagpur over Eastern Railways. This train will be further speeded up which means it takes less time to cover the distance from Dibrugarh to Kanniyakumari.

Panskura Khana New line ban gayi toh vaha se divert kiya ja sakta hai, double hojaye toh chances aur jyada honge kyuki route chota hojayega aur reversal bhi nahi hoga.

Aug 04 (22:31)   Bridging the Palk Strait Again: The New Pamban Bridge to Rameswaram

Whenever the old makes way for the new, there can be a sense of missing something that has been around for years. A sense of looking forward to something that is an improvement over the old. And a myriad of senses in between.
This is not the first time; neither will this be the last time that such things are happening in the world.
In what is the latest buzz around the Southern Railways, it is the Pamban Bridge that evokes such strong sentiments. Commissioned in 1915, this bridge over the sea

connects the mainland town of Mandapam with the island town of Rameswaram.
The unique feature of the bridge is a span right in the middle that can lift up to give way to the ships passing underneath. Of course, all these movements are subject to traffic protocol between the railway and the maritime authorities.
This bridge has had an eventful life – major damage during the 1964 cyclonic storm and a barge-induced damage in 2013 were the major disruptors for rail traffic.
The railway authorities have deemed this bridge inadequate for the growing rail traffic in this area and have started construction on a new bridge.
The New Pamban Bridge
The new bridge is being constructed by Rail Vikas Nigam Limited, a project execution special purpose vehicle (SPV) of Indian Railways.
Key Statistics of the New Pamban Bridge
Was this move due to some safety issues? “No, there were no safety issues. It is just that the bridge was inadequate to serve the increasing rail demands of the region. Besides, larger vessels also had to pass through under the bridge,” explains an officer who wished to remain anonymous.
“The new bridge enhances capacity as it will be built for holding two running railway lines,” he informs. The bridge is being built with latest technology and takes care of all concerns from all quarters, RailPost understands.
Biofouling, or biological fouling of the bridge pillars was a common problem, where marine organisms like barnacles and algae attach to the surface and erode the metal. “This is a major problem not only with Pamban but with many bridges,” says Krupa Ratnam, a marine biologist.
“There have been many inspections and so many measures have been taken to mitigate the problems of biofouling,” Ratnam adds. So, what is the way out? “These days, we have technologically advanced materials that can be used for surface coating the bridge pillars and areas exposed to water,” he informs, adding, “these are far more superior and have addressed the issues to a major extent.”
‘This bridge will have 100 spans of 25 metres each. The central span of 75-m length is the one that helps ships cross the bridge, ” informs the railway official. So, what about large ships going through? He answers, “the entire bridge is being built higher by about 3 metres from the existing bridge. The central span of 75 metres has a lifting mechanism that allows larger vessels than those going through at present.” This is certainly bound to help the maritime industry.
About the safety aspects given the cyclonic storms that form in the Bay of Bengal, the official says that the entire bridge is designed to the highest safety standards now in practice. Latest technology like reinforcement with stainless steel for the bridge pillars, use of latest composite materials providing high-performance coating to prevent biofouling, etc. are some of the measures being taken to make it very safe,” signs off the official.
As the old gives way to the new, and the Scherzer Span gives way to the lifting barrier, it is only fitting that Rameswaram has also recently got a direct connection to Ayodhya (Faizabad).

Pamban bridge height is not much unlike the bridges shown in the video where the gap is bigger between water body and bridge.
