Mayiladuthurai : The Mayiladuthurai-Tharangambadi Rail Restoration Committee has appealed to Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal to include the Mayiladuthurai-Karaikal railway line project via Tirukkadaiyur, Tharangambadi and Thirunallar in the Railway Budget 2013-14.In a memorandum to Mr Bansal, a copy of which was made available to media here today, Committee convenor Arupathy P Kalyanam said the Mayiladuthurai-Tharangambadi railway line served the people residing in the tail-end of Cauvery delta for over 60 years from 1926 till it was closed in 1987.Considering the long-pending demand of the Cauvery delta people to restore the Mayiladuthurai-Tharangambadi line, the Railway Ministry ordered for a survey in 2005-06 with further extension of this line to Karaikal via Thirunallar to a total length of 47.3 km.The survey was completed in 2006-07 and the project cost was then estimated at Rs.114.57 crore, he added.
