Recycled water to be used to clean coaches, platforms and water gardens The Tirupati railway station is all set to get a water treatment plant at an estimated outlay of Rs.4 crore to recycle the used water.

quantity of water. “Recycling helps process the used water and convert it into reusable input for cleaning purposes,” said Additional Divisional Railway Manager (Guntakal) K.V. Subbarayudu. The plant is expected to be ready by March and the recycled water will be used to clean the coaches, platforms and for watering the gardens. Mr. Subbarayudu interacted with The Hindu during the inspection at the Renigunta railway junction on Sunday, when he listed out the various facilities coming to Tirupati. The Tiruchanur halt would be developed as a B-class railway station and made a terminating point for some express trains, to de-congest the existing station. Similarly, the area on the southern side has been developed to construct the sixth platform and also open an entrance for the benefit of the residents living south of the city. On the Bogie Components Manufacturing Unit proposed at Thottambedu near Srikalahasti, Mr. Subbarayudu said it would help meet the railways' demand for supply of small components. He later inspected the Railway Institute, railway hospital, booking office and other areas in the station. Additional Chief Medical Superintendent Dr. B. Surendra Naik, Assistant Divisional Engineer, Renigunta, P. Srinivas, traffic inspector (Renigunta) G. Jayanth Kumar and senior section engineer Madhava Rao accompanied him.
Recycling water plants have to be kept at all main stations which are watering stations to conserve water and clean coaches. Every city is facing water shortage and trains are cleaned occasionally outer surface.
