It is highly disappointing that even a month after the CRS inspection, no news on inauguration has come yet. Also many existing passengers from PGT were cancelled on the PGT-POY route. Dont know why PGT, SA and also MDU division dont come together and start a few trains.
There seems to be no public pressure too from TN or KL, since the bus services are good, people dont feel any extreme hardships, I guess.

one of the reason for late may be due to technical issue and not strong political pressure to make work fast. As it falls with dead lock region with three divisions suffering of POY is more .

Did CRS ask for any modification? Or some more work yet to be completed? Any news about that.

The incident took place at Wallayar which is the border of Tamilnadu and Kerala. Now also trains were permitted to run with speed restrictions.
Lot of elephants were killed by trains in this section.

Thanks a lot Jayaraj for drawing our attention to this. I am sure that there must be a large number of UNSUNG HEROES in IR who have laid down their lives either during laying of railway lines, piloting trains or other work-related activities like saving passengers' lives at stake. It is worthwhile that at least a few like Mr. Wilson have been remembered for their sacrifice.
