Master plan prepared for revamp remains a non-starter
Southern Railway is under fire for doing precious little to improve passenger amenities at the Ernakulam Town Railway Station.
Advertisements on the premises and platforms block the view of many important direction boards, including that of the ticket-booking counters. On whatever little space is left, there are huge white boards with contact numbers seeking more advertisements.
waiting rooms for men and women do not have sufficient number of chairs while some of the toilets and wash basins within are damaged.
Senior Railway officials said that inadequate and damaged passenger amenities at the Ernakulam Town and Junction stations were brought to the notice of Thiruvananthapuram Divisional Railway Manager Prakash Bhutani during his recent visit.
The president of the Ernakulam North (Town) Vikasana Samithi, K. Radhakrishnan, said that the samithi had held a series of protests and submitted memoranda to high-ranking officials, demanding better amenities at the station. “The road leading to the eastern entry is too narrow and crammed, owing to which brawls involving commuters and autorickshaw drivers are common. The congested entry leaves the ticket counter there under-utilised.”
The master plan prepared when O. Rajagopal was Minister of State for Railways to widen the road leading to the eastern entry had not been realised yet, he said. The work on an escalator on platform two was also pending for about a year, while the promise to install bio-toilets was hanging fire.
The platform was ill lit and did not have drinking water supply, Mr. Radhakrishnan said.
Seats and fans too fall short of demand at the platforms, while the electronic board displaying train timings and platform numbers is dysfunctional.
The president of one of the 13 residents’ associations which fall under SRM Road Residents Associations’ Aikyavedi, P.D. Ramesh Babu, said that a police aid post and parking area for vehicles must be readied at the eastern entry. Encroachments on the road must be removed.
A senior official of the commercial wing said that passenger amenities at the station would be improved within six months.

Ekm-Tripunithura Track-Doubling Completed By Express News Service - KOCHI Published: 30th April 2014 09:22 AM Last Updated: 30th April 2014 09:22 AM Email1 The Railways has achieved a major milestone on Tuesday by completing the doubling work of the track between Ernakulam and Tripunithura, making the journey towards Kottayam faster.
According to Railway officials, with the completion of the track doubling work between  the Ernakulam North railway station and the C Cabin (1.5 kms), the entire stretch between Shoranur and Tripunithura has become double-line.
The track-doubling work started two weeks ago, after remaining
stuck in red tape for over a decade. Departmental procedures, and other technical issues had resulted in the delay in taking up the work for so many years.
“Internal works, including track laying, take a lot of time. Such works cause signal disruption, and disruption of train movement. Hence, only one such work can take place in the state at a time. Most recently, trains had to be diverted for many days while work was going on at Palakkad station. This had caused a significant delay in completing the track-doubling work in that stretch,” officials of the construction wing at the Ernakulam railway station said.
Departmental delays, such as the approval of the design of tracks, also had led to several dilly-dallying of work during the last decade.
“According to Railway officials, a modern signal interlocking system has been incorporated in Ernakulam in order to speed up the movement of trains. The permanent speed-restriction of 15 kmph at Ernakulam Town station will be lifted within a week, allowing trains to take up to 65 kmph of speed. Now, two trains can be started at the same time from Ernakulam Town towards Kottayam and Alappuzha,” the officials said.
Though the Railways claim that it was successful in completing the work without cancelling any long-distance train, the passengers were left in the lurch for several days.
“Though the Railways made necessary arrangements by advertising in newspapers, it was not sufficient. More scientific methods should be adopted prior to such big works, and the new timings should be displayed on the boards of the stations, which is not done yet,” said Raju S, passenger.

No. Actually this doubling benefits trains departing ERN towards KTYM only. Trains going to ERN will continue to get held up if there is some movement from ERS to ERN side. There is no immediate solution too in sight. But as far as trains leaving ERN are concerned, they will have a dedicated track to move out.
