Instructions have also been issued to loco pilots to run the trains at a reduced speed of 40 kmph in case of heavy rainfall when visibility is limited
The 740-km long Konkan Railway route is all set for the Southwest monsoon. This year as the fight against the second wave of Covid-19 strengthens, Konkan Railway continues to be fully committed to the welfare of its passengers. All efforts are being made to maintain track and passenger amenities ensuring all safety-related guidelines, said Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd Deputy General Manager Girish R Karandikar,

the Monsoon timetable will come into effect from June 10 and will be continued till October 31. Passengers should check train status online during monsoon by visiting the website www.konkanrailway.com.
 All planned safety works on this route from Kolad to Thokur have been completed. Special attention has been given to catch water drain cleaning and inspection of cuttings. The large-scale geo-safety works executed along the railway line in the last few years have significantly reduced the incidences of falling of boulder and soil slip, thus ensuring safe running of trains. No major disruption to train services had occurred on account of boulder fall during monsoons in the last eight years, Karandikar said.
The Konkan Railway will conduct monsoon patrolling as per the prescribed guidelines to ensure safe running of trains. About 681 personnel will patrol the Konkan Railway route during the monsoon. Vulnerable locations will be patrolled round the clock and stationary watchmen will be deployed for 24 hours at critical locations. Speed restrictions will be imposed at vulnerable locations. BRN-mounted excavators have been kept ready at strategic points for quick movement in case of any emergency, he explained on the safety measures.

Self-recording rain gauges have been installed at nine stations – Mangaon, Chiplun, Ratnagiri, Vilwade, Kanakavali, Madgaon, Karwar, Bhatkal and Udupi – which will record the rainfall in the region and alert officials in case of increased rainfall.
Flood warning systems for bridges have been provided at 3 locations – Kali river (between Mangaon and Veer), Savitri river (between Veer and Sape Wamane), Vashishti river (between Chiplun and Kamathe) – and will alert officials in case of flash flood in the river when water flow reaches above danger Level.
Anemometers have been installed at four locations – Panvel viaduct (between Ratnagiri and Nivasar), Mandovi bridge (between Thivim and Karmali ), Zuari bridge ( Karmali and Verna) and Sharavati bridge (between Honnavar and Manki) to monitor the wind velocity, he added.

Margao: Part doubling of the Konkan Railway route, setting up of new stations, route electrification and other capacity enhancement works that are under way, will boost tourism in the Konkan region, deputy general manager (public relations) of the Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd, Baban Ghatge, said. Doubling of the 46km Veer Roha section is expected to be completed by the year-end, while electrification of the 740km-long Konkan Railway route is likely to be complete by 2020. Ghatge said construction of a fifth platform and an additional line was also in progress at the Margao railway station.The Konkan Railway’s capacity augmentation project comprises 141km doubling of critical portions, development of 11 new stations, addition of eight loop lines to increase line capacity and route electrification. While one loop line has already been commissioned at Murdeshwar, Karnataka, the rest are expected to be completed by this December or early months of 2020.Ghatge told TOI...

that capacity augmentation was aimed at reducing travel time and providing better amenities to passengers. “Development of new stations will lead to the division of block sections, thus reducing the time wasted on train crossings at stations,” he explained.Electrification of the entire route, which is estimated to cost Rs 1,400 crore, is being executed by two separate agencies from both ends of the route to ensure speedy completion. For this purpose, the route has been divided into two sections: One from Roha in Maharashtra to Verna, and the second from Verna to Thokur in Mangaluru.

MAO SVM and SVM QLM doubling works are going at great pace might get completed by Q2 or Q3 of 2021 if continues at same pace.
Regarding Majorda Vasco I had read somewhere on internet it was stuck due to some land acquisition around Vasco outers areas ie. as per a SWR official he did not mention objections at Majorda and Cansaulim.
There are some houses on the hills at VSG outers which needs to be destroyed so those people will have to be reallocated to other areas as compensation that

is the reason the official cited. Now regarding those houses and their residents most of the people residing in those houses are not Goan natives they are Non Goans. Now see the fun those who oppose doubling in the name of environment and heritage buildings are the same people who want to throw those outsiders Non Goans out of Goa.
Regarding the heritage buildings those are only located in between Majorda to Cansaulim around 5 kms and I don't think for laying new tracks those buildings will have to be demolished. These people are simply anti-establishment kind of.
Also who cares of the Portuguese heritage the same Portuguese who murdered thousands of Goans in the name of religion ?
I'm a native Goan and can clearly tell you the only obstruction for Majorda Vasco doubling is the reallocation of the people at VSG outers whose houses will be gone.

Is there enough space at Dabolim stn ? If yes, while Doubling SWR should seriously think of shifting MPT Main lines/Freight lines from Vasco stn. to Dabolim area. In that way additional Infrastructure for Passenger traffic can be utilised.
-
By the way, there is some land besides Vasco stn ( mostly south), near that school. Who owns that land any idea ?

Dabolim there is not much scope. I think they are planning on laying some stabling lines at Chandor Railway station. There was a BTPN terminal at VSG on the tracks branching towards MPT demolished now also a BCNA loading was there. The tracks branching towards MPT there is scope to develop two to three stabling lines.

- doubling project of Konkan Railway was initiated by the then RM Mr. Prabhu.
- However, there were confusing reports in past regarding the project
- It was reported that Mr. Prabhu wanted to go for full stretch doubling of KR at cost of 10000-15000 Cr. Rs.
- Later it was reported that doubling shall be done in 3 patches i.e. from Roha

& Mangalore (Manglore-Udupi)ends, in addition to small stretch in Goa sector.
- Finally work could start from Roha to Veer (47 kms) which is likely to be completed in a year or two. Work from southern end/ Goa sector has probably not started yet. It was reported that work from Veer to Chiplun (81 kms) shall also be taken up.
- With departure of Mr Prabhu from Rly Ministry, KR doubling is no longer a priority. However, electrification is going on briskly, in line with IR policy to electrify all BG routes in coming few years.

MARGAO: The Rs 1,400 crore electrification work of the 740-km Konkan railway route is expected to be complete by December 2020.Deputy general manager, public relations of Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd (KRCL), Baban Ghatge told TOI that the electrification work is under way from both ends of the route simultaneously. “The section has been divided in two parts - from Roha in Maharshtra to Verna in Goa and from Verna to Thokur in Mangaluru,” Ghatge said. He also said that the project started in September 2017, is in its final stages in many parts of the route. Sources claim that with diesel-run locomotives, time is wasted in engine fuelling and further leading to delays. “Electrification will save both, money and time, while trains will be able to ply at higher speeds, thereby reducing travel time,” sources said. The project also entails civil works, including modification of bridges, provision of gauge height at...

level crossings, provision of protective screens and mast foundation on bridge piers, etc. KRCL has raised most of the funds for the project on its own and while part of it from public funds.
