MARGAO: Residents of Chandor are aghast on realising that the railway station in the village is proposed to be made into a depot with ten railway tracks, thus making it a major hub for railways.
The developments have come as a shock for villagers as all along they were given to understand that only double tracking was to be done.
It may be recalled that Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd (RVNL) has been entrusted with the task of double tracking the railway line on the South Western Railway Line and acquisition of 10.5 hectares
Should be, otherwise no use. Madgaon needs a proper Railway Yard with Pitlines and a Freight Yard. And, what best place to construct it then at a remote location like this.
This part is with SWR. So the freight yard will be of SWR. Also if they do construct pitlines it will be of SWR. I doubt if they will.
If pitlines are to be constructed it would be at VSG. No idea if space is there at VSG for any pitline.
If not, then hoping something happens here too.
Yup, right. No pitlines. But, a Freight Yard is a must.
As reported many times, why villagers of Goa region are always skeptical about augmentation of Rly facilities?? Where as residents of normally demand for and welcome railway related facilities coming to their region?
