Lack of facilities greets passengers at Kayalpatnam. With the absence of an extended platform, shelter, lights and shortage of drinking water, they are facing severe hardships, according to S.K. Salih of Sithan Street, Kayalpatnam.To add to their woes, the platform was low and many passengers found it very tough to board trains at this station, he said here on Wednesday.Despite representations to railway authorities, no effort has been made till now to develop basic infrastructure at Kayalpatnam station.To seek officials’ attention for the development of this station, he said the Indian Union Muslim League along with various political parties and organisations would stage a rail roko at Kayalpatnam on February 18.A.R. Badul Ashab of Solukkar Street said many passengers, especially the elderly, who frequent Chennai by the Chendur express, had been forced to move to Tiruchendur station to board the train.Since the Chendur express train was being scheduled to stop just...
for sixty seconds at Kayalpatnam, the passengers preferred to board at Tiruchendur, the venue of departure. Besides, Tirunelveli-Tiruchendur passenger train was also plying between these two destinations via Arumuganeri, Kurumbur, Nazareth, Srivaikuntam, Thathankulam, Seidunganallur and Palayamkottai daily, he said.Additional Divisional Railway Manager V. Ajith Kumar, when contacted, said works to raise and extend the platform and other facilities had been sanctioned and based on funds availability, the works would be taken up.
