The South Central Railway (SCR), which has set a scorching pace in electrification of railway lines in the last couple of years, intends to continue the work with an aim to completely electrify the entire track of about 6,000 km within the next three years. General Manager Vinod Kumar Yadav said 600 km was electrified last year and the same length would likely be completed before the end of this financial year. “We have done about 3,000 km of electrification so far. This year, we have finalised technical bids for about 800 km,... more...
while financial bids will be called for another 1,100 km. Survey work for the remaining 1,100 km is on. We aim to complete the last section by March 2022 at the current pace which itself will be a record,” he explained in an exclusive interaction. It is not just the Railway Board delegating more powers to the GMs that has bolstered his drive towards achieving greater efficiency, but the newly-introduced guidelines of not calling for any work tenders unless the entire pre-project work is completed. It includes detailed project report with complete drawings, technical and financial details and time schedules among others. “We have introduced pre-cast concrete foundation blocks, mechanisation for digging, mast erections and power cabling too to keep up with the time-lines, while ensuring that the civil, signalling, traffic and electric wings work in proper coordination so that normal train services are not effected,” said Mr. Yadav. Incidentally, he was part of the GMs’ working group that recommended the new work guidelines and these have been accepted by the RB, but put into practice countrywide now. Among the key sections likely to be commissioned this year are: Guntakal-Kalluru, Guntakal-Toranagallu, Nallapadu-Pagidipalli, Peddapalli-Lingampet-Jagityal, Manmad-Mudkhed-Dhone, Obulavaripalli-Krishnapatnam and various suburban sections under MMTS Phase-II. In Nallapadu-Guntakal section, Nallapadu-Diguvametta (209 km), Guntakal-Dhone and Gooty-Pendekallu (97 km) and Dhone-Diguvametta (129km) are already done. For Manmad-Mudkhed-Dhone section, the tender is being finalised as of now. For these, Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL), Central Organisation for Railway Electrification (CORE) and Tata Projects are the implementing agencies. “Electrification helps railways become energy-efficient and faster, reduces operational and maintenance cost, helps in increasing speed, besides reducing dependence on fuel imports,” adds the GM.
