COIMBATORE: The Salem division of the Southern Railway has electrified more than 80% of its railway tracks and is likely to complete electrification of the entire stretch of tracks well within the 2021-2022 deadline fixed by the central government.
According to railway officials, only two stretches remain to be electrified and the work on the same would be taken up this year. Electrification of railway tracks is expected to reduce the railways’ dependence on diesel, reduce running time of trains and allow easier operation of trains.
Southern railway officials said they

had electrified 673km of the total 857.96km railway tracks as on December last year. “The Erode-Karur-Trichy stretch and the Salem-Karur-Dindigul stretch, which together extend to around 300km, were the latest to be electrified at a cost of Rs300 crore. We completed the work by December 2018, while the deadline falls on mid-2019. The Coimbatore-Mettupalayam and the Coimbatore-Erode stretches were electrified much earlier,” said a railway official, who didn’t want to be named.
The 138.2km-Salem-Vridhachalam stretch and the 18km-Podanur-Kinathukidavu stretch are the only ones to be electrified now. “We have been instructed to maintain the current momentum of work. Work on these two stretches is expected to start by 2019-end and will be completed latest by 2021-end. We don’t have plans to electrify the Nilgiri Mountain Rail stretch that comes around 45km,” the official said.
The central government had earlier approved a plan to completely electrify all the tracks in the Salem division by 2021-2022 financial year. “Our government’s policy is to electrify tracks at a speed of 6,200km per year,” the official said.
Officials said the selection of right contractors, who could supply more manpower and materials, has helped them complete the work ahead of the deadline. “We made our contractors utilize more manpower, machinery and materials so they could finish the work fast. We also coordinated well with the railway operations departments, which is critical to completing track works. Usually, getting the track free is a task, but we managed to do it.”
They said the electrification of tracks would mainly reduce their dependence on diesel, which the country imports. It would also reduce running time of trains as electric engines would work more efficiently and faster. “The chances of being able to introduce MEMU or suburban trains on the same track increases,” the official said.
மும்பை – கோவா செல்லும் சொகுசு ரயில் தேஜா எக்ஸ்பிரஸில் இப்போது பயணிகள் மதுரைக்கும் செல்லலாம். அதுவும் அலுங்காமல் குலுங்காமல் ஜாலியா டிவி பார்த்துகிட்டே.
அதிநவீன வசதிகளை கொண்ட தேஜஸ் ரயிலானது இதற்கு முன்பு மும்பைக்கும் கோவாவிற்கும் இடையே இயக்கப்பட்டு பயணிகளிடையே மிகுந்த வரவேற்பை பெற்றுள்ளது. தென்னிந்திய ரயில்வேத்துறை தேஜஸ் சொகுசு விரைவு ரயிலை சென்னையில் இருந்து மதுரைக்கு இயக்க முடிவெடுத்துள்ளனர்.

ரயில் 70 கிமீ வேகத்தில் பயணிக்கும் என்று தெரிவிக்கப்பட்டிருக்கிறது. 7 மணி நேரம் பயணம் நீடிக்கும் இந்த ரயிலை தேர்வு செய்யும் பயணிகளுக்கு போர் அடிக்காமல் இருக்க வைபை, ஏசி, சிசிடிவி கேமரா உள்ளிட்ட பல்வேறு வசதிகள் அமைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.
பயணம் நேரம் :
காலை 6 மணிக்கு புறப்படும் இந்த ரயில் மதியம் 1 மணிக்கு மதுரையை சென்றடையும். மீண்டும் அங்கிருந்து புறப்பட்டு இரவு 9 மணிக்கு சென்னையை வந்தடையும்.
டிக்கெட் விலை:
சாதரண பெட்டியில் பயணிக்க ஒரு டிக்கெட் 1000 ரூபாய் விலையிலும், எக்ஸிக்யூடிவ் பெட்டியில் பயணிக்க தலா 2000 ரூபாய் தொகைக்கும் விற்பனை செய்யப்படும்.
இந்த அறிவிப்பு பொதுமக்களிடையே விவாதத்தை கிளப்பியுள்ளது. 1000, 2000 ரூபாய் தொகையில், அதுவும் சதாப்தி ரயிலை விட 20% அதிகமான விற்பனை தொகை இருக்கும் இந்த ரயிலின் வேகம் குறைந்தது தான் என்றும் விமர்சித்து வருகின்றனர்.
இதுவரை சென்னையில் இருந்து மதுரைக்கு இயங்கி வரும் ரயில்களில், வைகை விரைவு ரயில் தான் 7 மணி நேரம் 40 நிமிடங்களில் செல்லும் ரயிலாக உள்ளது. அதையடுத்து தேஜஸ் ரயில் தான் அதி வேக ரயிலாக சென்னை – மதுரை செல்ல அறிமுகமாகியுள்ளது.
எனினும் தமிழ்நாடு அரசு பஸ் கட்டணங்களை உயர்த்தி வருகிறது. இதனால் நடுத்தர குட்ம்பத்தினர்களையும் இந்த ரயில் கவரும் வகையில் சேவைகள் அமைக்கப்பட்டிருக்கிறது. மேலும் இந்த ரயில், திருச்சி மற்றும் கொடைக்கானல் ரோடு ரயில் நிலையங்களிலும் நிறுத்தப்படும் என்று தகவல்கள் தெரிவிக்கின்றது.
