CHENNAI : The Southern Railway has interchanged the time slots of the Kovai and Shatabdi Express trains at the Coimbatore junction from August 15. The move is aimed at reducing the travel time of both trains and improve punctuality. According to the revised time-table, the Coimbatore Shatabdi will leave Coimbatore at 3.05pm, instead of 3.20pm and arrive at Chennai Central at 10.15pm. The Kovai Express will depart at 3.20pm, instead of 2.55pm and will reach Chennai Central at 10.55pm.
Good move by IR to speed up the trains as well as improving the punctuality. It should have been done long back. However, better late than never.
