Electrification of Shoranur-Mangalore-Penambur section of Southern Railway
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Cabinet Committee on Infrastructure today approved the electrification of the Shoranur-Mangalore-Penambur section of Southern Railway.

The cost of electrification of this line is estimated at Rs.302.50 crore with allocation of Rs.45.38 crore in XI Plan and Rs.257.12 crore in XII Plan.

The route Shoranur-Mangalore-Penambur falls in the Northern and Western parts of Kerala (315 RKM) and Karnataka (13 RKM) respectively on the Chennai-Mangaore corridor. Major traffic moved on this section is food grains, coal to industries, hardware, fertilizers, coir, paper, timber, cement, rubber, petroleum products, mineral ore, copper and other electrical goods.

BACKGROUND:

Electrification of Trivandrum to Shoranur and Shoranur to Chennai is already done and work is in progress in Trivandrum-Kannyakumari section. Electrifying Shoranur-Mangalore-Penambur section will ensure seamless operation in Penambur-Mangalore-Kannyakumari section (736 RKM) and Chennai-Penambur section (591 RKM). This will reduce the detention to good trains and will ensure faster movement of passenger and goods traffic.

The project is planned to be completed in five years and will be executed by Central Organisation for Railway Eletrification, Allahabad. The project is expected to be completed in the year 2014-15 and will cover two States, i.e. Kerala & Karnataka and six districts, i.e. Palghat, Mlappuram, Kozhikode, Kannur & Kasargod in Kerala and Dakshin Kannad of Karnataka.

Wow, what a great news to hear. Now, the Chennai/Puducherry-Mangalore trains can run fully with electric engines and railways can try to cut down the disel consumption as much as possible.

Dear Chidambaram,

I think you have asked this question, keeping only the route of the recently introduced 6043/44 in your mind. Then the run for that train in the VRI - SA stretch has to be in diesel only as it is not approved.

But, who knows, in future, we may see, PDY - VM - KPD ( I presume the electrification of this stretch is approved) - SA - MAQ trains in future. Or also, PDY - VM- MS - KPD-SA-MAQ ( as it was originally proposed to have PDY - MAQ trains). Then for those trains it would be full electric run from beginning to end. Smile Smile

bye & cheers,
ravi

Doubling of track between Mangalore-Shornur to be completed soon

Mangalore, Feb 15: Union Minister of State for Railways E Ahmed today said the ongoing doubling work on 310 km track between Mangalore and Shornur will be completed in next six months time.

Addressing mediapersons after inaugurating new Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited (IRCTC) Food Plaza at Mangalore Central station here he said the doubling of the track between Mangalore and Shornur was most important for railways which would result in economic development as well as railway development of the region. Except for the work in three stretches totallying about 10 km, rest of the work had already been completed, he said.

The minister who also inspected the progress of the work while expressing his satisfaction over the fast progress made and said the bridge work across Netravathy River near here to a total stretch of five km was held up mainly due to climatic changes and frequent change of cotractors. The work had now been entrusted to another contractor. Work of two spans and four steel girders was remaining while, around 4.5 km stretch of work near Karekkad also remained balance mainly due to some technical reasons. Another three fourth km at Calicut could not be completed following delays in clearance from Railway Safety Board, he said adding that the central cabinet had also given its approval for electrification between Mangalore and Shornur which would also be taken up soon.

Replying to a query on the apprehension in the seat reservation quota from, Mangalore following extension of Bangalore, the minister said a delegation had already met him in Delhi on the issue and he had assured them that there is no reason for discrimination of denial of any facility to the people of Mangalore. The Railways is giving importance to all region without discrimination, he said.

He said Mangalore, which had a long railway history, had been selected as the ''World Class Heritage Railway Station''. A team had already visited the station in this regard. All facilities would be made available to this station to meet the requirement of world class category, he said. --UNI

I had a chance of visiting this place recently.

I was travelling by 2601. Reached Shoranur Jn by 06:05. We had loco change from WAP4 to WDP2.
The loco change happened in less than 5-10 minutes. The train was cleared at around 06:15.
Once the train left the shoranur platform,there were ground works for the second line between SRR-CLT track and SRR-NIL track.
SRR-NIL track was following for few kilometers(1 to 2 Km) after that it made a steep right curve and disappeared between the trees.
I could see only ground leveling work for few Kilometers and within no time(less than 5 minutes) we crossed Karakad station (from there the double line started)

I dont know why SR has left such a small distance pending for very long time (almost three years). and moreover I could not see any complex bridge in this stretch.

Is this part of project put on hold for any specific reason?Does anyone have more info on this?

Speed up rail electrification: MP

Special Correspondent

‘Expedite work on improving travel facilities'

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Electrification of Shoranur-Mangalore line yet to take off

Says tenders have not been invited for project

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

KOZHIKODE: M.K. Raghavan, MP, has urged the Railway Board chairman to expedite work on improving rail travel facilities in the northern districts of Kerala.

He noted that though Rs.68 crore had been allotted in the Railway budget for electrification of the rail line between Shoranur and Mangalore, the project was yet to take off.

Mr. Raghavan has expressed concern over the delay in taking up the work and utilisation of the fund.

Tenders had not been invited for the project. Further delay may result in the fund remaining [un] utilised at the end of the financial year, Mr. Raghavan said.

Sources said even an office for the project had not yet been set up though the Railway authorities had announced it would be opened in Kozhikode. Besides, the promise to post three senior officers in Kozhikode has not been kept.

“The people fear that the funds allotted for the work would lapse and the project would not materialise in the near future,” said Mr Raghavan.

The MP had already sent a representation to Railway Board chairman Vivek Sahai drawing his attention to the delay in rail electrification on the Shoranur-Mangalore sector and demanding speedy completion of the project.

Tenders invited for Shornur-Kannur Railway Line Electrification.

Quote:
175kms, 27.1 crores estimate.
Work to be completed in 24 months time.

News in Malayalam.

http://www.mathrubhumi.com/online/malayalam/news/story/653576/2010-12-03/kerala


Kerala moves in to the right direction towards almost 100% electrified routes. I think the routes which would be left behind without electrification would be the Kollam-Punalur-Shencottah, Palakkada-Pollachi (?) and Shornur-Nilambur.

Anyway good to see the main trunk routes getting electrified.
