செங்கல்பட்டு வரை சர்க்கார் ரயிலில் செல்வதின் மூலம் அவர்களுக்கு எந்தப் பயனுமில்லை. கூடுதல் செலவு தான் ஏற்படுகிறது. அங்கிருந்து பேருந்து மூலம் புதுவை வர வேண்டியது.

Signal cable fault delays trains
A signal cable fault near Chengalpattu railway station resulted in a delayed arrival of the Pallavan Express in Chennai Egmore on Tuesday afternoon.
The train halted at Chengalpattu railway station for more than 45 minutes and this caused enormous anxiety among passengers who had to board connecting trains at Chennai Egmore and Central stations.

cable got punctured near the lake bund just 150 metres away from the railway station. This led to the signal malfunctioning between Chengalpattu and Singaperumal Koil railway stations.
In addition to the Pallavan Express, two Electric Multiple Unit trains were delayed for nearly 40 minutes too. Engineering staff attended to the fault and regular services were soon restored, said railway officials.

As the Union Minister of Railways, Suresh Prabhu would lay the foundation stone marking the beginning of work on laying a third broad gauge line connecting Tambaram and Chengalpattu, on Sunday, the Tambaram railway station and its surrounding areas have received a facelift.
The Union Railways Minister would also flag off a train service between Chennai Central and Howrah, according to railway officials.
As part of the inaugural ceremony, the Southern Railway has added lustre to the staircases on the eastern side of the station, having painting them in decorative colours.

at the site said the paint would last for a longer duration than the regular one.
However, it requires maintenance and once it gets faded, a new coat should be applied.
Workers were seen painting the main entrance on the western side and the road around the railway grounds was being black-topped.
Apart from this, hundreds of workers were engaged in making a dais ready at the venue of the event – which is the Railway Grounds.
Southern Railway Divisional Railway Manager - Chennai Anupam Sharma and other officials, along with senior officials of Government Railway Police and Railway Protection Force, visited the railway station and the Railway Grounds to oversee the arrangements for the function on Sunday.
Located 60 km from Chennai Beach, Chengalpattu is a fast-growing satellite town in neighbouring Kancheepuram district from where thousands travel to the State capital every day.
Now there are four lines between Chennai and Tambaram, two for long-distance trains and the other two for suburban trains.
Thousands of commuters from areas between Tambaram and Chengalpattu will, in a year’s time, have better access to Chennai Beach.
The commissioning of the doubling work from Chengalpattu to Villupuram along with the third line between Tambaram and Chengalpattu will ensure dedicated tracks for operating additional suburban train services between Chengalpattu and Chennai Beach — which are about 250 a day now.
