Trend attributed to tardy pace of replacing 110-km track in Thiruvananthapuram Division
Delayed arrival of trains in the Thiruvananthapuram Division of the Indian Railways is set to continue till 2019, thanks to tardy pace of replacing 110 km of track, according to senior railway officials.
At present, approximately 70% of trains in the division arrive late at stations, causing unrest among commuters. (This means passengers will have to put up with late arrival for another two years.)
Up

to 35% of trains get delayed by 15 minutes or more. This in turn impacts trains that follow, affecting regular commuters, office-goers, women, aged people, and candidates appearing for tests and interviews.
Thiruvananthapuram Divisional Railway Manager Prakash Bhutani said the division had obtained sanction to replace 140 km of ageing tracks.
“Only 30-km track has been replaced, while rails have arrived for another 10 km. The whole process will take up to two years, and passengers will have to bear with us for late / slow running of trains. All trains will operate according to the timetable from then on,” he added.
During his recent visit to Kerala, the Chairman of the Railway Board had reiterated that safety had to be accorded priority, even if trains had to run late. “The late running of trains has been accentuated by the fact that 150 temporary halts were sanctioned for passenger trains between 2014 and 2016. The halts are still in place even now. A train slowing down to halt at a station and then picking up speed takes up to 10 minutes. A slow-running train further slows down those that follow,” Mr. Bhutani said.
Two-hour blocks
Now, trains are blocked for up to two hours at sites where tracks are being replaced. This leads to piling up of trains and the subsequent cascading effect wherein all trains running on the route suffer delay. Using this manual method, less than 300 metres of tracks can be replaced in two hours as sleepers are inserted manually. Up to 3 km of tracks can be replaced using machines, provided the track is blocked continuously for six hours. But it will require cancellation of many trains.
Slow doubling
The availability of double tracks in Kottayam and Alappuzha may help in avoiding delay in services. However, doubling is pending on four stretches in Kottayam. In Alappuzha, doubling work is in progress on two stretches, with the result that only a single track is available in the rest of the district.

They could have at least converted it to Rajdhani via PGT/CBE or regularised it as ac express......in any case most of the months in a year it seems to be running.
Sometimes very difficult to understand why some of the decisions like this take time!!

Overcoming several hurdles, renewal of railway track has commenced in the 40-km Kollam-Kayamkulam stretch, after nearly two decades.
The work is being taken up as part of ensuring safety of commuters. Ballast cleaning has not been taken up in the down line for almost a decade and for two decades in the up line in the stretch.
Cleaning of the ballast beneath the sleepers using ballast cleaning machine after enforcing a four-hour line block was not attempted due to lack of ‘corridor blocks,’ increase in passenger trains from Kollam junction, and special trains

for Ayyappa devotees running up to Kollam.
Ballast cleaning is a major work in maintenance of track and it will be stable only if the ballast stands. A ballast bed without any dirt and earth is needed for the smooth train movement, draining of rain water, and to absorb the resonance and transfer it to the ground.
“Without inconveniencing the commuters, we have commenced the track renewal along the corridor when the weather is good,” Divisional Railway Manager Prakash Bhutani told The Hindu.
Twenty per cent cleaning of the ballast in the down line has been completed. After mechanised ballast cleaning, worn out concrete sleepers weighing 275 kg to 300 kg are being replaced manually.
Track renewal has been completed in the 25 km Kollam-Karungapally stretch after enforcing line block. In the Kollam-Perinad section, 5 km of railway track has to be replaced. The Railways are waiting for the track relaying train that can relay the track in 400 to 500 metres at a stretch in four-and-a-half hours.
The Railways are not taking any risk after it was found that a fissure in the track led to the September 2016 derailment of 13 coaches of Thiruvananthapuram-Mangaluru Express near Karukutty. The 202 spots identified for immediate renewal of tracks in the division was under the stretches due for track renewal.
The Railways are using rails of 65 m instead of the conventional 13 m. A senior official of the engineering department said four 65 m rails are welded at the steel plant itself and transported to the site. “Thus, only four welding is needed in a km. This reduces the field work and ensures quality. We had also found that fissures develop in stretches mostly where field welding takes place,” he said.
In 2015-16, 155 track km was renewed at a cost of ₹75 crore. In 2016-17, the sanction is for 165 track km at a cost of ₹260 crore and 30% of it has been completed.
Periodic oscillation monitoring system is being used to detect vibrations in addition to permanent way inspectors inspection of tracks and monitoring of 6 to 6.5 km of tracks daily by keymen. The Track Recording Car is pressed into service to know the riding comfort.
