Visakhapatnam: Many parts of the district received heavy rain on Monday under the influence of a low pressure that formed over Bay of Bengal on Sunday.
Train services on the Kottavalasa-Kirandul (KK) railway line were also interrupted as boulders fell on the track due to rains in Visakha Agency. Officials from the Waltair division of the East Coast Railway rushed to the spot and restored the services. Train services on this sector were disrupted for nearly two hours.
"Boulders falling on the KK line is a common event for us during the monsoon.

We always keep the requisite emergency equipment ready so that the situation is brought under control at the earliest and train services are restored," said a senior railway official.
Meanwhile, weathermen at the Cyclone Warning Centre (CWC), Visakhapatnam, said the city received 14 mm of rainfall and the airport received 16.4 mm of rainfall from 8.30 am to 5.30 pm. They further said the low pressure area lying over west central and adjoining north-west Bay of Bengal off south Odisha coast and north coastal Andhra Pradesh did not turn into a well-marked low pressure till Monday. Many parts of coastal AP will receive moderate to heavy rains on Tuesday, the CWC officials said.

Naresh, a government employee living in Anakapalle, and Achari, a teacher living in Vizianagaram, who commute to the city daily for work, find the lack of local trains a curse for commuters.
“Though there are trains from Anakapalle to Visakhapatnam, they do not match the actual demand. I have to board either 57271 BZA- Rayagada Passenger or 57255 Kakinada - Vizag EMU, which are already packed to capacity with hardly any space to get in,” says Naresh.
Mr. Achari travels from Vizianagaram to Visakhapatnam every day. He boards 78531 Vizianagaram-Visakhapatnam DEMU, which is

packed to capacity with hardly any space to stand comfortably leave alone sitting in the train.
Both Naresh and Achari feel that there should be MEMU s (Mainline Electrical Multiple Unit) between Tuni/Anakapalle to Vizianagaram via Visakhapatnam after every 1 hour and a few services can be extended up to Annavaram one side (as it would meet the requirement of pilgrims travelling to Sri Satyanarayana Swamy temple) and Srikakulam on other side (as it would be useful to those going to Arasavalli and Srikurmam temples).
The introduction of the local trains would help in reducing the load on the National Highway and minimising road accidents. This is not all, the middle class and the poor will be saved the hassle of paying three or four times the fare for travel in buses.

న్యూఢిల్లీః విజయనగరం జిల్లా కొత్తవలస - ఒడిశాలోని కోరాపుట్ మధ్య రైల్వే లైన్ డబ్లింగ్ పనులకు కేంద్రం గ్రీన్‌ సిగ్నల్ ఇచ్చింది. ప్రధానమంత్రి నరేంద్రమోదీ అధ్యక్షతన బుధవారం జరిగిన కేంద్ర ఆర్థిక వ్యవహారాల కేబినెట్ కమిటీ కొత్తవలస-కోరాపుట్ రైల్వే లైన్ డబ్లింగ్ పనుల ప్రతిపాదనలకు ఆమోదం తెలిపింది.
189.278 కి.మీ. పొడవైన ఈ మార్గంలో రూ. 2977.64 కోట్ల అంచనా వ్యయంతో డబ్లింగ్ పనులు చేపడతారు. ఈ డబ్లింగ్ పనుల వల్ల ఆయా ప్రాంతాల మధ్య సరుకు రవాణా సులభతరం కావడమే కాకుండా రైల్వే ఆదాయం పెరుగుతుంది. ఈ పనులు వచ్చే ఏడేళ్లలో పూర్తవుతాయని అంచనావేసింది. ఒడిశాలోని కోరాపుట్ జిల్లా, ఆంధ్రప్రదేశ్‌లోని విజయనగరం, విశాఖపట్నం జిల్లాలకు ఈ ప్రాజెక్టు ఉపయోగపడనుంది. ఈ జిల్లాల మధ్య వివిధ రకాల ఖనిజాలు, ముడిసరుకు, ఇతర వస్తు రవాణా అవసరాలు పెరుగుతున్నందున కేంద్రం ఈ నిర్ణయం తీసుకుంది.
