CHENNAI: By the end of this week, Tambaram station, the new coaching terminal being built for Chennai, will have an important passenger amenity that even Chennai Central lacks -a major food plaza with vegetarian, non-vegetarian and fast food dishes.
Touted as the country's biggest food plaza (by area) within a railway station, it will be inaugurated by railway minister Suresh Prabhu when he visits the city this weekend.
Unlike the major food plaza at Chennai Central, the one at Tambaram got around bureaucratic tangles regarding supply of electricity. The Tambaram food court will
spread across 12,000sqft. As many as 600 people can dine in its restaurants at any time.
Indian Railways will earn close to `50 crore in licence fees from the project over the next 12 years.
Along with brands like Saravana Bhavan, Adyar Ananda Bhavan and Madras Coffee House, international fast food chain McDonalds is set to open its first stall in a railway station in the plaza.Another local player, Madurai Kumar Mess, has also been roped in. Separate counters selling Rail Neer water bottles and juice stalls will also be available. The threestorey building on the GST Road side will be fire-proof with water sprinkler systems, said N Gopinathan, chief project consultant of JS Catterers, the licencee.
For the first time, two huge cold storages for vegetarian and non-vegetarian food products have been installed in a railway station, an official said.
The outlets will be in three locations -a threestorey structure located behind the bus stand on GST Road on the western side, a two-storey structure beside the parking lot on the eastern side, and a small counter in the concourse. The restaurants in the first two structures will be open to people outside the railway station as well.
"The brands have been chosen carefully to cater to the college-going crowd on the eastern end. On the western side, the restaurants will cater to families, especially those who like the cuisine of south Tamil Nadu," Gopinathan said.
Officials of Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), which issued the contract, said they expect around 1 lakh customers daily. The station records 50,000 footfalls a day, which is likely to go up once the station is converted into a coaching terminal, an official said.

கூடுவாஞ்சேரியில் பயணிகள் ஏறுவதற்குள் மின்சார ரெயில் புறப்பட்டு விட்டதால் சிலர் கீழே விழுந்து காயம் அடைந்தனர். இதனால் ஆத்திரம் அடைந்த பயணிகள் அதன் பின்னால் வந்த மற்றொரு மின்சார ரெயிலை மறித்து ஆர்ப்பாட்டத்தில் ஈடுபட்டனர்.

பயணிகள் காயம்
சென்னையை அடுத்த
கூடுவாஞ்சேரி ரெயில் நிலையத்தில் இருந்து காலை நேரங்களில் அலுவலகம், பள்ளி, கல்லூரி செல்லும் ஏராளமான பயணிகள் மின்சார ரெயில்கள் மூலம் சென்னை உள்பட பல்வேறு பகுதிகளுக்கு சென்று வருகின்றனர். நேற்று காலை 8.30 மணி அளவில் கூடுவாஞ்சேரி ரெயில் நிலையத்தில் மின்சார ரெயில்களில் செல்வதற்காக பயணிகள் கூட்டம் அதிகமாக காணப்பட்டது.
அப்போது செங்கல்பட்டில் இருந்து தாம்பரம் நோக்கி வந்த ஒரு மின்சார ரெயில் கூடுவாஞ்சேரியில் நின்றது. ஆனால் பயணிகள் ஏறுவதற்குள் அந்த ரெயிலை டிரைவர் உடனே எடுத்துவிட்டதாக கூறப்படுகிறது.
இதனால் ரெயிலில் ஏறிக்கொண்டிருந்த சில பயணிகள் நிலைதடுமாறி ஓடும் ரெயிலில் இருந்து நடைமேடையில் விழுந்தனர். இதில் அவர்களுக்கு சிறிய அளவில் காயம் ஏற்பட்டது.
ரெயிலை மறித்து ஆர்ப்பாட்டம்
இதனால் ஆத்திரம் அடைந்த பயணிகள், அந்த ரெயிலுக்கு பின்னால் வந்த மற்றொரு மின்சார ரெயில் கூடுவாஞ்சேரி ரெயில் நிலையம் வந்த உடன் ரெயிலை வழி மறித்து நின்று ஆர்ப்பாட்டத்தில் ஈடுபட்டனர். இதனை அறிந்த ரெயில்வே அதிகாரிகள், ஆர்ப்பாட்டத்தில் ஈடுபட்ட பயணிகளிடம் பேச்சுவார்த்தை நடத்தினார்கள்.
அப்போது பயணிகள், “தினமும் அலுவலகம் செல்லும் நேரங்களில் பயணிகள் கூட்டம் அதிகமாக உள்ளது. ஆனால் கூடுவாஞ்சேரி ரெயில் நிலையத்தில் வந்து நிற்கும் மின்சார ரெயில்கள் பயணிகள் ஏறுவதற்குள் புறப்பட்டு விடுகிறது. இதனால் வயதான பயணிகள் ஏற முடியாமல் அவதிப்படுகின்றனர். தினமும் இந்த பிரச்சினை உள்ளது. இனிவரும் நாட்களில் கூடுவாஞ்சேரியில் ரெயில் ஒரு சில நிமிடங்கள் நிற்க வேண்டும். பயணிகள் ஏறிய பிறகுதான் புறப்பட வேண்டும்” என்றனர்.
அதிகாரிகள் உறுதி
அதற்கு அதிகாரிகள் நடவடிக்கை எடுப்பதாக உறுதி அளித்தனர். இதையடுத்து ஆர்ப்பாட்டத்தில் ஈடுபட்டவர்கள் கலைந்து சென்று அந்த மின்சார ரெயிலில் ஏறி வேலைக்கு சென்றனர்.
இந்த ஆர்ப்பாட்டம் காரணமாக சுமார் அரை மணி நேரம் செங்கல்பட்டு-தாம்பரம் மார்க்கத்தில் ரெயில் போக்குவரத்து பாதிப்பு ஏற்பட்டது. இந்த சம்பவம் கூடுவாஞ்சேரி ரெயில் நிலையத்தில் பெரும் பரபரப்பை ஏற் படுத்தியது.

Station Border Road is a key stretch providing easy access to various localities in Chromepet, including Rajendra Prasad Road, Hasthinapuram and Chitlapakkam Main Road, Chitlapakkam, Radha Nagar and Nehru Nagar.
Its usefulness is diminished by its poor surface and lack of illumination.
“The stretch is damaged at several points and water stagnates even after a mild downpour,” said K.S. Kumar, a resident of Hasthinapuram, said.
to waterlogged spots, which are avoided by motorists, the usable section of the road is narrow.
With poor illumination, the stretch becomes even more difficult to navigate after sunset.
Starting from the intersection of Chitlapakkam Main Road and Station Board Road, there are no street lights for a distance of over 500 metres.
Southern Railway officials have said steps are being taken to address the issue.
“We are ready to hand over the maintenance of the road to the Pallavapuram municipality,” the officials added.

Tambaram rail passenger terminal to be ready by year-end
The much awaited conversion of Tambaram into the third passenger terminal in the city after Chennai Central and Chennai Egmore is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
“The civil and mechanical work involved in the Coaching Terminal project would be completed in about 10 days. The water supply mechanism would be ready in 30-40 days. In all, by the end of December, the third terminal is expected to be operational,” said Vashishta Johri, General Manager, Southern Railway, Chennai.
along with Divisional Railway Manager, Anupam Sharma, and a team of officials conducted a review of the work being executed at the new coaching depot in Tambaram. He urged the technical staff and contractors to expedite the project to meet the deadline.
The present schedule of work includes construction of pit lines (to examine the rakes), a stabilising line, a full-length shunting line and four sick lines to attend to compartments needing repair. At present, nearly 250 suburban electric trains operate from Tambaram to Chennai Beach and Chengalpattu.
People of surrounding areas have for long been demanding that the station, which now sees a footfall of more than one lakh a day, be made a passenger terminal as it will save passengers returning from the southern parts of the State the trouble of having to travel to Chennai Central or Egmore.
The project, estimated to cost Rs. 34.68 crore, will benefit over one lakh commuters. Work was sanctioned after repeated demands by residents of the southern suburbs and began in 2008-2009. Southern Railway officials said the work was on track and the construction of pit lines was over and tests were on for track linking. Installation of overhead wires and networking process were expected to be completed in a few days, they added.
Loco shed work was also being completed at a fast pace, officials said, adding that an 11kV substation would be in place to provide the power supply required for the terminal building and loco sheds.

As per a decision by the Indian Railways to replace conventional air-conditioned and non-air-conditioned Integral Coach Factory (ICF) made coaches with the LHB coaches gradually on all trains, Southern Railway Trichy - Chennai - Trichy Rockfort express have been allotted such type of rakes.
According to a statement from the Trichy railway division, new LHB (Linke Hofmann Busch) coaches have been allotted for Trichy - Chennai Egmore - Trichy Rockfort Express trains. Consequently, the two rakes of train no. 16178/16177 Rockfort Express will be converted into LHB stock on September 26 and 27, 2016. The composition of the new rakes will be revised as first class AC - 1, AC 2-tier - 3, AC 3-tier - 4, sleeper class - 10 and
general second class - 2 coaches.
LHB coaches are made of stainless steel and aluminium making them lighter as compared to conventional rakes. The modular interiors integrate lighting into ceiling and luggage racks with wider windows. The improved suspension system of LHB coaches ensures more comfort for passengers compared to conventional rakes.
