konkan railway will travel with increased speed
निसर्ग सौंदर्याने नटलेल्या कोकणच्या भूमीतून जाणाऱ्या कोकण रेल्वेचा प्रवास येत्या काही वर्षांत आणखी वेगवान होणार आहे. सध्या एक लाइन असलेल्या या मार्गावर दोन गाड्या क्रॉस होताना होणारा विलंब टाळण्यासाठी २१ नवीन क्रासिंग स्टेशन उभारण्यात येत असून, त्यांचे कामही सुरू झाले आहे; तसेच या संपूर्ण मार्गाचे विद्युतीकरणही करण्यात येत आहे.
मुंबई आणि मेंगळुरूला जोडणाऱ्या कोकण रेल्वेची स्थापना २६ जानेवारी १९९८ मध्ये करण्यात आली. त्या वेळी या मार्गावर एकूण ६६ स्टेशन होती. आता नव्याने उभारण्यात येणाऱ्या २१ नवीन स्टेशनमुळे ही संख्या ८७ वर पोहोचणार आहे; तसेच या

२१ स्टेशनच्या प्रकल्पामुळे स्थानिकांना मोठा रोजगार उपलब्ध होणार आहे, अशी माहिती कोकण रेल्वेचे विभागीय महाव्यवस्थापक महंमद असीफ सुलेमान यांनी पत्रकारांच्या पाहणी दौऱ्यावेळी दिली. कोकण रेल्वेचे वरिष्ठ वाणिज्य व्यवस्थापक सुनील नारकर, वरिष्ठ जनसंपर्क अधिकारी गिरीश करंदीकर या वेळी उपस्थित होते.
दरम्यान, कोकण रेल्वेवरील रोहा ते वेरना आणि वेरना ते ठोकूर या दोन टप्यांचे विद्युतीकरण करण्यात येत आहे. रोहा ते वेरनापर्यंतचे काम एल अँड टी आणि वेरना ते ठोकूरपर्यंतचे काम कल्पतरू कंपनीस देण्यात आले आहे. या दोन्ही कामांसाठी १,११० कोटी रुपये खर्च अपेक्षित असून, हे काम तीन वर्षांत पूर्ण करण्याचा मानस आहे, असेही सुलेमान यांनी सांगितले.
कोकणातील बंदरांच्या विकासाला चालना
नव्याने उभारण्यात येणारी २१ पैकी आठ स्टेशन महाराष्ट्रातील असतील. त्यामध्ये इंदापूर, गोरेगाव रोड, सापे वामने, कलंबानी, कडवई, वेरावल्ली, खारेपाटण, अचिर्णे आदी स्टेशन आहेत. या नवीन स्टेशनच्या व मार्गाच्या विद्युतीकरणाचा मोठा लाभ कोकणातील बंदरांना आणि उद्योगांना होईल, असा विश्वास वरिष्ठ जनसंपर्क अधिकारी गिरीश करंदीकर यांनी व्यक्त केला.
खर्चात बचत
कोकण रेल्वेचा विद्युतीकरणामुळे डिझेलवरील खर्चात ३० टक्के बचत होणार आहे. या सर्वांना पुरक म्हणून कर्नाटकात बाली येथे सर्वांत मोठा ‘लॉजिस्टीक पार्क’ विकसित होत आहे. यामुळे नजिकच्या काळात कोकण रेल्वेवर कंटेनरची वाहतूक मोठ्या प्रमाणावर वाढून कोकण रेल्वेचे उत्पन्न वाढण्यास मदत होण्याची शक्यता आहे.
धुरांच्या रेषेतून मुक्ती
कोकण रेल्वे मार्गावर रोहा ते ठोकूर या ७४१ किमी मार्गाचे विद्युतीकरणाचे कामही प्रशासनाने हाती घेतले आहे. येत्या तीन वर्षांत हे काम पूर्ण होणे अपेक्षित आहे. त्यामुळे गेल्या कित्येक वर्षांपासून धुरांच्या रेषा हवेत सोडत धावणारी रेल्वे आता विद्युत इंजिनावर धावणार आहे.

Mangaluru, Oct 25: Construction of a railway station at Kenjar here, which was undertaken by southern railway at a cost of Rs 50 crore, is almost complete. The station, which falls between Padil and Thokur stations, is strategically very important because of its proximity to the airport here. It is only three km away from the international airport.
Works on platforms, construction of station building and signals have been completed while work on second railway tracks is in progress. Although the station construction is nearing completion, at present, trains do not stop here. A plan of action has already been set rolling towards seeing that trains moving on this line stop here.

is proposal for halting trains moving between the city and Margao express train (22636), city - Karwar passenger (56641), and city - Goa passenger (70106) at Kenjar.
Currently the road to airport from here takes a round about route via Karambar, Porkody and Jokatte KBS. A road to airport, if laid via Maravoor railway over-bridge, will be the shortest route. The railway department has acquired land for laying 1.5 km road and Malavoor gram panchayat has requested MP, Nalin Kumar Kateel, to see that this road is laid at the earliest. The panchayat has passed resolution for making all important trains to halt at Kenjar and its president, Ganesh Arbi, said the panchayat will be writing to railway department too on this subject.
The railway under-bridge built near Jokatte KBS is filled with water and hence proved to be a waste. Although this road was meant for vehicular traffic, it was executed without giving due regard to water level there.
The railway station is yet to be named. Malavoor gram panchayat has adopted a resolution to name this as 'Pejawar' railway station and sent the same to all concerned including Prime Minister, railway minister, chief ministers, MP, MLAs and deputy commissioner of the district in view of the fact that the spot where the station has come up is located in Pejawar in Kenjar village.

Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Sunday remotely inaugurated the railway goods siding at Thokur Railway Station near Mangaluru under Konkan Railway Corporation.
The half-siding (370 m) can cater to a half of a goods rake and would benefit several industries located around Baikampady Industrial Area, Mangalore Special Economic Zone and others, said a release from KRCL here.
It said that the siding built at a cost of Rs. 1.75 crore would help KRCL earn substantial revenue. Major commodities that can be handled include Purified Terephthalic Acid, Pet-coke, sulphur, bitumen and fertilizers.

Minister promises operation of Kudla Express from Mangaluru Central
Union Minister for Statistics and Programme Implementation D.V. Sadananda Gowda on Sunday said that the Indian Railways will strive to respond to development demands from Mangaluru railway region, which, at present, is spread across three Railway Zones.
He was speaking after Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu remotely flagged off the Mangaluru-Yeshwantpur Kudla Express; launched electrification of Mangaluru-Chervathur line; doubling of Jokatte-Panambur line and a railway siding at Thokur Station, here.

is aware that Mangaluru region is bereft of major railway amenities as it is served by the Southern, the South Western and Konkan Railways. Immediately taking charge as the Railway Minister, he had commenced the initiative of creating Mangaluru Railway Division; but it could not be done for technical reasons.
However, he now has initiated the move to relocate Konkan Railway’s regional office from Karwar to Mangaluru. This should culminate in some kind of reprieve for the region, he said.
The Minister said that the flagging off Kudla Express was the happiest movement in his life as he is giving something back to people who have nurtured him. He said that he had clearly told Mr. Prabhu that he would not attend any Railway function unless Kudla Express was introduced.
Mr. Sadananda Gowda said that when he had announced Kudla Express in the 2014 Railway Budget, he wanted it between Mangaluru Central and Yeshwantpur.
He is aware of the difficulties of the people reaching Mangaluru Junction from where it starts at present and has told Mr. Prabhu to get the train to Mangaluru Central, located inside the city. Soon, the train would come to Central and the inconvenient timings of its running too would be sorted out, he said.
Government Chief Whip in Legislative Council Ivan D’Souza launched an onslaught on Southern Railway which controls Mangaluru Central and Mangaluru Junction.
He said that the zone has been indifferent to the needs of the region despite it getting more than half of its revenue from New Mangalore Port.
Mr. D’Souza urged Southern Railway to be considerate to the region’s demand and urged it to introduce a night train between Bengaluru and Mangaluru.
Member of Parliament Nalin Kumar Kateel, Forest Minister B. Ramanath Rai and others were present.
Fare
The fare between Mangaluru and Yeshwantpur is ₹ 130 on Kudla Express, which has second class chair cars and general second class sitting coaches. It is ₹ 85 to Hassan, ₹ 95 to Shravanabelagola and ₹ 115 to Kunigal.
