Electrification works on the broad gauge section nearing completion
With electrification works on the Tiruchi–Erode broad gauge section via Karur reaching the final stages, diesal engines may soon have to give way to electric locomotives.
The Central Organisation for Railway Electrification (CORE) under the Ministry of Railways, which is executing the overhead electrification works on the 140-km stretch, has targeted to complete the entire works and commissioning by January-end.
The
...

electrification project, which gained momentum in the beginning of this month, is poised for completion in a year’s time — the fastest with respect to completion of OHE works in Southern Railway zone, CORE officials say.
Ahead of commissioning, CORE has planned to carry out trial runs on the newly electrified stretch with an electric locomotive before inviting the Commissioner of Railway Safety to carry out the mandatory inspection.
As part of the electrification project, which has been executed at a cost of nearly Rs. 130 crore, CORE has installed 210 portals and some 3,500 masts along the whole stretch.
Three sub-stations have also been established at Velliyanai, Pugalur and Pettavaithalai as part of the project that kick-started in November 2016. The sub-stations works are in the final stage of completion.
Although the target for completion is set for March, CORE expedited the project and advanced it for completion and commissioning before January. “The electrification project is in the final stage, and permission for charging the line has been given. The entire works are targeted to be completed and commissioned by January last week”, said a senior CORE official.
Upon carrying out trial runs using a light electric locomotive, CORE has planned to invite the Commissioner of Railway Safety to carry out the statutory inspection along the entire stretch from Tiruchi to Erode, the official added.
Once the sanction from the Commissioner of Railway Safety comes through, electric locomotives will be introduced. At present, all passenger and freight trains operated on this section are being hauled by diesel locomotives.
The Tiruchi–Erode section via Karur will become another electrified stretch after the Chennai–Tiruchi–Madurai segment. Electrification will enable faster acceleration of trains and pave the way for operation of Mainline Electric Multiple Unit trains instead of diesel ones. Electrification works are also simultaneously underway in the Tiruchi–Thanjavur–Tiruvarur–Karaikal and Karur–Salem–Dindigul sections by CORE.

At consultative committee meeting
Operation of a day-time express train to Bengaluru from Tiruchi and a slew of other demands were put forth by railway users at the Divisional Railway Users’ Consultative Committee (DRUCC) meeting held here on Thursday.
This was the first meeting of the DRUCC of Tiruchi Division for the period October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2019 presided over by the Divisional Railway Manager, Tiruchi P. Uday Kumar Reddy.

members representing passenger associations, consumer organisations, chamber of commerce, nominees of MPs, representative of differently – abled association and government nominees participated.
One of the DRUCC members Maheswari Vaiyapuri of Tiruchi made a fervent plea to the railway authorities to take steps to operate a new day-time express train from Tiruchi to Bengaluru or a train via Tiruchi.
She said the lone train touching Bengaluru from Mayiladuthurai was being operated via Tiruchi in the night. There was a need for operation of another train to Bengaluru in the day-time since it would help many who were unable to proceed in the night train, she added.
Another member A. Giri of Kumbakonam said diversion of the Mannai Express via Tiruvarur, Peralam and Mayiladuthurai would deprive passengers of Thanjavur, Papanasam and Kumbakonam of this train. This train had high level of passenger patronage in these stations.
He appealed to the divisional railway authorities to operate this train as Chennai Egmore – Mannargudi / Thanjavur Link express without affecting passenger of both areas. He also requested the railway authorities to operate all trains in the Tiruchi – Mayiladuthurai section.
V. R. Dhanaseelane from Karaikal pressed for laying a railway line from Karaikal to Peralam which was in existence up to 1985 and removed subsequently.
S. Selvaraj pleaded for a separate coach for persons with disabilities in the Chennai-bound Rockfort express.
Presiding over the meeting, Divisional Railway Manager Uday Kumar Reddy and chairman of the DRUCC highlighted the performance of the division.
