BADHRACHALAM - KOVVUR - New Track
KAKINADA - Pitapuram - New Track

These new tracks and doubling improves the transport infrastructure in AP and boosts the development. If the above infrastructure completes, AP will get more trains.

New tracks required that will improve connectivity and reduce distance and open alternative routes

1. Manoharabad-Gazwel-Siddipet-Siricilla-Vemulavada-Kottapalli (near Karimnagar) this line will connect Karimnagar- Jagityal line, will serve as alternative route to New Delhi from Hyderabad (via Karimnagar and Pedda palli), in future, if Jagityal is connected to Ramagundam, fast trains bound to New Delhi (Duranto, Rajadhani etc) can take this route.

2. Bhadrachalam- Vishakhapatnam (277 km)- This will provide quick access to Vizag and reduce distance between Hyderabad and Vizag, besides connecting tribal areas and runs through forest.

3. (Manuguru to Ramagundam) and (Miryalaguda/Vishnupuram- Jaggayya peta) (work in progress) and (Nadikudi-Sri Kalahasti) (Sanctioned in 2011) once finished these three lines will reduce distance between Tirupathy/Chennai and New Delhi considerably, besides providing an alternate route (last line) in cyclone prone areas.

4. Vikarabad (Nagula palli)- Sangareddy and from Sangareddy- to Manoharabad provides direct access to trains from Bangalore to New Delhi route via ( Siddipet, Kottapally) by passing Secundrabad.

5. Connecting Patancheruvu- Sangareddy (via Kandi (IIT- Hyderabad), Rudraram) and Nagula palli to Sangareddy (As mentioned in 4, via BDL town ship and Yeddumilaram Ordinance factory would be beneficial. Both Patancheruvu- Sangareddy and Nagula palli- Sangareddy will serve as Good routes for Phase III expansion on MMTS.

6. Bidar- Medak- Akkanapet will also provide alternate access to trains from Northern Karnataka to New Delhi (Via Nizamabad-Jagityal- Ramagundam).

7. Adilabad-Niraml- Armoor connects Adilabad to Hyderabad directly. Adilabad- Ghadchandur connects Nanded route to New Delhi Route.

8. Manuguru- Kirandul and Bhadrachalam- Kovvuru improve connectivity and serve tribal areas and connect natural ore rich areas to Main lines.
9. Nandyal- Jadcherla ( Via Atmakur, Nagar Kurnool ) reduces distance between Kacheguda and Tirupathy (via Nandyal, Yerraguntla, cuddapah).
10. Cuddapah to Bangalore (via Madanapalli,) sanctioned and Cumbum to Yerraguntla reduces distance between Bangalore and Vizag or Kolkata (via Guntur and Vijayawada).
11. Connecting Gadwal- Macherla ( via Wanaparthy, Nagar Kurnool, Dindi, Devarakonda, Malle paali ) to Macherla- Nalgonda line provides connectivity between two important South Telengana districts.
12. Connection of new upcoming Fright Terminals and Passenger terminals,
a. Naguala palli (Mumbai route)- Timmapur ( Bangalore Route) (Economically viable)
b. Nagulapalli to Sangareddy and Patancheruvu to Sangareddy and Sangareddy to Manoharabad ( as mentioned before) (Economically viable)
c. Ghatkesar to Timmapur via Pedda amber pet ( May not be economically viable)
d. Ghatkesar to Manoharabad (May not be economically viable)
these connections should follow the alignement of ORR where possible,

Finally connection of Pedda amber pet to Chityal ( via Malkapuram, Bhoodan pochampally, Choutuppal , mostly following NH 65 (old NH 9) should be laid.

There are so many proposals in AP. But, Ministry takes few of them based on priority.
New lines like MANOHARABAD - SIDDIPET - KOTHAPALLI, NADIKUDI - SRIKALAHASTHI, BADHRACHALAM - VISHAKA will not come reality unleass there are more funds to railway or a Railway minister from AP.
In coming 5 years, we can expect only few lines into reality.
They are Miryalaguda-Jaggayapet, Nizamabad-Jagityal, Devarakadra-Krishna (Mahaboobnagar-munirabad section), Gadwal-Raichur, Yerraguntla-Nandyal.
These lines are in progress and about to complete in 3-4 years.
Other proposals are just god may know.

Japanese firm to conduct study on Hyderabad-Chennai rail corridor

Quote:
Railways have selected a Japanese consortium to explore the possibility of running a bullet train on the Hyderabad-Chennai high speed rail corridor.

Japan External Trade Organisation (Jetro) and Oriental Consultancy along with Parsons Brinkhoff India has bagged the contract to conduct the pre-feasibility study on the proposed 664 km long Hyderabad-Vijaywada-Chennai route for running the high speed train, a senior Railway Ministry official said.

Japan’s high speed trains Shinkansen operate at a speed of up to 300 km per hour and are known for their punctuality, comfort, safety and efficiency.

The consortium will submit the report in seven months.

The study is expected to cost the railways about Rs. 3.5 crore.

There were a total of 13 bidders including Korean, French, British and Spanish consultants in the race to bag the southern high speed rail project.

With the selection of the Japanese consortium, railways have undertaken study of four routes for running bullet trains.

Railways have roped in French firm Systra for Pune-Mumbai-Ahmedabad (650 km) route, while UK—based consultant Mott McDonald has been engaged to conduct the pre-feasibility study of the longest Delhi-Agra—Lucknow—Varanasi-Patna (991 km) route.

Spanish consultant Eneco has been hired to carry out studies in the shortest Howrah-Haldia (135 km) route.

Systra has submitted the report to the Railway Ministry, which is being examined now.

Selection for consultants for Delhi-Chandigarh-Amritsar (450 km) and Chennai-Bangalore-Coimbatore-Thiruvananthapuram (869 km) high speed rail corridor will be decided shortly.

In order to expedite the bullet train project, Railways is in the process of constituting the National High Speed Rail Authority on the lines of the National Highways Authority.

The draft of the National High Speed Rail Authority Bill has been sent to the Law Ministry, Urban Development Ministry, Environment Ministry, Finance Ministry and Planning Commission for their views.

“The final draft of the Bill would be sent to the Cabinet for its approval before being introduced in the Budget Session of Parliament,” the official said.

According to an estimate, it will cost about Rs.100 crore to construct a one km dedicated high speed corridor. As per the preliminary report, ridership revenues would be able to cover the operating cost of the project.

State governments and financial institutions are expected to be stakeholders of the high speed rail corridor project as these projects will be executed through PPP mode.

Railways plan to make the high speed rail corridor a catalyst for India’s economic growth and a stimulus for the development of satellite towns.

APSRTC ‘Aakarsha' to attract patrons

Quote:
Local officials of the AP State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) are eager to transform the Krishna region unit of the Corporation into a major source of attraction to the public.

‘Aakarsha' is their answer to the smart moves of private bus operators eating into a major chunk of the RTC revenue.

The new scheme, which literally means ‘attraction' in Telugu, envisages enticing customers by reducing travel time, especially on long-distance routes.

A recent survey conducted to determine factors contributing to the passengers' tilt towards private bus services revealed that most people prefer private services to cut down on the travel time.

“As part of ‘Aakarsha' our drivers are being trained on how to reduce travel time. Time sense is the catchword and we want our bus crew to strictly adhere to the prescribed time schedules,” K.V.R.K. Prasad, Regional Manager of the RTC told The Hindu on Saturday.

The drivers are told not to extend their wait for the late Lateefs beyond 10 minutes. “If a passenger takes beyond 10 extra minutes to reach the departure destination, he/she can be accommodated in the next bus, depending on the situation,” said Mr. Prasad, pointing out that rail passengers do not have the luxury of being waited for.

Besides inculcating time sense, the RTC is also contemplating elimination of a few ‘not-so-important' stages (halts) from the long- distance services. Henceforth, in the stopovers, the bus driver will have to announce the duration of the halt time. “People alight from the vehicle and get scattered in different directions without a clue on when the bus will revive its onward journey. This often results in waste of time that can be saved,” says Mr. Prasad.

Driving speed of the person behind the wheel will come under scanner with the officials closely monitoring the mileage of the vehicle.

“The driver of a Volvo bus will not have the choice to move at a slow pace and increase the travel time,” said Mr. Prasad.

The RTC, meanwhile, is also planning to operate buses to the Gannavaram airport. “Since the number of flights has increased, we are toying with launch of bus operation in sync with the arrival time of the flights,” he said.

As per the Railway budget 2011-12,
1.Bhadrachallam-Kovvur (~ 151 km)
2. Hyderabad-Gazwel-Siddipet-Sircilla-Jagityal ( actually Kottapalli, as karimnagar- Jagityal line is already functional) (~149 km)
3. Nizamabad-Ramagundam (while Jagityal- Nizamabad is under construction, Jagityal- Ramagundam to be constructed) (~65km)
are the first 3 projects mentioned (in a list of 191 projects completed surveys), which probably could be included in 12th five year plan (Pradhan Mantri Rail Vikas Yojana) and not in regular railway budgets

Some other projects mentioned which could be taken up are

4.Marikuppam (karnataka)- Kuppam (AP) (~ 14 km between Marikuppam and Bishnattam)

5. Nangali (Karnataka)- Chittoor (~ 63 km, connecting Kolar with Chittoor), I cann't find a track between Kolar and Nangali, though, which is ~ 48 km)

6.Medak-Akkanapet (~18km)

7. Secunderabad-Mahboobnagar (May be they were reffereing to doubling between Falaknuma and Mahboobnagar )

8. Pandurangpuram-Bhadrachalam (~ 13km)

9. Pattancheru - Adilabad (via? It may be a old survey, and can be scrapped if, Adilabad to Armoor and Patancheru-Sangareddy- Manoharabad/ Akkanapet are connected).

A request for a survey of railway line between Patancheru and Akkannapet via Sangareddy, Jogipet, and Andol is under consideration.

10. Chikballapur (Karnataka)-Sri Satya Sai Prashanthi Nilayam (Puttaparthy)

11. Vishnupuram-Vinukonda (~ 100 km)

12. Bolangir (Orissa)-Nawpada (Srikakulam) (actually referreing to connecting Gunupur (orissa) to Rayagada (orissa)

13. Bibinagar-Nallapadu (near Guntur) (Referring to Doubling),

only few of them may ultimately get nod for inclusion in 12th five year plan.

13. Bibinagar-Nallapadu (near Guntur) (Referring to Doubling),

only few of them may ultimately get nod for inclusion in 12th five year plan.
Projects which need immediate attention are
1.Doubling and Electrification of Secundrabad-Manoharabad, doubling and electrification of Falaknuma to Umdanagar and further from Umdanagar to Shamshabad (new line) (as part of MMTS phase 2). Upgrading of Moulali and Makajgiri stations and providing stops for long distance trains (thus by passing Secundrabad station) should be top priority for SCR.
2.A new line from Kolar (Srinivaspur) to Madanapalli road (~ 60 km) provides direct alternative route from Bengaluru to Tirupati (via Kolar, Madanapalli, Pakala) avoiding circuitous route from Jolarpeta, Katpadi). This link connects Bengaluru, Tirupathy and Chennai with direct and shortest route and has the potential for high speed bullet trains as it connects three most important cities in south India and part of the track is already under trunk route (from Chennai to Renigunta). This also partly completes the proposed Bengaluru-Cuddapah line, the later in the present scenario might need several years to complete. Cuddapah to Madanapalli road can be completed in future at an appropriate time. Alternatively Kolar- Nangali- Chittoor may be taken up to provide straight line connection between Bengaluru and Chennai.
And of course, finishing of railway projects which are progessing at a good rate like, Vishnupuram-Jaggayapet, Nizamabad-Jagityal, Yerraguntla-Nandyal, Gadwal-Raichur and Devarakadra-Krishna (Mahaboobnagar-munirabad section). Interestingly, all these are under construction projects are meant for connecting two important lines (eg. Gadwal-Raichur connects Hyderabad-Bangalore route with Mumbai-Bangalore route).

Works proposed for 2011-2012 are, Vizianagaram-Rayagada-Titlagarh-Raipur line electrification, Korukonda-Vizianagaram, Manchiriyal-Mandamari, Kottavalsa-Kantakapali doubling.
Some of the sections of new lines proposed to be completed in 2011-2012 are
Raichur-Pandurangaswamy, Nossam-Banaganapalle, Devarakadra-Krishna, Metpally-Armoor, Banaganapalli-Nandyal.
Works finished in 2010-2011 are, sections of new lines Jagityal- Mortad ( part of Jagityal- Nizamabad),Khanapur- Homnabad ( Part of Gulbarga-Bidar),Nossam- Banaganapalli ( part of Nandyal-Yerraguntla),Vishnupuram- Jahanpad ( part of Vishnupuram- Jaggayyapet), Gadwal-Pandurangswami (part of Gadwal-Raichur) have been completed in 2010-2011.
Doubling of 4th line between Kottavalasa-Simhachalam, Kamalapuram-Muddanuru, Guntakal – Raichur, Gooty – Pullampet, Kondapuram-Tadipatri, were finished in 2010-2011.

High-speed railway corridors to pass through AP

Quote:
The Railway ministry is planning to construct six high speed corridors for which survey work is underway. Among the proposed high speed corridors will be one from Kolkata to Kerala via Vijayawada, Nellore and Veluru and another from Hyderabad to Chennai.

Addressing a two-day national workshop on Skills Upgradation and Prevention of Accidents organised by the South Central Railways Employees Sangh and National Federation of Indian Railwaymen, minister of state for railways, KH Muniyappa said the railways is also planning to construct railway over bridges, under bridges in place of crossings to avoid accidents and this work will be completed by 2014.

The other proposed corridors are from Bengaluru to Chennai, Mumbai to Chennai, Delhi to Hyderabad and Delhi to Chennai. The survey for the same through a consultant, is underway.

The minister also said there are pressures from various quarters to hike charges and that the matter was under discussion. “Around 2,000 to 3,000 deaths are registered every year in train accidents and we are looking to bring the numbers down to zero,” Muniyappa said. He added that they are planning to introduce an advanced signaling system, presently used in Konkan Railway, in places in the country to reduce accidents. He said the railways, has set a target to construct 20,000 new railway lines by 2020.

The MMTS second phase works in Hyderabad will begin from February 2012 and the state government is ready to bear two-thirds of the entire project cost of Rs 600 crore. He appreciated the AP government for coming forward to bear 50 percent cost of new railway projects.

The Railway Minister instructed to follow a ‘Zero Compromise’ Policy o*n Safety so as to ensure that no accidents take place by meticulously following the established systems and safe methods of working.He exhorted the officials to keep ‘customer’ as the focal point and take into account the needs of customers before taking up any work/scheme.He emphasized o*n the need for more research and innovation in Railway Systems, so as to have a thorough up-gradation and modernization of infrastructure to herald railways into a new generation of reforms. He interacted with the senior officers present and had a meaningful interaction o*n various suggestions o*n further improvement of Railways.

After the Review Meeting, Shri Dinesh Trivedi inspected the Secunderabad Railway Station.He had a close look at the various passenger amenities provided o*n Platforms including the Passenger Information Systems, ATVMs, Signage Boards, Waiting Halls and Ticket Counters, etc.He later inspected Platform No.1 and had a look at the recently completed track apron works, cleanliness and maintenance of station premises.
