Manapparai-Kalpattichatram double track commissioned

Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu on Saturday launched a number of development works for the benefit of Madurai Division from Mumbai through video-conferencing.

The Ramanathapuram MP A. Anwhar Raajha, Dindigul MP Udayakumar, Southern Railway General Manager Vashishta Johri, Divisional Railway Manager (Madurai) Neenu Itteyrah, Additional Divisional Railway Manager P.V. Murali Krishna and Madurai Collector Veera Raghava Rao witnessed the event through the video-conferencing at Madurai Railway Junction.

The officials said that as part of the Villupuram and Dindigul doubling project, 23-km stretch of doubling between Manapparai and Kalpattichatram section was completed and commissioned for traffic.

With the idea of decongesting traffic and to minimise trespass accidents, five limited use sub-ways in lieu of level-crossing gates were dedicated.

The minister launched three foot-overbridges at Sholavandan, Ambathurai and Samayanallur railway stations respectively thus enabling passengers to reach the respective platforms as well as entry and exit points easily, a press release said.
