SCR zone enhances trains speed to 130 kmph

The increase in the maximum permitted speed on these sections is likely to lead to an increase in the average speed of both passengers- and goods-carrying trains.

VIJAYAWADA (Metro Rail News): Ministry of Railways has shared the fast-tracking Progress of South Central Railways via its Twitter handle.

South Central Railways has enhanced the maximum permissible speed of trains to 130 kmph in the majority sections of Secunderabad, Vijayawada & Guntakal Divisions. The Zone was able to reinforce the track and its infrastructure by removing bottlenecks in certain parts. After receiving the appropriate approval from RDSO/Lucknow in the year 2020, this infrastructure development, maintenance, and signaling activities were conducted regularly. The sectional speed of train services on both the Up and Down lines of these sections may be increased from 110 kmph to 130 kmph after major upgrading work was completed in these sections with effect from September 12th, 2022.

Secunderabad – Kazipet – Balharshah, Kazipet – Kondapalli sections of Secunderabad Division, Kondapalli – Vijayawada – Gudur of Vijayawada Division, and Renigunta – Guntakal – Wadi of Guntakal Division are the sections covered by this speed implementation idea. These sections cover the entire High-Density Route, Golden Quadrilateral, and Golden Diagonal routes of the SCR except for the part between Vijayawada and Duvvada on the Golden Diagonal route, where construction is currently progressing quickly to adopt enhanced speed.

The increase in the maximum permitted speed on these sections is likely to lead to an increase in the average speed of both passengers- and goods-carrying trains. The trains will run more punctually as a result of this. Importantly, the increased maximum speed will improve these vehicles’ sectional capacity.

Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager In-charge, SCR has complimented all the Officials and staff of Team SCR for working relentlessly to complete all the related works in the enhancement of sectional speed to 130 Kmph. He said that the increase in sectional speed helps in reducing the running time of passenger trains considerably and paves the way for the smooth operation of train services.
