Railway clarifies that proposed doubling of track is in the interest of public

No new area is being taken for laying Railway line

Will not have any additional impact o­n environment

Maximum care will be taken during construction of line

Similar infrastructure development projects being executed all over country including ecologically sensitive North Eastern region

Environment impact assessment study got done by Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru

South Western Railway has conducted an o­nline press conference o­n doubling of Railway track between Castlerock and Vascodagama today. The conference has been conducted by Shri P.K. Mishra, Additional General Manager, South Western Railway. Shri P.K. Kshatriya, Chief Project Manager, RVNL; Shri S.K. Jha, Additional Divisional Railway Manager of Hubballi Division were present. Smt E. Vijaya, Deputy General Manager and Chief Public Relations Officer gave a brief introduction of the project and how improved connectivity can benefit state of Goa. Before planning work, Environment Impact Assessment study has been got conducted by IISc, Bengaluru

Existing single line railway track between Castle Rock to Vasco-da-gama in the state of Goa was laid more than a century back.

Ministry of Railways has sanctioned project of doubling of Railway track between Hospet (Karnataka) and Vasco-da-gama(Goa) (342 km) in the year 2010-11 at a cost of Rs.2127Cr. The project has since been nearly completed in the state of Karnataka except 10 Km between Unkal and Hubballi, which is targeted for commissioning by Mar.2021. About 7 km track between Madgoan- Majorda in the state of Goa has also been doubled. Remaining stretch of about 90 Km is in State of Goa,where works are awarded for doubling and are being taken up after ensuring necessary clearances.

Doubling of the said section will be a game changer for the state of Goa, taking the development to new heights, by giving impetus to trade and enabling easier and faster passenger movement. Existing rail network is constrained due to single line long ghat section severely limiting train running capacity.

While average section running time in plain section is 8 to 10 minutes, it takes 70-80 minutes to pass the critical ghat section reducing sectional capacity to 15 % of sections in plains.

Moreover the ghat section is extremely landslide prone and being single line the state remains frequently cutoff during rainy season.

In view of above constraints, it is imperative that double line rail connectivity be  provided  for improving mobility and all weather rail link in the region.

The following advantages have been elaborated.

         More number of passenger trains,

         Better intrastate connectivity

         Boost to trade and commerce among adjoining states

         Increased tourist inflow

         Augmenting infrastructure at intermediate stations

         Relaxing bottlenecks of ghat section operation

         Improving passenger amenities at stations

         Remodelling yards to deal 24 coaches

Construction of  5 Road Over Bridges and 3 Road Under bridges for enabling road traffic

(detailed benefits listed in annexure)

         o­n being asked about the purpose of doubling of track, it has been informed by Railway officials that the same is to strengthen connectivity to facilitate easy and faster movement of public ,in most energy efficient way.

         When queried o­n quantity of coal that will be transported ,Shri Mishra stated that presently Emphasis is being given for usage of environment friendly sources of energy /resources for power generation.

         As a result ,the use of coal is gradually reducing and share of non-conventional energy sources is gradually increasing .  In the year 2015-16, SWR carried 12 Million Tonnes of coal which has reduced to 9 Million Tonnes in the year 2019-20 showing a reduction of 25% with in span of 4 years.

         As doubling is being done pre dominantly in Railway land, there is no additional impact o­n environment. Care will be taken to ensure least disturbance during construction and alignment will be decided to avoid trees to the extent possible.

         Alignment is being planned in such a way that not even a single building will be affected fully for the doubling project.

         o­nly compound wall in very few houses (less than 12) in stretch, may be affected and Railway is trying to avoid even this.

Finally it is assured by Smt Vijaya that all stake holders will be taken into confidence, genuine concerns of public will be addressed. Execution of work will be done o­nly by liaisioning  with State officials and obtaining necessary approvals and clearances from the District Administration and Government of Goa.

Advantages of Proposed doubling of Castle Rock to Vasco da gama

Boosting trade and Commerce:

This is a critical railway link connecting state of Goa to Southern states in general and Karnataka in particular. Strengthening the infrastructure by doubling will boost trade and commerce between these adjoining States. Essential commodities being supplied to Goa from hinterland of Karnataka can be switched over to energy efficient and all-weather rail transport.

Running of more passenger trains:

At present, o­nly 6i.e 3 pairs of Express and Passenger trains are running every day, in this stretch. For increasing section capacity, so as to introduce additional passenger train services, doubling is a pre requisite. There is huge demand for introducing of new passenger trains from representatives of public connecting Goa with Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, which can be fulfilled o­nly by completing doubling of Railway track.

In addition to being single line, the ghat section between Castlerock and Kulem has severe operational restrictions imposed Owing to safety considerations. Because of this reason, the actual capacity of running trains is even lesser than normal charted capacity of a single line section. Under doubling, the necessary works for relaxing bottle necks will be done.

Increasing tourist footfall:

In 2019,approximately 80 Lakh tourists visited the state of Goa of which around 40 % ,i.e., 32 lakh have travelled by train. After completion of doubling, number of tourists using train services is expected to increase manifold, due to improved connectivity and additional number of passenger trains. It is anticipated that domestic tourism will witness unprecedented surge post COVID and to facilitate more and more tourists visit Goa making Goa the “Most preferred Tourist Destination”, Railway infrastructure shall be equipped to handle more number of trains.

Many intermediate stations in this route such as Sanvordem-Curchorem have huge untapped tourist potential.By extending better Rail  connectivity to these stations, the hidden potential  can be unlocked giving scope to generating more places of tourist interest ,there by augmenting revenue to the state of Goa.

Intra State Connectivity:    

Hitherto, Intra state movement in Goa is solely through by Road .By developing Railway network taking up doubling of track, cheaper and faster alternative of transport will be available for public that eases movement within the state of Goa. By providing connectivity to towns such as Kulem, Kalem, Sanvordem-Curchorem from Vasco and Madgoan, local economy at these places will prosper.

Improving facilities at Stations:

Railways is not able to introduce 24 coach length Mail/Express trains in this section ,as existing platform lengths are suitable for handling trains with 18-20 coaches o­nly. Extension of platform will be possible o­nly with yard remodelling under doubling.

Majority of Stations in the state of Goa (Dabolim, Sankval, Cansaulim, Majorda, Chadorgoa, Sanvordem, Kalem, Kulem) were not provided with suitable passenger amenities such as Platform shelters, Foot over bridges, Platform toilets, Ramp for Disabled passengers etc.during construction. All these works can be taken up under doubling , along with extension of platforms.

Construction of Road Over Bridges for uninterrupted road traffic:

As the existing Railway track was laid more than 100 years ago, many towns have developed o­n both sides of Railway track, especially between Kulem and Madgoan Railway stations.  Residents of these areas are facing lot of inconvenience in crossing of Railway track and have to travel many kilometres for level crossings.  Keeping this aspect in view, it has been planned to construct 3 new sub-ways at Kamral, Curchorem-Sanvordem, Gandhinagar/Chander Goa and 5 new Road Over Bridges- 3 near Kulem,, 1 at Kalem and 1 at Saho-Jose-Da-Areal along with doubling. Also two narrow Arch Bridges will be widened.

Strategic Importance:

            As Naval command at Goa is strategically located in Arabian Sea, to meet the need of moving troops and materials at short notice in case of emergencies, good Railway network is of importance from Defence point of view. Marmagoa Port is a major port of country and to initiate port led development in the surrounding region as planned under “ Sagar Mala “ programme  ,better connectivity to the port assumes significance.

Conservation of Greenery:

     Laying of track for double line is proposed to be done, right next to the existing Railway track o­nly ensuring no impact o­n flora and fauna will be there o­n this account .No land in new area  is being acquired. Also ,the work will be done within the railway land, minimising the need for land acquisition. Railway is o­ne of the pioneers in conservation of environment and taking up of initiatives towards greener planet. More over upcoming electrification will make Railways Carbon neutral In the last 5 years Railway has planted 33,000 saplings in the jurisdiction of Goa and will continue to work with  same commitment .With minimum/negligible impact o­n environment, reliable and futuristic transport network for state of Goa will be developed.

Historical perspective:

During the initial construction of meter gauge line in this route, it was originally planned to do earth work and tunnels suitable for double line. However, the line was to connect to British Frontier India  and to be extended upto Bellary o­n single line .Hence, the foresight of the planners at that stage could not materialize ,for maintaining uniformity of Railway line.

Getting o­n the Development bus :

Projects aimed at improving infrastructure are being executed throughout the country across all states. Works for laying of New railway lines are being done in ecologically sensitive regions of North East etc. by exercising due care .The Vision 2024 for Railways envisages having minimum double lined and electrified Rail network in all routes . State of Goa shall not miss the development bus and rather shall lead in implantation of sanctioned projects in the interest of State and Nation as a whole. The vision of Vibrant Goa with flourishing economy can be realised o­nly by having Rail network that will take care of transport requirements of tomorrow efficiently

FREIGHT LOADING TOUCHING NEW HEIGHTS IN SWR - RECORDS 3.22 MILLION TONES IN OCT

With thrust given in o­n becoming easy, quick, economic and efficient transport for freight, loading has shown a remarkable surge over Indian Railways of late.  After a relative slowdown during the first four months of the Lock down necessitated due to pandemic, freight loading has picked up o­n SWR consistently from Aug. 2020. The zone has been steadily loading over 3.0 Million Tonnes every month since then. 

After the setting up of the Business Development Units (BDU) o­n SWR both at the Zonal and Divisional Levels in Apr. 2020, the freight loading has picked up. A slew of freight incentive schemes and concessions were announced to give boost to freight loading and attract customers to use Railways as their preferred mode of transport of goods and to bring more and more commodities into freight basket of Railways.   Interactions are also being done by these BDUs with prospective customers for roping in additional freight traffic.

During this financial year, SWR has loaded 19.51 million tonnes of freight up to Oct 2020.  In spite of the restrictions due to the pandemic, SWR has so far loaded 5.035 Million Tonnes of Coal to ensure uninterrupted power generation for the plants in Karnataka.  The Zone continued to load Hot Rolled Coil Steel from the steel plants and 4.768 Million Tonnes of Steel were loaded till Oct 20 during this financial year.  Despite the lockdown due to pandemic SWR could load 10,000 + Tonnes of food grains and maintained the food chain in Karnataka.

During the month of Sept and Oct 2020, SWR has surpassed the freight loading target set by Railway Board and also corresponding figures of last year. During the month of Sept 2020, SWR has loaded 3.03 Million Tonnes of freight which is 4.48 % more that the corresponding period of last year. Similarly during the month of Oct 2020, SWR has loaded 3.22 Million Tonnes of freight which is 8.61% more that the corresponding period of last year.

SWR is striving to improve facilities and infrastructure at all loading and unloading terminals by improving approach roads, provision of better lighting, restrooms for workers etc to encourage loading.  Monitoring of running of freight trains and ensuring availability of wagons for movement of freight is being done at highest level. The Zone has been able to achieve turnaround in loading duly observing all Covid related protocols like social distancing, wearing of face masks etc.

The highlight of this year's freight loading is quantum jump in transportation of automobiles from Dodballapur, Penukonda, Kadakola, Hosur etc. o­n the average o­ne rake of New Millennium Goods has been transported from SWR every day of the month during October.

Shri Ajay Kumar Singh, GM/SWR has informed that freight operations are being ramped up and all out efforts are being made to match last year's loading by the end of current quarter. The zone is confident that with persistent efforts SWR will be able to surpass the loading targets set by Railway in the last quarter.
