Plea for trains up to Guruvayur

By Our Staff Reporter

MADURAI, JAN.8. The Madura Railway Passengers' Association has called for the extension of the Nagercoil-Coimbatore-Nagercoil passenger trains up to Guruvayur since it will be a shorter distance compared to the route taken by the Chennai-Guruvayur Express.

In a press statement, its president, S. Muthusami, said the patronage for the Nagercoil-Coimbatore-Nagercoil passengers was good and underlined the need for increasing the number of compartments.

The Chennai-Guruvayur Express was poorly patronised between Madurai and Nagercoil.

He said the Tirunelveli-Erode-Tirunelveli passenger should be extended up to Jolarpet and attached to the Mysore-Tirupati fast passenger. In view of the increasing traffic on the Nagercoil-Mumbai-Nagercoil sector and non-availability of accommodation for passengers en route, a new train should be operated between Madurai and Pune.

The frequency of the Nagercoil-Chennai-Nagercoil (special) express and the Kurla-Madurai (weekly) express trains should be increased.

The conversion of the Dindigul-Coimbatore section should be taken up along with the Madurai-Rameswaram project, he added.
