Plea to expedite railway doubling work

By Our Staff Reporter

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, SEPT. 22. The MPs from Kerala have demanded the Union Railway Minister, Lalu Prasad, to expedite the work on doubling of Ernakulam-Kayamkulam railway line, via Kottayam.

In a memorandum submitted to Mr. Prasad during his visit to the capital on Tuesday, the MPs said that doubling of the Ernakulam-Kayamkulam line via Kottayam was imperative for the development of the State.

They said that doubling of the Shoranur-Mangalore work was in progress and the Kayamkulam-Thiruvananthapuram line had already been doubled. Now this was the only stretch that had been left to be doubled. Though work on the stretch between Ernakulam and Mulanthuruthy was in progress, it was moving at a slow pace. The doubling from Kayamkulam to Chengannur and Kayamkulam to Cheppad was yet to begin.
