R. Rajaram

TIRUCHI: With electrification work having been completed in the Tiruchi–Dindigul broad gauge section, the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) will inspect the 94-kilometre section shortly.

Southern Railway has already begun to operate goods trains hauled by electric engines up to Dindigul from March 26 onwards after the electrified section was commissioned.

The Central Organisation for Railway Electrification (CORE), which has carried out the project, has requested the CRS to inspect the Tiruchi – Dindigul electrified section to obtain his mandatory safety clearance to operate passenger trains hauled by electric locomotives.

A top official of Railway Electrification, Chennai told The Hindu on Tuesday that the CRS would conduct the inspection on April 25. Passenger trains hauled by electric engines could be operated up to Dindigul only after obtaining mandatory clearance from the CRS, he added.

The engine change over of goods trains hauled by electric locomotives is right now being done at Dindigul Junction, while the loco change over of some passenger trains is being done at Tiruchi.

The Tiruchi – Dindigul electrification work is part of the electrification project that has been taken up from Tiruchi to Madurai covering a distance of 162 kilometres.

The total project cost for electrifying the Tiruchi – Dindigul - Madurai broad gauge section is Rs. 162 crore with sub stations at Vaiyampatti, Dindigul and Koodal Nagar. Over 2,000 electrical masts have been erected between Tiruchi and Dindigul as part of the project.
