NCR GEARS UP TO IMPROVE PUNCTUALITY OF MAIL EXPRESS TRAINS: TAKES MULTIPLE STEPS TO ACHIEVE THE SAME

The North Central Railway, under the guidance of its General Manager, Shri M.C.Chauhan has furthergeared up to improve the punctuality of the mail/express trains o­n its system. In order to ensure the same, a number of important steps have been taken aimed at reducing reversal of trains, speeding up of trains by reducing the stoppage time at stations, and diverting goods trains in order to decongest some of the most congested sections o­n the system of NCR. In order to reduce reversal of trains, a decision has been taken to divert two pair of trains (15205/06 LJN-JBP Express, 14313/14 LTT-BE) via chord lines to avoid reversal at Manikpur and Tundla respectively. Similarly, in order to speed up trains, stoppage time of 145 trains at major stations has been curtailed. The curtailment of stoppages of these trains are very minor ranging from o­ne to two minutes per train. Even though the cut in the stoppage time appears small but it will have a quantum impact o­n punctuality as it will result in early release of platforms and reduction in detentions of trains outside stations. This will be incorporated in the new Working Time Table to be implemented With Effect From 15.08.18. Alongside these measures, goods trains are also being diverted in a bid to decongest the oversaturated Naini-Allahabad-Kanpur andJhansi-Agra-Tundla-Aligarhsections of NCR; the line capacity utilization of which stands at more than 150%.Coal carrying trains bound for Parichha and Lalitpur Thermal Power Plants are planned to be diverted via Allahabad Cheoki-Manikpur-Banda section. This will improve the mobility in the oversaturated Naini-Allahabad-Kanpur section, thereby having a positive impact o­n the punctuality of Mail/Express trains in this section. Similarly, diversion of North Eastern Railway-bound goods trains from Jhansi-Agra-Tundla-Aligarh to Jhansi-Agra-Mathura-Kasganj route is also planned. This interchange is planned to be increased to 12 trains per day from 6 at present, thereby decongesting the oversaturated Agra-Tundla-Aligarh section and improving punctuality in this section also. Speaking o­n the initiatives, GM/NCR said that NCR is taking up improvement in the punctuality of Mail/Express trains in a mission mode. We are constantly witnessing an increase in traffic of both goods and mail express trains over NCR year after year. Capacity augmentation infrastructural works and maintenance activities have also gone up substantially. “There are big challenges before us, but the entire team NCR is gearing up to meet those challenges in order to deliver safer and more punctual train services to our esteemed customers” he adds.
