Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

In a bid to revamp the Vasco-Kulem stretch of the South Western Railways, the rail authorities have buckled up efforts for the double-tracking project. While the plans were stalled due to the reverse migration of the labourers caused by the pandemic, the works have been revived now, in an accelerated mode. As per reports, the second track between Kulem and Majorda has been established and the Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd. will try to complete the interventions by March 2022.

Officials converge efforts for quick commissioning of the tracks

Reportedly, the trial runs for the second track will be organised soon. Further, reports state that the construction of the stretch from Majorda to Vasco is faced with difficulties due to opposition from the local residents. While citizens feel that the ongoing scheme is a source of threat for the regional biodiversity, the officials are trying to chalk a map for the plan ahead.

Due to this, delays can be expected but the commissioning date of the double-tracked route in Goa will not be altered. In order to placate the residents and resolve their problems, the Deputy Collector of Mormugao is looking after the objections related to the land acquisition proposals.

Full length of the double-tracked route to be electrified

The electrification of the newly laid double-tracked route is underway. As per reports, areas that haven't been double-tracked yet will also be electrified and made operational as a single line track. Additionally, the entire stretch of the Hospet-Hubli-Tinaigat-Vasco double-tracked route will also undergo electrification, ushering a complete transformation for the route.
