Remodelled Gangapur City Yard to facilitate high-speed run of trains on the Delhi-Mumbai route

Earlier, trains running on the Mumbai-Delhi route were subjected to Permanent Speed Restrictions of 70 kmph at the 40 year old yard.

The services of Indian Railways along the Delhi-Mumbai route will now race through a speed of 130 kmph, facilitating rapid travel between the two cities. This development has been made possible with the completion of the Ganagapur City Yard remodeling project, last month. The project reached its last leg in July.

Upgrades at the Gangapur City Yard

The remodelling of the Gangapur City Yard was implemented to eliminate the 70 km per hour PSR here. Reportedly, the restricted speed was primarily caused due to the presence of old reverse curves. These have been removed by cut and connection along with several other upgrades here.

The revamped model now boasts of four replaced turnouts by the use of T-28 machines. Besides, tamping of turnout and plain tracks was also enabled here by using UNIMAT machines. Modern surveying techniques were utilised here to ensure that the yard alignment was fit for trains running at the speed of 130 km per hour.

Meanwhile, a new centralised panel interlocking system has been established. The end cabin panel were been wiped clean and in place of this, a new battery room has been made. A new Integrated Power Supply (IPS) and relay room at the central location have been cast here. Besides the Mumbai-Delhi line, provisions for reception and dispatch of trains to Ganapur City -Dausa New Line have also been made.

Developed in coordination with all the departments of the Kota Division, this line is also equipped with 4 km new wiring and 10 OHE masts. As per reports, additional 5 OHE portals and 65 brackets have also been installed at the yard.
