Indian Railways: Why new coaching terminal at Nemom in Kerala will be a gamechanger for the region
Indian Railways: The new terminal at Nemom in the Thiruvananthapuram Division will help in decongesting the already overloaded current coaching terminals.
Indian Railways New Coaching Facility: When it comes to punctuality of trains, the capacity of the line and availability of the coaching facility is considered among the key factors. Over the years, the Indian Railways networks have been overburdened with the introduction of more number of trains and slow development of infrastructures. However, in the last few years, the Indian Railways has worked aggressively on both fronts. In another similar move, Minister of Railways Piyush Goyal has laid the foundation stone for New Coaching Terminal at Nemom in Kerala.
Goyal had said during the occasion that the NDA government has consistently focused on development for all areas in the country. "Focus has been on large scale infrastructure creation both physical and social," he added.
Why at Nemom?
Thiruvananthapuram Central is an important station in Kerala and maintenance facilities are being provided at Kochuveli station. Thus, there is an urgent need to develop Coaching Terminal at Nemom to serve the people of the area which would reduce congestion at Thiruvananthapuram Central station.
How will it help?
The new coaching terminal may prove to be a gamechanger for route. The new terminal at Nemom in the Thiruvananthapuram Division will help in decongesting the already overloaded current coaching terminals. With the commencement of work at this new coaching terminal, Indian Railways can start providing a large number of new trains which will either originate or terminate in Thiruvananthapuram. Therefore, it will also help in eliminating the waitlisted tickets on the route over time with the introduction of new trains.
Nemom is considered ideal for origination/destination of trains. Coaching lines, Pit lines, Stabling lines with shunting neck, integrated sick lines facilities, RRI panel & associated building, connectivity to the proposed Vizhinjam International Container Terminal and booking office are proposed to be provided for operating trains to/from Nemom.
