Hyderabad: South Central Railway (SCR) will run more Sankranti festival specials this month to cater to the needs of passengers.
These trains will run from Secunderabad to Kakinada and Hyderabad to Narsapur. Also, while the trains that leave from Secunderabad will run towards Kazipet, Warangal, Khammam, Rayanpadu, Eluru, Tadepalligudem, Nidadavolu, Rajahmundry, Anaparti and Samalkot stations, the trains that leave from Hyderabad will stop at Nalgonda, Miryalguda, Guntur, Vijayawada, Gudivada, Kaikalur, Akividu, Bhimavaram Town, Bhimavaram and Palakollu stations.
The SCR has also informed that all the festival special trains are fully reserved and no passenger should come to stations without a confirmed ticket. “Adequate reservation counters are being operated at all the important stations,” the officials said, adding that it is a must for all passengers to wear a proper mask to travel and also maintain social distancing at stations and trains. The guidelines also state that people having symptoms such as high temperature, cough and cold are advised to desist from travelling and Covid-19 positive persons are not allowed inside the railway area or to board a train.
On the other hand, SCR on Saturday announced that it has enhanced the maximum speed to 130 kmph for 1,280 km length out of 1,612 Km in Golden Quadrilateral - Golden Diagonal (GQ-GD) route by removing bottlenecks on the section. This covers GQ-GD route over SCR, except Vijayawada - Duvvada section, where up-gradation work is in progress.
