SCR proposed for route change of 18561 via rayanapadu.
I feel there should be a stop at GUNADALA also as Rayanapadu is far away and also TT has slack , so 2 min halt could be made.
Trains like Garib rath, Duronto reach at odd hours on both sides and as there is no quota the users are less and can be diverted. Same is the case with cocanada, Gautami and Nanded express. For Hyderabad Vijayawada has two trains Narsapur an d MTM which leave at convenient timings and are preferred by travellers. MTM express need to be made 21 and further to 24 coaches by expanding the pitline in MTM or shifting maintainance to Bidar. Coming to Vskp KCG it acts as a intercity and hundreds of GS travellers get down and board in both the directions and sections so should not be diverted. Even Gunadala is about 6 kms from the city main residential and business centers and doesnt have proper road connectivity narrow road with level crossing will not be an alternative for popular trains like Vskp KCG. Even if developed can be used only
This is the problem with many trains going through Vijayawada...for namesake Vijayawada has somany trains passing through it for somany locations...but no proper & suffucient quota at all...we dont get quota...hence no good amount of reserved passengers and hence officials divert the trains...if that was the case then RTC doesnt run VJA HYD round the clock right..
Whatever we say...decision to divert was approved by RB..so its done
so many bridges planned on canals near Gunadala station and also the IRR has open so many options to east part of Vijayawada, so temparory halt at GALA is needed till a new satellite station is constructed.
same is the case with vskp.thats how vskp members feel when trains diverted via dvd.
still I feel 18561 Should touch BZA. may people rely on this train to go to MAS as conneting train for GT and TN express.
Its Time for Revenge !!
