In a major boost to the track doubling works in the Ettumanoor and Chingavanam corridor, the Railway overbridge (RoB) along NH 183 at Kanjikkuzhy is set to be thrown open to traffic this week.
According to officials, works on the structure are over while the curing period of the concrete slabs will end by Tuesday.
“The mandatory interval for the concrete works connecting the road and the bridge to get set will be over in a couple of days and the structure will be declared operational soon afterwards,” said an officer.

The 46-metre long and 14-metre wide bridge will have footpaths and crash barriers on both sides.
The Railways commenced works on the project in June last year but it ran into delays due to several reasons.
On completion of the bridge, the Railways plan to set up two additional tracks underneath while the existing track will be used for shunting operations.
Meanwhile, the authorities have expedited the works for the second RoB along Mother Teresa Road near Rubber Board headquarters.
The works are progressing here to relocate the pipeline network of the Kerala Water Authority (KWA) that pass through the existing structure.
The cumulative cost for rebuilding the RoBs at Kanjikkuzhy and Rubber Board RoBs, is estimated to be ₹16 crore.
The completion of the construction of two bridges in Kottayam is expected to give major boost to the doubling works as the State Government has already handed over entire land acquired for the Ettumanoor-Chingavanam corridor.
Doubling works in the stretch have gathered pace with works progressing in six different locations along the stretch.
According to sources, it would take the Railways at least 24 months to complete the works on the stretch as against the earlier deadline of March 31, 2020.
The doubling works along the stretch involves clearing of a couple of rocky hills at Muttambalam and strengthening of the marshy ground between Kodoor and Chingavanam.

A Southern Railway delegation along with Thomas Chazhikadan, MP, on Monday reviewed the progress of the renovation works on the Kottayam railway station and the track doubling works between Ettumanur and Chingavanam.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Chazhikadan urged Railways to expedite construction of the second entrance and the multi-level parking system at the Kottayam railway station.
The Central government has allocated ₹20 crore to renovate the station here, which will sport the indigenous Kerala design on completion of the work.
project also envisages developing the circulation area, besides renovating the pilgrim shelter.
The team also visited the stretch between Ettumanur and Chingavanam where track-doubling works are under way. The MP also urged the State government to expedite the acquisition of the 3.99 hectares of land required for completing the project.
Railways were asked to complete construction of the railway overbridges (ROB) at Mulanthuruthy, Karithas and Kuruppanthara.
The department has already set aside ₹29.94 crore and ₹19.96 crore for constructing the ROBs at Mulanthuruthy and Karithas respectively.
The cost of constructing the ROB at Kuruppanthara is estimated at ₹20 crore.
Meanwhile, directions have been issued to concrete the underpass at Samkarnthi to avoid waterlogging .
Officials said the department would be able to complete the track-doubling works in two years after acquisition of land.
The district administration has announced its plans to complete the much-delayed acquisition of land in the Ettumanur-Chingavanam corridor by invoking the Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act (Larra Act)-2013 before September 30.
Clearing the delay in acquisition of land in the 16.6 km stretch is crucial in completing the double-laning of the 620-km Mangaluru Junction-Kottayam-Thiruvananthapuram Central corridor.
The railway delegation was represented by Southern Railway Deputy Chief Engineer (constructions) R. Nandagopan, and Assistant Executive Engineer Babu Zacharias and Haridasan.

Safety inspection of Changanassery-Chingavanam stretch
The much-awaited commissioning of the double line section between Changanassery and Chingavanam in Kottayam is set to take place before Christmas with the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) slated to inspect the stretch soon.
Officials said here on Monday that construction of the 10-km stretch was almost complete except the signalling work, which could be taken up after the inspection by the CRS. With this trains would be able to cut down on the running time by 10 minutes in the Ernakulam-Kottayam-Kayamkulam section.
preliminary inspection will be followed by a statutory inspection of electrification and speed trial. Once the CRS accords authorisation, the Railway Board will decide on the date of commissioning,” said a senior railway officer.
While the constructed speed of the section is 110 km per hour, the department expects the CRS to approve a maximum speed of up to 90 km per hour.
“The section speed could be raised at a later stage based on the annual track report by the CRS and by evaluating the weather conditions,” the official added.
Meanwhile, doubling work on the 8-km stretch between Kuruppanthara and Ettumanur has entered the second stage with Railways already completing the signalling integration work with the opening of an additional platform at the Ettumanur station.
The second phase of work, which focusses on connectivity, is expected to be completed in a couple of months and the stretch will be opened to traffic by March.
With this, doubling will be completed in around 97 of the total 115-km Ernakulam-Kottayam-Kayamkulam section.
Running time
The completion of track doubling work in the Kottayam section is crucial for introducing new trains and cutting down on running time.
However, the doubling of the 19-km Chingavanam-Ettumanur section is slated to extend well beyond the target date of March 2020 owing to a dispute over imposition of Income Tax on the compensation for land acquisition.
Railways seek to take over four hectares of land from 200 property owners spread across three villages for setting up a second line along the stretch.

Whenever any doubling or electrification was done, all newspaper reports used to say that running tine will be cut down.But even after all that being done, ironically running time has kept on increasing and no significant benefit has happened for passengers
