Rly should plans kankariya terminal for south bound trains @ kankariya yard
Absolutely Correct... There is a lot of space available and south and mumbai, pune bound trains can easily ply over congestion free....But i think the only problem may be the zoo nearby...as in case the terminus noise and people movement would be for almost 24 hrs which authorities may not permit as the zoo is in nearby vicinity.
