Extension of Coimbatore broad guage express train

Subscribe to Oneindia News

Coimbatore, Nov 11: The Coimbatore Consumer Cause has asked the Railway Ministry to consider the extension of an overnight broad gauge express train from Coimbatore to Rameshwaram on the Coimbatore-Erode-Karur-Madurai route. In a memorandum, its secretary, K Kathirmathiyon, said that the train service to Madurai and Rameshwaram on the meter gauage section benefiting the population from southern districts was withdrawn in view of the gauge conversion works taken up by the Railway Ministry between Dindigul and Palani. Now, meter gauge trains are running between Podanur and Dindigul Junction without any connection trains to Rameswaram.
This had resulted in a major industrial city in the Western Tamil Nadu - Coimbatore - going without any direct train connectivity with the southern districts beyond Madurai.
