Chief Minister K Rosaiah, with the press of a button at Rail Nilayam in Secunderabad, flagged off the Tirupati-Guntakal train service on Tuesday.

The flagging off ceremony, via video link, was witnessed by Union Minister of State for Railways Muniyappa at Pakala.

Addressing the gathering, Rosaiah thanked Union Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee for allotting new railway lines, trains and facilities in the Southern Zone of the country, the South Central Railways, for the first time during the last 50 years.

The track was converted from meter gauge to broad gauge.

At Pakala, Muniyappa said that the new broad-gauge from Meter Guage track between Pakala in Chittoor district and Guntakal in Anantapur district would substantially enhance rail connectivity to places of tourist and pilgrim interest in and around the areas like Kadiri and Prashanthi Nilayam. He said that this would also ease the heavy flow on the Gooty-Renigunta lines.

The SCR is working on plans to introduce a new bi-weekly train between Secunderabad and Tirupati via Pakala and Dharmavaram, which will come as a boon to the people of the major towns on the section such as Pakala, Madanapalle, Kadiri.

8 new trains, 3 passenger trains, 4 Bharat Thirth trains, one Duranto train, one Matrubhoomi train, and 2 each of MEMU and DEMU trains originating or passing through the State have been announced, Muniyappa said.
