Track-doubling work between Shoranur and Karakkad

Railways will undertake non-interlocked and yard-remodelling work at Shoranur junction for 28 days from April 4 in connection with track-doubling between Shoranur and Karakkad railways stations.

The doubling of the stretch will avoid detention of trains at Shoranur and Karakkad for crossing and Shoranur-Managalore junction stretch will become double line, according to Railways.

One more platform (No.7) will be available at Shoranur and it will be able to accommodate rakes with 24 coaches.
