Tuticorin Chamber of Commerce & Industry draw high Hopes for more Rail projects
Tuticorin (TN): Residents of Tuticorin and traders are expecting more rail infrastructure to connect Madurai and other cities since Tuticorin has been announced as one of the Smart Cities in India by the Centre, according to D.R.Kodeeswaran, Secretary, Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
This dream project would create a platform to improve the industrial growth in the southern region of Tamil Nadu since a strong industrial growth is envisaged from the Madurai-Tuticorin industrial corridor, Mr. Kodeeswaran told here on Sunday.
Moreover, the intercity railway link between Tuticorin and Madurai had become the most sought after service among people here, he said. “Since Madurai happens to be the next biggest city falling within 150 km and people have lots of business and other purposes in frequenting Madurai, all are looking forward to this development,” he said.
Doubling of rail track between Tuticorin and Madurai was gaining significance as it would ensure free flow of cargo traffic from Tuticorin seaport and passenger rail traffic.
To tide over delay of trains due to single track, doubling of rail track was essentially required, he reiterated.
