Track electrification work nearing completion.
The ongoing track electrification work in the Shoranur-Mangalore section may be almost complete but the actual commissioning of the work in the Kannur-Mangalore stretch has to wait for nearly two more years.
The work will start only after the traction substations for supply of power are constructed at six locations.
The track electrification work in the Shoranur-Mangalore section is under the Chennai project unit of the Central Organisation for Railway Electrification (CORE), Allahabad.
Of the total 215-km track electrification under the Chennai project, the State alone has 178 kms of the track (Shoranur-Mangalore route). Here, the electrification work is nearing completion.
