Shri Arif Mohammed Khan, Hon’ble Governor of Kerala, Shri Pinarayi Vijayan, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Kerala, Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw, Hon’ble Union Minister for Railways, Communications, Electronics & IT, Shri Abdurahiman, Hon’ble Minister for Sports, Minorities Welfare, Wakf, Haj, Post & Telegraph and Railways, Govt. of Kerala, Adv.Antony Raju, Hon’ble Minister for Transport, Govt. of Kerala, Dr. Sashi Tharoor, Hon’ble Member of Parliament and other dignitaries participated in the event.


Hon’ble PM dedicated to the Nation, the electrified 179 Km section between Palakkad-Palani-Dindigul commissioned at a cost of Rs.242 Crores.   One of the significant sections interlinking the states of Kerala and Tamil NaduPalakkad-Palani-Dindigul section has been brought under electrified traction to offer environment-friendly modes of transportation and attain zero carbon emissions.   Electrification will pave the way for introduction of MEMU services and will bring about seamless connectivity providing faster access to pilgrimage and tourism destinations.


Further, Hon’ble PM  laid the foundation stone for redevelopment of three major railway stations in Kerala – Thiruvananthapuram, Varkala Sivagiri and Kozhikode at a total cost of Rs.1140 Crore.  Thiruvananthapuram, Varkala Sivagiri and Kozhikode will be placed o­n the map of world-class stations sporting spectacular modern look blended with culture and heritage values of Kerala, aesthetically designed interiors with improved ambience, landscaped exterior and other airport-like facilities. All these three stations will sport futuristic world-class amenities  promising to meet the requirements of the next 40 years with seamless movement of passengers by separate Arrival and Departure corridors, Multi level vehicle parkings and multi-modal connectivity.


In addition, Hon’ble PM laid the foundation stone for comprehensive development of Thiruvananthapuram area at a cost of Rs.156 Crores.  This includes development of Trivandrum’s satellite terminal Kochuveli and the new additional terminal at Nemom.  o­nce the project is complete, there will be hassle-free flow of rail traffic from all the three terminals greatly decongesting Thiruvananthapuram Central and thereby augmenting the terminal capacity and paving way for introduction of more train services.


Nemom Terminal will facilitate handling of train services both towards Ernakulam & beyond and also towards Nagercoil / Madurai.  It will provide additional stabling facility and reduce detention to trains at signals short of Thiruvananthapuram Central.  The two additional Platforms and o­ne additional Stabling line  at Kochuveli will facilitate handling of additional trains from Kochuveli Terminal

Apart from the above projects, Hon’ble PM laid the foundation stone for increasing the sectional speed of Thiruvananthapuram – Shoranur (326.83 Km) section at a cost of Rs.381 Crores.  o­nce the sectional speed of the section is increased, Kerala rail passengers can look forward to much faster trains and reduced travel time with faster connectivity to the major destinations in Kerala.

Earlier in the morning, Hon’ble Prime Minister flagged off the first Vande Bharat Express in the state of Kerala between Thiruvananthapuram - Kasaragod from Thiruvananthapuram Railway station.
