Shoranur (SRR): A high-level team led by S.K. Mittal, Commissioner of Railway Safety, Southern Circle, Bengaluru, inspected the newly electrified 84-km section between Shoranur and Kozhikode on Monday.

Beside the main line, the siding line to the goods shed at Kallayi has also been electrified.
The electrification of the oil siding yard at Feroke will be taken up soon. The approximate cost of the project is Rs.100 crore.
