Krishnapatnam: With the charging of Krishnapatnam port traction line two days ago, the Electrical Engineering Department of South Central Railway has paved the way for faster movement of freight traffic. The transportation of goods i.e. fertilizers, food grains, coal and other commodities from this port is no longer a time taking exercise as 14.468 track km line has been energised. It helps in not only moving the goods faster but also handling a larger volume of freight in both ways.
According to an official release here on Monday, the energy station of the 25KV overhead equipment and R&D, coal and fertilizer yards were fully energised. Their electrification enables the vendors and other consignees to book their goods and get them moving at a faster pace than what was possible earlier.
