SCR completes Record Track Renewal During FY 2023-24

South Central Railway achieved its highest-ever performance with regard to track renewal works in year by completing renewal of 649 kms over its rail network. This is the best-ever Track Renewal achieved by the Zone in any financial year, since its inception. It is also 45% more than the progress of 448 Kms achieved in FY 2022-23.  Importantly, this work has been carried out entirely through mechanisation means without involving manual methods which is also o­ne of the reasons for big achievement.

Railway tracks are backbone of railway network across facilitating seamlessmovement of both passenger and freight trains. Renewal of tracks is o­ne of the critical aspects of maintaining effiiency and safety of train operations. Complete Track Renewal Work normally involves several works like renewal of sleepers i.e., changing of old sleepers with modified wider base concrete sleepers, Renewal of rails i.e., changing of old rails with Class-I rails, laying of plain track and changing of points & crossings.Renewal of sleepers and rails is carried out by Plasser Quick Relaying System (PQRS) machines, plain track is laid by Track Relaying Train (TRT) machines and T-28 machines are used for Points & Crossings.

The Complete Track Renewal (CTR) Works o­n SCR have been undertaken through machinery. The mechanical means of track renewal has got many advantages over manual methods. Manual handling of concrete sleepers is difficult and may cause damage to concrete sleepers. In addition, the initial speed restrictions after carryng out the track renewal works is lesser when done through mechanical means than when compared to manual means i.e., 30 Kmph instead of 20 Kmph.

This inturn helps not o­nly helps in reducing the time period for normal speed at faster rate but is also relatively more beneficial for maintaing average speed of the trains. Further, it also helps in lesser utilisation of time for carrying out maintenance work, while also avoiding loose material along the track.

The track renewal works across the  Zone were carried out by meticulous planning and effciecnt coordination by all the related branches. Sections requiring track renewal were identified in advance and machine and manpower deployment was done so as to get maximum output within the shortest time period. The General Manager appreciated the work done by the Engineering team in achieving this milestone. He advised the Officials to plan for the current financial year also so that the good work done o­n this front.
