South Central Railway (SCR) has begun the process of cutting down the passenger load at the Secunderabad railway station. To begin with, they have extended the route of Machilipatnam- Secunderabad daily super-fast express to Bidar railway station since February 2.

The extension of the train service has opened a direct link between the suburbs of Hyderabad and Vijayawada, bringing cheers to scores of Vijayawada natives living in places such as like Kukatpalli. From now on, people going to Vijayawada can board the train from Zaheerabad, Vikarabad and

Lingampalli stations, instead of coming all the way to Secunderabad.

Sources said that the Machilipatnam super-fast express is one of the most sought after trains to reach Vijayawada as it ferries nearly 1,500 passengers daily. Though there is an intercity train between Secunderabad and Vijayawada, people mostly prefer the superfast express.

“Secunderabad remains busy with other trains when the super-fast express is scheduled, so its extension seeks to reduce the pressure on the terminal,” said an official.
