Telangana received its first Oxygen Express on Sunday, which brought 124.26 tonnes of liquid medical oxygen.

The oxygen was received at the Sanath Nagar Goods Complex yesterday in five filled tankers, which were sent for filling to Angul, Odisha from Secunderabad on April 28.

The Oxygen Express, which is a part of the initiative to supply oxygen to various states in need, owing to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, covered a distance of 1,334 km in 32 hours, in a green corridor identified by the railways for the uninterrupted movement of these trains.

The train travelled at an average speed of 42 kmph, considering the safety aspects regarding carrying liquid oxygen – a cryogenic cargo. Additionally, route mapping was done to ensure the movement was smooth with regards to curves and adequate height clearance.

Operating Oxygen Express trains on the request of various state governments all over the country, Indian Railways is providing a safe, secure, hassle-free and fast transportation to various parts pan-India.

The second Oxygen Express from Telangana, carrying empty tankers, has already reached the loading station and will arrive in Telangana soon.

Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, South Central Railways, appreciated the Secunderabad Division for the prompt operation of Oxygen Express trains and for operating these trains without any detention. He also advised all divisions to be proactive to meet the needs of any state governments for these trains.
