The inspection forms a part of the ongoing doubling project of the Kothavalasa-Koraput-Kirandul line near Visakhapatnam. The inspection and speed trial was concluded successfully, resulting in the authorization being granted.
Despite challenging weather conditions and the remote location, the Civil Engineering, Signal and Telecom, and Electrical departments put in a tremendous amount of hard work to accomplish this. As a part of this project, various traffic facilities such as new crossovers in station yards, high-level platforms, and bridges were installed and thoroughly inspected.
