BRIEF OF OPERATING DEPARTMENT

EASTERN RAILWAY/ASANSOL DIVISION

1.

GENERAL:

1.1

Asansol is the third largest city and urban agglomeration in West Bengal after Kolkata and Howrah and the 39th largest urban agglomeration in India. Asansol is located in the Burdwan District of India. According to a report released by International Institute for Environment and Development, a UK-based policy research non-governmental body, Asansol is among the 11 Indian cities in the list of 100 fastest growing cities in the world with a rank of 42.

ASANSOL DIVISION is one of the premier divisions of Indian Railways. This division was established in 1925. The division is at the bifurcation of the Grand Chord Route via Gaya and the Main line route via Patna and is rightly referred as the heart of the Eastern Railway’s operations. The division is having a total route Km. of 565 and Track Km. of 2087.24. Excavation of coal was 1st started in India near Raniganj by Prince Dwarakanath Tagore under the name of Carr and Tagore Company, which eventually became Bengal Coal Company. Later on, it became the centre of expansion of coal loading through railways.

In the steam era, coal for all steam locos of India was procured and transported from this division.  

1st recreational institute in India was set up by the British in 1878 at Asansol. It got the name of 'European Institute' in 1915. In 1925 it was renamed as 'Durand Institute' after Sir Mortimer Durand, the architect of the famous Durand line between Afghanistan, Tibet and India. Now we call it 'Vivekananda Institute' from 1987.

Erstwhile all IRTS officers’ practical training centre ROTC was in operation at Asansol till 1971 batch.

The territorial jurisdiction of the division also extends over branch lines such as Andal - Sainthia including Bhimgara - Palasthali, Madhupur - Giridih, Jasidih - Baidyanathdham, Deoghar - Dumka, and Andal - Topsi - Baraboni - Sitarampur.


1.3   

The division comprises of ‘A’ route, a quadruple electrified section between Khana to Sitarampur with MACL signalling, a double line automatic signalling territory between Sitarampur to Chotoambona. On ‘B’ route, a double line section between Sitarampur - Jhajha with electrified branch single line between Jasidih - Baidyanathdham section and non-electrified branch single line between Madhupur-Giridih and Jasidih – Dumka. On ‘E’ route a twin single line working on electrified territory between Andal-Pandabeswar and double line non-electrified territory between Pandabeswar - Sainthia with MACL signalling.

The interchange points for the purpose of freight operations over Asansol division are Pradhankhanta with Dhanbad division of E.C. Railway, Jhajha with Danapur division of E.C. Railway, Mohishila and Burnpur with Adra division of S.E.Railway, Khana, Jhaptardhal and Sainthia with Howrah division on Eastern Railway. Total interchange during 2013-14 is 8544.5 EWUs/day which is 3.06% more than 8290.8 EWUs/day of 2012-13. Among these, during the last 05 years, interchange at PKA and MOH points has gone up enormously. At PKA and MOH points the same in 2013-14 was 40.3and 32.9 trains/day respectively in comparison to 32.8 and 23.6 trains/day of 2007-08. This has been achieved without any further line capacity augmentation.

3.

NEW ACHIEVEMENTS : -

1st Private Freight Terminal in the eastern region has come up at Durgapur under the name of Palogix Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd. They have also proposed to set up another PFT at Giridih.

Long haul trains are being run successfully on regular basis from Andal yard for different destinations of Indian Railways. 

A private siding for Super Smelters Ltd., taking off from Tapasi – Baraboni chord line has started operation during 2012-13 by August ’13. Another one for Shyam Sel Ltd., taking off from Tapasi has also been commissioned and yet to start operation.  

FUTURE AHEAD : -

This division will get an incremental loading traffic of 10 – 12 rakes/day with 4 – 5 rakes/day for unloading with the commissioning of the following new sidings  –

Project report for Doubling of track from Raniganj – Mejia Thermal Power Station (excluding Damodar Bridge) has got approved and layout is under consideration of the division. With the materialisation of this project, handling of 08 – 10 rakes for this power plant will be easier which is at present a major cause of concern.  

DVC with EMTA group of company is going to construct a siding for loading of coal near Pandabeswar. Almost 2.0 rakes will be loaded from this siding.

ECL has proposed for setting up a siding under the name of Sonepur Bazari Project near Ukhra which will provide an additional loading of 4.0 MTPA.

Jindal Steel has proposed for construction of a siding near Ukhra for laoding of 1.2 rakes/day of coal for Godapiasal and Salboni for their 10 MTPA Integrated Steel Plant and 1.8 MTPA Cement Plant in WBIDC Industrial Park at Salboni, West Bengal.

DVC in collaboration with Tata Power Ltd. has already set up a 1050 MW power plant near Mugma station. Railway infrastructure for the same has been finalised and under construction.

ADDITIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE IN PIPELINE : -

Work for electrification of Pandabeswar – Sanithia section is going on in full swing. It will further be extended upto Pakur via Rampurhat.

Remodelling of Sitarampur yard on ‘B’ route has got approved.  This will augment the CSR of yard lines to facilitate the supply/drawing of rakes to/from nearby colliery sidings. 

Commissioining of Kajoragram – Bakhtarnagar by-pass via fly over will enable this division to run trains from SNT end to quadruple line and vice versa without touching Andal yard.

CONSTRAINTS AND REQUIREMENTS : -

Major constraints in operation are –

Shorter loops, b) Gradients and c) Bottlenecks at UDL, DGR, ASN, MDP & JSME.

New works to be taken up –

PF No. 8 with two stabling lines to deal with originating coaching trains.

Doubling of track between KPK–MOH is the need of the hour to cater the additional requirements of the industries of ASN–DGR vicinity.

With the commissioning of new BG line between Koderma and Giridih and 3rd PFT at Giridih, remodelling of Madhupur station/yard has become a dire necessity.
