SHRI S. JAGATRAKSHAKAN (ARAKKONAM): The railway line between Arakkonam and Kathpadi is one of the busiest lines and a lot of commuters travel daily between Arakkonam and Kathpadi. But there is no EMUs or Shuttle Service between these stations despite public demand for a long time.
Similarly, a railway line is most urgently needed between Kathpadi and Villipuram, via Aroct and Cheyyar and, therefore, a survey is required to be made for a broad gauge railway line between Kathpadi to Villipuram via Aroct and Cheyyar.
I would, therefore, urge upon the hon. Railway Minister to introduce Shuttle Service between Arakkonam and Kathpadi and order a new railway line for Kathpadi and Villipuram.
