Route relay interlocking system installed, trains to run on time

NAGPUR: The Nagpur division of Central Railway commissioned its advanced route relay interlocking (RRI) system on Wednesday to remove obsolete diamond crossing at Howrah end. The trains are expected to run on their scheduled time from Thursday.

The work was completed by obtaining special traffic block on Wednesday from 2am to 6am. "The new RRI has been successfully commissioned without any problems. The work was done 10 hours ahead of schedule. It is biggest RRI system across the Central Railway," said P D Patil, PRO of Central Railway.
The new system started slowly. Due to human error there was problem in sequence in Ajni. There was trouble in advance starter which was sorted out immediately. In 'D' cabin there was complexity in block instrument that was also sorted out in time, Patil said.
Due to the RRI work, at least 17 mail/express trains arrived around 2 to 3 hours behind scheduled time. The Mumbai-Gondia Vidarbha Express and Kolhapur-Gondia Maharashtra Express were not terminated at Nagpur and ran up to Gondia.
The Railway Board chairman Vinay Mittal and general manager Subodh Kumar Jain have congratulated divisional railway manager (DRM) Brijesh Dixit for commissioning the RRI in such short time.
