Title: Need to provide stoppage of long-distance trains at Tirusulam Railway Station in Tamil Nadu.

 

SHRI K. N. RAMACHANDRAN (SRIPERUMBUDUR):  Tirusulam Railway Station is one of the railway stations of the Chennai Beach-Chengalpattu Section of the Chennai Suburban Railway network.  Tirusulam, which is a part of my Parliamentary Constituency, is the place where Chennai Airport is located. It is also a place where terminal station of the Chennai Metro Railway Network is being constructed which is going to connect the interior parts of Chennai city.

          But very sadly, the Ministry of Railways did not pay heed to our long-pending demand of stoppage of south-bound trains at Tirusulam Railway Station.  People from southern districts of Tamil Nadu presently get down at Tambaram Railway Station on the one side and Egmore or Mambalam Railway Station on the other side, to take flights from Chennai Airport.  This is causing undue hardship to thousands of passengers every day.

          We, the Members of Parliament, have been demanding for nearly a decade, for stoppage of long-distance trains on both directions at Tirusulam Railway Station for facilitating the air passengers but it was not acceded to by the Railways so far.

          I request the Hon'ble Railway Minister to kindly accede to the demand and provide stoppage of long-distance trains at Tirusulam on both directions.
