New Goods Shed to be Opened at Ullal to Handle All Kinds of Goods Traffic: Check Out

The Southern Railway has notified the opening of the new goods shed at Ullal Railway Station in Someshwara under the Palakkad Railway Division to handle all kinds of goods traffic except coal, petroleum products and coke, with immediate effect.

The Railways has converted a ballast storage line on the eastern side of the Ullall Railway Station as a goods line that could hold a full length (42 BCN wagons) of goods rake at a time. An equal-length of platform (about 650 mt long and 15 mt wide) is constructed to facilitate the unloading of goods into trucks, mainly cement bags. The Railways has spent around ₹2.5 crore for the Ullal facility.

Divisional Railway Manager of Palakkad Division Arun Kumar Chaturvedi informed that the goods shed activities at the Bunder goods shed will be shifted to Ullal. Once the shifting is complete, Bunder will be converted into the coaching complex for Mangalore Central Railway Station. Passenger train rakes will be stabled at Bunder and an additional stabling line will be constructed to stable more trains.
