Railway officials set to restart blocked survey



MALAPPURAM: Amid strong protests fromThirunnavaya residents, a four-member team of railways inspected the route of the proposed Guruvayur-Thirunnavaya rail line on Monday. The inspection was held as part of procedures to re-start survey of the line which was blocked by residents a year ago.

The team headed by railways' executive engineer Chacko George managed to inspect the route from Choondikkal to Bandarkkadavu, though they were blocked by protesters at Thirunnavaya. Protesters claimed the project will harm thousands of acres of farmland in the region and demanded that the line be re-routed. They were removed by the police and a police team was also deployed in the region.

Officials informed that the railways will go ahead with the survey the work of which would start from Guruvayur. Kole farmers in Ponnani have already come up against the rail line project.

KA Jayanandan, secretary of Ponnani Kole Protection council, said farmers will block the officials if they visit the Kole fields.

Survey for the line was first started in Thirunnavaya panchayat in 2010 but was stopped after strong local protests. Following the indefinite delay of survey process, railway officials convened a meeting in Ponnani in July 2011 to discuss re-routing the line. Residents also decried the revised route. The latest move to resume survey was started after a meeting of railway officials by district collector K Baiju last week.

The railways decided to go for the Tanur-Guruvayur rail line project, as a proposal, mooted in 1995, to connect Guruvayur with the Shoranur - Manglore stretch. But later the plan was changed to Kuttippuram-Guruvayur rail line. This too was dropped following strong opposition from locals.

After carrying out detailed studies and examining various alternatives for a line fromKuttippuram to Guruvayur, it was decided to connect Tanur to Guruvayur in 2004. But, following frequent protests from the people of Tanur, the railways decided to alter the rail line and connect Thirunnavaya with Guruvayur.
