Doubling and electrification are being given a special thrust all over India to strengthen Railway network for dealing more number of and faster trains.

Infrastructure works at Railway stations and Passenger amenity works like new station buildings, provision of high Level platforms, Foot over bridges etc., are being taken up in SWR along with doubling.

As a part of doubling work between Kulem and Madgoan section, Sanvordem Station, is provided with new Station building costing around Rs 2.0 Cr.  The station building is having two floors and work of 90% has been completed.  The amenities provided to passengers at New station building  include  new ticket counters with better accessibility, waiting rooms ,provision of Ramp (for Divyangan), circulating area, Foot over bridge, High level platform , wash rooms,   etc..

At Sanvordem, new Foot over bridge (FOB) of 76.0 m length x 3.0 m wide, covering entire yard width of 6 tracks including Island platform, is constructed at a cost of Rs. 2.10 Cr.  This FOB will provide connectivity to the roads o­n either side of the station yard including island high level platform. A wider opening of gangway of 3 mtrs (which is double than the replaced FOB) is being provided which will facilitate easy movement of passengers during peak hours. This FOB will also provide excellent connectivity to the residents living o­n either side of the station yard.

To have  uninterrupted road traffic,  in Sanvordem Yard a Road Under Bridge no: 211B, is being constructed in lieu of Level crossing gate  No 16, for the convenience of Road users. This Level Crossing (LC) is a bottle neck for the road users as this LC has 3 tracks and road vehicles are held up for longer duration of time due to closure of gate for movements of trains and shunting of wagons in the yard. This RUB will give a great relief to the road users. The RUB comprises of twin box, o­ne which is already constructed and 2nd box along with finishing works and connecting roads (1.5 Km o­n LHS and 0.5 Km o­n RHS) o­n either side is in progress. .

New Station building has also been constructed at Chandargao Railway station as part of the doubling between Kulem and Madgoan section. The new station building is being provided with facilities like waiting hall, wash rooms, new ticket counters, improved accessibility to Divyangan with convenient Ramps etc.  The construction cost of this new station building is around Rs. 2.5 Crores and almost in completion.  Approach road and circulating area works well be taken up o­nce land is made available for the same.

Work of construction of LHS at Chandargao station at a cost of Rs.1 Cr in Lieu of LC 18 which is located o­n a State highway with TVU 2,14,892 is also held up due to agitation by locals against the doubling.  About 50% work of the underpass o­n the new doubling track is completed.  This LHS will provide relief to the road users as it is a very busy Level crossing gate connecting Sanvordem and Madgaon.

Major Stations in the state of Goa were not provided with suitable passenger amenities such as Platform shelters, Foot over bridges, Platform toilets, Ramp for Disabled passengers etc. during its construction.   All these works are now being taken up under doubling, along with extension of platforms which will help in introduction of 24 coach length Mail/Express trains in this section, as existing platform lengths are suitable for handling trains with 18-20 coaches o­nly.
