The new Mannargudi railway station

The Union Minister of State for Finance S.S.Palani Manickam urged the Railway authorities to take steps for starting train services on the newly laid railway line between Needamangalam and Mannargudi in Tiruvarur district at the earliest.

Speaking after inaugurating the Satellite Passenger Reservation Centre at Mannargudi on Saturday, June 11th 2011,the Minister said that the Railways should also initiate steps to extend the Needamangalam – Mannargudi line to Pattukottai. That will provide rail link for people of Mannargudi to both South and North Tamil Nadu.

The Minister inaugurated the centre and purchased the first ticket for travelling from Tiruvarur to Needamangalam.

The Mannargudi railway station that was completed recently has been equipped with adequate amenities for passengers. The station has three platforms, one foot over-bridge, a multi-purpose utility hall and an approach road.

Besides, 50 granite benches and five drinking water taps have been provided. A satellite passenger ticket centre has been inaugurated by Union Minister of State for Finance S. S. Palani Manickam. While the trial run of an engine on the 14-km track had been completed, all eyes are on the inspection by the CRS and subsequent award of certificate on the safety aspect, which lead to the regular operation of trains.

T.R.Baalu, former Union Minister was instrumental in getting the railway line from Needamangalam to Mannargudi. His son T.R.B.Raja, the Mannargudi MLA, said it would be a proud moment for the people of Mannargudi once trains started pounding the line. "It is only a matter of time since all works have been completed by the Railways.”

The Rs. 79-crore project was commenced on April 2, 2010. There are no stations between Mannargudi and Needamangalam. There are 66 minor bridges, five manned level crossings and five unmanned level crossings.

The Railway Board had sanctioned Rs. 216 crore for extending the BG line to Pattukottai, according to P. V. Vaidialingam, Divisional Railway Manager, Tiruchi.

latest news:As per southern railway directives, The mandatory inspection by the Commissioner of Railway Safety is expected next month as per plan on July 10th 2011, once this final clearance is given then SR has a proposal to run a direct train from Mannargudi (MQ) to Chennai Egmore, train service between Mannargudi to Chennai may commence during current FY 2011-12.


  1. The Mannargudi railway station is a boon to the people of this area as it provides a direct link to major towns and cities of tamilnadu once the railway line becomes operational. I wholeheartedly thank each one of them irrespective of their party affiliation who had made this dream come true - Kottur Suresh, Chennai
