Water shortage affects train services

Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 21 (UNI) Shortage of water has affected the cleaning of hundreds of coaches at Trivandrum Central and Kochuveli Railway stations which were the major coach caring centers of Trivandrum division dealing with about 50,000 passengers every day.
More than four hundred coaches of Mail/Express and Passenger trains are being cleaned and made ready for travel daily. The demand for water is about 12 lakh litres and 3.5 lakh litres for Trivandrum and Kochuveli respectively, a railway release said here today.
The division has been meeting the demand only through Kerala Water Authority (KWA) supply since there is no water source available with the Railways.
As KWA has curtailed supply of water to Thiruvananthapuram Central from April 18 and to Kochuveli from April 20, Railways is finding it extremely difficult to maintain the coaches and watering them.
Efforts are being made to fill water in trains at wayside stations where watering facility is available such as Kottayam and Alappuzha which in turn is causing detention en-route. Passengers are requested to bear with them till the water supply is fully restored.
