This mega block resulted in completion of Deep screening of ballast for a length of 2200mtrs by deploying two Ballast Cleaning Machines. During the block period a length of 10kms of Track tamping was completed. Sleepers of track were renewed for a length of 410mtrs, simultaneously 2.8km length of rail was also replaced with new rails. In addition 1250nos of wider sleepers were unloaded along the track for the purpose of intermittent safety works.
