SRIKAKULAM: Srikakulam Lok Sabha member Rammohan Naidu on Sunday said that the new railway zone for Andhra Pradesh was likely to be declared in the next few days.

Addressing the media after inaugurating the escalator and new ticket booking counter at Srikakulam Road railway station along with divisional railway manager (DRM) Chandralekha Mukharjee and government whip K Ravi Kumar, the MP said that things would improve once the new railway zone comes into being.

Since Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu was elected to the Rajya Sabha from Andhra Pradesh, Rammohan Naidu said the Railway Minister had put the AP in priority list. Since Railway budget forms part of the general budget from this year, Andhra MPs are set to intensify pressure on the Union government to announce the new railway zone for the state.

On the Srikakulam Road railway station, the DRM said that  an additional foot bridge with ramp facility connecting all platforms is likely to be inaugurated in the next few days. On the lack of halts of many trains at Srikakulam Road, the DRM said that eight more express trains would make a  halt at the station.
