Visakhapatnam Railways

Visakhapatnam Railway Station is a major railway station located in Andhra Pradesh. The railway station is under the control of East Coast Railway of Indian Railways. It stands on the Howrah-Chennai main line, though the mainline bypasses Visakhapatnam Central Station. Consequently, a suburban halt on the mainline near Vizag Steel Plant, known as Duvvada, is being developed into a major station to improve services for the city. An escalator was commissioned at Platform No. 4 and 5 of Visakhapatnam Railway Station on Ugadi Day.
