Kolad Railway Station
This is the first station on Konkan Railway. This is the starting point for RORO Service on Konkan Railway. RORO means Roll On Roll Off, where loaded trucks are directly carried by railway wagons and reached to destination by trains. Konkan railways passes through tough terrains of India. There is NH-17 passing through same route. Truck drivers find it extremely difficult to drive loaded trucks through ghats,undulating surfaces,narrow roads and poor road & weather conditions. The KRC came with concept of RORO , where loaded trucks are moved on wagons and are traveled by train. This has helped in saving of fuels, decrease in wear and tear of lorries(trucks), relief to drivers of driving in extreme conditions,can reach faster to destination. This also helps in decongestion of roads and lowering of pollution. This concept has been beneficial for both truck operators and KRC.
