Though being a port city and a hub for marine transportation and trade, Visakhapatnam is also very well connected by the Indian rail network. Under the administrative remit of the East Coast Wing of the Indian Railways, the railway station in Visakhapatnam operates major trains connecting it to all the major cities in South India such as Madras, Bangalore, and Hyderabad etc. Being strategically located on the Chennai – Central Howrah route, the station’s name was changed in 1987 from ‘Waltair Railway Station’ to ‘Visakhapatnam Junction’. Given the commercial and industrial activity in the city, the rail network here is frequented by many passengers and hence a suburban station of Duvvadda is being developed, to ease the pressure on the main line.
