There had been a long-pending demand of the people there for better connectivity in the route up to Visakhapatnam. By February, the train may run from Kadapa. However, it may be noted that Tirumala express has high demand for berths and will always show huge waiting list of passengers. This demand will further rise once it starts its run from Kadapa.
