Push for LPG to be carried by rail
The Kerala State government are being pushed to hold talks with the Indian Oil Corporation to allow further units to be carried by rail.
Create lines to LPG units
The High Court of Kerala are requesting that the government consult with the IOC in regards to laying down tracks to existing LPG bottling units. They are also pushing an alternative proposal of allowing units to be moved to areas that would allow bulk loads to be carried by railway.
The Court deems that the best solution for the bulk transportation of LPG would be through rail, rather than by road. This is in view of recurring accidents that have occurred involving tankers on narrow roads.
They have also confirmed that they will consider building bottling units nearby railway tracks to allow transportation of LPG.
The case will be decided upon in two months.
