Statue of Unity to soon be connected to rail network

01 Dec 2020

The Statue of Unity at Kevadiya in Gujarat will be connected to the railway network by the end of 2020. The train services will take passengers up to 5-km from the tallest statue in the world. At present, Vadodara, Bharuch and Ankleshwar stations provide rail connectivity to the statue. The nearest airports to the Statue of Unity are Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport and Vadodara Airport. The Railways has acquired all the land required for the Kevadia Rail Link project, which involves gauge conversion between the Dabhoi-Chandod 18-km route and a new line of 32-km between Chandod and Kevadia. All three major and 16 minor bridges between Dabhoi-Chandod have been built, and most of the other work has also been completed.
