Kharagpur-Adityapur third line project nearing completion

Indian Railways is making significant progress in reorganising the country's track infrastructure. In light of this, the government has increased the amount allocated to the budget for FY 2022-23. Additionally, the annual capital expenditures for railway capacity expansion have been increased by the government.

In this context, the Kharagpur-Adityapur third line project of South Eastern Railways is nearing completion. So far, nearly 82 per cent of the third-line project has been completed. The project has a total length of 132 km, and 90.583 km have already been commissioned. Out of the total of 19 major bridges, 17 have been finished. The new line project is anticipated to be finished within this year. The project is being carried out by Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL), a category-I Mini-Ratna CPSE under the Ministry of Railways.

Maharashtra, Gujarat, and other Western Indian states are connected by trains from South Eastern Railway (SER).

The third line was approved for construction between 2015 and 2016 at an estimated cost of INR 131,20 million. The project spans 77 km in Jharkhand and 55 km in West Bengal.

Relevance : The Kharagpur-Adityapur section is a very busy route with too much traffic. As a result, it became crucial for the railways to ensure that trains moved smoothly. The Howrah-Mumbai Trunk route includes this newly constructed line. The new line will increase capacity and reduce traffic congestion when it is finished. The Indian Railways will benefit from increased revenue from this.

Kalaikunda-Jhargram section: The third line work on the 30 km long Kalaikunda Jhargram Section has been completed. The project has been given a budget of INR 2550 million in the Union Budget 2021–22.
