Srinagar-Baramulla railway link to connect Kashmir with rest of the country

The stations and tracks for the Sirnagar-Baramulla rail link massive project will be erected at a height greater than that of Qutab Minar, making train travel at such a height nothing less than a miracle.

Ashutosh Gangal, general manager of Northern Railway, told the media that construction on the remaining 111 km of the complete 272 km route is progressing quickly.

A tunnel will run for 58 kilometres of the 111 km span.

The work on the Reasi railway station in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi district, which is part of the Jammu-Baramulla line, is nearing completion, with concrete slabs being poured at bridge number 39, which spans a 105-foot valley.

The bridge will be supported by 96 cables ranging in length from 82 m to 295 m, ensuring that the train can move at high speeds in the Himalayan area.

The Northern Railway succeeded in constructing the longest rail tunnel in the Katra-Banihal part in February.

With the line and level breakthrough in the 12.758 km long T 49 tunnel, work on linking Kashmir Valley to the rest of the nation by railroads would pick up speed.

The train will go at a speed of 100 km per hour on this segment. The task of laying rails is now in progress.

The deck is now being built, and the Pylon work has been done. This deck will include composite steel slabs that are 15 m wide and 10 m deep.

The first phase entails the continuous casting of 370 metric tonnes of reinforced steel and 900 cusecs of concrete over a 196.25 m long deck.

The government's gigantic dream project will be fulfilled in mission mode for the time being. Direct rail services from Kashmir to Kanyakumari will begin after this project is completed.

This project is also significant from a strategic standpoint. In 2022, it was designated as a national project.
