Initial survey on Amaravati rail line completed


The country’s largest railway junction will be coming up in Amaravati – the capital city of Andhra Pradesh. As there is no viability for the expansion of railway stations in Guntur and Vijayawada, the initial Survey and propositions are being put in place for the most modern railway station in Amaravati which will provide connectivity to every nook and corner of the country.

Railway Vikas Nigam has reportedly completed its first survey and submitted the report to the government. In the initial survey, the authorities are working on making changes to existing railway stations and other related matters. Shortly tenders will be called for a comprehensive project report for the final survey. As the final survey reports are completed, the tenders will be called to initiate the construction work. Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu aims to complete the construction of Amaravati youth railway line by 2019.

Plans are being drawn to ensure that the new route has electrified double track along the entire length. The construction of 106 km rail line between From Hyderabad to Sattenappalli and Pedakurapadu through Amaravati-Vijayawada and Amravati-Guntur is estimated at Rs 2650 crore.

The new railway line will be helpful to reduce traffic on Vijayawada and Guntur railway stations. The main railway station will be apparently based out of Tulluru. The central government has already issued a green signal to the construction of Amravati Railway.
