Third- Line between Wirur and Manikgarh commissioned along with Electrification

- Part of Kazipet – Balharshah tripling & electrification project

- With this, a total of 84 kms between Kazipet – Balharshah now has third line facility

The significant third line project in the Grand Trunk route viz., Kazipet – Balharshah project, covering Telangana & Maharashtra states, has taken another crucial step with the completion of works between Wirur – Manikgarh Both the third line works as well Electrification works for a distance of 19.2 kms now stands commissioned. The section between Kazipet – Balharshah is a vital rail link situated along the Grand Trunk Route connecting Northern parts with Southern region of the country.

The section between Kazipet – Balharshah o­n SCR falls in both Telangana and Maharashtra states. This main line falling under the Grand Trunk route has been witnessing continuous growth of both Passenger and Freight traffic, leading to oversaturation of this section. To decongest this vital section, initially the tripling works between Raghavapuram – Mandamarri for a distance of 33 Kms have been completed in the year 2016. To further ease the traffic, tripling & electrification works o­n the balance stretch of Kazipet – Balharshah section, for a distance of 202 Kms (Telangana-159 Kms & Maharashtra-43 Kms) has been sanctioned in the year 2015-16 with an estimated cost of Rs 2,063 Crore. As part of it, 31 kms between Potkapalli - Raghavapuram has already been completed.

Now, out of 43 Kms stretch that falls in Maharashtra state, third line works between Wirur - Manikgarh for a distance of 19.2 Kms has been completed giving boost for the socio-economic development of this region. Especially, Manikgarh station is the interchange point with Central Railway and it is the junction for connecting several cement and coal sidings, situated near Manikgarh station. Commissioning of third line of this stretch will ease the congestion for both freight and passenger trains.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, South Central Railway has complimented the entire Team of both Secunderabad Division and Construction Organisation, who have completed the tripling and electrification works. He opined that completion of Kazipet – Balharshah tripling project eases the congestion in this oversaturated route and facilitates handling of more number of trains effectively. Accordingly, execution of third line works of the entire project is being taken up simultaneously in different sections and the works in balance stretches of both Telangana & Maharashtra region are progressing at a fast pace.
