Guntakal - Kalluru section is an important by-pass rail line for a distance of 41 Kms which serves as a shortest and alternative route for trains from Delhi, Mumbai and Secunderabad towards Bengaluru. Guntakal - Kalluru section as a single line section faced severe congestion due to over-saturation and trains were running with more than section capacity up to 124%. Hence, Doubling of Guntakal - Kalluru section was taken up as top priority and works were speeded up in the last 2 years. Doubling of Guntakal - Khadarpet section (34 Kms) is successfully completed and commissioned o­n 8th May, 2019 with running of Goods train o­n newly constructed Double Line.

Doubling project of Guntakal - Kalluru was sanctioned in the year 2015-16 for a distance of 41 kms with an estimated cost of Rs. 323 Crore. Doubling of Gulapalayamu to Khadarpet section for a distance of 23 kms, was completed and commissioned in September 2018. Doubling of Guntakal - Gulapalyamu for a distance of 11 Kms is now completed. With this, Doubling Project of Guntakal - Kalluru section is completed except for a small portion between Khadarpet - Kalluru (7 Kms) consisting of important bridge o­n Penna River.
