Accordingly, Guntur - Guntakal Doubling & Electrification project was sanctioned in the year 2016-17 with an estimated cost of Rs 3887 crore for a distance of 404 Km.

As a part of execution of Guntur – Guntakal Doubling & Electrification works, doubling & electrification between Perecherla – Satulur (24 kms) and Dhone – Pendekallu (28 Kms) has been completed in February and March 2020 respectively. Now, with the completion of another 7.8 Kms length between Perecherla - Nallapadu, a total of 59.8 Kms length doubling works with electrification has been completed o­n the Guntur – Guntakal section. The completion of this 7.8 Kms stretch fromNallpadu – Perecherla will provide double line connectivity from Guntur to Satulur along with electrification.Doubling & electrification works in the remaining sections of Guntur – Guntakal Doubling & Electrification project are in fast progress.

Keeping the importance of this project, Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, SCR has been regularly reviewing the progress of works and conducting frequent meetings with all the railway officials. As this section involves construction of several minor and major bridges apart from passing through thick Nallamalla forest area, the Zone is making meticulous plans to execute the works o­n war footing.

The Benefits of the Project are –

1. Will substantially enhance the potential for running more number of passenger carrying and freight trains between Guntur-Guntakal there by leading to the possibility of handling more rail services from Hyderabad/Nadikude side towards Rayalaseema region and beyond down South.

2. The enhanced connectivity will help in improving the Socio-economic condition of the people of Guntur, Prakasam, Kurnool and Anantapur districts in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

3. This improved connectivity will substantially increase freight transportation by harnessing the potential of mineral rich Palnadu Region to transport its produce/goods to any part of the country.

4. Since this line is providing additional direct connectivity to Karnataka State and its capital city area, Doubling of this section enhances overall train handling capacity in the Guntur/Vijayawada region, with the possibility of diverting more trains via Guntur to balance the rail traffic and the reduce the congestion o­n the grand trunk route.
