- This provides continuous double line connectivity with electrification for 186 kms between Vijayawada - Gudivada - Bhimavaram Town - Narsapur; Gudivada - Machilipatnam and Bhimavaram Town -Aravalli

South Central Railway has completed and commissioned 45 Kms of Double Line & Electric traction between Bhimavaram Town – Narsapur & Bhimavaram Town – Aravalli. The commissioning of Doubling with Electrification in these sections provides continuous double line rail connectivity, along with electrification, for a combined distance of 186 kms between Vijayawada - Gudivada - Bhimavaram Town - Narsapur; Gudivada – Machilipatnam and Bhimavaram Town - Aravalli. With this, the entire project is now operational with Double line along with electrification except for a small stretch of 35 Kms between Aravalli - Nidadavolu.

The commissioning of Doubling of these sections between Bhimavaram Town - Narsapur & Bhimavaram Town - Aravalli along with electrification is part of the Vijayawada – Gudivada – Bhimavaram – Narsapur, Gudivada – Machilipatnam & Narsapur – Nidadavolu Doubling and Electrification project. The project was sanctioned in the year 2011-12 for a distance of 221 Kms at an estimated cost of Rs. 3,000 Crore, and is being executed by RVNL (Rail Vikas Nigam Limited).
