- Part of Gooty - Dharmavaram Doubling & Electrification Project

- This will enable continuous double line connectivity for 79 Kms between Gooty - Chigicherla

The Doubling with Electrification of rail line between Taticherla and Zangalapalle for a distance of 18.8 Kms has been completed successfully as part of Gooty - Dharmavaram Doubling & Electrification Project. The trains can now be operated in this double line section with maximum permissible speed of 110 Kmph. This will enable the continuous double line connectivity for a stretch of 79 Kms from Gooty to Chigicherla. The works in the balance section of 11 Kms between Chigicherla - Dharmavaram are progressing in a fast manner to mark the completion of the entire project.

The Gooty - Dharmavaram Doubling Project is a vital rail link connecting Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka states. This line serves as o­ne of the important routes connecting both the Telugu states with Bengaluru, the capital city of Karnataka. The Doubling and Electrification of Gooty - Dharmavaram project for a distance of 90 kms is being executed by Rail India Technical and Economic Service (RITES). The sanctioned cost of the project is Rs.636.38 crore and the project is being completely funded by Railways.

Out of the entire project of 90 kms stretch, the doubling and electrification in the section between Kalluru - Garladinne for a distance of 11 kms has been completed during September, 2019. Doubling and Electrification between Chigicherla and Zangalapalle for 11 Kms has been completed during June 2020 and Garladinne - Taticherla for 10 Kms during November 2020. Works between Kalluru - Gooty for 28 Kms has been completed during October 2021. Now, with the completion of 19 Kms doubling with electrification between Taticherla and Zangalapalle, it has facilitated operation of train services in double line section for continuous stretch of 79 Kms.

Once the project is complete, it will ease the congestion o­n this important saturated single line section and enables to run more number of Passenger and Freight trains towards Bengaluru. The double line works between Dharmavaram - Bengaluru over SWR jurisdiction are also progressing simultaneously with some of the sections already completed. This will offer a huge boon to the local populous in both passenger & freight segment.
