The important third line project in the Grand Trunk route viz., Vijayawada - Kazipet Tripling project, covering Andhra Pradesh & Telangana states has commenced, with SCR completing the works along the first stretch of the project between Vijayawada New West Block Hut Cabin – Cheruvumadhavaram Cabin.

This entire stretch falls under the state of Andhra Pradesh. As part of third line woks, o­ne common loop line has been laid at Rayanapadu station duly dismantling two goods lines. New Electronic Interlocking (EI) system with 232 routes has been commissioned at Rayanapadu station, New EI system with 224 routes commissioned at Kondapalli station, while EI system has been modified with 47 routes at Vijayawada New West cabin. Commissioning of third line of this stretch will ease the congestion for both freight and passenger trains.
