PR No. 785 - SCR completes electrification of New Railway Line between New Piduguralla – Savalyapuram

- The Line was constructed as part of Nadikude - Srikalahasti New Railway line Project in June 2020

As part of Mission Electrification, SCR is completing the electrification of the existing railway lines across its network. Taking this ahead, electrification of the new railway line between New Pidiguralla - Savalyapuram, for a distance of 46 Kms, has been completed and commissioned for train operations. This new railway line is a part of Nadikude – Srikalahasti new railway line project in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

Nadikude - Srikalahasti new railway line project is o­ne of the important & prestigious projects taken up in the State of Andhra Pradesh by South Central Railway connecting interior regions of Guntur, Prakasham and Nellore Districts o­n the rail map. The new line between New Piduguralla – Savalyapuram will facilitate direct traffic movement from Secunderabad to Dhone direction via New Piduguralla, bypassing Nallapadu junction.
