- Part of Vijayawada – Gudur Tripling & Electrification project

- With this, continuous stretch of 127 Kms from Gudur - Singarayakonda now stands electrified along with third line facility

Giving major thrust to infrastructural activity across South Central Railway, special focus has been given to o­ngoing doubling and tripling projects. The major tripling project along with electrification in the State of Andhra Pradesh viz., Vijayawada - Gudur Tripling project is progressing well and in this direction, o­ne more critical section between Manubolu - Gudur for a distance of 7.4 Kms has been completed and commissioned by the Zone. This helps in decongesting the existing saturated routes like the Grand Trunk route and eases the train operations. This stretch of railway line falls under Tirupati District of Andhra Pradesh State. With the tripling of this small stretch, now, continuous stretch of 127 Kms between Gudur - Singarayakonda will be of third line facility along with electrification.

Situated in the Grand Trunk route along the Coastal region of Andhra Pradesh, the section between Vijayawada – Gudur o­n SCR plays a vital role in connecting the Northern and Eastern parts of the country with the Southern states. This route has become highly congested with the steady increase in both Passenger and Freight trains. To decongest this crucial section, the Vijayawada – Gudur Third line project was sanctioned in the year 2015-16 for a distance of 288 Kms at an approximate cost of Rs 3246 crores. The work is being executed by Rail Vikas Nigam Limited.

Works have been taken up simultaneously in all the stretches. So far, the sections between Ulavapadu – Manubolu for a distance of 120 Kms and the stretch between Chirala - Karavadi for 44 Kms have been completed and commissioned successfully. Now, with the completion of the critical section between Manubolu - Gudur which is located at the southern most end of the Zone, the total of 171 Kms of the total section stands electrified along with third line.

Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager has complimented the entire team of both Vijayawada Division and RVNL officials, who have completed the tripling and electrification works between Manubolu - Gudur section. He stated that third line works between Vijayawada - Gudur are being taken up o­n top priority and the works are in fast progress in all the stretches simultaneously. He also stated that o­nce the project is completed, it eases the congestion of this busy route and also helps in improving the efficiency of train operations.
