In a slight modification to already sanctioned MMTS Phase - II extension up to Yadadri , it is proposed to shift terminal station to Wangapalli instead of Yadadri. This New Railway Line is one of the important projects for which Final Location Survey (FLS) has been sanctioned by the Railway Ministry. This important line is likely to stretch for a distance of nearly 40 Kms and is estimated to cost nearly Rs. 980 Crs. This line connects Yadadri temple town by faster, safer, efficient and cheaper mode of transport by introduction of MMTS services.
With this new railway line, connectivity to Yadadri temple is provided to pilgrims of not just Telangana but also for all over India. This line also serves ever increasing passenger and goods traffic on this busy route. The quadrupling of the entire section helps in operating the train services effectively without any detention. Introduction of suburban services helps in direct connectivity to Yadadri temple town from all directions of the City.
Ministry of Railways has been giving special focus towards rail development in Telangana. Over the past 9 years, the rail budget allocation to the State has been increased by almost 17 times i.e., from Rs. 258 crores in 204-15 to Rs. 4,418 crs. This has led to creation of new rail infrastructure in the State. Over the past nine years, almost 575 kms of rail has been added to the rail network in the State. The sanctioning of Final Location Survey (FLS) FOR 15 New Railway Lines is likely to give further thrust to the rail development in the state.
