Tandur Cement Cluster to Zahirabad New Railway Line FLS Sanctioned


-The project execution cost is estimated at around Rs. 1,350 Crs.

-It is likely to reduce the existing distance between Tandur - Zahirabad (via Vikarabad) by 65 Kms.

Giving special focus for strengthening rail connectivity in the State of Telangana, Ministry of Railways has sanctioned nearly 15 Final Location Survey (FLS) for New Railway Lines. These lines combinedly stretch for a distance of nearly 2,647 kms and is estimated to cost nearly Rs. 50,848 crs. Apart from these, another 11 projects FLS have been sanctioned for Doubling, Tripling and Quadrapling for a distance of nearly 2,588 kms and is estimated to cost nearly Rs. 32,695 crs.


The Tandur Cement Cluster - Zahirabad 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 75 Kms and is estimated to cost nearly Rs. 1,350 Crs. This line is likely to reduce the distance between Tandur and Zahirabad by 65 Kms. At present, the existing line is via Vikarabad.


The New Railway Line will serve as shortest route for the trains that are bound to Wadi and beyond instead of operating via Vikarabad. This line also serves as alternate route for the existing line and the freight rakes can be moved in more flexible manner in both directions i.e., towards Secunderabad and towards Wadi. This new line will be useful for the socio-economic development of the region. It will aid in the passenger movement to and from the Maharashtra region towards Southern direction and helps in giving boost to the multiple sectors like agriculture, business, education, tourism, healthcare, etc.


The line helps in serving the Cement industries located in the region and there is lot of potential for Cement and Clinker transportation. This provides fillip to the Cement industry for increasing their production with the help of better transportation avenues.


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.
