This important line is likely to stretch for a distance of nearly 71 Kms and is estimated to cost nearly Rs. 1,278 Crs. This line serves as an alternative route connecting the East & West Corridors and is likely to boost the freight transportation.
The New Railway Line will help in connecting Adilabad with main line of Kazipet - Balharshah near Gadchendur and the trains can be operated without touching Balharshah junction and thereby easing the congestion in the Grand Trunk route. Accordingly, the new railway line apart from connecting new place Sirsanna Town for the first time with rail facility will be useful for the socio-economic development of the region. It will aid in the passenger movement and also freight transportation.
This line will be very much useful for moving Cement from Gadchendur/ Manikgarh Cement industries to Nanded division and Central Railway. This line also helps in coal transportation from Singareni Collieries to Parli, Hotgi and Kudgi Thermal Power Plants.
