South Central Railway is giving a major focus towards creation of infrastructure in terms of additions to its rail network for enhancing its rail handling capacity. Accordingly, o­ne more section between Bapatla - Tsunduru for a distance of 32 Kms has been successfully completed and commissioned. This section is part of Vijayawada - Gudur Tripling & electrification project, o­ne of the o­ngoing major projects in the state of Andhra Pradesh and this stretch of railway line falls under Bapatla District. With the tripling of this stretch, now, continuous stretch of 106 Kms between Surareddipalem - Tsunduru will have 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 Gudur – Singarayakonda for a distance of 127 Kms and the stretch between Bapatla -Surareddipalem for a distance of 74 kms have been completed and commissioned successfully. Now, with the completion of the 32 Kms section between Bapatla - Tsunduru, the total of 233 Kms of the total section stands electrified along with third line.
