PR No. 981 Third Line between Manubolu and Nellore Stations Commissioned along with Electrification

-Part of Vijayawada – Gudur Tripling & Electrification project

South Central Railway Zone in the current financial year has taken up infrastructural works o­n a large scale by giving special thrust to doubling and tripling works along with electrification. This helps in decongesting the existing saturated routes like the Grand Trunk route and eases the train operations. In this direction, third line works between Manubolu - Nellore section has been completed and commissioned for a distance of 29.3 Kms along with electrification as part of Vijayawada - Gudur Tripling & Electrification Project. This stretch of railway line falls under Nellore District of Andhra Pradesh State.

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 RVNL.

Works have been taken up simultaneously in all the stretches. So far, the sections between Ulavapadu – Kavali for a distance of 29 Kms, Talamanchi – Bitragunta - Sri Venkateswarapalem for a distance of 24.8 Kms, Sri Venkateswarapalem and Kavali for a distance of 12.2 Kms, Talamanchi – Nellore for 17 Kms and the stretch between Karavadi – Chinna Ganjam for 23.5 Kms have been completed and commissioned successfully.  Now, with the completion of 29.3 Kms a total of 135.8 Kms of third line in Vijayawada – Gudur section stands commissioned along with electrification.

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 - Nellore 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 the Zone is planning to commission some more sections pertaining to this tripling project in this financial year.
