The Daund chord line will become operational next week, which will reduce the travel time of trains plying going towards Manmad junction and Howrah by at least 45 minutes.
The Pune railway division had proposed construction of a new railway line of 1.1 kilometres to bypass the Daund railway station in 2017, in a bid to reduce the 45-minute halt which all trains (going to Nagpur/Kolkata) commencing from the Pune railway station take at Daund. The halt is required for technical reasons (engine reversal), according to railway authorities.
According to central railway authorities,
I think sampark kranti will be diverted first
After diversion they should speed up 12630 and 22686 so as to reach UBL at 9pm well ahead of RC, further reaching YPR at 5.30 am.. it is easily practical as it use to waste 50 minutes in total for enter , LC , and existing Daund in...
By this one crossing of SBC DWR ICE will be avoided, as both trains will meet up at UBL...
bhool val likhna is a habit of news paper. PUNE-DD is 75.5 kms
12221/22 will use this line . Will b the 1st Train to use this line once its opened for express trains. So. 12221 dep at Pune can b 16.20 hrs in future & 12222 arrival at Pune can b 11.20 hrs in future
at last this very important chord line get completed and hopefully by September 17 CRS will also be done successfully so hoping for the best and now travel time b/w MMR-Pune will reduce and trains can be diverted from this line without LC
