A seemingly innocuous issue relating to payment of compensation to five acres of land in two villages of Sattenapalli and Vinukonda mandals has emerged as a major bottleneck in the completion of the Nadikudi-Sirkalahasti new railway line project being undertaken by the South Central Railway. The project has been taken up as joint project, with the Andhra Pradesh government bearing 50% of the estimated cost of ₹2,289 crore.
The issue relating to payment of compensation to the land, which belonged to the Endowments Department, and was being used for agricultural purposes by local farmers, is now with the Arbitration Bench of the High Court. The Government of Andhra Pradesh has already deposited ₹67 lakh in lieu of market price of land in

the court, but the logjam continues over the payment. While the Endowment Department claims that the land is in its possession, the farmers are claiming ownership of land.
The delay in acquisition of land at Savalyapuram village in Vinukonda mandal and Rajupalem village in Sattenapalli mandal has been holding up the project connecting Piduguralla to Savalyapuram stations.
“The delay in awarding compensation to land owners is delaying the execution of the project. Works worth ₹450 crore are waiting to be completed, and we are racing against time to complete the project,” said a senior railway official.
The Railways has asked for 5,189 acres of land in Guntur, Prakasam and Nellore districts.
The Nadikudi-Srikalahasti railway project, sanctioned in 2011-2012 at an estimated cost of ₹2.289 crore, is a game changer as it serves as an alternative route to the heavily congested Howrah-Chennai railway line. It also serves as a vital link between Guntur and Tirupati and boost the transportation of freight from the industrial belt in Guntur to Rayalaseema region and beyond. The project connects Secunderabad-Guntur line at Nadikudi in Guntur district and Gudur-Renigunta main line at Srikalahasti in Chitoor district covering a distance of 309 km.
The new railway line will also connect hinterlands and the backward interior areas of Guntur, Prakasam and Nellore districts, besides providing connectivity to Capital Amaravati.

Authorities of South Central Railway (SCR) are racing against time to complete the first phase of the prestigious Nadikudi-Srikalahasti railway line project.
Officials are frantically chasing down deadlines as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is learnt to be personally monitoring the pace of the project by including it on the list of top-priority infrastructure projects. Though the first phase was to be completed by December, SCR authorities are confident of operating trains much ahead of schedule.
The railway line between Piduguralla-Rompicherla has already been laid and put under trial runs. The completion of the

33 km-long track within deadline has become a source of motivation for officials to complete the next phase. Officials are trying to complete another 18-km long track to connect the new line with Guntur-Guntakal railway line near Savalyapuram.
“We are trying to complete the first phase as per schedule. Completion of the track up to Savalyapuram will enable us to operate the trains via the new line,” said a senior engineering official managing the works. Although Nadikudi-Srikalahasti is a 309-km long line, completion of the first phase itself will provide a key link to the metro cities. The new track will chiefly aid the movement of freight wagons from industrial belts of Ananthapuram to Hyderabad and Macherla area in Guntur to Bengaluru. In fact, the new line will boost industrial development in Palnadu region of Guntur district, officials said.
Works on new railway stations at Nakarikallu, Kunkalagunta, Rompicherla, Santhagudipadu, Velpuru have also been put on fast track. While Kunkalagunta station is nearing completion, works on Velpuru station picked up pace. The existing stations at Piduguralla and Savalyapuram would also be provided with additional facilities including siding and junctions to take additional trains.
The project connects Secunderabad-Guntur Branch line at Nadikudi of Guntur district and Gudur-Katpadi Branch line at Srikalahasti of Chittoor district in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. The total length of the section is 308 km (191 mi) estimated cost of the project is ₹2,452 crore (US$370 million). The railway stations of which lies between the nodal stations are Nekarikallu, Rompicherla,Vinukonda, Gundlakamma, Darsi, Podili, Obulayapalli, Kanigiri, Pamuru, Rapur and Venkatagiri.
Other projects

The electrification of Guntur-Pagidipalli railway line is expected to be completed by February, 2019. Apart from the main line works, various passenger amenities at the Guntur railway station were of top priority. All the railway platforms at the Guntur Railway Station to have escalators now, three escalators have already been set up on platforms 1,2,3 and 4.
