Bhubaneswar: The Railways is targetting to complete the electrification of the Lanjigarh Road-Junagarh and Naupada-Gunupur lines in Odisha by the end of 2019, an East Coast Railways (ECoR) official said here on Thursday.
The work in the 56-kilometre Lanjigarh Road-Junagarh branch line of the Vizianagaram-Titilagarh-Raipur route and 90-kilometre Naupada-Gunupur branch line of Howrah-Chennai route is being done on a war footing, he said.
While the electrification of the Lanjigarh Road- Junagarh line will cost Rs 62 crore, that of the Naupada- Gunupur line will cost Rs 105 crore, the official said.
His complaining attitude will never stop. Actually he is jealous of any development in Odisha
But in Karnataka more than 90% of the routes are getting electrified only because of Modi Government as Late Anant Kumar (EX MP B'lore South) was the close friend of Ex RM Suresh Prabhu he pressurized a lot and got sanctioned for electrification of all routes in Karnataka otherwise at present even SBC MYS section wouldn't have been electrified if we were depended on RB. Even KJM DLS is been upgraded to ELS because of PC Mohan who insisted to setup an ELS at Banaswadi but it will be at KJM and BAND will be a MEMU shed. And now if KLBG comes under SWR then 95% of thr requirements of Karnataka regarding rail infrastructure will be fulfilled. MoSR also pressurised officials to upgrade tracks in SBC UBL section and run trains at 130 kmph by 2022 after completion of doubling and electrification.
Now, not sure how much of electrification [%] is done in Karnataka. I havent seen Blore Miraj electrification tender
Between Ubl to Alnawar poles have been laid for almost entire stretch. Between Bgm to mrj for entire stretch poles have been laid leaving few kms inbetween. This work was done by PGCIL's contracts so tender was not released
