Asking just for curiosity...between Berhampur-Kolkata there are two double lines running almost parallel to each other..i mean even on the busiest sections in India there isn't two dedicated Double lines...and second question is why the rail density around Kolkata is so high ??

Yup I understood that..but wat was the need to double both the tracks going to azimgunj via Berhampur and via the 2nd route ? Is the traffic very high in this section?
