आम बजट में रेलवे की परियोजनाओं के लिए इस बार उत्तर प्रदेश की झोली में बड़ी रकम दी गई है। उत्तर रेलवे जोन को विकास के लिए 7118 करोड़ रुपये का प्रावधान किया गया है। इस बजट से जहां अयोध्या स्टेशन का विकास होगा वहीं दलमाऊ-फतेहपुर व माधोगंज-कन्नौज के बीच गंगा पर ब्रिज बनाने का सर्वे किया जाएगा।
मथुरा-झांसी व झांसी-बीना के बीच चौथी लाइन डालकर रेल को सरपट दौड़ाने के लिए पटरी तैयार होगी। गोरखपुर कैंट- बाल्मीकिनगर ट्रैक के दोहरीकरण का प्रस्ताव है तो लखनऊ-कानपुर रूट पर तीसरी व चौथी लाइन का निर्माण किया जाएगा।

मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु आगामी वित्त वर्ष में सात हजार करोड़ रुपये से भी अधिक के रेलवे प्रोजेक्टों को पूरा करने का खाका तैयार कर चुके हैं।
वाराणसी-गोरखपुर वाया लालगंज-आजमगढ़ नई लाइन के सर्वे के लिए भी अलग से बजट दिया गया है। इसी तरह पडरौना-कुशीनगर समेत कई रूट पर नई लाइन भी बिछाने का काम पूरा किया जाएगा। रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु आगामी वित्त वर्ष में सात हजार करोड़ रुपये से भी अधिक के रेलवे प्रोजेक्टों को पूरा करने का खाका तैयार कर चुके हैं। यूपीए कार्यकाल से 541 प्रतिशत अधिक बजट का ऐलान किया गया है।
इस साल के बजट में वाराणसी और मुगलसराय के बीच 16.72 किलोमीटर लंबी तीसरी लाइन को बनाने के लिए बजट मंजूर किया गया है। इस योजना पर 205.15 करोड़ रुपये खर्च होंगे। पडरौना और कुशीनगर के बीच वाया गोरखपुर 64 किलोमीटर 1345 करोड़ की लागत से नई लाइन बिछेगी।
इसी तरह पीलीभीत और शाहजहांपुर के बीच 83 किलोमीटर लंबी लाइन 622.5 करोड़ रुपये से बनेगी। मथुरा और वृंदावन के बीच भी 11 किलोमीटर लंबी नई लाइन बिछाने की योजना है। इस पर 97.96 करोड़ खर्च होंगे। इसी तरह संभल और गजरौला के बीच 45 किलोमीटर लंबी नई रेलवे लाइन बिछाने के लिए 860 करोड़ की रकम मंजूरी की गई है। इस लाइन को राज्य सरकार के साथ मिलकर डाली जाएगी।
लखनऊ-कानपुर के बीच अतिरिक्त लूप लाइन के लिए 11.89 करोड़ रुपये खर्च होंगे तो आलमगढ़ में गुड्स शेड के लिए छह करोड़ रुपये का प्रावधान किया गया है। बाराबंकी-मलहौर के बीच 32 किलोमीटर तीसरी व चौथी लाइन बिछेगी। इस पर दो सौ करोड़ रुपये खर्च होंगे।
कहां-कहां बिछेगी नई लाइन
राबर्टसगंज-मुगलसराय वाया मधुपुर अहरोरा
जौनपुर जंक्शन-जौनपुर सिटी के बीच
भाऊपुर-पनकी चौथी लाइन
वाराणसी-मुगलसराय तीसरी लाइन मालवीय ब्रिज पर दो लाइन
सर्वे के लिए भी बरसा धन
नई लाइन के सर्वे के लिए भी रेलवे बजट में विशेष प्रावधान किया गया है। लिहाजा अब उत्तर प्रदेश में वैसी जगह भी ट्रेन रफ्तार से दौड़ेगी जहां रेल लाइन नहीं है। बिजनौर-हस्तिनापुर-मेरठ के बीच करीब 62 किलोमीटर नई लाइन का सर्वे किया जाएगा। इसी तरह आगरा-करौली, वाराणसी-गोरखपुर वाया लालगंज और आजमगढ़, झांसी, शिवपुरी-सिओपुरी-सवाई माधोपुर के बीच 290 किलोमीटर का सर्वे करने के लिए राईट्स को कहा गया है। हरदोई-गुरशाहगंज वाया सांडी रेल लाइन के लिए 55 किलोमीटर का सर्वे किया जाएगा।
आगरा-अकोला-खेडग़ढ-तंतापुर-बयाना के बीच 95 किलोमीटर रेल लाइन का सर्वे किया जाएगा।

नई लाइन का सर्वे कहा होगा
आगरा-अकोला-खैरागढ़-टंटपुर-बबयाना के बीच 95 किलोमीटर
अनवरगंज-मंधाना के बीच करीब 17 किलोमीटर
माधोगंज-कन्नौज वाया गंगाब्रिज 25 किलोमीटर
आगरा-करौली के बीच करीब 60 किलोमीटर
बरेली-चंदौसी-अलीगढ़ के बीच 127 किलोमीटर
मुगलसराय-पटना-क्यूल के बीच तीसरी लाइन का सर्वे करीब 335 किलोमीटर
रेल मार्गों के विद्युतीकरण पर भी रहेगा जोर
डीजल इंजन की जगह इलेक्ट्रिक इंजन से ट्रेन दौड़ाने का भी काम इस साल उत्तर प्रदेश के रेलवे स्टेशनों पर किया जाएगा। इससे जहां मिशन रफ्तार को बढ़ावा मिलेगा वहीं यात्रियों को ट्रेनों की लेटलतीफी से छुटकारा मिलेगा। विद्युतीकरण केलिए 1162.69 करोड़ों रुपये इस साल रेलवे उत्तर प्रदेश में खर्च करेगा। गुमटी पर ट्रेनों को रुकना नहीं पड़े और लोग हादसों का शिकार नहीं हो इसके लिए 27 आरयूबी, आरओबी और सबवे बनाने का काम किया जाएगा।
इस पर रेलवे 1538.49 करोड़ रुपया खर्च करेगा। यात्री सुविधाओं के विकास के लिए स्टेशनों पर 96 करोड़ रुपये खर्च किए जाएंगे।
किस रूट पर होगा विद्युतीकरण
बरेली-चंदौसी-हरदुआगंज वाया चंदौसी-मुरादाबाद विद्युतीकरण किया जाएगा। इसी तरह भदोई-उड़ी के बीच 113 किलोमीटर रूट पर विद्युतीकरण किया जाएगा। कप्तानगंज-थावे-खैरा-छपरा कचहरी के बीच,
शिकोहाबाद- फर्रूखाबाद के बीच 158 किलोमीटर, मनकापुर-कटरा-अयोध्या के बीच 38 किलोमीटर, गजरौला-मुअज्जमपुर-नारायन 95 किलोमीटर, उन्नाव-ऊंचाहार 113 किलोमीटर, कासगंज-बरेली-भोजीपुरा-
डालीगंज के बीच, उन्नाव-बालामऊ-सीतापुर के बीच विद्युतीकरण किया जाएगा।

Ambitious project of the Railways is all set to get under way from Feb. 8
HYDERABAD: Secunderabad and Vijayawada railway stations will get a make over in the near future with facilities such as malls, multiplexes and restaurants as they have been selected under the first phase of the Station Redevelopment Project.
The ambitious project of the Indian Railways is all set to get underway from February 8, when Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will launch it officially from New Delhi.
The

project will primarily focus at upgrading the level of passenger amenities by new constructions/ renovations and include redevelopment of station buildings, platform surfaces and circulating area to better serve the needs of passengers. Commercial establishments including, hotels, multiplexes and shopping malls are likely to come up in the land earmarked for railways for the use of the developers.
In return, the developers would hold the rights for commercial exploitation of the land at the stations for a period of 45 years, while the ownership of the land remains with the Railways. The developers would be selected through a two-stage bidding process.
It also envisages huge revamp in infrastructure at the stations including platforms and circulating areas by the chosen developers. Development of world class stations which can generate surplus revenue on account of their commercial potential is being conceptualised under the project, with the surplus money going into modernisation of railway stations with no additional funding from the railways side.
The project will be implemented under the Swiss challenge method which involves inviting a proposal online and permitting rival bidders to beat that proposal with a more attractive plan. According the South Central Railway officials, 23 railways stations across the country have been selected for the first phase of the project.
× Under the redevelopment project, the selected railway stations would be tuned to the best standards by leveraging the valuable real estate they hold in terms of land and air space in and around railway stations. A total of over 400 stations out of about 8,000 stations in the country have been selected for the project to be implemented phase-wise.

Union Budget allocates funds for line doubling and additional platform construction
The long-pending demand of citizens for the introduction of more trains from Mangaluru Central would materialise in about a year as this year’s budget has allocated funds not only for doubling the Netravathi Cabin-Mangaluru Central line but also for the construction of an additional platform at the station.
Though the works were sanctioned in the previous Railway budget, they were not taken up for want of funds allocation.
While

₹ 1 lakh [total cost ₹ 6.65 crore] are allocated for the construction of an additional platform at Central, ₹ 5 crore [total cost ₹ 9.46 crore] are set apart for doubling the 1.5-km line between Netravathi Cabin and Central.
Proposal reworked
Divisional Railway Manager of Palakkad Division of Southern Railway Naresh Lalwani told The Hindu that the division had been sending the proposal for line doubling and two additional platforms for the past many years.
As construction of two additional platforms did not get the Board’s nod, he revised the proposal seeking one platform this time and was able to get it sanctioned.
One additional platform does not require relocating of the existing two pit-lines [maintenance tracks], he said.
Construction wing
Mr. Lalwani said that since the construction wing of Southern Railway is expected to take up line doubling work, the same agency would take up additional platform work too. As such, signalling work too would be executed along with civil works in one package, he said.
The project is likely to be completed in about 18 months once taken up.
Asked about the number of additional trains that could be introduced after one more platform is added, Mr. Lalwani said that he is yet to work out the details.
More trains
Welcoming the allocation, Anil Hegde from Paschima Karavali Railway Yatrikara Sangha said that at least 10 new trains could be introduced from Mangaluru Central with the additional platform. At present, Central, with four platforms, handles 30 trains a day, including four halting and 26 non-halting trains.
The single line between Netravathi Cabin and Central and the limited number of platforms had affected introduction of more trains.

BHUBANESWAR: The railways has allocated Rs 8.95 crore for construction of a bypass on the Khurda Road-Vizianagaram route to reduce congestion at Khurda Road station. This will help direct trains between south India and Puri to avoid Khurda Road station and take the bypass instead, a railway source said. The 1.61 km track will be constructed between Argul and Haripur passenger halts under the Khurda railway division. "Now trains have to make way to Khurda Road station and wait for signal to take the Puri route. After the bypass gets ready, it will get rid of the delay. Trains can go directly to Puri from Argul station," a railway source said. The project had received in-principle sanction last year. "The bypass will be constructed at an estimated cost of Rs 25 crore, which includes land acquisition, laying of track, signalling and overhead wires. It will be completed by end of March...

Last year also the railways had allotted Rs 200 crore for this project. Consistent in sanctioning fund for consecutive two financial years will boost the project work. This year, the state government had demanded Rs 200 for this project sanctioned in 1996-97 and the Centre fulfilled the demand. But it was getting meager amount for the project before 2016-17. In 2015-16, the Railways had thrown a spanner for the project by allotting a meager amount of Rs 36.8 crore though the state government had demanded Rs 300 crore for this project to include Kendrapada district in railways map.

The required lands measuring an area of 1,780 acres for the proposed project of constructing 82 km stretch railway line, which will cover three districts- Kendrapada, Jagatsinghpur and Jajpur.
