Gondia railway station:
Gondia railway station serves Gondia in Gondia district in the Indian state of Maharashtra. The Nagpur Chattisgarh Railway started construction of the 240 km (149 mi) Nagpur-Rajnandgaon section in 1878, after surveys were started in 1871. The Nagpur-Tumsar Road section was opened in April 1880 and the Tumsar Road-Rajnandgaon section in December 1880.
The Bengal Nagpur Railway was formed in 1887 for the purpose of upgrading the Nagpur Chhattisgarh Railway and then extending it via Bilaspur to Asansol. The Bengal Nagpur Railway main line from Nagpur to Asansol, on the Howrah-Delhi main line, was opened for goods traffic on 1 February 1891.
The Gondia- Nagbhir- Nagpur line was opened for traffic in 1908. The Gondia- Nainpur line of the Satpura narrow gauge lines was opened on 13 April 1903.
Work for conversion to broad gauge of the 240 km (149 mi) narrow gauge Gondia-Chanda Fort line started in December 1992. The first phase covering Gondia-Wadsa section was inaugurated on 25 September1994. The second phase covering the Wadsa-Nagbhir section was opened on 20 February 1997. The fourth phase covering Nagbhir- Chanda Fort section was opened on 13 January 1999 and the Chandafort-Balharshah section was operated from 2 July 1999. The Gondia-Balaghat section narrow gauge section was closed from January 2003 for conversion to broad gauge. It was opened for traffic on 6 September 2005. The route from Balaghat to Katangi was converted from narrow gauge to broad gauge in 2010 and the route from Katangi to Tirodi is now under conversion. The Gondia-Jabalpur gauge conversion project is an approved project.
The Paniajob-Gondia and Gondia-Bhandara Road sections were electrified in 1990-91.
The Gondia-Balaghat section of the Gondia-Jabalpur line has already been up graded to broad gauge and the conversion of the rest of the line is approved. Once this is completed the Delhi-Chennai distance will be reduced by around 250 km. Gondia will become a meeting point of the East-West and North-South cross country routes.
