Railways had conducted a traffic cum engineering survey and submitted their feasibility report in Jan 2014 with total length of direct link from Rajpura to Chandigarh via Zirakpur as 39 km with estimate of 692 cr with ROR of (-) -6.05 % ls see let's see what they do now.
The reply I received is as under :
Dear Sir, It is not correct that there is no link between Patiala and Chandigarh or from Bathinda to Chandigarh. Patiala is existing crossing station on Rajpura-Bathinda section whereas Chandigarh Jn. is
situated between Kalka-Ambala Cant. existing section. Total indirect rail distance between Patiala and chandigarh via Rajpura jn. And Ambala is 98.23kms. For making direct link between these locations, a reconnaissance Engg. cum Traffic survey for a new line between Rajpura-Chandigarh via Zirakpur was conducted whose report was submitted to Railway in Jan, 2014 with the following details given as under : Project length- 33.100km. Project Cost- 692.82 crores Rate of Return - (-)6.05%p.a. In this way, by connecting direct Chandigarh to Patiala, Total rail length will become 58.44km which will be shorter route than indirect route as mentioned above by 39.79km. Similiarly, indirect existing rail distance between Chandigarh to Bathinda via Dhuri, Rajpura and Ambala is 246.27km,
