PUNE: Daily commuters will soon be able to take local trains to Daund as the much-awaited electrification of Pune-Daund railway track is expected to get over in 2015. About 70% of the work is complete including erection of electric poles along the track. Power stations at Yevat and Daund and laying of overhead high-tension wires is likely to be completed by August which will facilitate trial runs.
The electrification of Pune-Daund-Bhigvan track was proposed long back, but the actual work started in December 2012. Authorities had set a three-year target
to complete it. Officials said that the administration is holding talks with the farmers whose lands are to be acquired for setting up the power stations. A schedule to operate blocks for laying overhead wires will be finalized soon. The work is being planned in phases to avoid major disturbances to daily schedules of trains, a senior officer told TOI.
The Pune-Daund-Bhigvan route is a part of Pune-Solapur rail link which further connects to Chennai and Bangalore. The link is vital as most long distance trains to southern parts are on this route. There was a long pending demand to complete electrification of Pune-Solapur section as the rail track between Mumbai-Lonavla and Pune is already electrified.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
