Addressing the huge gathering on the occasion, the Prime Minister said that the Centre & Telangana Government joining hands to take up projects together reflects a positive sign of co-operative federalism towards taking the nation
forward. Elaborating on the role of Railways in nation’s growth, he stated that rail connectivity is vital for development and infrastructure growth is the need which serves this task. Economic progress and Railway connectivity go hand in hand for National progress, he stressed.
Although the people of the state have wanted the rail line between Manoharabad and Kothapalli for a long time, their wish is fulfilled only today with the laying of foundation stone for the new line, the Prime Minister added and expressed confidence that the project will see fulfillment as scheduled.
K.Chandrasekhar Rao, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Telangana, in his speech stated that the Manoharabad-Kothapalli new Railway line will basically serve as a much needed direct rail link connecting Hyderabad with Karimnagar. The taking up of this project fulfills a long cherished dream of the people, he added. He acknowledged that the dynamism of Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu in resolving issues very fast, which enabled the work on Hyderabad Metro Rail to proceed smooth. Earlier, Bandaru Dattatreya, welcomed the Prime Minister, other dignitaries in his brief address.
Salient Features of New Railway Line:
The Manoharabad-Kothapalli new Railway line, to a length of 150 kms is being taken up at an anticipated cost of Rs.1160 Crore.
The new line will directly connect Hyderabad with Karimnagar for the first time by rail, passing through places hitherto not on the Railway map.
The new rail line majorly covers a stretch of 88 kms in Medak District & 59 kms in Karimnagar District with a small balance of 4 kms falling in Warangal District in between.
The new line will have 13 Railway stations enroute, in addition to already existing Manoharabad and Kothapalli. These are Nacharam, Iranagaram, Gajwel, Kodakandla, Lakdaram, Duddeda, Siddipet, Gurralagondi, Chinna Lingapur, Sircilla, Vemulavada, Boinpally and Wedira.
With the major locations on the route being important towns of Telangana, the new line holds immense potential for rise in economic activity and development.
On completion, the new line will reduce travel time between various stations enroute.
The new line linkage holds the added benefit of acting as a viable alternative route between Secunderabad-New Delhi via Karimnagar.
