Mhow: The Mhow- Kalakund rail line will be a heritage line, solely for the purpose of tourism after railway authorities officially announced that the gauge conversion work of Mhow-Khandwa rail line will start shortly.
The track between Mhow and Kalakund passes through picturesque mountains, valleys, tunnels, ravines and crosses Choral and Malendi rivers at many points which makes the journey very beautiful, especially between July and March. The rail route was built by the British about 150 years back and passes through hills and valleys of Vindhyachal mountain ranges. It has everything that is needed to become a favorite destination. Besides, its proximity to Indore (32 kilometers from Indore railway station) makes it all the more accessible.
four years back, the then MD of Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation had visited the area and explored the possibilities of the area as a tourist destination. He had also discussed with railway officials about a special train to be run between Mhow and Choral railway stations. Presently, length of railway track between Mhow and Balwara is 38 km and after the new alignment of track, the distance will become 53 km.
The last gauge conversion work of the railways from meter gauge to broad gauge in Malwa- Nimar region will start shortly and with it the last meter gauge line between Mhow and Khandwa will be converted to broad gauge line. The work will shortly start from Khandwa side.
The most important aspect of this project is that the track has been re-aligned in such a way that it will pass through the plains via Simrole.

WR will take 10 yrs to complete it!!! I am not sure this project will complete & trains will start on this route. Plz follow "Simrol to Akhileshwar Temple to Katkut to Balwara" route, there will not be need of tunnel work.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
