Minister of state (railways) Manoj Sinha on Sunday said the government has decided to cut down the shelf period of the Pune-Nashik rail route from two years to six months.
The 265-km rail route is to be built at a cost of Rs 2,425 core.The work on the project is expected to start in the next six months.
“Our government has accepted the Nashik ­ Pune route proposal during this budget and the preliminary works were carried out on priority basis.We now expect the project to beginin six months from now,“ Sinha said.

He said the ministry has outlined their priority to ensurethat the trains reach their destinations on time with safe ty.
Expectations were riding Sinha's first visit to Nashik, especially towards some concrete announcement for the development of the city, where the Central Railway have over 125 acre land lying vacant since acquisition in 1973.
Sinha, however, simply said the priority of the ministry is to run trains on time and other things would be taken up as and when required.
“Railways need not construct hospitals and run them along with schools and then take care of its people. Instead, we would like to focus on operating our trains on time to the destinations and help people travel safely,“ Sinha said, refuting any scope of development of Traction Machine Workshop (TMW) in the near future.
The minister dedicated the footover bridge, platform number 4, ticket booking window and the toilet block under Accessible India Campaign to public, over a year after they were constructed and used.
He, however, referred to the works being carried out in the state. He said the rate of investment by the ministry has increased multi-fold after the BJP came to power at the Centre.
“As against the times when the Congress-led governments invested Rs 1,532 crore in a single year for Maharashtra, the BJP has invested Rs 4,458 crore in 2015-16 and Rs 4,767 crore in 2016-17 in Maharashtra to increase the railway network and railway development,“ he said.
On horticulture train for onions, the minister said the the Central Railway had started the project in some places and soon a similar train would be started in Nashik for transportation of onion. “We are considering starting the train in Nashik as well. Slowly, but surely, we will have one train in place,“ Sinha said.
