The 287.67-km-long third line, part of the Grand Trunk route, is expected to be completed in 6 years
: The Central government has given its approval for the construction of the third rail line between Vijayawada and Gudur Junction at an estimated cost of Rs.3,246.60 crore.
The expected completion cost of the project, approved by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is pegged at Rs.3,875.68 crore.
287.67-km-long third line, part of the Grand Trunk route connecting the northern and southern States, is expected to be completed in six years.
The section contributes significantly to the movement of foodgrain to the southern States and it would augment services of freight trains catering to demands at various loading points.
