Pune: The Central Railway (CR) plans to build a chord line on the Pune-Manmad route which will bypass Daund station and help speed up long distance trains travelling on this route.
Sources from the Pune railway division said that plans are underway to bypass Daund station in the future and schedule long distance trains directly through Pune-Manmad route.
At present, many long distance trains travelling from Pune to places like Delhi, Howrah, Chandigarh among others are plied through Daund and Manmad.
Pune, trains first travel up to Daund. From Daund, the trains have to change their direction to travel up to Manmad. For changing direction, the engine has to be attached to the train on the other side. The process of changing engines takes over 40 minutes of time which could be avoided,” said sources from the railway.
They added that at present, there are plans that instead of travelling to Daund and changing engines for travelling up to Manmad, a chord line can be constructed two to three kilometres before Daund station.
This will help bypass Daund station thus saving one to two hours, said the sources. Officials from the Pune railway division said that plans for having a chord line are already in place but it would take close to two to three years for the work to get completed.
President of Railway Pravasi Group Harsha Shah said that it will be a welcome move if in the future, Daund station can be bypassed and long distance trains can be routed directly on the Pune-Manmad route.
“Daund is a technical halt for all long distance trains and not a commercial halt. This halt is mainly for changing the engine. If this can be avoided, then, long distance trains will be able to save two hours which will be very beneficial,”
added Shah.

120km of new line requires 1000-1200 cr and to complete in next 3 yrs requires 200 cr allocation in 2017-18 budget and should increase over the years. They are many lines all over the country which are surveyed premilinary works started Yeats back and still waiting for allocation and this line is surveyed in 2015-16 land acquisition has to be done and we can't expect it do be complete in next 3 yrs. The only alternative to cut some running time is to construct bypass at daund in 1yr on pirioity basis.
