Pune: In what is good news for Maharashtra passengers, the NITI (National Institute for Transforming India) Aayog has given its appraisal note for the electrification of the Pune-Miraj-Kolhapur line.
The NITI Aayog’s approval is for the single line, currently in place as well as for the second line that is proposed to be built between the two cities. At current prices, the cost of electrification of the two lines­— totalling 692 kilometres of tracks – would be Rs 513 crore, officials said.
The route, currently a single line, has got congested due to
the increase in passenger footfall as well as goods traffic between the two cities and a second line is now an urgent requirement. A sum of Rs 1.27 crore had been allotted for the preliminary engineering and traffic survey for the second line. While Rs 27 lakhs has already been spent on the survey, this year’s railway budget allotted the remaining Rs 1 crore as well in order to complete the survey so that physical work on laying the line could begin.
For the moment, the project looks a win-win situation for passengers as well as the railways. Current calculations show that the project has a rate of retun of 35 per cent, which means we can recoup the entire amount spent in about 3-4 years.
While a second line will allow more passenger trains to run on the route— up from the current 12-18 per day— the real benefits, CR officials said, was for the goods traffic. “Electrification will allow us to run goods trains with a total payload of 5,800 tons. This would be an increase of more than 50 per cent in payload which in turn brings that much more revenue and also saves time. Time saved on a route allows us to add trains” said a senior CR official.

I think no problem with land, CR is quite slow on progress. Another example, one of the oldest BG line between Daund and Kalaburagi(GR) part of bombay-madras line is being doubled now.

CR is very very slow compare to other division. Final Location survey, land Acquisition and Tenders are done long time back. Sufficient fund already allocated to this project. Still no ground work started yet. This project it will take 20 yr for compilation, If this kind of delay happen.
