Oct 22 2013 (15:39)   Konkan Railway, with 2,000 bridges and 91 tunnels, is an engineering marvel

Mumbai/ Mangalore: The Konkan Railway is a railway line which runs along the Konkan coast of India. It was constructed and is operated by the Konkan Railway Corporation. It runs from Thokur, near Mangalore in Karnataka to Roha railway station in Maharashtra through Goa, along the west coast of the country and Western Ghats.

It is known as an engineering marvel across the world. Built across some of the toughest terrains, Konkan Railways has over 2,000 bridges and 91 tunnels. The project was considered the biggest and perhaps most difficult railway
undertaking during this century, at least in this part of the world.

The idea to construct the railway line was conceived to connect the two important port cities of Mangalore and Mumbai.

Prior to Konkan Railways, people travelling to Mumbai from Mangalore and adjoining areas would go to Kadur or Birur by bus and then catch a train to Mumbai (Bombay then). In 1970's National Highway 17 (NH-17) was built to connect these cities by road. Direct bus services started between these two cities after the construction of NH-17. Even though economic reasons provided a strong need to connect these two cities, the region through which the railway track passed was geographically very tough and would be an engineering challenge. Due to the uneven terrain of the region, railway lines were not laid for many years.

The Konkan Railway Corporation Limited (KRCL) was incorporated as a public limited company under the Companies Act, 1956, with its headquarters at CBD Belapur in Navi Mumbai and E. Sreedharan, a senior railway official, as its first Chairman and Managing Director, though the work to build the railway line had started much earlier.

There were challenges posed by the terrain and the elements. Flash floods, landslides and tunnel collapses affected work at many places on the project. The region was also thickly forested, and construction sites were often plagued by wild animals. Despite these problems, work on the project continued, and an effective system of decentralisation enabled better efficiency. The entire stretch of 740 kilometres was divided into seven sectors - Mahad, Ratnagiri north, Ratnagiri south, Kudal, Panaji, Karwar and Udupi - of approximately 100 km each, headed by a Chief Engineer.
