If phaltan-baramati is in doubling target for 2017-18 then it is sure the doubling will complete this year. I dont find the doubling target list of 2017-18. for me pune-miraj doubling is important bcz it connect maharashtra to karnataka & all south indians states and it is congested routes many trains of CR, SWR & all other zones trains from all over india going north south using this routes. Pune-miraj route is saturated now. It will help kolhapur pune peoples to come mumbai comfortable & more faster. So it is need of the hour doubling & electrification of pune-miraj route are main demands of peoples from many decades of pune-miraj-kolhapur.
phaltan-baramati is a new line NOT doubling. it is just 24 km of new line left. when completed - an alternate route from miraj to DD. it will hardly take a year if funds are given. a solution as i pointed out to most of the problems. .... more...
this doubling, electrification of pune-miraj will take a lot of funds and years if not a decade atleast. in 1 year if a solution is available, then that should be priority.
