It should be routed via Nakodar in Firozpur Jalandhar section and via Taran Taran in Beas Amritsar section. Would help avoiding two reversals, one at Jalandhar and another at Amritsar.
This is in line with railway new policy of zero based time table.
A good idea.. For all trains which have reversal at ASR while going to PTK should be diverted via TTO as it will be just 20 - 30 minutes more run time but that will be covered from the time required in reversal.
By any chance.. I heard about a bypass at PTK for trains going towards JAT from ASR.. Does anyone have any status update about that
Bharoli Bypass was proposed in 2016/17. But work still not have started
You mean it is offical sanctioned by railway and work can start at any time?
Infact this train should be routed through amritsar jalandhar ludhiana dhuri hisar sadulpur churu ratangarh jodhpur....bi weekly
Railway can build a bye pass or satellite station at manawala and connect to verka for trains coming to asr and going to pathankot jammu katra....so that reversal can b avoided at amritsar junction..and bye pass at amritsar and pathankot will improve connectivity of our region as more and more trains can b run via this route
Wow, a new train dli lnk special via nro.

Booking already started.

Details of special train.
Nakodar is one of the major town in Punjab. It is an industrial hub with an estimated population of one million.
Its 45 years old station and there is a long pending demand for direct connection with national capital.Many NRI reside here and for their journey to delhi airport they only have option to go to either ludhaina or jalandhar. Its peer city like Jagraon, Moga, Kotkapura, Hoshiarpur have already got direct train to Delhi.
Please note that Supreme court, Chandigarh had already issued an order to finalize about direct connection
Sorry, did not understand.
In this article one line says, " Please note that Supreme court, Chandigarh had already issued an order....".
There is only high court in Chandigarh
They should have routed it via phillaur nakodar lohian khas Jalandhar but that would have involved one reversal at lohian khas
Oh that is even longer route.
Finally they did. Super excited. /blog/post/4437987
