RANCHI: The capital city of Jharkhand to soon meet its neighbour metrocity through the shortest route. DRM HWH on Saturday has confirmed the status of work in Arambagh-Bishnupur new line. Express and passenger trains especially from Purulia and few more from Ranchi will find its way through Arambagh. The speed limit in VSU-AMBG section is set to 100 kmph for express/passenger trains and 80 kmph for EMUs. Limit will be increased to 110 kmph in consecutive years after inauguration.
Track laying is in full force between Maynapur and Kamarpukur stations under VSU-AMBG section. Once this completes by next year, it will open new gateway to decongest other routes. Between Maynapur and Goghat in HWH/ER lies the gap to be filled in a
year or so.

Bhaba dighi issue seems to be sorted out. DM Hoogly has already claimed,"When there is a matter of thousands and lakhs compared to fifty, compensation shifts it's side." The lake won't be filled completely. The line is single as of now. Maynapur-Goghat stretch length is about 26 km.

12817 has maximum pax or Delhi than 12801. Even 12440 does not have GNWL which is quite strange. The quota allocation of few trains is really not good for BKSC.
