To create robust infrastructure for the country’s rail freight, the Railways is planning four more dedicated freight corridors of combined length of 4,000 km at a cost of Rs 1.8 lakh crore. A detailed feasibility study is being undertaken and the report is expected to be prepared by December 2021.
The plan is to commission the proposed corridors by 2030.
Just imagine what will happen to CKP-Rajkharswan area after this....
Already Rajkharswan is very important junction from freight point of view already DPS side 3 tracks mainly for freight, and the Tata-CKP is also now triple line section.
And now two Dedicated Freight Corridors going to cross RKSN!!!!
In view of heavy freight rise in 2016-17, the then DRM of Adra division proposed a dedicated freight route from Damodar to Chandil and tripling of Burnpur-Chandil section with better signalling system to ease passenger traffic. However, only the tripling part received approval from board back then. Present DRM Naveen Kumar had put forward a DFC proposal parallel to this section to which this may have been the reaction. Alignment of EDFC in ASN-DGR section will pass through north side of Asansol, Kalipahari, Andal and Durgapur. We can expect Andal to be junction point for these DFCs along with a sizable stabling yard.

Kharagpur-Uluberia-Dankuni Freight Corridor was also not discussed earlier, this is also new one.
There is a road under bridge between Andal station and yard which limits the number of tracks passing over it. In order to increase platform length railways has to demolish the whole bridge. State government objected to it unless a viable alternative is made available cause that's the only road connecting point of north and south in the town and Kazi Nazrul Islam airport on continuation.
