Guntakal - Kalluru section is an important by-pass rail line for a distance of 41 Kms which serves as a shortest and alternative route for trains from Delhi, Mumbai and Secunderabad towards Bengaluru. Guntakal - Kalluru section as a single line section faced severe congestion due to over-saturation and trains were running with more than section capacity up to 124%. Hence, Doubling of Guntakal - Kalluru section was taken up as top priority and works were speeded up in the last 2 years. Doubling of Guntakal - Khadarpet section (34 Kms) is successfully completed and commissioned on 8th May, 2019 with running of Goods train on newly constructed Double Line.
Doubling project of Guntakal - Kalluru was sanctioned in the year
so GTL-KLU shortcut will reduce distance by 17 kms.
GTL-DMM via GY-KLU is 118 kms.
GTL-DMM via KDT-KLU is 101 kms.
