HYDERABAD: The Guntakal-Kallur, an important 41 km bypass single rail line that serves as the shortest route for trains from Delhi, Mumbai and Secunderabad towards Bengaluru, had to face severe congestion due to over-saturation of routes.
The successful completion of the doubling of Guntakal-Khaderpet section should take care of this congestion. Previously the trains were running with more than the actual section capacity at 124 per cent.
The 34-km Guntakal-Khaderpet section was completed and commissioned on May 8 with the running of goods train on the newly constructed double line.

project was sanctioned in 2015-16 for a distance of 41 km with an estimated cost of Rs 323 crore. The first phase of doubling the Guntakal-Khaderpet section for a distance of 23 km was completed in September 2018 followed by the recent 11 km stretch of Guntakal-Gulapalyamu. The stations that have been facilitated by the doubling works are Guntakal, Hanuman station (halt station) Gulapalyamu, Venkatampalle, Kalluru and Khaderpet. It also serves as an alternative route for Guntakal-Gooty section, which is also over-saturated.
Furthermore, the doubling of this section will be helpful to run more number of freight trains seamlessly. Also, the construction of high-level platforms at Hanuman, Gulapalyamu, Venkatampalle, Khaderpet Stations are under progress.

South Central Railway CPRO told Zee Business Online that once operational, this section will not only reduce train delays on the route but will also provide for faster movement.
In good news for Indian Railways commuters, travelling to Bengaluru from northern and eastern India and vice-versa is all set to get a boost in the coming days. The work on the new Guntakal–Kalluru section of the South Central Railway is in full swing and is expected to get completed in this financial year. The new route will also fulfill the dreams of Rayalaseema people to have better rail connectivity and more trains will be fulfilled with the completion of the project.

Central Railway CPRO Ch Rakesh told Zee Business Online that once operational, this section will not only reduce train delays on the route but will also provide for faster movement.
"The existing Gooty to Guntakal section that provides the connectivity between these regions is already over saturated. The Guntakal – Kalluru section will provide the second alternative with the double line. It will reduce stress on the existing section and will also provide for the faster movement of the trains," said Rakesh.
He said that the railways is according top priority to the Guntakal-Kalluru Doubling and Electrification project to improve the mobility of train operations. The doubling and electrification of the balance stretches between Guntakal–Gulapalyamu & Khadarpet-Kalluru for a distance of 17.36 Kms are under fast progress and targeted to be completed by March 31, 2019.
"The Guntakal-Kalluru Doubling & Electrification project is an important by-pass rail line for a distance of 41 Kms connecting the main line in which trains from Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad are run towards Bengaluru. So far the doubling and electrification work between Gulapalyamu-Khadarpet for a distance of 23 Kms have been completed and commissioned," he said. 
The project was sanctioned in the year 2015-16 with an estimated cost of Rs 357 Crore. The expenditure incurred on this project from 2016-17 to 2018-19 (till date) is Rs 210 Crore. 
The section between Guntakal and Kalluru is like a bye-pass line to Guntakal from Bengaluru. It is a bottleneck presently with a single line but is the most accessible shortest route to many important cities of southern states, from where railway lines going towards Hyderabad, Raichur, Bellary, Hubli, Goa and the National capital New Delhi. Many important trains linking Bangalore with other cities, including the Rajdhani Express (Delhi), Basava Express (Bagalkot), Hampi Express (Hubli), Gorakhpur Express and Garibrath Express (Delhi) and other non-daily trains operate on this route connecting from Bengaluru to North, East & Western parts of India via Guntakal station.
This route also serves the goods train and the freight traffic mainly contains iron ore, cement, steel, etc. There is a number of cement factories in the neighboring districts of Kadapa, Kurnool, Bellary & Gulbarga which are feeding the cement traffic on this route. 
Potential and prospects:
The double line i.e Guntakal - Kalluru section is passing through drought affected Anantapur District of Andhra Pradesh. This double line which is connecting Guntakal, Dharmavaram and Bangalore without touching Gooty will enhance the passenger services and mobility of the people residing in the region, which acts as a catalyst for the socio-economic progress of the people. 
Presently, there are 15 pairs of passenger trains (including non- daily) running in the section and doubling and electrification will provide facilities to increase the number of train services.
Doubling of this line is very crucial in order to run more number of goods trains in a seamless manner.

The South Central Railway (SCR), which has set a scorching pace in electrification of railway lines in the last couple of years, intends to continue the work with an aim to completely electrify the entire track of about 6,000 km within the next three years.
General Manager Vinod Kumar Yadav said 600 km was electrified last year and the same length would likely be completed before the end of this financial year.
“We have done about 3,000 km of electrification so far. This year, we have finalised technical bids for about 800 km,
...

while financial bids will be called for another 1,100 km. Survey work for the remaining 1,100 km is on. We aim to complete the last section by March 2022 at the current pace which itself will be a record,” he explained in an exclusive interaction.
It is not just the Railway Board delegating more powers to the GMs that has bolstered his drive towards achieving greater efficiency, but the newly-introduced guidelines of not calling for any work tenders unless the entire pre-project work is completed. It includes detailed project report with complete drawings, technical and financial details and time schedules among others. “We have introduced pre-cast concrete foundation blocks, mechanisation for digging, mast erections and power cabling too to keep up with the time-lines, while ensuring that the civil, signalling, traffic and electric wings work in proper coordination so that normal train services are not effected,” said Mr. Yadav. Incidentally, he was part of the GMs’ working group that recommended the new work guidelines and these have been accepted by the RB, but put into practice countrywide now. Among the key sections likely to be commissioned this year are: Guntakal-Kalluru, Guntakal-Toranagallu, Nallapadu-Pagidipalli, Peddapalli-Lingampet-Jagityal, Manmad-Mudkhed-Dhone, Obulavaripalli-Krishnapatnam and various suburban sections under MMTS Phase-II. In Nallapadu-Guntakal section, Nallapadu-Diguvametta (209 km), Guntakal-Dhone and Gooty-Pendekallu (97 km) and Dhone-Diguvametta (129km) are already done. For Manmad-Mudkhed-Dhone section, the tender is being finalised as of now. For these, Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL), Central Organisation for Railway Electrification (CORE) and Tata Projects are the implementing agencies.
“Electrification helps railways become energy-efficient and faster, reduces operational and maintenance cost, helps in increasing speed, besides reducing dependence on fuel imports,” adds the GM.
