Margao: Part doubling of the Konkan Railway route, setting up of new stations, route electrification and other capacity enhancement works that are under way, will boost tourism in the Konkan region, deputy general manager (public relations) of the Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd, Baban Ghatge, said. Doubling of the 46km Veer Roha section is expected to be completed by the year-end, while electrification of the 740km-long Konkan Railway route is likely to be complete by 2020. Ghatge said construction of a fifth platform and an additional line was also in progress at the Margao railway station.The Konkan Railway’s capacity augmentation project comprises 141km doubling of critical portions, development of 11 new stations, addition of eight loop lines to increase line capacity and route electrification. While one loop line has already been commissioned at Murdeshwar, Karnataka, the rest are expected to be completed by this December or early months of 2020.Ghatge told TOI...
that capacity augmentation was aimed at reducing travel time and providing better amenities to passengers. “Development of new stations will lead to the division of block sections, thus reducing the time wasted on train crossings at stations,” he explained.Electrification of the entire route, which is estimated to cost Rs 1,400 crore, is being executed by two separate agencies from both ends of the route to ensure speedy completion. For this purpose, the route has been divided into two sections: One from Roha in Maharashtra to Verna, and the second from Verna to Thokur in Mangaluru.

MAO SVM and SVM QLM doubling works are going at great pace might get completed by Q2 or Q3 of 2021 if continues at same pace.
Regarding Majorda Vasco I had read somewhere on internet it was stuck due to some land acquisition around Vasco outers areas ie. as per a SWR official he did not mention objections at Majorda and Cansaulim.
There are some houses on the hills at VSG outers which needs to be destroyed so those people will have to be reallocated to other areas as compensation that
is the reason the official cited. Now regarding those houses and their residents most of the people residing in those houses are not Goan natives they are Non Goans. Now see the fun those who oppose doubling in the name of environment and heritage buildings are the same people who want to throw those outsiders Non Goans out of Goa.
Regarding the heritage buildings those are only located in between Majorda to Cansaulim around 5 kms and I don't think for laying new tracks those buildings will have to be demolished. These people are simply anti-establishment kind of.
Also who cares of the Portuguese heritage the same Portuguese who murdered thousands of Goans in the name of religion ?
I'm a native Goan and can clearly tell you the only obstruction for Majorda Vasco doubling is the reallocation of the people at VSG outers whose houses will be gone.

Is there enough space at Dabolim stn ? If yes, while Doubling SWR should seriously think of shifting MPT Main lines/Freight lines from Vasco stn. to Dabolim area. In that way additional Infrastructure for Passenger traffic can be utilised.
By the way, there is some land besides Vasco stn ( mostly south), near that school. Who owns that land any idea ?

Dabolim there is not much scope. I think they are planning on laying some stabling lines at Chandor Railway station. There was a BTPN terminal at VSG on the tracks branching towards MPT demolished now also a BCNA loading was there. The tracks branching towards MPT there is scope to develop two to three stabling lines.

- doubling project of Konkan Railway was initiated by the then RM Mr. Prabhu.
- However, there were confusing reports in past regarding the project
- It was reported that Mr. Prabhu wanted to go for full stretch doubling of KR at cost of 10000-15000 Cr. Rs.
- Later it was reported that doubling shall be done in 3 patches i.e. from Roha
& Mangalore (Manglore-Udupi)ends, in addition to small stretch in Goa sector.
- Finally work could start from Roha to Veer (47 kms) which is likely to be completed in a year or two. Work from southern end/ Goa sector has probably not started yet. It was reported that work from Veer to Chiplun (81 kms) shall also be taken up.
- With departure of Mr Prabhu from Rly Ministry, KR doubling is no longer a priority. However, electrification is going on briskly, in line with IR policy to electrify all BG routes in coming few years.

MARGAO: The Rs 1,400 crore electrification work of the 740-km Konkan railway route is expected to be complete by December 2020.Deputy general manager, public relations of Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd (KRCL), Baban Ghatge told TOI that the electrification work is under way from both ends of the route simultaneously. “The section has been divided in two parts - from Roha in Maharshtra to Verna in Goa and from Verna to Thokur in Mangaluru,” Ghatge said. He also said that the project started in September 2017, is in its final stages in many parts of the route. Sources claim that with diesel-run locomotives, time is wasted in engine fuelling and further leading to delays. “Electrification will save both, money and time, while trains will be able to ply at higher speeds, thereby reducing travel time,” sources said. The project also entails civil works, including modification of bridges, provision of gauge height at...
level crossings, provision of protective screens and mast foundation on bridge piers, etc. KRCL has raised most of the funds for the project on its own and while part of it from public funds.

konkan railway will travel with increased speed
निसर्ग सौंदर्याने नटलेल्या कोकणच्या भूमीतून जाणाऱ्या कोकण रेल्वेचा प्रवास येत्या काही वर्षांत आणखी वेगवान होणार आहे. सध्या एक लाइन असलेल्या या मार्गावर दोन गाड्या क्रॉस होताना होणारा विलंब टाळण्यासाठी २१ नवीन क्रासिंग स्टेशन उभारण्यात येत असून, त्यांचे कामही सुरू झाले आहे; तसेच या संपूर्ण मार्गाचे विद्युतीकरणही करण्यात येत आहे.
मुंबई आणि मेंगळुरूला जोडणाऱ्या कोकण रेल्वेची स्थापना २६ जानेवारी १९९८ मध्ये करण्यात आली. त्या वेळी या मार्गावर एकूण ६६ स्टेशन होती. आता नव्याने उभारण्यात येणाऱ्या २१ नवीन स्टेशनमुळे ही संख्या ८७ वर पोहोचणार आहे; तसेच या
२१ स्टेशनच्या प्रकल्पामुळे स्थानिकांना मोठा रोजगार उपलब्ध होणार आहे, अशी माहिती कोकण रेल्वेचे विभागीय महाव्यवस्थापक महंमद असीफ सुलेमान यांनी पत्रकारांच्या पाहणी दौऱ्यावेळी दिली. कोकण रेल्वेचे वरिष्ठ वाणिज्य व्यवस्थापक सुनील नारकर, वरिष्ठ जनसंपर्क अधिकारी गिरीश करंदीकर या वेळी उपस्थित होते.
दरम्यान, कोकण रेल्वेवरील रोहा ते वेरना आणि वेरना ते ठोकूर या दोन टप्यांचे विद्युतीकरण करण्यात येत आहे. रोहा ते वेरनापर्यंतचे काम एल अँड टी आणि वेरना ते ठोकूरपर्यंतचे काम कल्पतरू कंपनीस देण्यात आले आहे. या दोन्ही कामांसाठी १,११० कोटी रुपये खर्च अपेक्षित असून, हे काम तीन वर्षांत पूर्ण करण्याचा मानस आहे, असेही सुलेमान यांनी सांगितले.
कोकणातील बंदरांच्या विकासाला चालना
नव्याने उभारण्यात येणारी २१ पैकी आठ स्टेशन महाराष्ट्रातील असतील. त्यामध्ये इंदापूर, गोरेगाव रोड, सापे वामने, कलंबानी, कडवई, वेरावल्ली, खारेपाटण, अचिर्णे आदी स्टेशन आहेत. या नवीन स्टेशनच्या व मार्गाच्या विद्युतीकरणाचा मोठा लाभ कोकणातील बंदरांना आणि उद्योगांना होईल, असा विश्वास वरिष्ठ जनसंपर्क अधिकारी गिरीश करंदीकर यांनी व्यक्त केला.
खर्चात बचत
कोकण रेल्वेचा विद्युतीकरणामुळे डिझेलवरील खर्चात ३० टक्के बचत होणार आहे. या सर्वांना पुरक म्हणून कर्नाटकात बाली येथे सर्वांत मोठा ‘लॉजिस्टीक पार्क’ विकसित होत आहे. यामुळे नजिकच्या काळात कोकण रेल्वेवर कंटेनरची वाहतूक मोठ्या प्रमाणावर वाढून कोकण रेल्वेचे उत्पन्न वाढण्यास मदत होण्याची शक्यता आहे.
धुरांच्या रेषेतून मुक्ती
कोकण रेल्वे मार्गावर रोहा ते ठोकूर या ७४१ किमी मार्गाचे विद्युतीकरणाचे कामही प्रशासनाने हाती घेतले आहे. येत्या तीन वर्षांत हे काम पूर्ण होणे अपेक्षित आहे. त्यामुळे गेल्या कित्येक वर्षांपासून धुरांच्या रेषा हवेत सोडत धावणारी रेल्वे आता विद्युत इंजिनावर धावणार आहे.
