Jamnagar City Railway News Saurashtra Gujarat India

2,000 km meter gauge lines to be converted into broad gauge soon.

Gujarat, despite its industrial growth, happens to be the only state in the country, which has almost 2,000 kilometer meter gauge lines.

Western Railway (WR) now promises to convert them to broad gauge, with work to begin on 600 kilometre over the next three years. This was an assurance given by minister of state for railways KH Muniyappa on Monday while informing that a budget of Rs 362.62 crore has been earmarked for this purpose and project worth Rs 60.72 crore has been earmarked for new lines.

Muniyappa also invited the Gujarat government to a 50 per cent partnership in the process of doubling of railway tracks between key port towns and high passenger traffic lines. "We have succeeded in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Jharkhand. This is a public service and Gujarat has an excellent track record in terms of partnerships in key infrastructure projects."

According to general manager, WR, RM Verma, two stations in Gujarat -- Ahmedabad and Porbandar -- have been included for upgradation to world standards.

For this, plans are being drawn. Also, Gandhidham and Vadodara stations have been selected for establishing multi-functional complexes.

Nearly 30 stations, which includes Anand City, Dwarka , Jamnagar City, Nadiad City, Rajkot City, Surendranagar City and Okha in the state, will be developed as model stations.
