CCEA approves doubling of Pune-Miraj-Londa railway line
New Delhi, May 25 (IBNS): The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has given its approval for doubling of Pune-Miraj-Londa railway line project at an estimated cost of Rs.3,627.47 crore and expected completion cost of Rs.4,246.84 crore with 5% escalation per annum.
The length of the railway line will be 467 km. The completion period of the project will be five years.
Besides travelling people, industries in and around Miraj-Londa section will have additional transport capacity to meet their requirements.
Doubling of this line will greatly ease the ever increasing freight traffic between Pune-Miraj-Londa section thereby increasing the revenue of Railways.
Miraj is a junction station on Londa to Mumbai double line route via Sangli, Karad, Satara. The Pune-Miraj section is non-electrified single line on diesel traction and it is oversaturated. The additional traffic running over and above 100% of utilization is proposed to be diverted on the proposed doubling.
The doubling of the section would come as an advantage as it would strengthen the rail network necessary to operate more passenger trains with increased speed and better efficiency.
