Work on Wardha-Nanded railway line to start soon

NAGPUR: Around 90% of the land required for the Wardha-Yavatmal-Nanded broad gauge railway line has been acquired and now state government will request the railway ministry to start the tender process. The progress of the land acquisition process was reviewed by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in his war room on Monday. A source in chief minister’s office (CMO) said that if Railways shows promptness, work on the project could start in eight to nine months.
The length of the line is 284km and it needs 722 hectares of land. It will pass through six tehsils and 90 villages in Wardha, Yavatmal, Washim, Hingoli and Nanded districts. It was granted a special project status in July 2016. The main problem with the line so far was land acquisition.
When the line is commissioned it will provide direct connectivity between Nagpur and Marathwada. Today the train journey between Nagpur and Nanded takes over 12 hours and very few travel by train between the two cities.
The source further said that Wadsa-Gadchiroli railway line was also discussed in the meeting. “There are some issues related to land acquisition. The CM issued necessary directives to Gadchiroli district collector,” he added.
According to the official the land acquisition for Ahmednagar-Beed-Parli railway line was complete and construction could begin on it by the year end.
