The much-awaited Rs 199 crore project to construct double track railway lines between Chandigarh and Ambala is expected to be completed in the next six months. The project that was started by the railway division in 2001 is expected to facilitate the faster movement of trains. The construction of the 22 kilometers double line between Ambala-Dappar stations has been completed by the Ambala division and the track would become operational on October 5.
“Keeping in view the rising number of passengers and the need for fast trains, double tracks for three tier traffic between Ambala-Dappar stations will become functional on October 5 and rail track from Ambala to Chandigarh is expected to be completed by the end of April,” Ambala divisional railway

manager (DRM) Dinesh Kumar said.
Kumar said only one-way traffic is allowed in single rail tracks and trains have to move slower which consumes a lot of time.
“With the development of double lines, the movement of trains will become faster and save up to 20 to 30 minutes. Two trains can simultaneously reach Chandigarh while fast moving trains like Shatabdi Express can also be ply on the track,” the DRM added.
Officials said after the completion of the project frequency of train service would be increased between Chandigarh and Delhi, with a view to provide comfortable journey as trains would arrive and leave the stations at the correct time on connecting tracks. However in the current scenario trains usually get late due to single traffic line.
The DRM said speed trials at railway lines from Ambala to Ludhiana and Ludhiana to Bathinda are also in progress and the speed would be increased from 110 km/hour to 130 km/hour in coming months.

The double-laning of Dappar-Chandigarh railway track is expected to be completed by end of next year, said S K Agarwal, additional general manager, Northern Railways, here on Wednesday.
The work has been pending for a long time. In January 2013, when the then Union Minister for Railways Pawan Kumar Bansal had said the particular railway line would be made a double track by December 2013, Rs 199 crore was sanctioned. However, the work did not take off.
Once the double track is complete, the frequency of trains between Chandigarh and New Delhi can

be increased and travel time will also be significantly reduced.
The facelift of Chandigarh railway station towards ‘world-class’ status will at least take another two years. The station was one of the five chosen from across the country for improving facilities to meet international standards.
“The project will face a minimum of two years’ delay as the Public-Private Partnership mode has been facing major hurdles. A Special Purpose Vehicle is yet to be assigned which will be responsible for development of stations across the country. Hence, the process is taking time,” the AGM said.
Last month, UT Administration, in accordance with the railways and the ministry, had approved a concept plan for the “redevelopment” of 500 acres of railway land. As per the plan, the railway station was to be self-financed project for the commercial development which will house hotels, malls and commercial establishments. Indian Railway Station Development Corporation Limited (IRSDC), in consultation with a German consultant, prepared the concept plan for its redevelopment.
The plan has been prepared on the pattern of an international airport. For instance, there will be a bank, a food court, cloak rooms and a VIP waiting lounge. Sources said emphasis would be laid on providing all facilities to passengers at the station.

He cited ‘economic slowdown’ as a main factor.
