Mumbai: The Konkan Railway on Sunday signed an MoU with Shapoorji Pallonji & Co (SPCPL) for construction of a 103 km-long railway line between Chiplun and Karad. Expected to be completed in five years, the project will boost industries in the hinterland of Maharashtra by providing them connectivity to port.
"The state government has also initiated development of sea ports along the Konkan coast such as those at Rewas, Dighi, Jaigarh, Angre, Vijaydurg, Redi and the new railway line will facilitate speedy transportation of the export/import cargo to and from these ports," a senior railway official said.

said the new railway line is expected to generate direct 5,000 jobs per year during its construction and several more indirect jobs.
The MoU was signed in the presence of chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and railway minister Suresh Prabhu. The Konkan Railway (Indian Railway) will have 26% equity in the proposed SPV for the public-private partnership (PPP) project.
A KR official said: "The railway line, which will be constructed at a cost of around Rs 3195.60 crore, will facilitate overall development of Western Maharashtra and the Konkan region through easy and economical movement of raw material and finished products besides providing convenient transport system to the people of these two regions. Moreover, the traffic through the port and the connected railway line will facilitate rapid growth of these regions."

मुंबई. राज्य में 8 बड़ी रेल परियोजनाएं वर्षों से अधूरी पड़ी हुई हैं। इनमें नागपुर-नागभीड़ व वर्धा-यवतमाल-नांदेड़ रेल लाइन भी शामिल हैं। विधानमंडल की लोकलेखा समिति की रिपोर्ट में यह बात सामने आई है। समिति के अध्यक्ष कांग्रेस विधायक गोपालदास अग्रवाल ने शुक्रवार को विधानमंडल के दोनों सदनों में यह रिपोर्ट पेश की। समिति ने यह भी कहा है कि इस संबंध में तीन महीने के भीतर क्या कदम उठाए गए, इसकी जानकारी समिति को दी जाए।
- समिति ने अपनी रिपोर्ट में बताया है कि इन रेल परियोजनाओं के लिए राज्य सरकार की हिस्सेदारी के तहत दी जाने वाली अधिकांश रकम दे दी गई है।

एेसे में इन्हें जल्द से जल्द पूरा करने के लिए केंद्र व राज्य सरकार को मिल कर प्रयास करने की जरूरत है।
- समिति की सिफारिश में कहा गया है कि इन अधूरी परियोजनाओं को पूरा करते वक्त प्रादेशिक संतुलन का ध्यान रखा जाए।
गौरतलब है कि नागपुर-नागभीड़ गेज चौहरीकरण परियोजना को वर्ष 2012-13 में मंजूरी मिली थी। इसकी मूल लागत 376.21 करोड़ थी।
- इसके लिए राज्य सरकार को 50 फीसदी रकम यानी 188.11 करोड़ रुपए देना है।
- समिति को पता चला कि इन परियोजनाओं के लिए 70 फीसदी भूमि अधिग्रहण का कार्य पूरा होने के बाद ही निर्माण कार्य शुरू हो सकता है और जबतक निर्माण कार्य शुरू नहीं होता, तब तक परियोजना के पूरा होने के लिए समय सीमा तय नहीं की जा सकती।
- भूमि अधिग्रहण के बगैर ठेकेदारों को ठेके भी नहीं दिए जा सकते। समिति ने इस संबंध तीन माह के भीतर उठाए गए कदमों की जानकारी मांगी है।
ये हैं लंबित रेल परियोजनाएं
नागपुर-नागभीड़ 106.15 किमी
मनमाड-धुले-इंदौर 350 किमी
पुणे-नाशिक 255 किमी
वर्धा-यवतमाल-नांदेड़ 284 किमी

गेल्या अनेक वर्षांपासून सर्वेक्षणात अडकलेल्या या प्रकल्पाला दीड वर्षापूर्वीच तत्कालीन मुख्यमंत्री पृथ्वीराज चव्हाण यांनी पुढाकार घेऊन खर्चाच्या ५० टक्के निधी उचलण्याचा निर्णय घेत अर्थसंकल्पात तरतुदही केली. त्यानंतर केंद्रीय रेल्वेमंत्री सुरेश प्रभू यांनीही या मार्गाचे महत्व ओळखून त्यादृष्टीने वेगाने पावली टाकली. या मार्गासाठी संयुक्त विशेष कंपनी स्थापन केल्यानंतर गेल्या २७ नोव्हेंबर रोजी या प्रकल्पाचे भूमिपुजन करण्याचे निश्‍चित झाले होते. मात्र मुख्यमंत्री फडणवीस यांची वेळ मिळू शकली नव्हती.

thank you for SWR for changing of time table now speed of train is good with comparision of old time one suggesation from my side please make the time of train delay for 1 hr or if possible then 2 hr for departure from hubli as well as from LTT.
it is better to hubli and belgaum passingers to go pune , lonavala and LTT . Try to make another new halt for kalyan there is too much rush at morning to go LTT so that train can help them to avoid some rush.

MUMBAI: In a fillip to important rail projects in the state, the Maharashtra government last week conveyed to Central Railway that it would contribute 50 per cent of the cost for the Rs 1,900 crore Pune-Nashik and Karad-Chiplun rail lines.
The state government has been asking the railway ministry to expedite the project as it will provide direct rail link connectivity between these important centre of growth in Maharashtra.

capital of the states, besides an education centre of repute.
On the other hand, Nashik too has robust industrial presence, both, from the public and private sector. It also is a major agricultural centre because it records huge production of varied vegetables, onions, sugarcane etc. Vineyards are also there is large number due to production of large quantity of grapes.
A CR official confirmed, "We have received an official communication from the state government about their decision to share 50 per cent cost for both these projects."
The state government's keen interest and it's willingness to share the 50 per cent cost will lead to faster execution of the project. The official explained, "Most rail projects remain on paper because railways lacks funds to execute them However, the railway board will now have to expedite the clearance for these project as the cost is not a factor for execution of these two corridors."
As of now, only one train -Pune-Manmad Express- runs between these two cities via Kalyan and Panvel, taking a travel time of 7 hours. The official said, "The proposed Pune-Nashik corridor will cut across the Deccan Plateau and involve a lot gradients and curvature, making the project costly. The 265 km long corridor will reduce the travel time to 5 hours. It will also open up options to run more services between these two cities."
The Karad-Chiplun line will connect Western Maharashtra to Konkan through 11.50 km railway line. The total cost of the project is estimated to be Rs 928 crore, of which the state government will shell out Rs 464.05 crore.
