KARIMNAGAR/SECUNDERABAD: The long cherished dream of the people of erstwhile Nizambad and Karimnagar districts became a reality on Saturday, when a train was flagged off by railway minister Suresh Prabhu from Secunderabad station. The railway line has been laid from Nizamabad to Pedapalli.
BJP national general secretary P Muralidhar Rao welcomed the train at Karimnagar railway station. It may be recalled that in 1993, the then Prime Minister PV Narsimha Rao laid a foundation stone for Peddapalli-Nizamabad railway line. But the works got delayed due to lack of funds.
Prabhu, along with Nizamabad
Congrats to RM and local MP.
This projects are delayed in the congress government from 1993 to 2014 21 years.
Nizamabad: The Nizamabad railway station will get junction status shortly, as soon as the new 178-km broad gauge railway line from Peddapally to Karimnagar and Nizamabad is complete, by November 2016. The new line will reduce the distance of around 175 km to New Delhi from Nizamabad. Rail connectivity to Mumbai from Karimnagar will also be established. It would boost the economy of north Telangana districts and realise the eight-decade-long dream of people from both districts.
The existing railway line on the Secunderabad-Nizamabad-Manmad section was laid during the Nizam’s rule in early 1920s. In the princely state of Hyderabad the district had junction only at Jankampet, which connects Bodhan 28 km away.

If all goes well, the Nizamabad railway station will become a junction connecting northern, southern and western India lines by March 2015. However, fund is the main criterion and at least Rs.150 crore needs to be earmarked in the Railway budget 2014-15 for the completion of the remaining 28-kilometre line between Kota Armoor and Nizamabad.
Of the 178-kilometre line between Peddapally and Nizamabad, track was laid up to Kammarpally mandal headquarters in the district and trial runs were done. The line-laying work is being carried out till Morthad and by next March, it would be over till Kota Armoor. Land acquisition for main line laying has been completed, but an additional 20 acres should be acquired for changes in design.
From March 2015 on-wards Nizamabad Junction partly relieved Nagpur Junction over congested Traffic of North-South and East-West corridors .Also partly relieved Warangal Junction North -South Traffic.
