Because of this poor rail connectivity, people have/had started travelling by their own means of transport, i.e. cars, jeeps SUVs etc. There are more cars in Patiala than in Chandigarh or Ludhiana as per population ratio. The only hard luck this city has , is that its NOT falling on the mainline route of NDLS-ASR or JAT, but the main line is merely 22 kms from here. FYI : residents of Kurukshetra and Kaithal have been demanding a direct connectivity to Patiala, even a survey was done for the said line in 2009, during Mamta Banerjee's time. But, RB didn't approve of it. Saman residents have also been demanding a link from Patiala-Samana-Jakhal , which is again long pending, and shall open doors of revenue for IR if the new line is laid. But, RB is not giving it a nod despite of the fact they know the potential of it....

The interiors of Punjab and Haryana are not connected or are poorly managed by IR. Punjab and Haryana are known as rice bowls of the country and these belts from Patiala-Samana-Jakhal and Kurkshetra-kaithal -Patiala are main, and are thoroughly been ignored.

CHANDIGARH: Though no new trains have been announced in the Union Railway Budget for any place, including the Punjab-Haryana region, doubling of the 172km Rajpura-Bhatinda line and a new bypass track in Ambala (Mohri-Sambhu) spread over 7km are bound to bring some cheer for commuters. In addition, the budget made provision for manning of 11 unmanned level crossings in the area at a cost of Rs 6.52 crore, said divisional railway manager of Ambala Division, Northern Railway, A K Kathpal.
A running room for drivers and guards will come up in Bathinda with an allocation of Rs 5.46 crore. The doubling of Rajpura-Bathinda line will cost Rs 1,720 crore and the new line will have an allocation of 150 crore.

Three underpasses have also been planned on the Rajpura-Patiala circuit to ease traffic situation. A series of safety improvement tasks will be taken up in the area, including on the Saharanpur-Ludhiana line.
Other major highlight of the budget is the sanctions for safety works resulting in elimination of all unmanned level crossings of the division in one stroke.
Haryana government had recently taken a decision to get rid of unmanned crossings in the state to avoid fatal accidents. As per the newly-formulated Road Safety Policy of Punjab, there are still several unmanned crossings in different areas of the state.

A new train to link Anandpur Sahib with Amritsar would be introduced next month, Anandpur Sahib MP Prem Singh Chandumajra said after a meeting with railway minister Suresh Prabhu.
He said the railway minister had assured him that the new train would be introduced keeping in view the likely arrival of thousands of devotees to Anandpur Sahib to participate in the 350th foundation day celebrations of the town.
He said Prabhu would make the announcement regarding the new train during his visit to Amritsar next month.

said the new train would run via Morinda, adding that its introduction would benefit devotees keen to pay obeisance at Takht Keshgarh Sahib and Akal Takht.
He also raised the demand of providing a new rail link between Anandpur Sahib and Garhshankar for further linking the town with Amritsar. He also demanded the Rahon-Samrala and SAS Nagar-Rajpura rail link from the minister.

पटियाला। रेलवे डिपार्टमेंट राजपुरा-से लहरा मुहब्बत संगरूर तक ट्रेनों की संख्या में बढ़ोतरी के साथ-साथ हाई स्पीड ट्रेन चलाने की स्कीम बना रहा है। इसके लिए रेलवे लाइन का इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन होगा। इतना ही नहीं रेल विकास निगम लिमिटेड (आरवीएनएल) ने रेल रूट का सर्वे भी कर दिया है। सर्वे के अनुसार 151 किलोमीटर रेल लाइन पर 180 करोड़ रुपए खर्च होने का अनुमान है। इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन लाइन शुरू करने के लिए लाइनों की मेंटिनेंस का काम भी महकमे ने शुरू कर दिया है।
इस समय राजपुरा तक ही इलेक्ट्रिक लाइन है। अंबाला में पटियाला-बठिंडा रूट के लिए डीजल इंजन लगाना पड़ता है। इससे ईधन अधिक खर्च होता है और इंजन बदलने में टाइम लगता है। इस रेल रूट पर इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन होने से राजपुरा

से पटियाला होते हुए संगरूर तक ट्रेन बढ़ सकती हैं। साथ ही लंबी दूरी की ट्रेन चल सकती हैं। उधर, अंबाला से लुधियाना वाला रेल रूट इलेक्ट्रिक वाला है। जिसके चलते इस रूट पर ट्रेनों की संख्या ज्यादा है।
राजपुरा से पटियाला तक इलेक्ट्रिक लाइन नहीं है। शायद यही कारण है कि पंजाब में चलने वाली 90 ट्रेनों में से केवल 10 ट्रेनें मालवा रीजन में चलती हैं।
सबसे बड़ा फायदा: अंबाला में नहीं बदलना होगा इंजन : राजपुरा से पटियाला, धूरी बठिंडा तक रेल लाइन का इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन होने से अंबाला में इंजन चेंज नहीं करना होगा। इसके पहले इस रूट से गुजरने वाली ट्रेनों के इंजन अंबाला में चेंज होते थे। इस रूट पर अभी एक ही ट्रेन दादर-अमृतसर है। इसमें दादर से इलेक्ट्रिक इंजन लगकर आता है। अंबाला में इंजन को बदलने में काफी टाइम लगता है। लाइन के इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन से बठिंडा-दिल्ली ट्रेन भी इलेक्ट्रिक इंजन से रन कर सकेगी। लंबी दूरी की ट्रेन शुरू हो सकती हैं।
नई ट्रेन चलाने की होगी मांग : '' राजपुरा से लहरा मुहब्बत संगरूर तक रेल लाइन के इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन का सर्वे हो चुका है। अब नई ट्रेन चलने की संभावनाएं बढ़ गई हैं। अमेरिकी प्रेसीडेंट बराक ओबामा के दौरे के बाद रेलमंत्री से मिलकर इस रूट पर लंबी दूरी की ट्रेनें चलाने की सिफारिश करूंगा।'' -डाॅ.धर्मवीर गांधी, सांसद पटियाला ।
ट्रेनों की स्पीड पर पड़ेगा फर्क : '' जल्दराजपुरा-पटियाला रेल रूट पर इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन होगा। लाइन के इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन का सबसे बड़ा फायदा यह है कि यदि किसी कारण अंबाला-लुधियाना रूट बंद रहता है तो एमरजेंसी में इसे चलाया जा सकता है। ट्रेनों की स्पीड पर भी फर्क पड़ेगा। '' -अजीत सिंह, स्टेशन सुपरिंटेंडेंट
आरवीएनएल ने 151 किमी के रूट का किया सर्वे
सर्वे के मुताबिक इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन पर 180 करोड़ रुपए खर्च होने का अनुमान।

CORE is doing the electrification of Rohtak Bathinda Lehra Mohaabat and RVNL is doing Rajpura-Patiala-Dhuri-Lehra Mohabat. So, in that way, line from Rajpura to Bathinda shall be put on electric traction.
