Railway and other Senior Railway officials were also present in the function.
Speaking on the occasion the Hon'ble MR said that the coming of the Railway in the valley has eased the transportation needs of the people. Short distance travellers will benefit from creation of the new halt stations, further demands of the travellers will be certainly looked into.
The new halt stations between Baramula-Quazigund stations are: Sangdan (Quazigund-Sadura), Monghall (Sadura-Anantnag), Ratnipora (Awantipura-Kakapora), Nadigam and Razwan stations (Budgam-Mazhom). These halts are constructed at an estimated cost of Rs.11.01 crore and would cater to the transportation needs of residents living in these areas.
The all-weather special DEMU trains in the Kashmir valley has become a veritable life-line to the residents providing mobility with convenience. On an average 25,000 passengers travel each day in these DEMUs with a corresponding tickets earnings accounting Rs. 3.5 lakh per day.
Background information of Railway Services in Jammu & Kashmir:
With a view to provide an alternative and a reliable mass transportation system to Jammu & Kashmir, Govt. of India planned a 326 km (later extended to cover 345 km) long Railway Line joining the Kashmir Valley with the Indian Railways network. The Jammu-Udhampur-Katra-Quazigund-Baramulla rail line, a project of great importance for the local populace and the country as a whole, has been declared as “National Project”. This project is, perhaps, the most difficult new railway line project undertaken on Indian subcontinent. The terrain passes through the Himalayas, which are young fold mountains full of geographical surprises, high tectonic activity and extremely cold weather conditions.
The completion of Jammu-Udhampur railway link in 2005 spelled the dawn of new era in rail connectivity. The rail line in the Kashmir Valley was constructed in a phased manner with the Railway steadily commissioning rail sections between Anantnag-Mazahom in October 2008, the Mazahom-Baramulla section in February 2009 and the rest 18 km long section between Quazigund-Anantnag in October 2009 thus completing the 119 kilometre Qazigund-Baramulla railway line of the Kashmir Valley. The Railway since then is working steadily to complete the remaining of the 345 km long railway line. The Udhampur-Katra 25 km section was commissioned in July 2014 and the Katra-Banihal 111Km work is in progress (Target: March 2021).
This portion being constructed by Northern Railway, KRCL and IRCON will have 97.34 Km of Tunnels, 27 Major & 10 Minor Bridges and 203 Km of Access road. 45% of the work is complete with an expenditure of 9419 Crore. The USBRL Project is a culmination of a large number of Tunnels and Bridges, one of the most important and challenging being across the deep gorge of Chenab River near Salal Hydro Power Dam. This necessitated the construction of a long span bridge in the Seismeic Zone V. The total Length of the ‘Chenab Bridge’ is 1315 m having a design speed of 100 km and can withstand wind velocity upto 266 Kmph having a life span of 120 years. The Bridge is made up of steel arches and is aesthetically designed using local expertise and construction material. The height of the bridge is 359 m which is about 35 m taller than Eiffel Tower in Paris. When complete this will be the highest railway bridge in the world.
As part of the project to knit the zone of Jammu with the Kashmir valley which is separated through the majestic Pir Panjal mountain range, Indian Railway had earlier constructed the 11.21 Km long ‘Tunnel T-80’. This is the longest transportation tunnel in Asia. The existing stations that lie in the Banihal-Baramula section include Banihal, Shahabad Halt, Qazigund, Sadura, Anantnag, Bijbehara, Panjgam, Awantipora, Kakapora, Pampore, Srinagar, Budgam, Mazhom, Pattan, Hamre, Sopore and Baramulla. 15 pairs of DEMU services ply on the rail section providing all-weather connectivity in this region. Additional DEMUs were introduced in July 2015 and later Fast DEMUs for convenience of office-goers and students were put into service in May 2016 between Banihal-Baramula and Baramula-Budgam. Vadi Ki Sair-a Children Special train was introduced between Banihal to Baramulla from 26.11.2016 (under IRCTC Initiative), which now runs on every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month.

संजय सिंह, नई दिल्ली। भारतीय रेल केवल पटरियां ही नहीं बिछाती, सड़कों का निर्माण भी करती है। इसका प्रमाण जम्मू-कश्मीर में बन रही जम्मू-श्रीनगर-बारामूला प्रोजेक्ट में बखूबी देखा जा सकता है जहां दुर्गम परियोजना स्थलों तक पहुंचने के लिए रेलवे ने पहाड़ों का सीना चीर कर दो सौ किलोमीटर लंबी सड़कों का भी निर्माण किया है।
जी हां, जम्मू-कश्मीर के लोगों के लिए रेलवे विकास का अप्रतिम प्रतिमान बन कर उभरी है। राज्य के जिन लोगों ने कभी ट्रेन नहीं देखी थी, उन्हें रेलवे ने न केवल इसके दर्शन कराए हैं, बल्कि सड़कें और संपर्क मार्ग बनाकर गरीब ग्रामीण के लिए सुनहरे भविष्य के द्वार खोल दिए हैं। जम्मू से कटरा, बनिहाल, श्रीनगर होते हुए बारामूला को जोड़ने वाली लगभग सवा तीन

सौ किलोमीटर लंबे रेल लिंक का तकरीबन दो तिहाई हिस्सा पहले ही चालू हो चुका है। और अब केवल एक तिहाई हिस्से का काम शेष है। जिसे मार्च, 2021 तक पूरा करने के लिए रेलवे के इंजीनियर रात-दिन लगे हुए हैं। यदि वे कामयाब हुए तो यह उनके ही नहीं राज्य तथा देश के लोगों के लिए भी गौरवशाली क्षण होगा।
जम्मू-कश्मीर जैसे दुर्गम पर्वतीय क्षेत्र में रेल प्रोजेक्ट लगाने का मतलब मैदानी इलाकों के मुकाबले चौगुना काम करना होता है। लिहाजा परियोजना में जितनी लंबी रेल लाइनें बिछाई जा रही हैं, लगभग उतनी ही लंबाई की सड़कों, सुरंगों और पुलों का निर्माण भी हो रहा है। इनमें चिनाब पर बन रहा विश्र्व का सबसे ऊंचा पुल तथा टी-5 नाम से बन रही देश की सबसे लंबी सुरंग शामिल हैं।
उत्तर रेलवे के चीफ इंजीनियर बीबीएस तोमर के अनुसार 'ऊधमपुर से बारामूला तक परियोजना के 272 किलोमीटर लंबे हिस्से पर कुल मिलाकर 927 पुल तथा 38 सुरंगों का निर्माण हो रहा है। इनमें पुलों की कुल लंबाई 13 किलोमीटर तथा सुरंगों की 119 किलोमीटर होगी। जम्मू-ऊधमपुर हिस्से का 20 फीसद, जबकि ऊधमपुर- कटरा हिस्से का 44 फीसद हिस्सा सुरंगों के रूप में है। इनमें कटरा-बनिहाल के बीच बन रही 12.75 किलोमीटर लंबाई वाली टी-5 सुरंग देश की सबसे लंबी सुरंग होगी। इससे पहले बनिहाल-काजीगुंड सेक्शन पर बनी 11.21 किलोमीटर लंबी सुरंग को सबसे लंबी माना गया था।'
यह परियोजना राज्य के लोगों की तकदीर बदलने का माद्दा रखती है। इसका अंदाजा इसी बात से लगाया जा सकता है कि अब तक 3710 स्थानीय युवाओं को इसमें स्थायी रोजगार प्रदान किया जा चुका है। इनमें 768 ऐसे लोग शामिल हैं जिनकी जमीन अधिग्रहीत की गई है। हालांकि देर-सबेर परियोजना का लाभ राज्य के हर एक व्यक्ति को किसी न किसी रूप में मिलेगा। इसके पूरा होने पर न केवल जम्मू-कश्मीर देश की मुख्यधारा से जुड़ जाएगा। बल्कि पर्यटक एवं औद्योगिक गतिविधियों में भी इजाफा होगा। यह अलग बात है कि अलगाववादियों और आतंकवादियों के लिए यह परियोजना ताबूत की आखिरी कील साबित हो सकती है।

In around two years from now, the Chenab river in Jammu and Kashmir will be spanned by the world's highest railway bridge that is expected to be 35 metres taller than the Eiffel Tower.
The massive arch-shaped structure, being constructed at a cost of around Rs 1,100 crore in hostile terrain, will use over 24,000 tonnes of steel and will rise 359 m above the river bed.
Designed to withstand wind speeds of upto 260 km per hour, the 1.315 km long "engineering marvel" will connect Bakkal (Katra) and Kauri (Srinagar).
The
...

bridge forms a crucial link in the 111-km stretch between Katra and Banihal, which is part of the Udhampur- Srinagar-Baramulla rail link project.
"The construction of the bridge is the most challenging part of the Kashmir rail link project and once completed, it will be an engineering marvel," said a senior Railway Ministry official involved with the project.
Slated to be completed by 2019, it is expected to become a tourist attraction in the region. There will also be a ropeway in the bridge for inspection purposes.
Once completed, it will surpass the record of the Beipan river Shuibai railway bridge (275 m) in China.
Steel was the material of choice to construct the humongous structure as it is more economical and able to resist temperatures of -20 degrees Celsius and wind speeds of above 250 kmph.
The Railways will also install sensors on the bridge to check the wind velocity: as soon as the wind speed exceeds 90 kmph, the signal on the track will turn red, preventing train movement.
In order to enhance safety and security, the bridge will be made of 63mm thick special blast-proof steel as the Jammu and Kashmir region is prone to frequent terror attacks.
The concrete pillars of the bridge will be designed to withstand explosions and painted with a special corrosion- resistant paint, which lasts for 15 years.
According to the plan, a ring of aerial security will be provided to safeguard the bridge. An online monitoring and warning system will be installed on the bridge to protect the passengers and train in critical conditions. Footpaths and cycle trails will be built adjacent to it.
It is expected to contribute to the economic development of the state and help in improving accessibility.

बाद 135 दिनों तक रेल सेवा पूरी तरह से बंद रही। नवंबर में रेल सेवा को शुरू किया गया, लेकिन रेलवे सभी ट्रेनों को नहीं चला पाया। वहीं उपद्रवियों ने दिसंबर के आरंभ में फिर रेल सेवा को निशाना बनाने का प्रयास किया। चलती ट्रेनों पर पथराव किया गया। इसके साथ ही ट्रैक को भी उखाड़ने का प्रयास हुआ, लेकिन सुरक्षा बलों ने उपद्रवियों के मंसूबों में कामयाब नहीं होने दिया।
