LEH: At Upshi, 50 km south of Leh, a tiny hillock poses a big challenge to a team of railway survey men. A 16-member squad, comprising experienced railway engineers, geologists, bridge specialists and avalanche experts, tosses various options to negotiate the roadblock —from engineering a deep vertical cut to pushing the track towards the existing motor road. A senior geologist in the team is blunt: there’s no way we can have a tunnel below this heap of withered granite. There’s one more problem, points out another expert. The hillock is too short for a tunnel. So, what’s the way out? After some discord, a consensus is arrived at: let the project consultant RITES, whose survey experts did six recces of the terrain in the past, come up with two alternative solutions and freeze the matter, for good.
If

the Government of India has its way, a railway line up to Leh — a district in Ladakh sandwiched between Pakistan occupied Kashmir in the west and China in the north and east — will be a reality in the next few years. The survey for a 498-km-long strategic railway line from Bilaspur (Himachal Pradesh) to Manali (HP) to Leh ( J&K) began in September last year. The Ministry of Defence has earmarked Rs 158 crore to the Indian Railways for the survey, with Rs 40 crore released in 2016-17.
Depending on the gradients and the alignment, the route length could go up to 650 km, almost the same as the distance by road. But the big picture is this: strategically important Leh — just 250 km from the China border — will finally be connected to Delhi by an all-weather, 1,100-km-long rail route. Though defence requirements are the basic rationale for conceiving a railway line passing through a difficult terrain and high passes — 17,480-ft-high Taglang La is one of the four passes on the way ..
The cost? The survey men are tight-lipped; a tentative cost will be known by the end of next year when the second phase of the three-phase survey is completed. “Don’t be surprised if the project cost is Rs 1 lakh crore,” exclaims one of the survey men, with a disclaimer that he does not have all the requisite statistics — route length, total size of the tunnels and bridges and the like to do a back-of-the-envelope calculation.
Last week ET Magazine joined this team of survey men for a stretch of 70 km from Leh to Lato, both in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir.
Strategic Line
The entire survey is expected to take at least two more years. When it’s time for the government to take a call on its implementation, the recent tensions with China and the eventuality of future skirmishes may well determine whether it’s executed or not.
After all, the Bilaspur-Manali-Leh line will go Last week ET Magazine joined this team of up to 250 km from the India-China border. It will also be the most challenging project the Railways has ever embarked upon since it involves constructions in huge mountains and avalanche-prone sections.
And it’s not the only line that’s planned near this critical India-China boundary. Final location surveys are also being conducted on the eastern front for three other stretches — a 378-km Missamari (Assam)-Tenga (Arunachal Pradesh)-Tawang (Arunachal) track, a 227-km-long track from Pasighat (Arunachal) to Tezu (Arunachal) to Rupai (Assam) and a 249-km route from North Lakhimpur (Assam) to Bame (in Along, Arunachal) to Silapathar (Assam).
This information was in a written reply by MoS for Railways Rajen Gohain to Parliament in November last year. He added that Rs 345 crore was earmarked for surveys for the four lines, with the ministry of defence releasing Rs 87.18 crore for 2016-17.
These blueprints are on the drawing board at a time when China is aggressively pushing its railway network deep into Tibet; the Indian government was jolted in 2006 when the 1,142-km-long Qinghai-Tibet Railway (QTR) became operational, bringing the railway track up to Lhasa, some 1,500 km from India.
The Lhasa-Shigatse railway line was subsequently constructed, and will soon be extended to Dromo near Sikkim and Nyingtri (Nyingchi in Chinese) in north Arunachal Pradesh, the Indian state often claimed by China as its own.
In fact, Dromo is close to Doklam, where India and China have just managed to end a 73-day-long standoff triggered by the intrusion of Chinese soldiers into Bhutanese territory for constructing a road project (Bhutan is a protected state of India).
Despite mounting pressure from China, India did manage to hold its ground till both the countries agreed that its troops would step back by 150 m on each side.
On Thursday, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi at a press conference in Beijing said that while the Doklam standoff with India had “not derailed” ties, they were “damaged and affected” during those 73 days.
While addressing a gathering at a seminar organised by Centre for Land Warfare Studies in New Delhi on Wednesday, the general cited how China “flexes its muscles” to take over “territory in a very gradual manner”.
On the same day, two of India’s former foreign secretaries — Shivshankar Menon and Shyam Saran — had an hour-long conversation at a book launch. Both diplomats spent some quality time to address one question:
Why is China in a tearing hurry to exert its military influence in the region? They suspect it to be the fallout of China’s perception that the US under Donald Trump is on the decline, thereby giving a window of opportunity for China to gain more power.
Clearly, there’s little room for India to slack off and if China is making tracks into Tibet, and towards the border, India too should be getting its act together to create similar infrastructure in the region. It won’t be easy, though.
Toughest Track
Railway officers point out that if the track to Leh gets the green signal, it will be more ambitious and grandiose than the engineering marvel that is the Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla rail link, with 11.2-km-long Pir Panjal railway tunnel.
Only a part of that project is operational now. “The Bilaspur-Leh line will pass through four high passes, the most challenging being Taglang La (17,480 ft). The temperature variation from minus 30 degree Celsius to plus 30 degree Celsius is a big challenge. Then, there are avalanche-prone areas on the way. The proposed line falls in Seismic Zones 4 and 5.
In fact, 11% of our proposed track falls in Zone 5 (the most vulnerable to earthquakes)” says Desh Ratan Gupta, the chief engineer in-charge of construction and survey for Northern Railways. “Also, the sub-zero conditions of this magnitude do not exist in the Udhampur-Baramulla project.”
Sunil Bharadwaj from the Snow and Avalanche Study Establishment (SASE) pinpoints the challenges. “Between Kothi and Sissu (both in Himachal Pradesh), the line will pass through some of the most avalanche-prone pockets.
That 70-km stretch will be a big challenge,” he says. SASE is a laboratory under the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) that forecasts avalanches, apart from undertaking their mitigation measures —both temporary (like artificial triggering) and permanent (like constructing snow galleries).
For New Delhi, junking the Bilaspur-Manali-Leh project because of the rough terrain may not be an option. From 1947, the Railways has been shying away from constructing new hill rail tracks — the toy trains of Darjeeling, Shimla and Ooty were built in the British era.
The only headway made in the recent past has been the construction of rail tracks to connect seven capital cities of the northeastern states (barring Sikkim) and then the Udhampur-Baramulla rail line in Kashmir; both are incomplete.
In Leh, people are not perturbed by the recent military standoff between India and China in Doklam near Sikkim and in Pangong in Ladakh.
Sonam Angchuk, 61, a personal assistant to Shey monastery’s chief monk, is hopeful that the rail line to Ladakh will become a reality. “Can you imagine that a dozen bananas cost Rs 100 in Leh? It’s all because of transportation costs.
Many commodities are bought either from Srinagar or Himachal Pradesh. The rail line will be a game-changer,” he says. Skal Zang Dolma, a former school teacher, spells out the downside.
If the railways come here, prices of goods will come down, but we don’t want Leh to turn into a dirty, low-budget tourist spot,” says Dolma, a resident of Stok, a village where Leh’s royal family resides.

Desh Ratan Gupta, the chief engineer in-charge of construction and survey for Northern Railways, explains why the Bilaspur-Manali-Leh route will by far be more challenging than the Udhampur-Baramulla project in Kashmir, a part of which is operational now. In a chat with ET, Gupta says the project will serve two purposes: one for the defence sector and the other to meet the needs of ordinary citizens. Excerpts:
How challenging is the Bilaspur-Manali-Leh survey that the Indian Railways is undertaking?
The Bilaspur-Manali- Leh route is about 650 km by road. The Manali-Leh

route is closed for almost five months a year, making it difficult for people as well as defence personnel. That’s why the Government of India decided to have rail connectivity up to Leh. For this, the Northern Railways is undertaking the final location survey. It’s a detailed ..
When will you complete the survey? And when will the construction begin?
The survey (which began in September 2016) will take about three years. There will be three phases. We will soon complete Phase I in which we will have a few alternative corridors in various gradients — 1:40, 1:60 and 1:80 (a gradient of 1:40 means that every 40 m, the track will be elevated by 1 m, i.e. for every 1 km, track will be risen by 25 m). The ideal situation is to have sharper gradients, w ..
How challenging is the Bilaspur-Manali-Leh project compared with the Udhampur-Baramulla line?
The Bilaspur-Leh project is the most challenging for the Indian Railways. Between Bilaspur and Leh, there are four Himalayan ranges unlike just one (Pir Panjal) in Udhampur project. The highest point the Udhampur-Baramulla line passes through is only 1,750 m. Here, the line has to pass areas at over 5,300 m. Sub-zero conditions of this magnitude (minus 30 degree Celsius in some a ..
Will this line meet only the requirements of the Ministry of Defence, which is funding the survey cost, and possibly the entire project, too?
Along the route, the defence has many establishments. They will have specific requirements. But it will also serve the people who will get all-weather connectivity. Now, essential commodities are brought by air during winter. With the line in place, prices will come down. It will serve two purposes: strategic as well as the welfare ..
How much will the project cost?
It’s too early to talk about cost. By the end of next year, we will have a tentative idea. The actual cost will be known only after the DPR is ready (by 2019).

Drawing a page from his experience in the Konkan Railways, Metro Man E Sreedharan said he had recommended the formation of a special purpose vehicle to expedite the Katra-Banihal rail corridor, a crucial link to the Kashmir Valley.
However, with the Railway Board summarily dismissing the suggestions, Sreedharan warns yet again that if work goes on at the same pace “it will take another 20 years to complete the project”.
In response to a public interest litigation filed by advocate and politician Prashant Bhushan’s Centre for Public Interest Litigation, the Delhi High Court

had constituted a committee in 2015 with Sreedharan as its head to look into the 111-km rail corridor from Katra to Banihal. The line connecting Katra, a Hindu pilgrimage town near Jammu, with Banihal in the Kashmir Valley, is plagued by inordinate delays and cost overruns since work commenced in 2002 with the Railways having spent Rs 10,000 crore already.
“Work has been going on for 15 years and one difficult stretch on the corridor is yet to be completed. As the head of the High Court ordered committee, “I have suggested that the project be taken away from the Railways and given to a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), which should be formed if the Railways wants the project to be expedited on priority,” Sreedharan said. “A similar arrangement was done for the Konkan Railways. Only if the SPV is formed will the project be completed in the next 8 to 10 years. Otherwise with the present style of working, it will take another 20 years”
Sreedharan, 85, who had spearheaded the challenging Konkan Railways project, delivering 760 km of rail corridors with 59 stations, 92 tunnels and 2328 bridges, added, “We had finished the project in seven years. The Katra section is extremely important and will facilitate transportation of troops and bring down prices of essential commodities. However, Railway Board has turned down my suggestion.”
The Katra-Banihal stretch is considered to be the most difficult engineering challenge in the country. With 27 bridges including the tallest railway bridge in the world and 37 tunnels, one of the longest in Asia, it throws up challenges coupled with a hostile terrain.
While two-thirds of the larger 326-km corridor ranging from Jammu-Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla is ready, only the Katra-Banihal calls for attention. Railway Ministry has formed a special monitoring team to oversee its execution and is targeting for an opening by 2021.

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.
