the Rajpura-Bathinda railway track was being carried out at the Bathinda railway junction. It is expected to be completed by January end, he said.
In the first phase, the work of double laining of the 172-km Rajpura-Bathinda rail track is also near completion.
In another development, the speed of the trains will be increased from 130 km/hr to 160 km/hr. The rail lines on the route are being strengthened as per the new requirement and specifications.
Both these projects will prove to be a boost for the Railways in the Malwa region. A large number of important cities and industrial towns, including Patiala and Bathinda, fertilizer and thermal power plants, food grain loading points, educational hubs and military cantonments are located in the section.

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.
