Gujarat in railway budget: Survey for 8 important new lines proposed


Ahmedabad, 14 March, 2012

Union railway minister Shri Dinesh Trivedi today announced a list of 111 new line surveys that are to be taken up during the fiscal year 2012-13.

The minister has included some important routes of Gujarat in this list.

-Bhiladi – Patan.
-Godhra-Dahod-Indore-Devas.
-Provision of Broad gauge linkages to minor ports of Gujarat viz. Hazira, Dahej, Bedi and Porbandar
-Arnej-Tarapur
-Nasik-Surat
-High Speed Rail Corridor (HSRC) between Pune-Mumbai-Ahmedabad.
-Piplod-Deogarh Bara-Chhota Udepur-Rajpipla.
-By-pass line at Luni Jn, Samdari, Bhildi Junction, Palanpur, Marwar and Pokaran Junction Stations

It is very interesting and important that the routes like Nashik-Surat and Dahod-Indore are part of this list. Also important is inclusion of broad gauge connectivity to ports like Hazira, Dahej and Porbandar. Bhiladi-Patan route is an alternate route to Delhi via Rajasthan, and therefore it is an important one.

The minister also announced a list of 84 new line projects that are sent to Planning Commission for appraisal. Gujarat’s one project: Bhavnagar-Tarapur finds place in this list.

    Work on Bhiladi-Patan new line is going on since many years. Western railway has also floated tenders and much of the work for new line is already complete. So a survey for this line does not make sense. May be some errors in preparation of budget speech

    • Rajendra Joshi says:

      One news item that additional line of 75 kms between Pavel-Roha is getting completed by 2013 end in 4 years time with Rs.403 crores. Now You compare with Patan-Bhildi (already British Raj established 19th Century line with proven commercial viability) which was uprooted and now for
      just 22 kms line more than rupees in crores in three digits have been spent.
      With HQ in Mumbai, just recent one more IT raid on DRM, Ahmedabad you should note that what is happening! Why repeated surveys ?

      Please give your mail so that i can send you details on NG Rail Issues for You to take it ahead.

    Broadgage railway line to Hazira port and Dahej is badly needed for international containerised cargo movement.
    Rail Vikas Nigam should speed up the work on port connectivity.

  3. Gujarati says:

    It will take 10 more years before any of these announcements materialize.

    Can Dhanera -Barmer-Jaisalmer survey proposed ever. Why this line has not been taken up?

    Jaisalmer- Bhilai railway distance can be reduced by 181km (One sided).
    Also distance with other steel plants Durg, Raipur will also be reduced by 181 km.

    Going through the following calculations-

    Distance calculation:
    Jaisalmer- Barmer- Dhanera (159+177=336km)——>(550km)Ahmedabad—–> Surat—-> Nagpur—->(1771km) Durg—->(1780)Bhilai. (Total= 1780km)

    here is comparison with below mentioned route-
    Other route (Via JDR):
    Jaisalmer- (301km)Jodhpur—-> (1156km)Bina——>(1683km)Nagpur—->(1961km)Bhilai (Total= 1961km)

    Other route (Via BKN)
    Jaisalmer—->(319km)Bikaner—–>(699km)Rewari—>(782 km) Delhi—>(1865km)Nagpur—>(2129 km)Durg—->(2138 km) Bhilai

    There will also be reduction in the distance of other steel plant industries situated at Raipur, Bilaspur, Rourkela as well.

    Other Importance of proposed Jaisalmer- Barmer- Dhanera railway line-

    1. The very important defense path line will be developed for entire indo pak border line (Kandla- Bhuj- Barmer-Jaisalmer- Bikaner- Suratgarh–Bhatinda–Baramula)

    2. Jaisalmer’s lime stone & minerals, Barmer’s lignite and petroleum products transportation will be enabled towards Gujrat and rest of the southern, eastern part of the India.

    3. This railway line will stimulate the development of the steel industry, cement industry, steel industry & petroleum industry in this area.

    4. The tourists from Gujarat/Mumbai/western/eastern & southern India will approach easily hence boost the tourism industry to Jaisalmer.

    5. The Wind energy and solar energy plants being proposed for the Jaisalmer-Barmer-Phalodi region will get benefit of this route due to time saving, distance reduction for the transportation. (Most of the wind mills parts are carried from Daman)

    6. The sociological important railway connectivity needed to this area because of major workers from these area are engaged with the job at Gujrat, Maharashtra & other southern part of India.

    7. Even after independence no new railway connectivity was made to this area (Jaisalmer-Barmer). The survey has been made 4-5 times for the Jaisalmer-Barmer, Jaisalmer-Kandla, Barmer-Palanpur, although it remained unfruitful every time.

    Concluded from the above calculations a vast campaign is required for this (Jaisalmer-Barmer-Dhanera) railway line so that RSMM, Defence, Tourism industry-Jaisalmer, Wind/Solar Industry, Petroleum products based industry get benefit & flourish.

    B-2: If Anupgarh-Khajuwala- Ramgarh-Sanu railway link established-

    The survey of this line up to Jaisalmer has been already taken up in the Railway Budget 2005-06 on 26th February 2005. Rail line up to Sanu has been already proposed in railway budget 2013-14. If Anupgarh- Khajuwala- Ramgarh- Sanu (85+311+20=416 Km) railway link established there will be following benefit:

    1. An important defence line will be developed: A parallel line to Suratgarh-Lalgarh-Kolayat-Phalodi-Jaisalmer line will be developed and support in case any defense or war emergency no dependency over this single line.

    2. A socio economic growth inducing line to this poor developed area.

    3. Very important transportation facility for the Indira Gandhi Canal dependent area of Gangangar, Bikaner and Jaisalmer districts will be developed.

    4. This belt is under the petroleum/oil/gas investigation hence by railway development to this area may boost the excavation/invention of hydrocarbon

    5. People of this area are working in different part of the country will get facility to reach home via direct trains.
