Social Resettlement & Rehabilitation Plan of Raichur-Guntakal doubling 81 km Karnataka

Since line is already doubled between Nancherla and Guntakal, no portion of the proposed doubling falls in Anantapur district. South Central Railway (SCR) has proposed the doubling of an important section between Raichur and Guntakal with an objective to augment the coal carrying capacity to Raichur Thermal Power Plant and to increase the line capacity for passenger traffic on “Golden Quadrilateral Route.” Wadi-Raichur-Guntakal is an important route because it connects metropolitan cities - Mumbai and Chennai. This section also connects Hyderabad and Mumbai with Tirupati (a famous place of pilgrimage) and Bangalore and also with Hospet-Bellary ore sector. Wadi-Raichur sub-sector is almost doubled except for a small section of 16.24 KM between Krishna and Yermaras, which is near completion. Therefore, with proposed Raichur-Guntakal doubling the complete section will be double gauge and can cater to increasing demand of passenger and goods traffic. Detentions to the goods train are observed at Guntakal, Adoni and Raichur due to non-availability of path and passage. Therefore, in order to increase the turn round of the wagons and engine utilization, doubling of the patches is essential from operational point of view. The average detention will come down considerably after doubling. It was assessed that there will be a saving of detention to freight trains to the tune of at least two hours per train at both Raichur and Guntakal due to doubling. It is proposed to double the Raichur - Guntakal section of 120.84 Km. Out of total length of 120.84 Km, 39.74 Km has already been doubled during 1990-92.
