Further, the Hon’ble Prime Minister informed that under the PM Gati Shakti National plan Rail, Road, Air, Water and Internet connectivity is being enhanced across India. Towards this initiative, the Hon’ble Prime Minister informed that particular focus was given to the Bhadrachalam Road – Sattupalli New Railway Line project by including it in the list of fourteen significant coal evacuating projects in the Country. The efforts have enabled the commissioning the new railway line project and electrification in less than four years. In tune with our government’s priority to ensure the socio-economic development of backward and tribal regions, this new railway line is bound to herald significant progress and prosperity in the region through which it is passing, he added.

Shri Narendra Modi informed that the New Railway line project would aid in developing Bhadradri Kothagudem and Khammam districts in Telangana state. The Railway line will provide a safe, fast and economical mode of transportation for the people and industry and will also create new job opportunities for the youth, he added.

Speaking o­n the occasion, Shri G. Kishan Reddy, Hon’ble Minister, stated that the Central Government is committed to developing Telangana State and is taking several initiatives in this regard. He informed that the Government had undertaken to widen 3 National Highways in Telangana State with an estimated cost of Rs 2,268 crore between Medak – Siddipet – Elkathurthy, Bodhan – Basar – Bhainsa, and Sironcha – Mahadevpur sections. Further, the Hon’ble Minister informed that ESI Hospital is sanctioned for Ramagundam.

Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager, SCR, gave a brief presentation to the Hon’ble Prime Minister explaining the salient features of the Bhadrachalam Road – Sattupalli New Railway line project.

The Bhadrachalam Road – Sattupalli Railway line will also help eliminate road transport from the mines to the rail loading terminal, mitigating the problem associated with the transportation of coal by roadways. Coal can now be directly transported from the railway terminal at the open-cast mine through coal received from the conveyors. With coal reserves of more than 200 MTs, the project is likely to help transport coal by railway over the next 30 years. The new line consists of 10 Major Bridges, 37 Minor Bridges, 40 Road Under Bridges and 07 Road Over Bridges.
