Gunji Londa Section is now doubled after CRS Inspection
Gunji Londa Section, Belagavi: Belagavi is set to witness a major development in its rail infrastructure as the much-awaited Londa-Belagavi-Ghataprabha double track is all set to be dedicated to the nation. The double track is a crucial link between Pune and Bengaluru and is expected to provide a significant boost to the transportation infrastructure of the region.
The completion of the Gunji Londa Section’s Commissioner of Rail Safety (CRS) ahead of the Prime Minister’s visit to Belagavi on 27.02.2023, is a major milestone in the project. The CRS speed trial was completed by Shri AK Rai, Commissioner of Rail Safety, Southern Circle Bengaluru. This indicates that the project has passed all the necessary safety tests and is now ready for commercial operations.
The Londa-Belagavi-Ghataprabha double track is a significant infrastructure project that involves the doubling of the railway line from Londa to Ghataprabha. This is a part of the Pune-Bengaluru Mainline, and the doubling of the railway line will facilitate faster and smoother movement of trains between the two cities.
One of the main hurdles in this project was the old British-era railway overbridge near Londa Junction on Gunji Londa Section. The bridge was dismantled, and a new bow girder bridge was placed over it to ensure the safety and smooth functioning of the railway line. The contractors and railway officials worked day and night to complete this section’s doubling on priority well before the deadline. As a result, many trains had to be canceled, diverted, and regulated in the section to ensure that the work could be completed without any hassles.
The completion of the double track is expected to provide a significant boost to the transportation infrastructure of the region. With the faster and smoother movement of trains, the journey time between Pune and Bengaluru is expected to reduce significantly. This is expected to benefit not only the passengers but also the businesses in the region, as it will make the transportation of goods faster and more efficient.
The electrification works of the section are also on a war footing and are expected to be completed within the next month (March-April). Once the electrification works are completed, the entire section will be fully functional and will provide a much-needed boost to the transportation infrastructure of the region.
And Belagavi News can confirm that within 12 Days, An Electric Locomotive Trial can occur from Gunji to Belagavi. Marking the 1st Energised E-loco entry at Belagavi (One E-loco WAP-4 arrived Last year in Belagavi but was piggybacked and was dead/powered off).
The Londa-Belagavi-Ghataprabha double track is not just a railway infrastructure project; it is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the contractors, railway officials, and workers who worked tirelessly to complete this project on time. The completion of this project is a significant achievement and a moment of pride for everyone associated with it.
The project is expected to provide a significant boost to the local economy, as it will facilitate faster and more efficient transportation of goods and people. It is also expected to provide a significant impetus to the tourism industry in the region, as tourists can now travel between Pune and Bengaluru in a shorter time.
