Lists of Sections to be Commissioned, Total Works in Progress on Eastern Railway below
Eastern Railway (ER) is likely to commission a slew of works over the next few months. These are works related to new line construction, or doubling, tripling and quadrupling projects that have been underway or quite a while.
Most of these projects were part of targets to be achieved in the financial year 2018-19, but have been delayed for one or more of an array of issues.
ER has performed comparatively better than most zonal counterparts on Indian Railways. It managed to achieve 36% of its target for construction of new lines in FY2018-19.
Out of a target of 208 km of doubling/tripling/ quadrupling and 28 km of new line construction, ER was able to commission almost 85 km of line doubling in the previous financial year.
The spillover targets of FY 18-19 have left ER with a total target of 248 km of line commissioning in FY 19-20. This includes new works for the current FY of 96 km and 151 km brought over from FY 18-19.
