SR: Fresh Timelines for New Line, Doubling, GC Originally Targetted for 2018-19

Lists of Sections to be Commissioned on Southern Railway below

Southern Railway (SR) is likely to commission a slew of works in the second half of Financial Year 2020. These are works related to new line construction, gauge conversion and doubling projects that have been underway for some time now.

These projects were part of targets to be achieved in the financial year 2018-19 but weren’t completed in time for the deadline. They have thus been carried over to the current year.

SR has been a relatively good performer in the execution of pending works when compared to zones like Central Railway and Eastern Railway. The Chennai based zone managed to commission 115.4 km of line – 43% of its total target of 268.27 km of New Line, Doubling and Gauge Conversion.

The spillover target of 152 km has been added to this year’s target of 108 km of Gauge Conversion and Doubling, taking the total to be commissioned in FY 2019-20 to 261 km.
