WR: Target of 559 km New Line, GC & Doubling in FY19-20, Includes 291 km from 18-19

WR has been set a target of 559 km of commissioning of New Line, Doubling and Gauge Conversion work in the financial year 2019-20, according to sources.

The Mumbai based zone was only able to achieve 45% of its annual target for the year 18-19. Despite the low actual figures, WR ranks among the best when compared to other zones such as CR with a mere 15% of the target achieved, and WCR with an even lower tally of 10%.

Below is the list of works that were not completed in the previous financial year, and are now part of spillover targets to be executed in 2019-20. Timelines for completion, as currently planned, are also provided.
