    The South Central Railway (SCR) has taken a significant step towards completing its Mission Electrification by electrifying important stretches in Northern Telangana. The Nizamabad-Kamareddy section, which spans 50km, and the Jankampet-Basar section, which spans 23km, have been electrified as part of this project. This electrification will provide a continuous electrified rail-line facility for a distance of 210km from Secunderabad to Basar, including the branch line between Jankampet to Bodhan.

    The SCR officials have stated that this project was sanctioned in 2015-16 for a distance of 783km at an estimated cost of Rs 865 crore. The length of the project in Telangana is approximately 300km between Dharmabad-Kurnool (excluding Manoharabad – Mahabubnagar). With the electrification of these two new sections, the stretches from Secunderabad to Basar and Gadwal now stand electrified. Works are also nearing completion in the remaining sections of this project.

    The electrification of these rail lines provides seamless movement of trains by avoiding changes in traction power. It also reduces enroute detention of both coaching and freight trains, leading to an improvement in the average speed of trains. It has the potential to introduce more trains in these sections due to the enhancement of sectional capacity. Additionally, it is an environment-friendly means of powering the trains while saving fuel costs simultaneously.

    Arun Kumar Jain, SCR General Manager, stated that the Manmad-Mudkhed-Dhone electrification project is one of the important electrification projects being executed in the Zone. Once the entire project is completed, it will help provide seamless rail connectivity and enhance operational efficiency.
