Final Location Survey for BG line doubling from Bathinda-Bhildi.
North Western Railway
Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat
The Indian Railway is the lifeline to the whole country in terms of carrying goods as well as passengers to all corners of the country. Rajasthan being the place of tourist interest attracts much traffic from and outside the country.
Keeping in mind the North Western railway considered capacity development by Doubling of present existing single BG line that connects Punjab Haryana Rajasthan Gujarat in North to South direction to improve frequency of trains, improving max speed to 130 kmph than the current max speed of 100 kmph and hence better timing and convenience.
The existing BG line is the main rail connector of 4 important Indian states namely Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat for freight as well as passenger traffic. The project stretch begins from Bathinda, a major junction station of Punjab and runs through Hisar, a very important junction station of Haryana and thereafter it enters into Rajasthan state to traverse Sadulpur & Ratangarh Junction to reach Degana Junction. Thus this line provides connectivity to Jodhpur, a very eminent tourist attraction of Rajasthan. Then further the line passes through Luni & Samdari junction to enter Gujarat state to finally reach Bhildi Junction through the agricultural areas of Gujarat.
