Indore (Madhya Pradesh): There is good news for railway passengers as the second railway line between Indore and Ujjain is likely to open for operation by December 28 night or December 29.   The finishing work on the Indore-Ujjain doubling project is going on at a fast pace.  The work of track doubling on the 73.79 km long Indore-Ujjain section is being carried out in three blocks. The doubling work between Barlia-Laxmibai Nagar block, which is about 21 km long is going on at a fast pace.

Under the project, the yard remodelling work at Mangliagaon and Laxmibai Nagar railway station is going on at war footing.  ‘Under the mega block the speed of the yard remodelling of both the railway stations has been increased and as a result, the remaining work like track and signal linking is going on at a fast pace. We are working to complete the entire doubling work by December 26.

Importantly, the date of inspection by the Commissioner Railway Safety is fixed for December 28. Generally, CRS gives on the spot nod for opening up of any new line for train operation. As a procedure, the Construction Department formally releases the project completion certificate. If everything goes well, the second line may open for movement of the trains by December 28 itself or by December 29,’ high level official sources informed this correspondent on Thursday.
