CCEA nod for doubling of Daund-Manmad railway line in Maharashtra

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) yesterday gave its approval for the doubling of the 247.5 km Daund-Manmad railway line in Maharashtra.
An official press release said the estimated cost of the project will be Rs. 2,081.27 crore and the completion cost  Rs. 2,330.51 crore with 5% escalation per annum. The project is likely to be completed by 2021-22.
The project is expected to ease passenger and freight traffic and decongest the Daund-Manmad route, which is a critical section for trains from North India to South India via Pune and for pilgrims going to the famous pilgrimage destinations of Shirdi and Shani-Shignapur, an official press release said.
It will also ease the congestion in Mumbai by diverting the trains to this route, the release said.
