The CCEA, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, cleared the construction of an electrified third line between Manmad and Jalgaon in Maharashtra.
The construction of the 160-km line at an estimated cost of Rs 1,035.16 crore is likely to be completed in the next five years.
The estimated cost of the project will be Rs 1,028.95 crore. The project is likely to be completed in next five years.
The doubling of these lines will remove the pressure on the congested North Central Railway route by providing an alternative route.
The total length of the line will be 401.47 km. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 3,631 crore which will be funded through 50:50 cost-sharing by the state government and the railway ministry.
The project is likely to be completed in five years.
The project fulfils the commitment given in the Andhra Pradesh Bifurcation Act regarding the increased rail connectivity to Amravati, the capital of Andhra Pradesh.
