    Konkan Railway Expansion
    In its quest to double its operational ambit, the Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd. (KRCL) is all set to invest over Rs. 4,500-cr to double its capacity in the near future and a detailed project report in this connection is being been prepared, chairman and MD Sanjay Gupta said, adding that Railway ministry has accorded in-principle approval for the proposal, and out of the 700 odd km route network, patch doubling will be taken up on 147 km route stretch. The work on line doubling between Roha and Veer at a cost of Rs. 340-cr has commenced even as electrification of the entire KRCL route network would be taken up at a cost of Rs. 710cr. Currently, 53 pairs of passenger trains and 16 goods trains operate on the Konkan network, and KRCL wants these numbers to double with the capacity expansion.
