Jindal Stainless will supply 3,500 tons stainless steel for the Indian Railway's Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Railway Link (USBRL) tunnel coming up in Jammu and Kashmir. The project is a 272 km-long railway link between Jammu and Kashmir. This will be the first-ever application of stainless-steel cable trays in an Indian railway project and will be a milestone in improving the economic landscape of J&K. It lauds Indian Railways on achieving the engineering marvel by overcoming various topographical challenges and appreciate its decision to choose stainless steel for developing a sustainable railway infrastructure.
Managing Director, JSL, Abhyuday Jindal, informed that its wholly owned subsidiary Jindal Stainless Steelway Ltd will supply "EN 1.4404/316L (dual certification) stainless steel grade in 2B finish" for the project owing to its high corrosion resistance, high strength-to-weight ratio, and a lower life cycle cost. USBRL has been declared a project of national importance and is the biggest one in the construction of a mountain railway since independence. It is also the highest altitude railway network and the most challenging railway project undertaken by the Indian Railways as it will provide an all-weather and reliable connectivity to Jammu and Kashmir.
