 Decision                   :   Sanction of project of doubling of Jaunpur- Akbarpur (Tanda) 77.25 km long section in  Northern Railways
 Background  :   The Jaunpur-Akbarpur section falls in Lucknow Division of Northern Railways. At present  detention of trains in Jaunpur-Akbarpur is high (140 minutes) as 31 trains are running on  single line section.  Present capacity utilization is 133%. Also 14 more freight trains are  expected each day with augmentation of National Thermal Power Corporation plant at Tanda  by January, 2019.Doubling is absolutely necessary and it would not only speed up operation  of goods and passenger trains but will also provide additional capacity for meeting the  increased traffic in future.
 Strategy and  targets  :  (i)  Anticipated cost of  Rs 676.36 crore with completion cost of  Rs 766.33 crore of the  project is proposed to be funded through Gross Budgetary Support

 (ii) This project is scheduled for completion by 2021-22

  1. Project of doubling of New Maynaguri-Gumanihat (51.65km) in Northeast Frontier Railway
 Decision                   :   Sanction of Project of  doubling of New Maynaguri-Gumanihat (51.65km) in Northeast  Frontier Railway
 Background  :  The project section is a part of Malda-Guwahati Main line route. For the route connecting to  North East region this is the only 51 km patch left for doubling and it is necessary for overall  development of the region and to reap the benefits of other doubling projects and gauge  conversion projects completed in the section. The line capacity utilization of the section  between Raninagar Jalpaiguri to Samuktala Road is 145.70% with maintenance block during  2016-17. At present, 38 trains are running against the sectional capacity of 22 trains.  Doubling is therefore absolutely necessary to speed up operation of goods and passenger  trains and for overall development of the region.
 Strategy and  targets  :  (i) Anticipated cost of Rs 602.27 crore with completion cost of  Rs 648.19 crore of the project  is proposed to be funded through Gross Budgetary Support

  1. Project of  Etawah Flyover 10.978 km in North Central Railway
 Decision                   :   Sanction of Etawah Flyover 10.978 km in North Central Railway
 Background  :  This flyover will help in avoiding surface crossing on busy Delhi Howrah route and will help  in reducing detentions and removing bottlenecks. Trains coming from Gwalior/Agra to  Etawah will move via flyover over UP & DN lines. Trains from Gwalior/Agra and going to  Mainpuri will move via flyover and branch off to Mainpuri. Trains coming from Etawah and  going to Mainpuri will move via flyover, over the UP & DN main lines. This flyover at Etawah  will help in improving punctuality of passenger trains and smooth running of the routes i.e.  Howrah- Kanpur-New Delhi, Etawah –Bhind & Agra and Etawah- Mainpuri.
 Strategy and  targets  :  (i) Anticipated cost of  Rs 830.73 crore with completion cost of  Rs 894.47 crore of the project  is proposed to be funded through Gross Budgetary Support
