    Kalyan-Ahmednagar rail link to start this fiscal

    By Staff

    Thane, Nov 30 (UNI) The proposed Kalyan-Ahmednagar rail link, covering altogether 25 stations, will start this fiscal, according to the Indian Railway sources.

    It was informed by the Central Railway to the Thane District Rail Passengers Association (TDRPA) through an official communique.

    After receiving the official communication, TDRPA leader Om Prakash Sharma told UNI here today that this rail link would be the lifeline for lakhs of people in Thane, Pune and Ahmednagar districts of Maharashtra.

    Earlier, the association had taken up a series of agitation demanding the proposed link along with another Dahanu-Nashik rail link. However, the later has been rejected after a detailed survey.

    ''There are several villagers in the districts who have never dreamt of a rail line passing through their villages. This link will surely reduce the burden of traffic on roads,'' Mr Prakash said.

    The link will connect 25 railway stations covering the three districts. Starting from Kalyan it would cover Vithalwadi, Ulhasnagar, Ambernath, Kambha Road, Apti, Potgaon, Murbad, Rav, Daheri, Milhe, Naptar Cabin, Bairranath Cabin, Madh and Junnar Road, Otur, Padanwadi, Malvadi, Katedwadi, Shidewadi, Wasunde, Dhotre, Dhalvani, Hamidpur and finally Ahmednagar.

    The 246 kms of railway line passes through the ghat sections and hence some tunnels would also be constructed.
