Kottayam rail doubling to be completed in 2020

Work on the rail track doubling through Kottayam will reportedly be completed by March 2020, while efforts are being made to make the Centre completely fund the long-pending doubling work through Alappuzha. Also, the 9-km-long Changanassery-Chingavanam and 8-km-long Kurupunthara-Ettumanur stretches will be doubled by May 31. Further, according to reports, the 19-km-long Chingavanam-Ettumanur stretch will also be doubled by March 2020, and instructions have been given to the District Collector to speed up the acquisition of land.

Only 13 km of the total of 100 km track in the district and adjacent Ernakulam has reportedly been doubled. The new railway proposals for Kerala that are under active consideration include the Rs 55,335 crore elevated corridor linking Thiruvananthapuram and Kasaragod. Also, survey is under way for the 214 km Thalassery-Mysuru line. The other projects are Rs 1600 crore 65 km Erumeli-Punalur and Ettumanur-Pala corridors.
