India’s first elevated railway track coming up in Rohtak

India’s first ever elevated railway track project has been launched in Rohtak, Haryana. The project is expected to be complete in the next 18 months. The new elevated railway track is expected to control and diminish the major problem of traffic jams across Rohtak. The elevated railway track will be constructed at Rs 315 crore. The Indian Railways will spend a sum of Rs 90 crore out of the Rs 315 crore, while the remaining amount will be spent by the Haryana Government. The elevated Railway Line on the Rohtak-Gohana stretch will be constructed by eliminating five busy level crossings, which link residential colonies of the region. The project is also expected to result in flexible railway operations. The elevated railway track will be constructed adjoining to existing alignment leaving 12-m-wide strip for construction of road. As reported, the project will help the railway authorities study the role of elevated railway tracks in eliminating heavy traffic woes across congested cities and how it controls the urban transportation chaos.
