Major Infrastructure Boost: NPG assesses 3 upcoming highway, rail, and metro projects in Maharashtra, Andhra and J&K

This week, the Network Planning Group (NPG) held its 72nd meeting in New Delhi. Rajeev Singh Thakur, the Additional Secretary of the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), presided over the meeting. Three significant infrastructure projects from the Ministries of Housing and Urban Affairs, Railways, and Road Transport and Highways were the main focus of the evaluation. The degree to which each project adhered to the PM GatiShakti National Master Plan was evaluated.

Project for National Highway in Jammu and Kashmir
A 51-kilometer stretch of NH-701 from Rafiabad to Chamkot would be built and upgraded, according to a project submitted by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. There are 14.34 km of greenfield and 36.66 km of brownfield in this project.

The redesigned road will greatly improve Tangdhar, Chowkibal, and Kupwara village’s connectivity. By providing improved access to healthcare, education, and commercial possibilities, this improvement will improve socioeconomic conditions and strengthen logistical support for defence forces.

Andhra Pradesh’s Gudur-Renigunta Third Rail Line
The goal is to build a third rail line in Andhra’s Tirupati district, connecting the stations of Gudur and Renigunta. The 83.17 km line, which is expected to cost INR 884 crores, is intended to boost the capacity of the current double line.

Expected Effect

Movement of passengers and cargo will be more efficient as a result of this initiative. The project calls for 36.58 hectares of land and involves modernising the infrastructure with new bridges, longer underpasses, and sophisticated signalling systems. It is anticipated that these upgrades will greatly increase local economic activity.

Maharashtra’s Extension of the Pune Metro Line
The operational metro corridor in Pune has been suggested to be extended from Vanaz to Ramwadi by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. Two lines will be extended as part of the project: an elevated 1.12 km stretch from Vanaz to Chandani Chowk and an elevated 11.63 km stretch from Ramwadi to Wagholi/Vitthalwadi. This elevated metro route will be 12.75 kilometres long and cost approximately INR 3,757 crores.

Expected Effect

By 2027, the line is predicted to have 3.59 lakh daily riders, and by 2057, it would have 9.93 lakh riders. By connecting Pune’s developing suburbs with the city centre, this extension will reduce travel times, ease traffic, and significantly enhance the public transportation system in the area.

All projects were assessed for integrated planning and conformity with the PM GatiShakti National Master Plan (NMP) principles at the meeting. The socioeconomic benefits, increased efficiency, reduced transit costs, and greater connectivity are highlighted. The projects also aim to advance multimodal integration, which will enhance the networks for logistics and transportation as a whole.

It is anticipated that each of these infrastructure projects will be essential in combining different forms of mobility to offer significant socioeconomic advantages. They intend to participate significantly to the overall development of the regions, improving ease of living and fostering economic growth.
