HYDERABAD: South Central Railway (SCR) has completed the electrification of a 67-km railway line between Manoharabad and Kamareddy. This is one of the important parts of the Telangana region, connecting northern parts of the country. The project is done as part of Manmad – Mudkhed – Dhone electrification.

It was sanctioned in 2015-16 for a distance of 783 km at an estimated cost of Rs 865 crore. The stretch between Manoharabad – Mahbubnagar is excluded from this project as it was already sanctioned under a separate project and completed.

The length of the project in Telangana is approximately 310 km between Dharmabad-Kurnool city (excluding Manoharabad-Mahbubnagar). Earlier, the electrification of the stretch between Nizamabad-Jankampet-Bodhan for a stretch of 26 km was completed in March.

Now the stretch between Manoharabad-Kamareddi has been completed and the work in the remaining parts of the project is progressing rapidly. The electrification of railway lines helps provide seamless movement of trains by avoiding changes in traction.
