A staggering 416 kilometers of track have been seamlessly integrated into the zone’s rail network, which is the highest-ever track addition in a single financial year in the zone since its inception, underscoring SCR’s commitment to advancing railway infrastructure

The key to this success lies in the meticulous attention given to timely commissioning of rail lines, coupled with effective planning and execution. Notably, the construction and commissioning of 39 kilometers of new lines, 54 kilometers of gauge conversion, 133 kilometers of double lines, and 190 kilometers of third lines represent a collective addition of 416 kilometers to the rail network during the financial year 2023-24.
