The long cherished dream of Nizamabad and Karimnagar districts is becoming a reality with decks being cleared to commission the newly-built railway line between them on Saturday. Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will dedicate the 180-km-long line to the nation through the video link from Secunderabad on Saturday.

Foundation was laid for the line between Peddapalli and Nizamabad by then Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao in 1994 and it has taken 23 years to be completed in a phased manner. Work came to a standstill after the line was built upto Jagityal a few years ago. Gradually, it was extended to Morthad and passenger trains began moving between Karimnagar-Morthad since last year.

A good deal of allocation, Rs 142 crore, was made in the Railway budget in the previous year and this paved the way for its completion. The railway line will become a nerve center in the railway map of the country as it will connect all the key lines. It will also help reduce travel time and distance between Maharashtra and New Delhi.

The district headquarters town will become a junction as it connects Secunderabad and Nanded routes. The Railway authorities said initially, for a couple of months, demo train with three coaches will run to Morthad and thereafter, passenger trains will ply on the route. They are not sure of commissioning the express trains immediately. However, freight carriers will run soon, says an official, pleading anonymity. There are about 25 stations between Nizamabad-Karimnagar. Line-checking is being done thoroughly and workers are on the job day and night. Arrangements are on for the conduct of a formal function marking the inaugural expected to be attended by District Collector, Commissioner of Police, Mayor and other elected representatives here on Saturday.
