The South Central Railway (SCR) has commissioned the longest electrified tunnel in the Indian Railways on 4 July 2019. The tunnel, measuring 6.6 km, is situated between Cherlopalli and Rapuru stations in Andhra Pradesh and is part of the 113 km new railway line completed recently between Obulavaripalli– Venkatachalam–Krishnapatnam Port. Two freight trains have run successfully on the electrified railway line a few days ago, thereby opening up viable rail connectivity between Krishnapatnam Port and its hinterland for goods train services. The tunnel was constructed in a record time of 43 months. The new railway line is helpful for decongesting traffic on the Vijayawada-Gudur main line. The tunnel will reduce the distance between Krishnapatnam Port and the hinterland areas by 60 km. At present, the average travel time taken by goods train from Krishnapatnam Port to Obulavaripali is 10 hours. With the commissioning of the new line, it will be reduced to five hours. The electrified tunnel has been constructed in the shape of a horse shoe on the New Australian Tunnelling Method, at a cost of Rs 460 crore. The height of the tunnel (rail level to roof ) is 6.5 mtr and the minimum height of the contact wire is maintained at 5.2 mtr. | Updated on: 05 - Jul - 2019
