Jalandhar-Pathankot Double Railway Track Completed

Doubling of the Railway Track between Suchi Pind ( Jalandhar ) and Chakki Bank ( Pathankot ) is complete. After undergoing a statutory safety inspection, it would be made operational in this week. This would greatly ease the smooth flow of trains which otherwise had to make un-schedule stops to let trains from opposing directions to pass. To ensure greater safety ,Railway authorities are , also working on making many, en-route ,unmanned railway crossings manned crossings.

Residents of Bhogpur, in the meanwhile, are demanding the restoration of the stoppage of Ahmedabad Mail and also the contiued stoppage of Jammu Mail at Bhogpur.

The railway link from Una ( Himachal Pradesh) to Mukerian, via Talwara should , also , be completed on a fast pace. This would ensure another railway route to Pathankot/ Jammu, by-assing the busy stations of Ludhiana and Jalandhar.
