New Delhi, September 15

The Centre today approved the Haryana orbital rail corridor project from Palwal to Sonepat via Sohna, Manesar and Kharkhoda. The 121.7 km project was estimated to cost Rs 5,617 crore and proposed to be completed in five years.

121 km long

  • The 121.7 km project is estimated to cost Rs 5,617 crore and proposed to be completed in five years

  • Palwal, Nuh, Gurugram, Jhajjar and Sonepat districts will benefit from the rail line

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs cleared the project, to be be implemented by the Haryana Rail Infrastructure Corporation Limited, a joint venture company set up by the Ministry of Railways and the Government of Haryana.

This would facilitate diversion of traffic not meant for Delhi and help in developing multi-modal logistics hubs in Haryana sub-region of the NCR. The rail line would start from Palwal and end at the existing Harsana Kalan station on the Delhi-Ambala section.

This would give connectivity en route to the existing Patli station on the Delhi-Rewari line, Sultanpur station on the Garhi Harsaru-Farukhnagar line and Asaudha station on the Delhi-Rohtak line, an official release said.

The districts of Palwal, Nuh, Gurugram, Jhajjar and Sonepat would benefit from this rail line. It would provide high-speed seamless connectivity to the dedicated freight corridor network, resulting in reduction of cost and time of transportation for export-import traffic from the NCR to ports of India.
