is at 80 Kmph.
The new line between New Piduguralla – Savalyapuram will facilitate direct traffic movement from Secunderabad to Dhone direction via New Piduguralla, bypassing Nallapadu junction. This 46 Kms new rail line will reduce the distance by approximately 96 Kms for the rail travel between Secunderabad to Dhone via Nadikude as compared to the earlier route passing through Nallapadu.
Nadikudi - Srikalahasti new railway line project is o­ne of the important & prestigious projects taken up in the State of Andhra Pradesh by South Central Railway connecting interior regions of Guntur, Prakasham and Nellore Districts o­n the rail map. The project was sanctioned in the year 2011-12 for a distance of 309 Kms at an estimated cost of Rs.2289 Cr under 50 % cost sharing basis between Railways and Government of Andhra Pradesh along with provision of required land free of cost by State Government.
The project is being executed in 5 phases :
Phase-I: Piduguralla – Savalyapuram (47 km)
Phase-II: Gundlakamma – Darsi (27 Km)
Phase-III: Darsi – Kanigiri (52 Km) & Venkatagiri - Alturipadu (15 Km)
Phase-IV: Kanigiri – Pamuru (35 Km) & Atluripadu - Venkatapuram (43 km)
Phase-V: Pamuru – Obulayapalle – Venkatapuram (90 km)
The project has been taken up for the expansion of rail network in Andhra Pradesh State and it is conceptualized as an alternate route to the present Coastal Railway line between Vijayawada and Chennai. The present route is saturated and sometimes is subjected to cyclone and floods, resulting in serious rail traffic disruptions. The proposed new line will not o­nly act as an alternate route but will also facilitate freight transport in this mineral rich belt, besides offering scope for substantial passenger traffic. The project o­nce completed, will serve as the shortest route between Guntur and the temple town, Tirupati.
Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, South Central Railway has congratulated all the Officials and staff of Guntur Division, Construction organization who have played key role in successful completion of this vital Project in Andhra Pradesh region. He opined that completion of this project has paved way for smooth and timely running of freight trains as well as enhancement of passenger trains. He also advised to maintain the same tempo in execution of the work for the entire project which will help in developing the region and will ease out the traffic congestion.

A seemingly innocuous issue relating to payment of compensation to five acres of land in two villages of Sattenapalli and Vinukonda mandals has emerged as a major bottleneck in the completion of the Nadikudi-Sirkalahasti new railway line project being undertaken by the South Central Railway. The project has been taken up as joint project, with the Andhra Pradesh government bearing 50% of the estimated cost of ₹2,289 crore.
The issue relating to payment of compensation to the land, which belonged to the Endowments Department, and was being used for agricultural purposes by local farmers, is now with the Arbitration Bench of the High Court. The Government of Andhra Pradesh has already deposited ₹67 lakh in lieu of market price of land in

the court, but the logjam continues over the payment. While the Endowment Department claims that the land is in its possession, the farmers are claiming ownership of land.
The delay in acquisition of land at Savalyapuram village in Vinukonda mandal and Rajupalem village in Sattenapalli mandal has been holding up the project connecting Piduguralla to Savalyapuram stations.
“The delay in awarding compensation to land owners is delaying the execution of the project. Works worth ₹450 crore are waiting to be completed, and we are racing against time to complete the project,” said a senior railway official.
The Railways has asked for 5,189 acres of land in Guntur, Prakasam and Nellore districts.
The Nadikudi-Srikalahasti railway project, sanctioned in 2011-2012 at an estimated cost of ₹2.289 crore, is a game changer as it serves as an alternative route to the heavily congested Howrah-Chennai railway line. It also serves as a vital link between Guntur and Tirupati and boost the transportation of freight from the industrial belt in Guntur to Rayalaseema region and beyond. The project connects Secunderabad-Guntur line at Nadikudi in Guntur district and Gudur-Renigunta main line at Srikalahasti in Chitoor district covering a distance of 309 km.
The new railway line will also connect hinterlands and the backward interior areas of Guntur, Prakasam and Nellore districts, besides providing connectivity to Capital Amaravati.
