Railway Minister Piyush Goyal was praising the idea of connecting the cities with Nagpur through metro, said the Indian Railways will replicate the model in other parts of the country if it succeeds in the state.

Fadnavis said, “the new corridor will provide quicker transport of both goods and passengers across the state.”
Nitin Gadkari, addressing the event, said “the new service will benefit the people by lowering the transportation cost and also reduce pollution and risks of accidents.”
Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, who was present during the signing of the MoU, accepted a suggestion put forth by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavisto develop a parallel high-speed railway corridor to the Samruddhi Mahamarg between Nagpur and Mumbai.

The Karachi Port Trust chairman, Rear Admiral Jamil Akhter said this while apprising the media of the initiative in the presence of federal minister for foreign and maritime affairs, Abdullah Hussain Haroon in the mega port city on Friday.
The KPT chairman conceded that the South Asia Pakistan Terminal (SAPT) was surrounded by thickly populated localities, lacked direct connection with any major artery to facilitate rapid movement of port traffic.
The freight corridor, said the KPT chairman, would have a dedicated railway track and road network complete with LNG and POL pipelines.
Chinese, as well as Western entities, have shown interest in the project, said the KPT chairman.
The KPT was also working on an elevated expressway starting from Keamari to Northern Bypass for providing signal-free exit and entry road network to port traffic.
Until these projects were completed, the KPT would impress upon Pakistan Railways to transport more containers from Karachi Port to upcountry, said he.
Previously, PR used to provide only 180 bogies per month but now the railways have increased the number to 4,000 per month – creating a win-win situation as both state institutions were now earning far greater revenue through supporting each other.
As things stand, said Admiral Akhter, presently only one percent of port cargo was being shipped by railways whereas the global standard is around 40pc. As PR hauls more containers, the city roads too would be relieved off the pressure, added he.
The KPT chairman said the entity was initiating other projects like Oyster Rock Container Terminal and bulk cargo project at East and West Wharf.
Besides, work is going on for increasing the capacity of two roads passing through Clifton and all heavy vehicles/trucks parked at East and West Wharf have been removed which has also streamlined the flow of traffic, he maintained.
The chairman hoped that once these connectivity projects are completed within the next five years, many transport issues confronting the port as well as the city of Karachi with regards to traffic jams and congestions would be resolved.
Responding to a question, he said, after removing coal handling from Karachi Port on the Supreme Court’s orders, the port started handling alternate cargo like seeds, having an annual volume of up to 3 million tonnes. This has offset the revenue loss incurred on account of coal handling, he said.
In response to another question, the KPT chairman said the port could go for self-financing for desalination (co-gen) plant being set-up near Oyster Rock to meet the ever-worsening water crisis.

The 190-km dedicated freight corridor between Dadri in Uttar Pradesh and Phulera in Rajasthan, falling under the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (WDFC) is likely to be dedicated to the nation on 15 August, Business Standard has reported.
The Prime Minister’s speech on the country’s seventy-second Independence Day is likely to feature the announcement, it being counted as a major achievement of the NDA government. This will be the last Independence Day speech by PM Modi in this term and is supposed to set the tone for the upcoming national elections.

get its first dedicated freight corridor on August 15, 2018 which will increase its freight handling capacity, while reducing congestion on the main tracks.click here pic.twitter.com/Jz1JFbjwIC

Earlier a test run by the Indian Railways on the corridor was successful as the 190-km test journey was completed within four hours. The locomotive also reached a maximum speed of 100 kmph during the trail run.
The total cost estimate for the two dedicated freight corridors - eastern and western - is Rs 81,459 crore with the Japan International Cooperation Agency providing over Rs 38,000 crore as loan for the WDFC. The Railways plans to commission both the corridors by April 2020.
A government official quoted in the report said, “The feeder route at Tundla is already in place and the Ateli-Phulera route will be functional on August 15.”
“There will be at least 10 feeder lines in the western corridor only connecting the main line to the supply freight. This is going to reduce the traffic by more than half in these busy routes,” he added.
Although conceptualised in 2008, the work on the corridor gained pace only in the last four years with land being acquired and contracts being awarded for the route. Availability of funds through the loan was also ensured by the NDA government even as cost of the project ballooned 189 per cent from the 2008 price of a little over Rs 28,000 to the current Rs 81,459 crore.
