Get ready, Odisha! PM Narendra Modi is set to unveil a wave of railway projects through a special video conference on Tuesday. This is not just any unveiling; it’s a massive boost to the state’s railway infrastructure!

So, what’s on the cards? Brace yourself for 274 railway projects, including a mix of new beginnings and upgrades. Among these are 162 electronic interlocking systems, 41 innovative one station one product (OSOP) stalls, and 50 solar power stations. But wait, there’s more! Five goods sheds, nine new lines, and projects for doubling and third lines are also part of this grand plan.

In this exciting lineup, there’s even room for some cutting-edge technology with four auto signalling systems making an entrance. And that’s not all! The PM will inaugurate a Gati Shakti terminal, a Jan Ausadhi Kendra (medical store), and something unique – a rail coach restaurant!

But let’s talk about the star of the show – the third Vande Bharat Express for Odisha! This high-speed marvel will zip between Puri and Visakhapatnam six days a week, offering a swift and comfortable ride for passengers.

Now, let’s dive into the specifics of some of these projects. The PM will dedicate nine new lines and doubling and third line projects, including:

  1. Haridaspur-Byree third line worth Rs 234 crore
  2. Damanjodi-Baiguda double line worth Rs 131 crore
  3. Singapur Road-Rayagada third line worth Rs 167 crore
  4. Semiliguda-Araku-Gorakhpur double line worth Rs 123 crore
  5. Kothavalasa-Badavara double line worth Rs 47 crore
  6. Jharsuguda-Jamaga fourth line worth Rs 550 crore
  7. Bondamunda-Ranchi doubling section link B-link C worth Rs 61.73 crore
  8. Nawagaon-Orga double line worth Rs 129.95 crore
  9. Ranital fourth line worth Rs 36.12 crore

These projects are not just about trains and tracks; they’re about empowerment! The OSOP stalls will give a platform to local products, supporting the ‘vocal for local’ vision. Additionally, the rail coach restaurant will offer a unique dining experience, catering to both passengers and the public alike.

But that’s not all; there’s a cherry on top! This initiative is expected to create job opportunities for both skilled and unskilled workers, bringing a wave of economic growth along with it.

So, mark your calendars, Odisha! The railway revolution is coming your way, promising a brighter, faster, and more connected future for us all!
