Jammu Baramulla Railway Line Project: Banihal-Sangaldan railway (J&K)  

The PM inaugurated the Banihal-Sangaldan railway line in Jammu and Kashmir, aiming to connect Baramulla in North Kashmir to Udhampur in Jammu. The railway section includes tunnels, bridges, and escape tunnels for passenger safety.


Benefits of this Project:

This route provides a crucial travel option when the National Highway-44 is closed due to landslides. Additionally, it promotes tourism and economic activity in remote areas of the Jammu division.

While the Valley is not yet fully integrated into the Indian railways network, completion is expected by May.

The new train route significantly reduces travel time between Srinagar and Jammu and facilitates the transportation of goods, benefiting the people of Kashmir economically.

About the Jammu–Baramulla railway line:

It aims to connect the Kashmir Valley with the rest of India, stretching 338 km from Jammu to Baramulla. Managed by the Firozpur railway division of Indian Railways’ Northern zone, it includes the Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Rail Link (USBRL), featuring the world’s tallest railway bridge, the Chenab Bridge.

It was initiated in 1996 by Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao and declared a national project in 2002 by Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
