IR registers growth in track construction

In a key development, the progress of railway track projects, that is, new lines, gauge conversion and multi-tracking (doubling/tripling), has shot up almost three times in the April-September 2022 period (as of Sep­tem­ber 21, 2022) vis-a-vis last year. As of September 21, 2022, IR has completed a total of 1,353 track km (tkm) of new lines (42 tkm), gauge conversion (28 tkm) and multi-tracking pro­jects. Another 150 tkm is likely to be added in September 2022.
