Adilabad citizens pray for a rail line to Armoor

Adilabad railway station 
The People of the district have pinned lot of hopes on a provision in the railway Budget for the Adilabad- Armoor railway line, which will connect the west part of the district with Karimnagar and Nizamabad.

Adilabad MP Gadam Nagesh, who is hoping that the allocation will be made for it and for a railway over bridge in Adilabad town, said that he had put forth the proposal.

Nagesh said he proposed the Adilabad – Armoor railway line and allocation of funds for the same in this railway budget and already a railway line was extended to Armoor of Nizamabad, Karimnagar from Peddapalli.

‘There was a proposed 317 km Patancheru to Adilabad via Armoor and Nirmal railway line at a cost of Rs 3,700 crore was pending with the Railway Ministry. An  Armoor- Karimnagar line  has already been laid’ said Nagesh adding that now the line between Armoor to Adilabad covering the distance of 135 km had to be taken up’.

‘the Railway ministry declared the Armoor- Adilabad line as unviable during the 2011-12’ he recalled , but he had approached the ministry once again, appealing  to them to keep in mind that this was a backward, tribal area and  this would be a proposed railway track to the newly formed Telangana state’.

The ministry had taken his appeal into consideration and revived the plan to play new railway line between Armoor to Adilabad via Nirmal.     

Sources said, there was every possibility of getting sanction to the railway over bridge near Tamsi bus stand in the Adilabad to enable the people to the cross over easily and also permit the free flow of traffic.
