Proposed Haryana Orbital Rail Corridor Project will help in developing multimodal logistics hubs & provide high-speed seamless connectivity to Dedicated Freight Corridor network


The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by the Prime Minister, has given its approval to the Haryana Orbital Rail Corridor Project from Palwal to Sonipat via Sohna-Manesar-Kharkhauda. 


This rail line will start from Palwal and end at existing Harsana Kalan station (on Delhi-Ambala section).  This will also give connectivity en route to the existing Patli station (on Delhi-Rewari line), Sultanpur station (on Garhi Harsaru-Farukhnagar line) and Asaudha station (on Delhi Rohtak line). 


Implementation 


The project will be implemented by Haryana Rail Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (HRIDC), a joint venture company set up by the Ministry of Railways with the Government of Haryana. The project will have joint participation of Ministry of Railways, Government of Haryana and private stakeholders.


Estimated completion cost of the project is Rs 5,617 crore and it is likely to be completed in 5 years.


Benefits


The districts of Palwal, Nuh, Gurugram, Jhajjar and Sonipat districts of Haryana will be benefitted through this rail line.


This will facilitate diversion of traffic not meant for Delhi, thus decongesting NCR and will help in developing multimodal logistics hubs in Haryana state sub-region of NCR. It will provide high-speed seamless connectivity of this region to Dedicated Freight Corridor network, resulting in reduction in cost and time of transportation for ex-im traffic from NCR to ports, making exports of goods more competitive. This efficient transport corridor, along with other initiatives, will provide enabling infrastructure to attract multinational industries to set up manufacturing units to fulfil the ‘Make in India’ mission. The project will connect unserved areas of Haryana, thereby boosting economic and social activities in the state. This multipurpose transport project will also facilitate affordable and faster commuter travel, long distance travel in different directions from Gurugram and the industrial regions of Manesar, Sohna, Farukhnagar, Kharkhauda and Sonipat.


Approximately 20,000 passengers each day will be travelling through this line and 50 million tonnes of goods traffic would also be carried every year, said a release.
