Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugarate the 351-kilometres long New Bhaupur- New Khurja section in Uttar Pradesh of the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor (EDFC) through a video conferencing event today. Along with this, he will also flag off the initiative’s operation control centre (OCC) at Prayagraj in the presence of UP’s chief minister, Yogi Adityanath.

The line, built at a cost of 5,750 crore rupees will open new avenues for various industries in UP including the aluminum businesses, glassware and textile manufacturing and dairy production units. Further with this, the main line between Delhi and Kanpur is bound to see a considerable reduction in traffic.

With a goal to decongest the railway lines, this construction will provide a separate channel for goods travel. The PM has often spoken about the central government’s priority to focus on the consistent development of infrastructure of the country.

The EDFC is a freight specific railway under construction in northern to eastern India by the Indian Railways that will run between Ludhiana in Punjab and Dankuni in West Bengal.
