The people of Rajasthan’s Dungarpur district will benefit from improved connectivity via the Indian Railways network. Three new trains have received the green signal in this region following the CRS of the new broad-gauge line laid between Ahmedabad and Udaipur. Two trains will run via Dungarpur from Udaipur to Asarwa (Ahmedabad). From October 19, a third train will run from Jaipur to Asarwa (Ahmedabad) via Udaipur and Dungarpur.
For the first time, Dungarpur will be directly connected to Udaipur, Jaipur, and Ahmedabad by rail connectivity. After the completion of the Udaipur broad gauge work, Indian Railways has given the nod to run three new trains.
There is currently only one train operation between Dungarpur tand Asarwa (Ahmedabad). The three trains are likely to run from October 19 but at present authorities are yet to put a stamp on the final decision.
North Western Railway PRO Ashok Kumar said that the two trains will be operational from Udaipur to Asarwa (Ahmedabad). Theother train will run between Jaipur and Ahmedabad. The biggest benefit of this will be to passengers travelling for work. These trains are likely start from October 19 but the final decision is yet to be taken.
For a long time, work had been underway to convert the Udaipur-Ahmedabad track to broad gauge. Previously, the journey from Udaipur to Ahmedabad took 10 hours. The introduction of broad-gauge railway tracks has reduced the duration of this journey to just five hours.
