The Railway Board has approved a Preliminary Engineering and Traffic (PET) survey for the new broad-gauge railway line project between Belagavi (Km 79.70) and Kolhapur (Km 220.60), which is part of the new Dharwad-Kolhapur new BG railway line.

The advertised value for this survey is 5,502,735.00, with a stipulated completion period of 6 months. The maximum design speed for the new line is set at 160 Kmph.

The PET survey has been initiated to thoroughly investigate the technical feasibility of the proposed new railway line project. The focus is on determining the most viable alignment by exploring various alternatives, including optimization of existing facilities. The assessment will be conducted using advanced photogrammetric techniques, utilizing remote sensing satellite imagery data and high-resolution drone imagery data.

The primary objectives of the PET survey include:

1. Techno-Economical Alignment: Determine the most cost-effective alignment for the new railway line project.

2. Data Processing: Utilize photogrammetric techniques to process satellite-based Stereo Raw Imagery.

3. Digital Model Generation: Generate Digital Terrain Model (DTM), Digital Surface Model (DSM), orthophoto, and topographical map.

4. Considerations: Take into account stability considerations, geological and hydrological factors, construction feasibility, accessibility, safety, maintainability, and environmental considerations.

5. Contractor Appointment: The railway intends to appoint a qualified Contractor to carry out the PET survey, ensuring a comprehensive and detailed examination of the proposed new line.

The Railway Board has given its approval for the Preliminary Engineering and Traffic (PET) survey of the new broad-gauge railway line project connecting Belagavi and Kolhapur. This project is part of the larger Dharwad-Kolhapur new BG railway line. The survey, valued at $5,502,735.00, is expected to be completed within 6 months.

  1. This BG Line shall be double line, almost parallel to NH4 in North-South direction, with further goal to connect Satara.

    Create new Belagavi Railway station along NH4 and declare existing station as Belagavi Cantonment.

    Similarly create new Kolhapur Road station along NH4 and connect existing Kolhapur station to Kokan railway reaching out to Ratnagiri. Rail route passing through Kolhapur city needs to be elevated to cross city limits.
