Indore: A railway route electrification
project on Ujjain-Indore line is likely to be completed by the
end of September next, a railway official said Tuesday.

"The Rs 70 crore project through Maksi railway route
was initiated in year 2007-8 but due to some technical and
contractual reasons, it has been delayed," M P Singh, chief
project manager of Rail Electrification told PTI on phone from
Kota (Rajasthan).

So far, 80 per cent work on electrification of the 115
km-long route has been completed and the remaining was
underway on war footing, Singh said adding that the electric
poles between Shastri Bridge and Patel Bridge in Indore have
been erected.

It would be a "Y" circuit of electrification on
Ujjain-Indore and Maski-Devas rail routes, he said.

When asked whether there was any plan for
electrification between Sawaimadhopur to Jaipur in Rajasthan,
he denied any such move.
