Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate to the nation two additional railway lines connecting Thane and Diva on Friday (18 February), an official release said on Thursday (17 February).

He will also flag off two suburban trains of the Mumbai Suburban Railway.

Kalyan is the main junction of Central Railway as the traffic coming from North side and Southern side of the country merge at Kalyan and moves towards CSMT (Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus), the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said in a release.

Out of the four tracks between Kalyan and CSTM, two tracks were used for slow local trains and two tracks for fast local, mail express and goods trains.

To segregate suburban and long distance trains, two additional tracks were planned, the release said.

The two additional railway lines connecting Thane and Diva have been built at the approximate cost of Rs 620 crore and features 1.4 km long rail flyover, three major bridges, 21 minor bridges.

These lines will significantly remove the interference of long distance train’s traffic with suburban train’s traffic in Mumbai and will also enable the introduction of 36 new suburban trains in the city, the release said.
