New railway line likely to NTPC-Simhadri

Visakhapatnam: A parallel railway line from the city to NTPC-Simhadri will come up soon, said district collector N Yuvaraj at a meeting held with the officials concerned at his office on Friday.

The officials informed the collector that the proposal envisages the construction of a 19.36 kilometre railway line from Jaggayyapalem in the city to the NTPC thermal power plant. They estimated that 124.94 acres of land will be required for the project.

While the state government has 13.75 acres of land, the balance land would have to be acquired from private and other government institutions such as Visakhapatnam Steel Plant.
