The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by the Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi, has given its approval to construct a 3rd railway line between Allahabad - Mughalsarai with an estimated cost of INR 2649.44 crore. The project will be completed by 2023-24 and will be executed by Construction Organization of North Central. The project will help cope up with the future traffic and remove capacity constraints. At present number of passenger and goods trains in this section are far more than its capacity, resulting in heavy detention to trains. This project will enhance capacity, reduce detention and cater for future growth of traffic. Construction of approved third Line between Allahabad and Mughalsarai will also ease traffic congestion at Chheoki, Naini and improve the punctuality of goods and passenger trains on vital route connecting National capital.

Meanwhile, this project will also generate direct employment during construction for about 36 lakh man days.
