A meeting was held last month to discuss progress on the freight corridor planned for Northern India. Work should begin shortly in the territory of North Central Railway from Mughalsarai to Khurja. Tendering process for the work of stretch from Bhaupur to Khurja has already been initiated.
Land acquisition between Mughalsarai-Bhaupur is continuing at a fast pace and compensation for nearly 70% of the land has been paid. The total length of the freight corridor from Mughalsarai to Dadri is about 780 km.
