Engineering Surveys and Construction of New Lines

Introduction

The construction of a new railway line is a capital-intensive project and each kilometre of a new railway line costs in the range of Rs 6 to 10 million depending upon the topography of the area, the standard of construction, and such other features. It is, therefore, natural that a lot of thought be given when making a final decision as to whether a new railway line is at all necessary or not.
