Good News - Direct train between Lucknow and Rajasthan Soon

Soon the travelers interested in traveling from Lucknow to Rajasthan will get a direct train to Alwar from Lucknow. This is going to get possible due to railway's plan to extend the current trains running between Mathura and Lucknow-Patna up to Alwar stations.

As of now the people looking to travel to Alwar from Lucknow or from Lucknow to Alwar have to first reach either Jaipur or Delhi, the two most important railway stations in northern India, and then change trains to reach their destinations.

The DRM (Divisional Railway Manager) of North Central Railway (Agra) - Mr. Prabhash Kumar has said that more facilities will be provided for railway users passing through Alwar-Mathura railway stations in future. The electrification is already done on this railway route. As of now only one train is being chugged by the electric locomotive but soon all the trains will be pulled by the electric locos instead of the diesel engines which are pulling the trains at present. This will also increase the average speed of the trains running through this section. At present the speed of section is set at 120 kph while the trains are allowed a max speed of  100 kph only.

Another good news is that the North-Central railway is making 5 new railway stations between Alwar-Mathura. The construction work has already begun. Actually 6 stations were proposed on this route out of which one railway station at Mora near Mathura has already completed in year 2011.

Now stations will be build at Radha Kund, Barsana, Bahaj, Jhareda, and Gazi Ka locations. The Radha Kund station will be particularly useful for those going to pilgrimage of govardhan parvat parikrama. Also the residents of Ranjitnagar, transport nagar, shivaji park, hasan khan mewat nagar, and budh vihar colonies will also be benefited from the constructions of new railway stations.
