Refer to blog post /blog/post/4259469 and my blog post /blog/post/3654115
I walked on ganga railway bridge (newly made one for doubling of Prayag-Phaphamau line) yesterday from south end (prg side) to north end (pfm side). I was surprised that from 04th March when kumbh mela ended, to 02 April, in less than one month, the remaining 04 beams is completed. Very fast work as 25 beams took more than two years. Now all 29 beams completed. Only gaps between some beams and side barriers at some places remains to be completed on the bridge. See pictures
1: View of bridge from below (east side). See iron support for construction of last beam being removed.

Railway never wants to finish work in time. Prg Station se Rambag ROB ke 200 metres west tak double line daal di gayi thi teen mahine pahle hi.
But they are not starting work from this place to Ald station east place where Ald-Nyn NCR, Ald-Aly NER and Ald-Prg NR line meets.
This remaining work is only 400 metres out of which 300 metres already has a old line (military siding) of british era, whose sleepers have entered/pressed in soil and tracks have rusted. The railway just have to replace sleepers and tracks
in this 300 metres and no soil levelling required. Only 100 metres require clearing of jungle, soil levelling and track laying.
There is no problem of land also in this 400 metres as railway quarters are there adjacent to it and space for laying two more lines is there. The only small problem, which contractors may be pretending is presence of two 25kv wires coming perpendicular from SSP to feed the Ald-Prg section (single wali present line).
Pic 1: Rambagh ROB and Ald-Prg line in view. The left new line for doubling is laid upto here and 400 metres left for laying starts from here to Ald east yard end.
Pic 2: 90% pole erected for electrification of Ald-Prg double line.
Pic 3: One of the last poles being erected for the electrification of the dbl line.
