In this awarded stretch, GMR’s EPC Team has successfully completed 417 kilometer- of track laying in Contract Package-201 & 202 i.e. between New Bhaupur to DDY by May 2023. Presently more than 50 pairs of goods trains are already running on the DFCC Track from Bhaupur to Deen Dayal Upadhyaya junction. Despite several challenges on the ground on account of construction material availability, Pandemic and tough weather conditions etc, GMR’s committed team stayed on course to build this project.
