Level crossings to be removed along DFC

In order to make freight movement seamless on the Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC), Railways will eliminate 27 level crossings along the 625 km long route between Rewari and Iqbalgarh. While 22 road over-bridges (ROBs) and road under-bridges (RUBs) will come up in Rajasthan, five will be constructed in Haryana to do away with level crossings in the 625 km route, which is part of Western DFC.

DFCC had recently awarded a contract of approximately Rs 6,700 crore to an inter-¡national consortium of Sojitz-L&T for constructing 625 km long corridor between Rewari to Ikbalgarh. DFC is to be commissioned without any level crossings along the route to make it faster and seamless movement of freight trains. The construction of the ROB and RUB has to be shared equally between state government and railways.
