Union Minister for Railways, Suresh Prabhu has laid the foundation stone for the construction of a 4-km Elevated Rail Line on the Rohtak-Gohana stretch in Haryana under the Delhi Division of Northern Railways. Prabhu stated that the Indian Railways would continue its efforts to extend greater connectivity in the State. This project is envisaged to provide road-user safety whilst easing life of residents of Rohtak. The Railways has envisaged a modernised India through the various development projects and has constantly progressed towards that goal through new thrusts and initiatives. Constructing elevated corridors will save the hassles of land acquisition that can delay a project. An elevated corridor will be financially more viable compared to the compensation amount to be given to the land owners. Also, it will ensure speedy execution of the project. A number of foreign countries have preferred elevated rail corridors. This not only ensures speedy execution of work but also saves human lives. Globally, a majority of high-speed trains have been operating on elevated corridors. Countries like Japan, France and Germany have developed elevated corridors for their high-speed trains.
