The Bina-Kota Doubling project is a Super Critical Project being executed by RVNL covering a total Length 288.36 km sanctioned by Railway Board in 2012. The doubling of the rail line between Bina to Guna is part of RVNL’s Bina-Kota Double line project has reached the final stage. CRS Inspection and speed trial has been scheduled on December 23-24 followed which the section will be commissioned. This is a major milestone achievement of this super-critical project. 

Concurrently, RVNL is also undertaking the critical works of doubling of Mahadev Kheri-Malkheri section and track linking works. Mahadev kheri -Malkheri doubling, part of Bina -Kota doubling project.One major, seven minor bridges and 3 RUB have been constructed between Mahadevkhedi to Malkheri.

As a material modification works, the open web girder(45.7m) launch and alongside track linking works are also underway for which necessary blocks are obtained with the girder launch scheduled on 27th December 2021.  This section would clear a major bottle-neck in train movement on the saturated single line section. This section assumes great importance as Kota – Bina double railway line feeds coal to 6-7 Power Plants of Rajasthan & Madhya Pradesh states.

Thus the doubling project would enable great operational ease to the coal rake movements and will save a lot of time in the future.
The timeline of the completion of the Bina Guna double line section is as under: 
• Ashoknagar-Pilighat -25.7Km – December 2019 (following which the Covid pandemic hit the country) 
• Pilighat-Guna-19.5Km-December 2020 
• Ashoknagar-Orr-13 km July 2021 
• Bina-Kanjia-20 km-shortly being commissioned (December 2021) 
• Orr-Kanjia-42km-under fast progress 

RVNL is committed to targeted completion of the balance section on this project so that trains will start operating on the Bina-Guna railway line.
