After ushering in a new era of development in the costal belt of Maharashtra, Konkan Railway (KR) is all set to replicate the same in Jammu and Kashmir as they are working on the ambitious project to build a rail link between Katra and Dharam. This part is a section of the larger 170-km rail route connecting Udhampur to Quazigund.

Full article here.

Because of the roads, the government schemes have started reaching locals. We are happy that the approach road meant to take our machinery to the proposed rail line is being utilised by the locals.
The current importance of Srinagar will decrease as it will also get decongested. People will prefer to stay in other cities too
“The travel time will come down significantly. It will take only 2.5 to 3 hours to reach Srinagar from Jammu,”
Good news or bad news.

The same way, the importance of Jammu would also decrease. Maximum of public use Jammu as connecting place for Katra and Valley. Once the train starts reaching Katra, most of them would reach Katra directly by train.
