Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will dedicate to the nation the 306 Km New Rewari - New Madar Section of  the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (WDFC) o­n 7th January 2021 at 11 AM via video conferencing. Prime Minister will also flag off the world's first Double Stack Long Haul 1.5 Km long Container Train hauled by electric traction from New Ateli -New Kishangarh during the event. Governors and Chief Ministers of Rajasthan and Haryana along with Union Minister Shri Piyush Goyal will also be present at the occasion.

New Rewari - New Madar Section of WDFC

The New Rewari - New Madar section of the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor is situated in Haryana (approx. 79 Km, in Mahendragarh and Rewari districts) and Rajasthan (approx. 227 Km, in Jaipur, Ajmer, Sikar, Nagaur and Alwar districts). It consists of nine newly built DFC stations  in which six are crossing stations viz. New Dabla, New Bhagega, New Sri Madhopur, New Pachar Malikpur, New Sakun and New Kishangarh while the other three  in New Rewari, New Ateli and New Phulera are junction stations.

The opening of this stretch will benefit various industries in Rewari – Manesar, Narnaul, Phulera and Kishangarh areas of Rajasthan & Haryana and will also enable better  usage of the container depot of CONCOR at Kathuwas. This section will also ensure seamless connectivity with the western ports of Kandla, Pipavav, Mundhra, and Dahej situated in Gujarat.

With the inauguration of this section, seamless connectivity between the WDFC and EDFC will be achieved. Earlier the 351-km New Bhaupur- New Khurja section of the EDFC  was dedicated to the nation by the Prime Minister o­n 29th December 2020.

Double Stack Long Haul Container Train Operation

Double Stack Long Haul Container Train Operation will have an enhanced axle load of 25 tons.  It has been designed for DFCCIL by RDSO’s wagon department. Trial runs of BLCS-A and BLCS-B wagon prototypes have been completed. The design will maximize capacity utilization and uniform distributed and point loading. These wagons o­n a long-haul double stack container train o­n the WDFC can carry four times in terms of container units compared to the current traffic o­n Indian Railways.

DFCCIL will run freight trains at the maximum speed of 100 km/per hour as against the current maximum speed of 75 kmph o­n Indian Railway tracks whereas the average speed of freight trains will also be increased from existing speed of 26 kmph o­n Indian Railways lines to 70 kmph o­n DFC.
