Indian Railways is working in full swing to establish Charlapalli Railway Station in Telangana as a satellite coaching terminal. This ambitious project will aid high traffic demand by improving the connectivity of the twin cities – Hyderabad and Secunderabad. The station falls under the administrative jurisdiction of South Central Railway’s Secunderabad Division.
Once completed, the Charlapalli Railway station will become the fourth central passenger terminal in the twin cities. The zonal railway is developing this new terminal with modern facilities on par with airports.
The Railway Board had sanctioned a budget of Rs 221 crores for the development of Charlapalli Railway station as an alternate coaching terminal. In the Union Budget 2023-24, the national transporter has allocated Rs 82 crores for the Charlapalli satellite terminal development.
The South Central Railway has already awarded the tender for the execution of Phase 1 and II works. The work is targeted to be completed by the end of this year. The station also comes under MMTS Phase – II project and several facilities are coming up as part of it also. It has also been proposed to build an “All Weather covered shed” for pit lines at Charlapalli. For this, the zonal railway has sent a proposal to the Railway Board for sanction.
