From Valmikinagar  upto Muzaffarpur, work on doubling is already going on. This proposed doubling project with the cost of Rs. 1120 Crore is expected to improve the logistics efficiency significantly.

Katihar - Mukuria and Katihar - Kumedpur are extremely busy sections. Currently  this is single line and it is a Rajdhani train route. This is important link to connect  Northeast and also Howrah. Doubling of these sections will significantly help     movement of cargo from Kolkata Port to Virat Nagar. The cost of this project is Rs.942   Crore.
