The natives of Tullur and other villages of the capital region are welcoming the proposal of rail connectivity to new capital Tullur. They are saying that they never dreamed about train facility to their areas from centuries. The new capital is going to give the chance of experiencing train journey.
Rail connectivity from various areas is proposed to new capital Tullur with the high speed railway station in the primary new capital plan. There is no railway track to Tullur. Under the master plan, Tullur is going to switch as the main railway station. The new high speed railway (HSR) line is being proposed from Tullur to Hyderabad connecting Kondapalli railway station. Another HSR would start from Tullur towards Kakinada/Vishakapatnam via Vijayawada bypass, Gannavaram and Eluru.
The present Narasaraopeta-Guntur-Mangalagiri railway line would be extended to Tullur, switching it as HSR. Similarly, another HSR railway route from Vodarevu (Chirala), Bapatla, Tenali, Mangalagiri would be connected to Tullur. New HSR stations are proposed in Tullur, Tenali, Gannavaram and Gudivada. According to primary master plan, new HSR line from Tullur will join Hyderabad-Vijayawada railway line at Rayanapadu and will proceed towards Vishakapatnam, connecting Vijayawada bypass and Gannavaram. Another route would go to Hyderabad connecting Kondapalli.
Natives of Tullur, A. Rama Rao, P. Ganesh and others said that several times train facility to Amaravati was demanded but in vain. They opine that rail and air transportation is a must to develop new capital. As the government is proposing high speed railway lines to the capital, Tullur would swiftly develop in the future. They added that they aspire to travel in train from Tullur in the future.
