The MP, who met the South Central Railway (SCR) General Manager Vinod Kumar Yadav in Hyderabad on Friday, in a statement said that track work between Manoharabad and Gajwel will be completed by December. The tender process for the stretch between Kothapally and Boinpally will be completed in April. Works on railway bridge across Manair river near Sircilla will be launched very soon, the MP said.
