(Photo for representation) These four ‘priority’ lines are part of the 14 strategic lines which were identified for development in November 2010. Once constructed, the Bilaspur-Manali-Leh corridor will be the highest railway line in the world, surpassing China’s Qinghai-Tibet railway. These four ‘priority’ lines are part of the 14 strategic lines which were identified for development in November 2010, among the 28 railway lines in border areas approved ‘in principle’ by the Defence Minister in January 2010. Preliminary survey for 10 of the 14 lines was completed, but no further work was done even though these rail lines were declared national projects.
