The 25-year old railway corporation, on the occasion of its silver jubilee, has decided to go for double track as well as electrification of the whole route from Roha in Maharashtra to Thokur in Karnataka.

The KRCL is also expanding its reach by connecting to Jaigad Port as well as to hinterlands of Chiplun-Karad rail Link.
