Nizamabad Junction Railway Station is an A-Category[3] railway station which serves the city of Nizamabad, Telangana, India. It is a major station on Secunderabad-Manmad railway line, also serving as the junction point for Secunderabad, Peddapalli, Jankampet/Mudkhed Junctions. The station falls under Hyderabad railway division of South Central Railway which is one of the zones of Indian Railways. Due to overgrowth on the western side of the city, the Jankampet Junction railway station on west corridor falls under Nizamabad.

History[edit]

The Nizam of Hyderabad ruled over the Deccan region during 18th century and under his reign the railway line between Secundrabad and Manmad was constructed in the year 1905.[4]The railway station was named after then ruler of the Nizam state Nizam-ul-Mulk as Nizamabad.

On 30 June 2004 the SCR operated the last metre gauge train on the NizamabadManoharabad line[5] bringing to an end the metre gauge services which started in the 1930s on the Secunderabad–Manmad line of the Nizam's State Railways (formerly Hyderabad-Godavari Valley Railways)

Line and location[edit]

Nizamabad railway station is a junction connecting northern, southern and western India lines,[6] it is situated on Secunderabad-Manmad railway line and is also the convergence station for Peddapalli-Karimnagar-Nizamabad line via Armoor [7] which was inaugurated on 25th March 2017 with a DEMU service between Nizamabad and Karimnagar. This section is a part of Delhi-Chennai line which is known as Grand Trunk Route, this 180 km long line also reduced the distance the between major Indian cities such as Hyderabad-New Delhi, Mumbai-Karimnagar, Nizamabad-Warangal.

Jankampet Jn. is another station located in western part of the city. This station also lies on Secunderabad-Manmad railway line and acts as the junction point for Jankampet-Bodhan railway line in Nizamabad district. Indian Railways also has plans for extending the railway line from Bodhan to Latur Road which in turn will pave way for Nizamabad to have direct connectivity to Latur, Gulbarga, solapur, Miraj many other cities of Maharashtra which are located in neighbouring state of Maharashtra.

Amenities[edit]

The Zonal Railway has identified the station for development of Multi Functional Complex adjoining to the Station Building.[8]

The Proposed Multi Functional Complex will provide state of the art facilities to the passengers and public at large which shall include services like, Food Courts, Quick Service Restaurants, Cloak Rooms, Fully Operational Hotel with Banquet Hall, Convenient Stores, Shops, Medical outlets, State of the Art, fully air conditioned Dormitories and many other services.[9]

The facility is getting developed on PPP basis and the bidding process is over and the private concessionaire has been appointed for the project. Once operational the services offered to the passengers will be unparalleled in the Zone, the proposed Multi Functional Complex will change the face of Nizamabad Railway Station and will impact the overall development of the city.
