PM Modi Inaugurates Amrit Bharat and Vande Bharat Trains, Railway Projects, and Ayodhya Airport

Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off two new Amrit Bharat trains and six Vande Bharat trains from Ayodhya Dham Station on Saturday. The Amrit Bharat trains include Darbhanga-Ayodhya-Anand Vihar Terminal Amrit Bharat Express and Malda Town-Sir M. Visvesvaraya Terminus (Bengaluru) Amrit Bharat Express.

The Vande Bharat trains inaugurated are Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Katra-New Delhi Vande Bharat Express, Amritsar-Delhi Vande Bharat Express, Coimbatore-Bangalore Cantt Vande Bharat Express, Mangalore-Madgaon Vande Bharat Express, Jalna-Mumbai Vande Bharat Express, and Ayodhya-Anand Vihar Terminal Vande Bharat Express.

Additionally, Prime Minister Modi dedicated three railway projects worth Rs 2300 crore to enhance rail infrastructure in the region. These projects include the Rooma Chakeri-Chanderi third line project, Jaunpur-Tulsi Nagar, Akbarpur-Ayodhya, Sohawal-Patranga, and Safdarganj-Rasauli sections of the Jaunpur-Ayodhya-Barabanki doubling project, and the doubling and electrification project of the Malhaur-Daliganj railway section.

PM Modi also inaugurated Maharishi Valmiki International Airport Ayodhya Dham in its Phase 1, developed at a cost of over Rs 1450 crore. The airport’s terminal building, covering an area of 6500 sqm, is designed to accommodate around 10 lakh passengers annually. The terminal’s facade reflects the temple architecture of the upcoming Shri Ram Mandir of Ayodhya, adorned with local art, paintings, and murals depicting the life of Bhagwan Shri Ram.

The Ayodhya Airport’s terminal building incorporates sustainability features like an insulated roofing system, LED lighting, rainwater harvesting, landscaping with fountains, a water treatment plant, a sewage treatment plant, a solar power plant, and more, aiming for a GRIHA 5-star rating.

This new airport is expected to enhance connectivity, stimulate tourism and business activities, and create employment opportunities in the region. Prime Minister Modi’s vision for Ayodhya includes developing modern infrastructure, improving connectivity, and upgrading civic facilities while preserving the city’s rich history and heritage. Several foundation stones for additional projects were laid, contributing to the beautification and improvement of civic amenities in and around the temple town.
