Experiences of Rajasthan - Transport
Air Links :
Indian Airlines and private air taxi operators - offer regular fights to New Delhi and Bombay from Rajasthan. In addition to Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur are also air linked. Jaisalmer and Kota are likely to be air linked soon. Jaipur, Udaipur, Bikaner, Kota are Jaisalmer are included in the list of cities open to private air taxi operations.
The State has an air cargo complex at Jaipur. A similar facility has been developed at Jodhpur and Udaipur. Jaipur airport is expected to be developed as an international airport by the end of the decade.
Rail Links :
All major towns and most district headquarters in the State have rail links for both passenger and goods traffic.
At present, most destinations in the State are served by metre gauge railway, while the majority of the rail network in North and West India is broad gauge.
However a major track renewal programme to convert existing metre gauge routes to broad-gauge is under implementation. This would take the BG network in Rajasthan upto 55% as against the present 21.5%. Large part of the broad-gauge conversion work is now complete. Jaipur now had direct broad-gauge connection to Delhi through Rewari. Jaipur and Sawai-Madhopur have already been linked on Broad-Gauge under this programme thereby connecting it to Bombay through Kota. Track renewal from Phulera-Degana -Merta Road -Jodhpur is also complete. Similarly the track from Kolayat-Lalgarh-Bikaner-Merta is also now on broad-gauge. Alwar-Mathura route is also converted.
On completion of the work, Jaisalmer would also be brought on the broad-gauge network. The Marwar-Ahmedabad route will also be broad-gauge thus bringing Jaipur on the prestigious Delhi-Ahmedabad route.
The total Road Mileage in Rajasthan is 2846 km of National Highway and around 58680 km of State Roads and Rural links roads. Four national highway i.e. No.8 (Delhi-Ahmedabad), No. 11 (Agra-Bikaner) No.15 (Bhatinda-Kandla) and No.12 (Jaipur-Bhopal) pass through Rajasthan. Roads provide the most convenient mode of travel between Delhi and various industrial locations in eastern Rajasthan, most of which are 1-3 hours of comfortable road journey from Delhi.
All district and subdivisional towns have direct bus service to Jaipur. Jaipur and other major towns are connected to each other and to Delhi and Ahmedabad (largest city in neighbouring Gujarat) by deluxe bus services.
