Talking to TOI, chief public relations officer (CPRO) of West Central Railway Surendra Yadav said, "Katni grade separator is expected to cost around Rs 600 crore. Earlier, it was part of the Katni-Singrauli doubling project pegged at Rs 7,000 crore. We sent a separate proposal to Railway Board which has now received cabinet nod. Once complete, it would be the longest rail bridge among the 16 railway zones of the country."
