This is a proposed route for many years. Just like Lonavla many people travel from Daund to Pune City for work. This route was proposed for the convenience of people of Daund and the villages on this route. However many years have passed since this proposal but this service does not operate even today. Instead of suburban trains four shuttle trains operate on this route between Pune and Daund and through trains like Pune-Manmad passenger, Pune-Nizamabad passenger and two shuttle trains between Pune to Solapur are useful for people on this route to access Pune City. From March 2017 three DEMU have started to operate to Daund from Pune and viz. Pune - Baramati DEMU also pass from this section.[4] There is one passenger and one DEMU from Pune to Baramati and Pune - Baramati passenger. Two set of DEMU operate on Daund - Baramati Section.

  • Extension of existing platforms to accommodate 24 bogie trains.
