Another step towards strengthening rail connectivity in Northeast; Goods train started running in the newly commissioned Gauripur - Abhayapuri BG section

In another step towards providing better rail connectivity to N E Region, Alipurduar Division of N. F. Railway has started operation of goods train through the newly constructed New Coochbehar – Gauripur – Abhayapuri - Goalpara section, which is a part of the New Maynaguri – Jogighopa new line (226.83 km) project.

A rake carrying 2652 tonnes of milk products, pulses, salt and plastic goods loaded from Linch, Gujarat has been transported to Azara near Guwahati through this route. Again o­n 19th January, 2022 a cement loaded rake for Guwahati carrying 2,579 tonnes of cement has been transported through this new route.

CRS (Commissioner of Railway Safety) had earlier granted authorization for operations of trains through Bilasipara - Abhayapuri (47.65 kms) section with a maximum permissible speed of 90 kmph. By commissioning of section from Bilasipara to Abhayapuri, train services can now run from Gauripur to Abhayapuri covering Dhubri and Bongaigaon districts of Assam.

Newly commissioned Gauripur - Abhayapuri route will provide better connectivity and access to the people of this region in Northeast. Running of goods train in new BG section will also help in reducing congestion and faster movement of goods train in other congested section.
