NFR gears up restoration work in Dima Hasao Despite rainfall acting as barrier in the work process

NFR gears up restoration work in Dima Hasao

Despite rainfall acting as barrier in the work process                                                          

Maligaon, 13th June, 2022:

The situation in Dima Hasao is gradually returning to normalcy. Restoration work of the railways continues in full swing. In the beginning of 2nd week of May, due to heavy torrential rains and massive landslides, around 85 Kms of railway track in the Lumding – Badarpur hill section of Lumding division were badly affected. Breaches had occurred at more than 61 locations in this section, resulting disruption of the rail communication to the hilly states of Tripura, Mizoram, Manipur and parts of Assam. In total, restoration works at 46 locations have already been completed and work at other 15 critical locations is going o­n in full vigour.

During mid of May, 2022, Dima Hasao witnessed more than the normal rainfall. In locations like Maibong, Mahur, New Haflong, Jatinga Lampur, New Harangajao and Damcherra the exaggerated downpour resulted in landslips, flash floods and washouts causing the disruption. N.F. Railway is targeting speedy restoration work in the entire hill section with an aim to restart services by 10th July, 2022. The weather in this region is still fierce, but the intensity of rainfall has lessened. Even in such weather, thousands of workers and hundreds of machines are working day and night in this area under the supervision of Railway officials. The entire stretch from Badarpur to Jatinga Lumpur has already been restored.

N.F. Railway authorities with co-ordination and co-operation of different organisations have geared up for early restoration to bring the hill section’s railway connectivity back o­n track. Officials of the Northeast Frontier Railway are working relentlessly to restore communication as early as possible for the affected population of the cut-off region.
