N. F. Railway has recently commissioned the newly developed goods circulating area at Mirza yard near Mirza Railway station in line with New Bongaigaon – Goalpara Town – Kamakhya doubling project. The new circulating area is likely to facilitate a smooth unhampered flow of the road traffic in the vicinity of the station building and goods shed due to ease of loading/unloading.
The Engineering Plan was approved with provision of a goods siding along with goods circulating area of 825m x 25m. The work of goods circulating area along with an approach road of 950m to connect the goods circulation area from main road of Mirza - Chandubi was started in Jan’2021 and completed in Oct’2022 at a cost of around 10.5 Crore. A labour rest room with basic amenities has also been developed alongside the goods circulating area. The existing 5(Five) line yard has been remodeled into 7(Seven) line yard and commissioned on 27 Dec’2022.
With the development of circulating goods yard at Mirza the traffic load at New Guwahati yard will be reduced to a great extent. Loading and unloading at Mirza yard will ease the traffic congestion towards Guwahati city. Traders can directly take delivery of the goods without getting stuck in city traffic. Development of the circulating area at Mirza station will also help commuters and traders to supply the goods to the neighboring states like Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh.
