East Coast Railway (ECoR) general manager Manoj Sharma inspected the under construction rail line section between Sunakhani and Khamar of ongoing Talcher-Bimalagarh rail line project on Tuesday.
Senior officials from ECoR headquarters and divisional railway manager, Khurda Road Division Rinkesh Roy were also present during the inspection.
During the inspection, Sharma reviewed the infrastructure works and advised officials to take necessary steps to ensure that the works should be completed within the target period.
Construction of the 150 km long Talcher-Bimalagarh rail line project lies in remote areas.
While, 17.62 km stretch has already been completed between Talcher and Sunakhani, 16.31 km between Sunakhani-Samal-Parabil will soon be completed.
The delay in acquisition of land and presence of many land related disputes and court cases were causing delay. Sharma also inspected the railway sidings at Talcher for better traffic movement and also to provide benefit to the stakeholders and industries.
Reviewing the traffic facility works, he instructed concerned officials to ensure facilities for hassle-free traffic movement in this area.
