Aizawl: NFR Mizoram project can change face of state’s connectivity

Indian Railways is significantly contributing towards the transformation of the northeastern states by executing several new projects.

Constructing new railway lines to connect all the state capitals of the northeastern region is going on under capital connectivity projects. The Bairabi-Sairang New Line Railway Project to connect Mizoram to the rest of the country is one such project that is likely to be completed soon.

Once completed, this will mark the dawn of a new era in terms of communication and commerce, in the northeastern region of the country, especially Mizoram. The project aims to create an additional 51.38 km of railway track in the North East.

NF Railway has completed the work of construction of the tallest pier of the project i.e Pier P - 4 of bridge no. 196 in the approach of Sairang station.

Due to topographical constraints, this pier is located within the centre of a river stream. Construction of the foundation of this pier within the running stream was a big challenge which has been accomplished by diverting the stream and deploying the extra piling machines. The pier is designed in such a unique way that the pile cap is provided with four openings to allow the water to pass through it. With the completion of this pier, one of the most critical parts of the project has been accomplished.

Though there are many challenges in the execution of this project, NFR is making all efforts to fulfil its commitment. Work at all project sites is going on even at night shift.
