Big Indian Railways boost for Uttar Pradesh! The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) has today approved the constriction of an 81.17 kilometres long new railway line between Sahjanwa and Dohrighat in Uttar Pradesh.
The railway project will be carried out by the Construction Organization of North Eastern Railway at a cost of Rs 1,319.75 crore. It is being said that the project will be completed by 2023-24. According to a PIB release, the project area is economically backward, densely populated as well as deficient in road transport facilities.
With the establishment of this new Indian Railways line, people of the area will get the much-needed railway facility and connectivity boost. Apart from providing railway connectivity, the project will also help in the growth of small scale industries in the area.
According to Piyush Goyal-led Railway Ministry, the new railway line project will also generate direct employment during the construction period for around 19.48 lakh man days. Read More
