Texmaco Rail and Engineering on Wednesday said it has won a Rs 200-crore contract to construct a rail line between Agartala in India and Akhaura in Bangladesh. “Adventz Group’s Texmaco Rail & Engineering Ltd, India’s total rail solution provider, has been awarded a project (of about Rs 200 crore) to construct the 45-km-dual-gauge line between Agartala in Tripura and Akhaura, a sub-district of Chittagong in Bangladesh,” the company said in a statement.
It said, the project is scheduled to be completed in 18 months and will lend full connectivity from east to west of Bangladesh, apart from enabling trade relations and establishing people-to-people connect between the two neighbours.
Once completed, the railway link is expected to cut the distance between Agartala and Kolkata besides enhancing India’s access to Chittagong port. Read More
