By Anand Singh New Delhi/Patna, March 3 : Bringing glad tidings to the people of Nirmali town in Bihar’s Supaul district, train services will soon become a reality after a gap of 87 years since the railway track was destroyed in an earthquake in 1934, officials said on Wednesday.
East Central Railway (ECR) spokesperson Rajesh Kumar told IANS: “On September 18 last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had dedicated to the people the Kosi Mahasetu and other rail projects in Bihar.” He said the Samastipur-Darbhanga-Sakri-Jhanjharpur route had a metre-gauge railway line, and then a gauge conversion work was taken up under the uni-gauge programme of Indian Railways.
Kumar added that the work of gauge conversion from Darbhanga to Jainagar via Sakri has been completed long back.
“The gauge conversion work on the Sakri-Jhanjharpur-Nirmali route is under progress,” he said.
The ECR spokesperson further said that the broad-gauge conversion between Sakri and Jhanjharpur is being completed and trains were running up to Jhanjharpur prior to the lockdown situation.
