of Lumding-Silchar BG section falls in Dima Hasao, but the people would remain deprived of train communication.
Moreover, as the BG line has left out the old MG section from Mahur to Harangajao, at least 260 villages of the district are badly affected socially and economically as the villagers were solely dependent on the MG rail communication.

We are confident of completing the BG conversion works up to Silchar within March 31,” the NF Railway officials maintained.
For the completion of the project, the cooperation of the district administrations and the people is also important. Bandh calls also hamper work. The NF Railway officials appealed to the administrations to ensure that during bandhs, the BG conversion works are not get affected.
The Lumding-Silchar BG conversion project, which commenced in 1996, has drawn strong criticism from several quarters for frequent delays and missed deadlines.

The NFRC Department also exuded the confidence

that seeing the progress of the works, it may be safely predicted that passenger trains would run from April next as the time for the completion of the BG works has been fixed on March 31, 2015. Sources said that 102 locations of broad gauge connection have already been completed. At present, at the Lumding-Badarpur hill section to Silchar, the track connection is going on in full swing. Earth filling of the major portions along this route has also been completed, informed NF Railway sources. Major portions of various works like land acquisition, earth filling, construction of major and minor bridges, road overbridges and road underbridges, station buildings, station platforms, etc., have been completed except some finishing touches.
Sources at the Silchar office of the NF Railway Construction Department told this correspondent that the overall progress of work on the route is quite satisfactory. The construction works of all 17 tunnels in the Lumding-Badarpur hill Section have been completed. Only some problems remain in Tunnel No. 10 and No. 12, which are sought to be resolved by utilising modern machinery and different materials. The work on the railway yard in Silchar and Badarpur has not yet been completed.
In reply to a question from this correspondent, some engineers of the NF Railway Construction Department said that in the BG conversion works, there are some geological problems in the hill section. “But to remove these problems, high-level officials, experts, engineers and employees are trying their level best, applying all sorts of possible steps and by utilising the latest machinery,” they said. The total length of the BG project from Lumding Badarpur hill section to Silchar is 210 km, and the total number of tunnels stands at 17. This national project has a total of 79 major bridges (substructure), and 79 major bridges (super structure), 340 minor bridges, 28 railway stations and four halt stations. Among the 28 railway stations, Lumding, Haflong, Silchar and Badarpur railway stations have been identified as the most important railway stations.
The Badarpur Railway Station building has been constructed with a totally new design. This new station building will be connected with a new road instead of the old Station Road, whose construction is still going on near the Deorail village. This road will be known as the New Station Road of Badarpur, which will be connected with the Badarpur Old Station Road near the Badarpur Hanuman Mandir.
Regarding the setting up of the railway foot overbridge at Badarpur, the department said that the exact location of the foot overbridge or a flyover would be surveyed. After getting the survey report, the authorities will construct the overbridge and if it is done, many shops and buildings will have to be demolished or evicted as per rules and procedure.
It may be stated here that a few days ago, the State BJP vice president as well as ex-MLA of Karimganj, Mission Ranjan Das submitted a memorandum and a map to the Chief Engineer, PK Das, of the Silchar Railway Construction Department regarding the construction of a flyover from the Hanuman Mandir Point to Swahid Bedi, construction of a new station road, postponement of the ongoing construction works of the New Station Road at Badarpur Shyamaprasad Palli. A Railway survey team went to inspect the old approach road for survey recently, but the team could not do its work as the local people and businessmen thwarted their efforts, opposing the construction of a new station road on the old approach road.
There will be three large platforms at the Badarpur Railway Station, where five trains can enter easily. The construction works of two platforms are going on speedily at the Badarpur Railway Junction. A large number of BG signal points have been set up at the Lumding-Badarpur hill section to Silchar.
The NF Railway Construction Department, in a press release, claimed that many milestones have been achieved. Among these are (1) motor trolley inspection from 0 km to 78 km was completed on November 27, 2014; (II) push trolley inspection from 145 km to Badarpur to Silchar was achieved on December 1, 2014; (III) first BG locomotive on the section was run from 0 km to 26 km, on November 6, 2014; (IV) till date about 10 ballasts of rakes from Patharkhola and Pakur have been sent into the section for unloading of ballast in the section. The press release also informed that duomatic machine for packing of track was introduced on and from December 1, 2014, and this machine will improve the geometry of the track making, which is totally fit for passenger and goods operations.
Meanwhile, leaders of different political parties, organisations and the BG Sangram Committee have urged the Government to give stern instructions to various departmental Railway officers and engineers to complete the works efficiently to avoid any sorts of accidents in the area in future.

HAFLONG: The much-awaited Lumding-Silchar broad gauge project will be completed by March 2015, according to Northeast Frontier Railways (NFR) authorities. The mega block will be effective from October 1 this year. Railway officials said security reasons have delayed the project from early completion.
The officials said 90.59% of work has been completed at a cost of Rs 5,185.44 crore. "Hopefully, it will be completed by March, 2015. It took a bit more time due to various reasons, including its geographical locations and law and order problems," said NFR deputy chief engineer (construction) N Brahma.
The

project became technically challenging because of the hilly terrains, sharp curves and steep gradients, said Brahma.
"Several workers have lost their lives for working under unfavourable conditions. Poor road conditions and less number of working days due to rainfall are our major concerns," he said.
The NFR authorities will complete the remaining work by undertaking mega block for six months from October 1. This will stop existing metre gauge train services for the period as tracks would have to be dismantled at 102 locations.
"Though locals would be inconvenienced for the next six months, the mega block is unavoidable under present circumstances to complete the project," said Brahma.
The authorities consulted the Research and Design Standards Organization of Railways, National Institute of Rock Mechanics and National Institute of Technology in Silchar to solve technical complications in tunnels 7 and 10.
Some major millstones, including the country's highest 54m railway bridge over the Dayang river, have been achieved.
The project that was approved in 1996 was supposed to make lives easier for thousands living in the Barak Valley, besides other states in the northeast.
