Balangir (BLGR): Construction works on a 19-km stretch of the 289-km-long Khurda-Balangir railway line to link coastal Odisha with the western region of the state, would begin from Balangir side of Sambalpur Division on East Coast Railway in December. The railway line is a long awaited one, as the survey for it was done before Independence in 1945, but work on the project started only in 2007.
East Coast Railway (ECoR) General Manager Rajiv Vishnoi today said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, who chaired the first apex committee meeting on the railway project, has asked the Railways to complete the project within six years, that is by December 15, 2021.
19-km section spans Balangir to Bhuinsapalli. Indian Railways had on July 20 signed an agreement with the Odisha government for completion of the Khurda-Balangir rail route.
As per the agreement, Odisha government has committed to finance 50 per cent of the expenditure to be incurred for the construction of 176 km-long rail route from Balangir to Daspalla in Nayagarh district.
The project cost of the route was estimated to be Rs 2,000 crore of which the state would provide Rs 1,000 crore, besides free-of-cost land worth Rs 350 crore.
The state government has appointed land acquisition officers in Boudh, Balangir and Nayagarh districts, Odisha’s Commerce and Transport Minister Ramesh Chandra Majhi said.
The minister said the total 289 km-long route has been divided into three phases – Khurda-Begunia (36 km), Begunia -Daspalla (76 km) and Daspalla-Balangir (176 km). While Khurda-Begunia line work was complete, the line work from Begunia to Rajsunakhala is also over and work on the remaining was going on there.
The minister said as per the ECoR, the rail track network construction work from Begunia to Nayagarh would be completed by 2017.

Balangir (BLGR): The successful trial run of trains in a stretch of 32-km on Khurda Road-Balangir line on August 31 last year had raised hopes of completion of the project soon. But, the project continues to hang fire with land acquisition posing as a major hurdle.
The railway line which will pass through Khurda, Nayagarh, Boudh, Sonepur and Balangir districts would require construction of 11 tunnels measuring 6.3 km, around 435 bridges including a 660-metre bridge over river Tel besides culverts and other constructions.
Though the State Government had assured the Centre of
providing the land free of cost, the acquisition process for the 289-km rail line has hit a road block.
As yet, only land for laying train tracks on 22 kms has been acquired in Balangir district while not a single inch of land has been acquired in Boudh district which has a lion’s share of 122 kms. However, in neighbouring Nayagarh district, land has been acquired from Raj Sunakhala to Nayagarh.
After connecting Khurda Road with Begunia in the first phase, work on the 46-km stretch to Raj Sunakhala was to be completed by March 31 this year and the 66-km stretch till Nayagarh has 2015-16 financial year deadline. But meeting the deadline now seems to be remote considering the slow pace of work.
As per official reports, the budget of the project which was estimated at `4.98 crore after the initial survey has shot up to a staggering `2,000 crore as it witnessed low budgetary provisions in Central Budgets and issues of land acquisition.
The rail link was first surveyed in 1945 by the then Bengal-Nagpur Railway (BNR) administration which found the route important as it connected most backward undivided districts of Balangir, Kalahandi, Koraput and Phulbani with Bhubaneswar. Smaller towns such as Daspalla, Banigochha, Manipur and Boudh were also part of the line.
