Four South Asian countries to get linked with new railways

first_imgAccording to the Ministry of Indian Railways, a series of new cross-border railways are being planned to connect India with Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh and a series of studies have already been conducted into the new lines.The most challenging of these projects would be to Bhutan as the country does not currently have any railway lines. But according to the Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR), the feasibility studies have already been conducted for the project. Bhutan borders the Indian states of Sikkim, West Bengal, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.For Nepal, work is already underway on an 18.6 km cross-border railway line connecting the Indian city of Jogbani, in the state of Bihar, with the Nepalese city of Biratnagar.The most extensive connectivity is likely to be between India and Bangladesh. NFP is planning a new cross-border link to Bangladesh from Agartala. This will form part of the Trans-Asian Railway network and will significantly reduce the overland travelling time between northeast India and the rest of the country.last_img read more
