New Railway Station is going to develop in Bokaro.
BOKARO Steel City will soon get a second railway station close to Sector-9 area. Adra RAILWAY Division under South Eastern Railway in Bokaro district is all set to develop Ispat Nagar Station as a new stoppage for the passenger.
Currently, only goods train run on the Ispat Nagar station route. Developing Ispat Nagar Station, railway authorities said, will be helpful to local passengers who travel on Bhojudih-Adra and Howrah route. The existing Bokaro railway station is about nine kilometres away from the city.And after the closure of Chandrapura -Dhanbad route and by the cancellation of 19 trains, the railway authorities are forced to work on a plan to develop to Ispat Nagar railway station. By the closure of the stations between the Dhanbad- Chandrapura route, the passengers of that station are in great trouble. They have to travel a long route due to that.
“The railway tracks installed in Ispat Nagar station is presently fit for goods trains only. They have begun the process to upgrade the railway tracks, making it fit for passenger trains. Development of Ispat Nagar Station route will be an alternative to Chandil route. Local trains running on the Howrah route can be diverted through Ispat Nagar as per the need.
The senior manager added that once the railway tracks are enhanced, the route from N Cabin- Ispat Nagar Station- Chas- Banghdih-Telgadia- Bhojudih- Shivbabudih will be open for passenger trains. Meanwhile, railways have begun improving basic amenities in smaller stations like Radhagaon, Pundag and Tupkadih. This project was started 2years ago and still on progress.
