As the ongoing projects under Sambalpur Railway Division is causing temporary inconvenience to people, railway authorities have appealed to citizens to bear with the adjustments as these are being undertaken keeping in mind the greater public interest.
According to an East Coast Railway (ECoR) statement, thoroughfare on 1-8 Km stretch Sambalpur Road Station-Khetrajpur is affected due to the ongoing Sambalpur-Talcher doubling work. There seems to be no alternative solution but to close the Sambalpur Road station for developmental works in Sambalpur area, ECoR sources said.
If the project execution continues to be obstructed, Indian Railways will be forced to drop the project which will seriously affect the development of the area. Doubling work, throughput and overall speed and efficiency of trains will be seriously affected, it added while appealing the public to be supportive for the larger interest of Sambalpur area.
Notably, Railways have taken up different developmental works in Sambalpur area which includes Jharsuguda-Sambalpur-Titilagarh Doubling, Sambalpur-Talcher doubling, Development of Sambalpur and Sambalpur City Stations, and setting up of Wagon POH workshop.
