Agartala: The North Eastern Frontier Railway (NFR) plans to provide direct train connectivity to the proposed Integrated Check Post (ICP) at Sabroom, a border subdivision of South Tripura district, so that cargo can be carried without interruption. To facilitate.

A team of senior NFR officials recently held a meeting with state government officials, representatives of the Land Ports Authority of India (LPAI) and customs to implement the PM Gati Shakti Cargo Terminal Scheme in the southern border town of the state.
NFR officials briefed about the PM Gati Shakti Cargo Terminal Scheme, which will help in the implementation of these projects in a timely manner and will help them to establish direct link with the railways.

In the discussion, it was planned that railway connectivity would be provided within the ICP for the benefit of all stakeholders and a proposal in this regard would be submitted to the NFR Authority through LPAI as soon as possible, MLA Shankar Rai said. He told PTI on Monday.

NFR officials briefed about the PM Gati Shakti Cargo Terminal Scheme, which will help in the implementation of these projects in a timely manner and will help them to establish direct link with the railways.

Roy, who attended the meeting, added that he had also proposed the construction of a 500-meter road to reduce the distance between the Railways’ Goods Yard and the LPAI’s ICP. Currently the distance between Mall Yard and ICP is 4.5 km. He said that if the rail service was extended to the proposed ICP, there would be no need to use trucks for loading or unloading goods coming from both sides of the border.

The PM Gati Shakti initiative aims at smooth and easy integrated infrastructure projects. Gati Shakti Cargo Terminals will further help in smoothing the movement of railway cargo as well as removing obstacles in the way of transportation for the benefit of last mile customers.

Once implemented, these infrastructure projects will help improve connectivity as well as help the Northeast become a logistics hub, leading to economic transformation.
