Indian Railways’ Dimapur station to get additional freight complex


Indian Railways’ Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) of the Lumding Division, Niraj Kumar, on Friday unveiled a plague for the construction of an additional freight station (goods yard) at the Dimapur Railway Station.

“Dimapur is an important town connecting all of Nagaland and outside, and is also the most important goods yards of Lumding division. Therefore, the North East Frontier Railways (NFR) is adding another goods handling facility to increase flexibility,” Kumar said.

Kumar also announced the long-awaited broadening and construction of the platform shed between railway track 2 and 3 by extending track 3 further.

It may be recalled that former Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi had during his visit to the Dimapur station in 2011, directed department officials to construct a platform shed on the remaining two platforms. However, this couldn’t be materialized as both platforms were said to be too narrow to accommodate the sheds. More info
