Call to improve rail facilities at Dibrugarh

By STAFF CORRESPONDENT

DIBRUGARH, Oct 23 � Local MLA Prasanta Phukan has sought the intervention of the Railway Minister to stay the proposed shifting of train services from Dibrugarh Town Railway Station to the newly constructed Dibrugarh Railway Station at Banipur, stating that the road leading to the new railway station from the city was devoid of transport facilities and that the link roads were not safe and usable.

The MLA dashed a memorandum to Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee through the Deputy Commissioner today, urging upon her to take urgent steps to start a 24-hour transport service from Dibrugarh Town to Banipur for carrying of passengers to and fro.

Phukan has also asked Railway Minister to provide local trains to and fro from Dibrugarh Town Railway station to New Dibrugarh Railway station before and after an hour of departure and arrival of

different trains at new Dibrugarh Railway station at Banipur and further urged upon the ministry to erect concrete usable link roads with adequate street lights in the New Dibrugarh Railway station at Banipur and its connecting roads.

Phukan believes that if transport services are provided, local trains are made to run and link roads were mettalled as per standards, passengers will not have problem while reaching the new railway station or while leaving the station.

The MLA, who also earlier called upon the NF Railway authorities to take necessary steps, asked the Railway Minister to meet the three demands for the greater interest of railway passengers.

Through the memorandum, the MLA also expressed regret that the Dibrugarh Railway Station, formerly known as Reehabari Railway Station, was not considered as the heritage railway station despite being the oldest railway station in the Northeast. Moreover, the railway track from Dibrugarh to Dikom was the second railway track in the country, the MLA pointed out.

Phukan called upon the Railway Minister to consider the facts and declare Dibrugarh railway station as one of the heritage stations of the country.
