Condition of Dibrugarh Station road rued


DIBRUGARH, Jan 23 � The district committee of the Assam Rail Passengers� Association met the Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) of Tinsukia Division of the NF Railway at his office today and handed over a memorandum addressed to the General Manager of NF Railway.

On the demand for provision of wide approach roads on both sides of the city�s main Dibrugarh (DBRG) station, the delegation was told by the DRM that a part of the road which was under the State Government�s jurisdiction was in a very bad shape, which the delegation rued, and that the part which belonged to the railway is already wide and that dividers with streetlights were already present and the same was being very well taken care of by the Railways.

On other demands of the association for increasing railway services in the district, the DRM informed the delegation that a DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit) service would be introduced in the Tinsukia Division in the near future.

The five-member delegation of the rail passengers� association led by Dayand Singh, vice-president of the Dibrugarh District Committee, also had a brief discussion with the DRM regarding improving rail services at Dibrugarh Railway Station.

During the discussions, the DRM assured the delegation that Railway licensed porter (coolie) would be provided and that steps would be taken for extension of the platform sheds at the Dibrugarh Railway Station.

Moreover, as demanded by the association, the DRM agreed to provide an old steam locomotive to be showcased in the courtyard of the Dibrugarh (DBRG) Station to signify Dibrugarh�s importance as the first place in North East India where the railway services started more than a century and a quarter back, i.e., on May 1, 1882.
