Indian Railways Gives Green Signal for 223-Kilometre Rail Line To Mizoram

With focus on North-East India, Indian Railways has accorded its approval for the final location survey of a 223 km rail line from Sairang (Aizawl) to Hbichhuah in Mizoram, near the Myanmar border.

"Considering the strategic importance of the region and vis-à-vis economic development, the Ministry of Railways has decided to take up the project. This project will provide one more access point to Northeast India through Hbichhuah,” Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) CPRO Sabyasachi De said.

The project is strategically important as it is expected that the railway link to Hbichhuah, once completed, will lower the cost and time of transportation of goods via Sittwe Port in Myanmar to the northeast.
