Nayagarh: The East Coast Railway (ECoR) on Thursday conducted speed test of train on newly built track from Nayagarh Town to Mahipur (12 km) in the ongoing Khurda Road-Balangir (289-km) railway line project.
The track is likely to be opened for traffic after a high-level inspection by Commissioner, Railway Safety is done.
With the newly-built 12 km rail line, the ECoR has already completed 92 km of the Khurda Road-Balangir project. Earlier, 80 km of rail line– 65.5 km from Khurda Road to Nayagarh Town and 14.5 km from Balangir to Bichhupalli– were completed.
Notably, on July 20, a trial run of train engine was carried out on the 12 km BG line.
