‘record 450km Of Railway Line Completed In State In 2022-23’ | Bhubaneswar News

Bhubaneswar: Railway minister Ashwini Vaishnaw on Thursday said the Indian Railways has completed construction of 450km rail line in Odisha during the 2022-23 financial year, which is a record since Independence.
“From 2009 to 2014, the railways had managed to complete construction of around 53km of rail line work per year. But after 2014, the work has been speeded up,” Vaishnaw said this while flagging off a new train, Bhadrak-Nayagarh Town-Bhadrak MEMU, in Cuttack. “It shows the Narendra Modi-led BJP government’s commitment to Odisha,” Vaishnaw added.
He said the Centre has chosen 57 railway stations from Odisha for redevelopment. “Cuttack station will be redeveloped at an estimated cost of Rs 303 crore. It will be a world class station. People will love it,” the minister added.
Vaishnaw, who is also the minister of communications, said they have kept their word by providing 5G service to Odisha in the first phase. “Some people had created a rumour that Odisha may not get 5G service in the first phase, but we have launched the service much before the scheduled deadline of March 31,” he said.
