Welcoming the decision of the Railway Ministry to fast-track various projects in the region, including doubling of tracks and construction of a second rail bridge over the Brahmaputra at Saraighat, the Assam Rail Passengers’ Association (ARPA) today said the new schemes should not remain mere statements but should be properly implemented and completed in a time-bound fashion.

Dipankar Sharma, secretary of ARPA, said the latest announcements address many of the long-pending demands of people of the region regarding development of railway infrastructure and expansion of the rail network. His reaction came a day after Union Minister of State for Railways Rajen Gohain said that work on double-tracking will start from next week while sanction for a second rail bridge over the Brahmaputra at Saraighat is also expected soon.
