NFR is constructing the tallest railway girder bridge of the world, in Manipur across the valley of the river Ijai near Noney. The bridge is part of a new broad gauge line to connect the northeastern state with the rest of the country
Indian Railways steps up the game – prepares to reach greater heights! The Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) – headquartered in Maligaon, Guwahati in the state of Assam, is constructing the tallest railway girder bridge of the world, in Manipur at 141 metres surpassing the existing record of 139 metre Mala-Rijeka viaduct, at Montenegro in Europe. The bridge at Manipur is part of a new broad gauge line being constructed to connect the northeastern state with the rest of the

country and the pillars have already been built. The NFR railway zone is responsible for rail operations in the entire Northeast and parts of West Bengal and Bihar.
NFR Senior Public Relations Officer, S K Ojah was quoted in a PTI report saying that the bridge is expected to surpass the existing record of the tallest girder bridge at 139 metre of Mala-Rijeka viaduct, Montenegro in Europe. It is being constructed across the valley of the river Ijai near Noney with a pier height of 141 metre. The bridge is a part of the 111-km long Jiribam-Tupul-Imphal new broad gauge line project in Manipur. The total length of the bridge will be almost 703 metre. There are a total of 45 tunnels in the bridge project. The longest is Tunnel No. 12 with a length of 10.280 km.
The piers of the bridge are constructed using hydraulic augers. The tall piers needed a specially designed ‘slip-form technique’ to ensure efficient and continual construction. The steel girders are pre-fabricated in a workshop which will be transported in segments which will further be erected at the site. ‘Self-erecting’ electric lifts are used at each pier for the safe and speedy conveyance of men and materials to the top. NFR officials told Financial Express Online that the bridge will be provided 24×7 security cover with personnel posted at the site and it will be earthquake-proof. The bridge will also benefit the crucial freight movement. According to Indian Railways, the bridge is designed to carry almost 25 ton axle-load freight trains.
A railway network that reaches and connects the seven sister states of North-East has always been acknowledged as a daunting and challenging task. But, to build the world’s tallest girder railway bridge in the Himalayan ranges, is truly a remarkable feat. The bridge will be almost twice as high as Qutub Minar. The project picked momentum owing to its status of a national project. The final cost of the bridge is likely to be around Rs 400 crore while the cost of the complete project is estimated at Rs 13,800 crore.

A new system planned by Indian Railways may reduce the issue of water shortage on trains, and make the system more efficient. Currently, for a 24 coach train, filling a train’s water tanks take about 20 minutes, under the new system, the time will be cut down to just five minutes.
More than 140 stations across India will have the system in place by March 2019 and the project will cost about Rs 300 crore. Those trains which make long journeys refill water every 300-400 km at railway stations.

quoted Railway Board Member Rajesh Agarwal as saying that, earlier the water was filled using four-inch-pipes which would now be replaced by six-inch ones.
The motors used would also be upgraded and operated via a computerised system called SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition), designed by RDSO. The pumps are said to be of 40 horsepower.
As per the report, railways currently receives a lot of complaints over inadequate water in trains, which might now be properly addressed.

NEW DELHI: Indian Railways on Saturday flagged off a new deluxe train for Buddhist pilgrims, called the Buddhist Circuit Tourist Train. It will traverse through the Buddhism sites in India such as Bodh Gaya, Rajgir (Nalanda), Varanasi (Sarnath), Lumbini, Kushinagar and Sravasti, before ending with a tour of Taj Mahal — because who doesn't want to see the Taj. This comes a few months after the Railways launched the Shri Ramayana Express which covers destinations associated with the life of Lord Rama in a 16-day package. The 'Shri Ramayana Yatra-Sri Lanka' pilgrimage has two components -- one each in India and Sri Lanka. The train running from Delhi makes its first stop in Ayodhya, followed by Hanuman Garhi Ramkot and Kanak Bhawan temple. It then covers Nandigram, Sitamarhi, Janakpur, Varanasi, Prayag, Shringverpur, Chitrakoot, Nasik, Hampi and Rameshwaram.

this, there was the senior citizen Tirtha Yatra Yojana train, which lets senior citizens travel to Shirdi, Nasik and Trimbakeshwar on a seven-day tour.The IRCTC used to provide a Buddhist tourism package, but travellers who avail of it take the regular Rajdhani trains. But considering the growing foreign tourist arrivals in India, especially from destinations like Japan, China, Thailand and Sri Lanka, Railways have now introduced a dedicated train.The Buddhist Circuit train comprises 12 high-speed and shock-resistant Linke-Hofmann-Busch (LHB) coaches -- 4 first-tier and 2 second-tier AC coaches, 1 kitchen car, 2 dining cars, 1 staff car and 2 power cars. The first AC coaches provide facilities such as individual locker and shower with geyser. The coaches have increased water capacity, digital lockers for each passenger in AC I coaches, Venetian windows, decorative lighting, separate pantry for vegetarian and non-vegetarian passengers and bio-toilets with vacuum evacuation. The dining car is provided with plate dispenser, microwave oven, coffee machine, bottle chiller, and a dish wash machine. Tickets for a full tour starts at $945 (nearly Rs 67,000).The Ramayana Express, however, is priced much lower — the Rs 15,120-tour package covers travel, food and accommodation. As a result, one travels in a 'passenger-class' train "stripped to the basics of Indian Railway travel".

बांसडीहरोड। वाराणसी-छपरा रेलखंड के बलिया-छपरा रेल मार्ग पर 11 दिसंबर को रेल संरक्षा के आयुक्त सहित दर्जनों अधिकारी निरीक्षण करेंगे। इस दौरान बलिया से छपरा के बीच विद्युतीकरण का अधिकारी निरीक्षण करेंगे। रेल सूत्रों की मानें तो उच्चाधिकारियों सब कुछ सही मिला तो दिसंबर माह में ही बलिया से छपरा के बीच इलेक्ट्रिक इंजन दौड़ाया जाएगा। निरीक्षण के दौरान बलिया से छपरा तक बिछाई गई ट्रेन की विंडो बारीकियां भी परखी जाएंगी। रेल महकमा की मानें तो आजादी के बाद से अब जाकर बलिया से छपरा के बीच इलेक्ट्रिक ट्रेन चलने का सपना साकार हो रहा है। बलिया-छपरा के बीच करीब 66 किलोमीटर लंबी इलेक्ट्रिक लाइन तैयार हो गई है। बीते सप्ताह ऊपरी लाइन में विद्युत भी सप्लाई कर दी गई है।

जाता है कि बलिया से छपरा तक निरीक्षण के बाद ट्रायल हो सकता है। सबसे पहले इलेक्ट्रिक इंजन दौड़ाया जाएगा। इलेक्ट्रिक ट्रेन चलने से कम खर्च आएगा साथ ही इंजन बदलने के भी झाम से निजात मिलेगी और समय की भी बचत होगी। रेल अधिकारियों की मानें तो इलेक्ट्रिक इंजन चलाने के बाद मालगाड़ी चलाई जाएगी। इसके बाद पैसेंजर ट्रेन दौड़ेगी। जिसकी सफलता आने के बाद एक्सप्रेस गाड़ियों में इलेक्ट्रिक इंजन लगाकर दौड़ाई जाएगी।
इस बाबत पीआरओ अशोक कुमार ने बताया कि रेल संरक्षा आयुक्त केके जैन बलिया से छपरा तक इलेक्ट्रिक ट्रेन चलाने के लिए निरीक्षण करेंगे। उनकी रिपोर्ट सही रहती है तो इलेक्ट्रिक ट्रेनें चलनी शुरू हो जाएंगी। कहा कि 11 दिसंबर को संरक्षा आयुक्त सहित रेल महकमा के उच्चाधिकारी निरीक्षण करेंगे।
