What’s Trending: Andaman & Nicobar may get a new lifeline

andaman and nicobar

Seems like 2017 is a year of new beginnings for the Indian Railways. The railway ministry has decided to set up a 240k broad-gauge line in Andaman and Nicobar.

Apparently, the proposed rail line will connect Port Blaire with Diglipur.

The ministry is yet to approve the project, which will connect the two cities, separated by a distance of 350ks and presently connected only by a bus and ship service.

The line will cost approximately ₹2,413.68cr. The ministry and the union government are deliberating upon the negative rate of return from this project; the railway ministry however is keen to give the project a go ahead given its strategic importance, tourism potential and uniqueness.

If this project gets the go ahead, it will definitely make the less explored union territory more accessible.
