Officials said that the Ministry of Railways has sanctioned a new broad gauge (BG) line between Jeypore and Nabarangpur in Odisha.

The 38 kilometer (km) long new line project will be implemented on cost-sharing basis of 50% each between the Railways and Odisha government.

The cost of the project is INR 747.91 crore and is expected to be completed in three years.

The project is important for connecting Nabarangpur district of western Odisha with Jeypore in the southern region to an existing station on the Kottavalasa-Kirandul line.

The new line will provide connectivity to important towns like Koraput and Jeypore in Odisha and Jagdalpur and Dantewada in Chhattisgarh.

The line will also be useful for connecting Nabarangpur to Junagarh in the Kalahandi district. Odisha government will bear the entire cost of land and 50% of construction cost of the project.

The officials added that the link will be a boon for transporting maize, rice, fertilizer, cement, wheat and others from various villages and towns en-route.
