Railway users seek road to new station

A number of key issues like construction of an approach road to the upcoming station complex in Dhanbad and repairs of the railway foot overbridge near Purana Bazar were discussed at a meeting of Divisional Railway Users’ Consultative Committee, East Central Railway, on Tuesday.

Apart from Dhanbad DRM Sudhir Kumar, who presided over the meeting at his office, senior divisional commercial manager Dayanand, senior divisional operating manager Ved Prakash and senior commandant of Railway Protection Force Sashi Kumar were present.

General secretary of Federation of Dhanbad Zila Chamber of Commerce and Industry Rajesh Kumar Gupta raised the point of construction of an approach road from Jorapokhar to the new complex that is being constructed on the southern side of the existing railway station.

“We want an approach road to the new station from Jorapokhar so that passengers of Jharia, Bastacola, Sindri and Jamadoba can avoid the busy Bank More overbridge,” said Gupta.

He was told the railway board had already given an NoC to the government for constructing a 1.5km road. “We have written to the zonal headquarters in Hajipur for waiving the supervision charge that the railway takes for use of its land. Construction might begin as soon as approval is given,” Dayanand said.

DRUCC members also sought repairs of the foot overbride connecting the main station with Purana Bazaar. However, the officials said a new footbridge was already in the railway plan.
