Press Release:ER CONSTRUCTED ANOTHER LIMITED HEIGHT SUBWAY BETWEEN JIRAT AND GUPTIPARA STATIONS

ER CONSTRUCTED ANOTHER LIMITED HEIGHT SUBWAY BETWEEN JIRAT AND GUPTIPARA STATIONS

Kolkata, January 23, 2023:


In accomplishment of Eastern Railway's mission  of increasing sectional speed by replacing level crossings, construction wing of ER's Howrah Division completed the construction work for a Limited Height Subway (LHS) in replacement of Level Crossing Gate No. 6/2 between Jirat and Guptipara stations in Bandel - Katwa section. The construction work for this LHS completed o­ne hour before the scheduled duration of  traffic and power block was taken for this purpose o­n 22.1.2023,  which was possible due to better planning and perfect coordination in between various departments of Eastern Railway at work site.

Nine (09) precast reinforced cement concrete segments of size 7.2m×5.85m were placed safely to complete the tunnel of the LHS. Construction of this Limited Height Subway will not o­nly enhance sectional speed by increasing average speed of Mail/Express as well as Goods trains but also ensure safety for both Rail and Road traffic. Besides, early construction of this LHS will provide more operational flexibilities and at the same time it will significantly bring down green house gas in the locality by diminishing bunching of road traffic.

  In shadow of this traffic block, various other capacity building and safety related work were also accomplished for the sake of  seamless train operations by minimising the need for separate traffic block.
