Nagpur - Itasri Rail Track Repairing Work Complete

Nagpur - Itasri Rail Track Repairing Work Complete

AIDED by huge support from local villagers. Central Railway fast tracked repairs on Nagpur-Itarsi segment and restored it for traffic after 96-hours of gruelling work. Around II am after the light engine ran through the newly laid track, the first passenger train moved quickly, leading to all round applause. Before that for four days, the division pitch forked its entire labour force and started the work from the scratch.
The emergency work, second time this monsoon in Nagpur Division, was necessitated after the earthwork ahead of Barbatnur station got washed away in flash floor of Machna river. The UP line on Grand Trunk route between Nagpur and itarsi left the train operation in tatters. Nearly 40 feet of gorge developed due to washing away other earthen embankment which led to suspension of traffic on UP line.
With only one line available, the train operations slowed down leading to late running of trains. Now the operations are limping back to normalcy and would take one more day before order is completely restored.
After receipt of information on Friday morning, the division officers swung into action and post Sindi episode the men and material was already in place. About 140 wagons of heavy boulders, sandbags and ballast was required lo fill-up the gorge. Besides six pokeland machines, two JCB and eight tractor aided the operation to restore normalcy.
What was the unique part of the entire operation was massive support from the locals in Barbatpur and ShahpurGram Panchayat area. The fact thai Divisional Railway Manager <DRM > Brijesh Dixit hails from the area led to quick deployment of nearly 1500 villagers whose efforts aided the departmental labour. While during the day time the villagers work to ferry the material, during the night the departmental teams carried out the repair work.
