“Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) has achieved a significant milestone in its electrification efforts by commissioning the electrification of the single line portion of Dudhnai to Mendipathar and the double line section of Abhayapuri to Pancharatna on March 15th. These areas have a combined track length of 57.413 kilometers and have been electrified by the Central Organization for Railway Electrification (CORE), as reported by the Ministry of Railways.
This is a crucial step towards NFR’s goal of complete electrification, which will contribute to the efforts of Indian Railways in achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2030. Electrifying railway tracks reduces carbon emissions and enables a more sustainable mode of transportation, which is crucial in combating climate change.
Meghalaya, a state in northeast India, which has only one railway stop in Mendipathar, will benefit significantly from this electrification. Trains pulled by electric locomotives can now depart directly from Mendipathar, enhancing the overall speed and efficiency of the railway service.
The commissioning of electrified sections of railway tracks is a significant milestone for NFR in its efforts towards a greener and more sustainable railway system. With this achievement, the railway service can provide more efficient and eco-friendly transportation, promoting a better future for the people of Meghalaya and the environment as a whole.”
