An initiative has been taken by NF Railway to improve rail connectivity in Northeast by extending the service of Guwahati-Lumding-Guwahati Express up to Shokhuvi in Nagaland in one end and up to Mendipathar in Meghalaya on the other.
New Rail Connectivity in Northeast; Droupadi Murmu to flag off
The flagging off ceremony will be conducted by President Droupadi Murmu from Guwahati on October 14.
The new rail service will help in bridging the gap between the people living in three Northeastern states – Assam, Meghalaya and Nagaland.
The NF railway said, “The Mendipathar-Guwahati passenger special will depart from Mendipathar with a new train no. 05607 on every Tuesday and Thursday at 12:30 hours to reach Guwahati at 4:40 pm on the same day. The same train will depart from Guwahati at 5 pm on the same day with a new train no 05605 to reach Shokhuvi at 11:55 pm on the same day.”
