Imphal, July 14:

As the Nagaland government is closing the Kohima-Dimapur stretch of the National Highway from tomorrow, the North East Frontier Railway is making all efforts to ferry goods of all kinds to Khongshang Railway station here in Manipur.
A notification by the Chief Secretary to the government of Nagaland, J. Alam , IAS, in a notification dated July 11, 2022, had issued an order for prohibition of movement of any transport vehicles beyond three axles including semi-tractor articulated trailers which is also three-axle vehicle but whose carrying capacity is 30.5 tonnes along the NH stretch from Dimapur to Kohima for a period from July 15, 2022, to August 11, 2022.
The closure of the road stretch for nearly a month will give a serious impact on the state of Manipur, as the condition of the Imphal-Jiribam National Highway is in deplorable condition.
Thanks to the NFR, this time the closure of both the high ways for some reason or others is not going to give much impact as a source close to the Imphal Times said that the NFR is commissioning goods train via Silchar till Khongshang Railway Station.
In this rail track, the NFR had already conducted a trial run of the goods trains in May 2022.
Officials of the NFR, when contacted by Imphal Times said that the NFR is ready for transportation of goods if booked. But the railway may not be able to send the goods train unless an adequate quantity of goods is booked for transportation.
At the filing of this report, it cannot be confirmed how much booking has been done to the goods train.
