IRCON Signs Agreement for Sikkim Rail Project

IRCON International Limited, a Public Sector Undertaking under the Ministry of Railways, signed an agreement with Northeast Frontier Railway for construction of new Broad Gauge Railway line between Sivok to Rangpo connecting North Bengal to Sikkim. The Agreement was signed at Guwahati in presence of Shri Shiv Kumar, General Manager, N.F. Railway, Shri Mohan Tiwari, Managing Director, IRCON and other senior officers of Railways and IRCON.
IRCON is having vast experience of construction of Mega railway projects in India and abroad including the construction of railway line in J&K which offers similar challenges. The project is planned to be completed in 5 years with an estimated cost of Rs. 3380 crore.
The proposed alignment connecting Sivok to Rangpo, passing through the foothills of Kanchanjungha mountain range and Teesta river valley is 45 km long with more than 32 kms length in tunnels, 28 bridges spanning deep gorges/valleys with likely bridge pier height more than 75 meters. When completed, this project will greatly improve the connectivity to Sikkim and will be a great boost to the State’s economy as well as tourism. Work on the project has already commenced.
