The government will increase internal railway tracks as well

Railways Minister Md Nurul Islam Sujan has said the rail connectivity with the neighbouring countries will be established.

The government will increase internal railway tracks as well, said the minister while speaking at the “Meet the Press” program at Railway Bhaban in Dhaka.

He said: "The government has plans to build a railway network with Myanmar, from where  it will be easier to connect with China through railways. 

“And eventually, Bangladesh will be connected with Thailand and Malaysia through Trans Asian route.”

Besides, two projects--Padma Rail Link and Dohazari-Cox's Bazar-Gundum Rail Line--of the ten fast-track mega projects of the prime minister's Delta Plan, will be completed soon, said the minister.

Nurul Islam also said the feasibility study of the hi-speed train service on Dhaka-Chittagong route is being carried out, reports the UNB.

"To make the railway sector a profitable one, carrying of goods will be prioritized along," he said.

A total of 240 new coaches will be added so that the number of trains can be increased, said the minister.

"The government is also committed to rooting out ticket blacking," said Nurul Islam adding that the railway sector will be made more service oriented.
