Guwahati, January 7, 2019:
After the construction of the Bogibeel Bridge rail-cum-road bridge which will drastically reduce travel-time between Arunachal Pradesh and Assam, another project is in the works which will lead to further connectivity between the two states.
Construction of a railway line between Murkong Selek in Assam and Pasighat in Arunachal Pradesh can be expected now that Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has assured necessary action on its construction on the behest of Arunachal East’s Lok Sabha representative Ninong Ering.
Hon'ble Railway Minister @PiyushGoyal Ji has assured necessary action on construction of Murkong Selek – Pasighat rail line.
