NFR records rise in traffic


Maligaon, November 13, 2017: Northeast Frontier Railway has been able to allot greater time for renewal of assets due to systematic planning in train operations. Timely maintenance of assets like tracks, points and crossings, minor bridges, girders, over bridges and more are vital for safety of passenger and operation of train services. 

Due to increase in numbers of trains over the years, availability of time period for renewal as well as repair of assets continued to decrease over the time. But of late, by some precise planning have resorted to planned cancellations of trains on lean demand days like Sundays which has led to a big increase in the allotment of traffic block.

During September, 2016 only 53% of the time was sanctioned for undertaking renewal as well as repair of assets. But, during September, 2017 it could be increased to 93.73%. Similarly, in-comparison to 48.48% available maintenance time during October 2016 the situation improved upto 81.11% during October, 2017 due to meticulous planning of train operations.

It is to be mentioned that granting of traffic block has had no adverse affect on the punctuality of trains in NF Railway.
