Kohima, March 20 (EMN): The first phase of the Dimapur-Zubza railway project has begun at Sechü Zubza, below National Highway 29. As part of the first phase, massive earth cutting is in progress at Sechü Zubza, 15 km away from the state capital.
The company overseeing the work is M/s Royal Infra-Engineering Pvt. Ltd., a Gujarat-based company. It may be mentioned that Sechü Zubza, which is in the category of a major station, will be one of the last points before reaching Kohima.
Sources said that there is possibility of extending the railway connectivity towards Dzüdza river, a few kilometres beyond Zubza. The measurement towards this stretch is yet to be taken, however, it was informed that talks are underway with landowners.
Talking to Eastern Mirror, one of the local contractors Neizeto Peseyie said his team will work with pace before the arrival of monsoon rains.
