The Center wants to put more emphasis on ensuring security on the Sikkim-China border. But rail service is becoming virtually essential for the army to reach the border. Anshul Gupta, general manager of North East Frontier Railway, said on Thursday, “Survey work will start soon up to Rangpo Gangtok. The next step will be to start the survey work up to Nathu-la ‘, he said, adding that the work of laying Sebak-Rangpo railway is nearing completion.

Most of the Sebak to Rangpur railway will be away from the national highway. There are 14 tunnels in the whole path. The longest tunnel is near Tarkhola. Its length is 5.3 km. There will be 5 stations from Sebak to Rangpo. The next station of the servant is called Riang. Then Teesta, then Malli, then Rangpo at the very end. The 45 km long project will cover 41 km in Darjeeling and only 4 km in Sikkim.

Experts say the construction of the railway will not only change the course of the tourism industry, but will also help in ensuring security along the Sikkim-China border. So after several airports in the north-east, this time the center wants to look at the direction of the railway to Nathu-la.
