Railways to debut in Andamans
February 7 (TravelAndy): Indian Railways is planning to introduce a rail link between Port Blair and Diglipur in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, to put the archipelago on the rail map of India.
It is going to be a 240 Km broad gauge rail link that will connect Andaman’s capital to north Andaman’s largest city.
At present, the two cities are connected by a 350 Km bus ride and a 24 hour ship journey. There are no air connectivity between the two destinations.
The introduction of rail link is expected to benefit both tourists and traders.
The project is awaiting final clearance from the Railway ministry of India.
