Indian Railways is implementing the broad gauge line connectivity project from Sivok to Rangpo (44.39 km). The project was sanctioned in 2008-09. So far, the expenditure of Rs. 554.46 crore has been incurred on the project upto 31.03.2019. The project is delayed as the West Bengal Government has not given encumbrance free land (77.78 Hectare forest land after cutting of trees) to Railway due to which, even the timely finalization of tenders is getting affected.
