Railway Minister Md Nurul Islam Sujan on Sunday said the railway link on Akhaura-Agartala route between Bangladesh and India will be opened in June next year.

“The rail communication between Akhaura and Agartala is important for both countries and once the rail link opens, trade between the two countries will be expanded, and people of the two countries can travel easily via railway,” he said while talking to reporters after visiting the Zero Point area along Agartala.

Replying to a question, Sujon said, “Most of the work of the rail line has been completed and the rest will be finished soon before June.”

Asked about the Akhaura-Laksham railway project, the minister said the progress of the project is satisfactory and the 17 km rail line of the project will be opened for the public within January 15.

The Akhaura-Agartala Rail Line project is being built with the financial assistance of India and the overall progress of the project is 67 percent.
