This project once completed will mark the dawn of a new era in terms of communication and commerce, in the North-eastern region of the country especially in Mizoram. The Bhairabi – Sairang project aims to create an additional 51.38 km of railway track in the Mizoram state of Northeast India. The project has already achieved physical progress of 91%.

Though there are many challenges in execution of this project like very less working season due to very heavy and prolonged monsoons, very tough and hilly terrain through deep forests, poor accessibility, non-availability of construction materials and skilled labor in Mizoram etc., Northeast Frontier Railway is making all efforts for fulfilling its commitment of earliest commissioning of the project.

The new rail project will provide enhanced connectivity to the people of the Mizoram, help grow small scale industries in the area and boost tourism of the state.
