In a bid to maintain railway tracks in proper condition and provide safe transportation and comfortable journeys to rail passengers and stake holders, several track renewal works were undertaken by NFR during the fiscal year of 2023-24, as a part of the ongoing Safety Action Plan and Works.

These track renewal works have surpassed the set annual targets during the last fiscal year, projecting the remarkable works done by the zone.

During the financial year 2023-24, as a part of the ongoing safety action plan, 257.98 TKM of Through Rail Renewal, 210.71 TKM of Through Sleeper Renewal & 264.16 CTR units of Complete Track Renewal works have been completed.

NFR has also achieved 7.27 lakh cubic meter of progress in Ballasting works against a target of 5 lakh cubic meter which is marked as the highest ever progress surpassing last year’s progress of 6.34 lakh cubic meter. In addition, 134 nos. of Thick Web Switches have been installed as compared to 35 nos. during the progress of 2022-23.

As a part of the Road Safety Works, for ease of movement of both road and rail users, 19 nos. of manned level crossings have been eliminated as well as 20 nos. of Road Over Bridges (ROB) and 48 nos of Road Under Bridges (RUB) were commissioned during the fiscal year of 2023-24 within NFR.
