In another demand put forward by the ministers from Jammu, the Railways Minister also agreed for the manning all railway crossings in the State in order to prevent mishaps. He said that the foot or over head bridges would be constructed at all unmanned crossings.
Further, he assured that he will visit Jammu-Rajouri-Poonch and Lakhanpur-Basohli-Bhaderwah railway line shortly to examine feasibility of the routes and undertake work.
The railway line was proposed via Akhnoor-Sunderbani and Nowshera and it is also important from strategic point of view as both Rajouri and Poonch have long LoC with Pakistan.
Also, today, Suresh Prabhu is going to lay foundation stone for construction of Escalators, Lifts, Multiplex Complex, Executive Lounge and Mechanized Laundry at Jammu Railway Station before returning to New Delhi.
