GUWAHATI, July 10: The new Road Over Bridge (ROB) at Tetelia station yard, constructed by Northeast Frontier Railway, was opened for use by the public. This ROB (No 59A) was constructed by Northeast Frontier Railway at a total cost of Rs 72 crores.

The existing road on Level Crossing Gate No ST-22 passes through the station yard of Tetelia station and is situated on a state PWD road connecting Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary. There is high detention of road traffic due to shunting operations, movement of trains in both directions, or stabling of trains connecting Tetelia–Byrnihat section and Star Cement siding line. The newly constructed ROB will replace Level Crossing Gate No ST-22 at Tetelia station yard. The necessity for constructing an ROB in lieu of Level Crossing Gate No ST-22 arose due to road traffic congestion. The gate was very busy, with a TVU of 88,818. Necessary approval for the closure of Level Crossing Gate No ST-22 has been obtained from the district authority, government of Assam, and shall be closed with effect from July 10, 2024.

The total length of the newly constructed ROB is 442.58 meters, featuring a bow string arch steel girder of 62 meters in length. The height of the bow string arch steel girder is 16.754 meters, and its weight is 514 MT. This new ROB includes a newly constructed two-lane road of 7.50 meters in width, connecting NH 37 and Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, with viaducts on both sides. Two staircases on either side of the bow string girder have been provided for pedestrians to cross the railway track safely.

This new ROB will facilitate smooth dispersal of people and vehicles during rush hour and prevent commuters from trespassing on the railway tracks. Additionally, the ROB will increase operational efficiency, resulting in the smooth movement of both trains and road traffic in this area. The entire population of Sonapur as well as Morigaon district, will benefit.
