Ranchi Railways Broke Its Own Record by Constructing an Underpass in Just 2.4 Hours

The Ranchi Railway Division (RRD), on Sunday broke its own record by making an underpass in 2 hours and 40 minutes on the single line Karra-Govindpur route in Jharkhand.

Earlier, RRD had constructed an underpass between Lodhma and Karra in 3 hours and 15 minutes.

About 100 workers, three cranes, four JCB machines, three polken, and four tractors were used to construct this underpass. Indian railways had to pay about Rs 1.10 crore for its construction.
