Dohazari-Cox’s Bazar Railway Project – Trial Run in October 2023

The project has been implemented considering the impact of adverse weather. Meanwhile, the Bangladesh Railway East zone has already proposed to the Ministry for a schedule of the train in Dhaka-Cox’s Bazar line by October.

Bangladesh Railway sources said, the services will run with high-quality coaches for the tourists of Cox’s Bazar. A new project has been taken to implement this and 54 coaches will be purchased under this project, which is designed with wide windows, sources said.

The project includes eight stations along the 100-km railway line at Satkania, Lohagara, Chakaria, Dulahazara, Eidgaon, Ramu and Cox’s Bazar Sadar.

To facilitate this, three big bridges have been constructed on Sangu, Matamuhuri and Bakkhali rivers. Besides, 43 small bridges, 201 culverts and 144 level crossings have been constructed on the railway. A flyover will be constructed in Keochia area of Satkania thana and two highway crossings in Ramu and Cox’s Bazar areas. An overpass of 50 metres and three underpasses are being constructed for the movement of elephants and other wildlife.

A spectacular iconic railway station has been constructed on 29 acres of land in the Hajipara area of Jhelongja Union, seven kilometers east-north of Cox’s Bazar Sadar. The station has been modeled after a beach oyster. The area of the six-storey station building is 1,82,000 square feet. Three platforms of 650 metres in length and 12 meters in width have been constructed near the iconic building.

At least 46,000 people can travel through the station in a day. A direct railway connection with Cox’s Bazar will change fortunes in the beach town as tourists always want to reach their destinations without hazards for their perfect vacation.
