Project Description

The Project is the “SASEC Chittagong-Cox’s Bazar Railway Project, Phase 1” which involves the construction of a new 103.50-kilometre dual gauge single line railway corridor from Dohazari to Cox’s Bazar via Ramu. This railway corridor is part of the Trans-Asia Railway network which will enable sub-regional traffic from Dhaka and Chittagong towards Cox’s Bazar from where the border with Myanmar can be reached by road. It will also provide future direct connectivity towards northeastern India to Bhutan and Nepal through the Indian railway network.
