Bangladesh Railways (BR) plans to construct a railway link between Bogra and Jamtoil in Sirajganj, Bangladesh.
The project involves the construction of a 72km railway line from Bogra to Jamtoil (Sirajganj). The project will include the construction of stations, platforms, bridges, an administrative facility and other related facilities, the installation of lighting, overhead sign structures, and the laying of track.
In 2008, a feasibility report on the proposed project was prepared on the basis of data on the Fulchari-Bahadurabad Ghat, Shariakandi-Madarganj and Bogra-Jamtoil interconnections.
AECOM, China Railway No. 5 Engineering (Group) Co., Ltd (CR5), Balaji Railroad Systems Ltd and ACE Consultants Ltd have been appointed as environmental consultant.
