Rockfall Mitigation Measures for Cut Slopes Along Dudhnoi- Mendipathar Route Of North Frontier Railway Line, Assam, India

Rockfall Protection

A new railway line from Dudhnoi to Mendipathar as part of the Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) to connect the Garo Hills in Meghalaya with Assam and the rest of the country was planned in the year 2015. The difficult terrain in this region limited the connectivity and hence the railway line expansion was envisaged.
