Jagatsinghpur, Jan 31 (LocalWire): Earlier today, the people of Jagatsinghpur district decided to seek the intervention of higher authorities of the railway department for the construction of an over-bridge at Kendarpur level crossing on the Cuttack-Nuagaon National Highway.
Sources informed LocalWire that lakhs of people depend on this road. This road is the only lifeline for the district as many medical cases from nearby towns and villages requiring urgent medical attention are taken to Bhubaneswer and Cuttack via this road only.
The ambulance has been found stuck at the Kandapur level crossing multiple times in a day while critical medical conditions are put on hold. Many have died on the road while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. Hence, the plight of the locals can clearly be understood.
Local people, led by a youngster named Swadhin Kumar Swain, have demanded the authorities for the construction of an over-bridge on the railway line of Cuttack-Nuagaon highway.
A memorandum has been given to the Union Minister of the railway department, the Revenue Divisional Commissioner, Central range, Cuttack, the Collector and a local MLA to take this matter into consideration and seriously start working on the same.
