Bilaspur: Trains going from Chhattisgarh’s capital Raipur station towards Katni are passing through the danger mark these days. Dense forest surrounded by high hills is also visible between Bilaspur to Pendra. This railway track pass is a 115 year old very important tunnel on down line near Bhanwartank station. Cracks have started appearing in the 331 meter long tunnel built at the highest point in Chhattisgarh (Chhattisgarh Tallest Tunnel). The bricks of the brick walls are visible. The plaster of the wall that was built on the tunnel has also started falling on the ground.

In 1966, during the doubling of the line, a second tunnel was built here on the up line. Its age is 59 years less than the old tunnel and the length is 109 meters more (total 441 meters). The new tunnel is so straight that it is visible through. In 1966, during the doubling of the line, a second tunnel was built here on the up line. Its age is 59 years less than the old tunnel and the length is 109 meters more (total 441 meters). The new tunnel is so straight that it is visible through.

Due to the tunnel being dilapidated, the train passing through this railway line passes at a speed of 10 to 16 kilometers per hour so that there is no danger and this danger can also be avoided. Trains coming on this railway track, all the trains coming from Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar towards Bilaspur pass through this tunnel and go out.

Railway officials say that the bridge that has been built is the highest in Bilaspur zone and the entire Chhattisgarh. Railway officials are going to see this tunnel and if there are such problems, then the work of repairing the problems that are coming around the tunnel will be done.

Built 115 years ago, this tunnel has been designed like a round and big pipe. Keeping an eye on the shape of the trains running in the old times, the engines and bogies of the trains would have been made according to them. Now high tech LHB coaches have arrived. On shaking, they have started rubbing against the walls of the tunnel. That’s why trains are being passed at a speed of 10 so that even if the coaches get rubbed, there is no damage. The cables for halogen lights in these tunnels are open from place to place.

There is also a danger of the coach hitting the walls of the tunnel that if the coach comes in contact with the open wire, current can also spread. When the train passes through this tunnel, mountain water is also seen seeping along the side of the track in the middle of the tunnel. This water is being used by the people living in the surrounding villages.
