Ennore port gets nod for north rail link

Ennore Port’s dream to have access to northern rail link is close to realisation after Indian Railways gave its in-principle approval for the Rs 170-crore project.

The 26-km-long rail link will be on a single track connecting the port with the Chennai-Gudur mainline. It will terminate close to Minjur, said Ennore Port chairman and managing director M A Bhaskarachar.

“We got the approval on Friday,” said Bhaskarachar during a function where Union Shipping Minister handed over benefits worth Rs 1.5 crore to those identified under corporate social responsibility.
