On Sundays, Limited Height Sub-ways and track linking works have been planned in Angul-Sambalpur Railway Section. Similarly, installation of new girders has been planned on bridges in Palasa-Vizianagaram Railway section on Thursdays by replacing old girders. Apart from this, works have also been planned on Tuesdays & Saturdays in Titilagarh-Raipur Railway Section.

The advance planning by ECoR focuses on convenience of the passengers. The modernisation works have been distributed on different days in different Railway sections. So that, minimum train will be cancelled and partially cancelled.

ECoR is working on providing such information well in advance, so that passengers may plan their journey accordingly.
