There would be two lines of 800 metres each in the railway siding from Thokur station near here and after completion, around 2,800 tonnes of products are expected to be transported by rail every day, an official release said yesterday.

The proposed siding would help in the transportation of products like pet coke, polypropylene, sulphur and bitumen from the plant.

The project, estimated to cost Rs 46 crore, would be completed in 24 months, it added.

MRPL would have its railway siding for loading and unloading facility in its premises within two years, which would reduce its dependency on transportation of cargo through road.

Several products of MRPL, including petrol, diesel and aviation turbine fuel, pet coke and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) were being transported by road.
