The Goa State Board for Wildlife on Wednesday cleared the proposal of South Western Railway (SWR) for use of land along the existing track in Goa for double-tracking project. “It was decided to allow the SWR to convert the change of land use in the forest area along the existing track which was required for the double-tracking project,” Goa Forest Minster Rajendra Arlekar told reporters today. The meeting was chaired by Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar.
The SWR had asked the State forest department to allow conversion of 97 hectors of the land, but the board today decided that only 21 hector should be allowed to be converted. The minister said the Railways will build under pass and over pass on the places which are traditional pathways for the wild animals.
“We will ensure that the wild animals are not facing any disturbance due to the double tracking,” he said.
