An innovative type of residential accommodation for Railway staff at Jakhpura Railway Station under Khurda Road Division of East Coast Railway has emerged as an engineering marvel. This beautiful 3-storeyed building with minimal expenditure of Rs. 2.27 crores has been constructed within four months of time with the use of Pre-fabricated released materials with steel structure and expanded poly styrene wall panelling. In normal course of time, to construct this building atleast o­ne and half years of time would have been taken. This building has structure without conventional system of construction and it is fire proof. Architectural elevation has been given by plastering this G+2 storied building. While inspecting the Jakhpura Railway Station, Shri Umesh Singh, General Manager of East Coast Railway has appreciated efforts of the engineers of Khurda Road Division in constructing this building within a record time of 4 months o­nly. The building has 33 nos. of isolated footings as foundation with highest quality column/beam and slab work. The rooms have been tiled and flush doors provided. This Environment-friendly project has ensured that not a single tree has been cut and there is provision of Rain water harvesting.

After construction of this building the Railway staff working nearby Jakhapura area will be benefited. Railway staff are booked every day to operate from the Jakhapura station. At present all the staff are residing at Jajpur Keonjhar Road, which is 15 kms away from Jakhapura. It will save time in getting off & going down to the place of work and will also help to save the reduced efficiency of staff and delay of trains. More such quarters will be built in the near future.
