During the period 1893 to 1896, 800 miles of East Coast State Railway was built and opened to traffic. It necessitated construction of some of the largest bridges across rivers like Brahmani, Kathajodi, Kuakhai and Birupa.
As Bhubaneswar railway station was getting saturated, a satellite passenger terminal was under construction at New Bhubaneswar (between Mancheswar and Barang). While Bhubaneswar railway station was located on the southern side of the city, New Bhubaneswar railway station would be located on the northern side.
