Railway Ministry tried to connect the railway station to Azimganj Junction railway station. But due to land acquisition problems, the work of connecting these two stations was stopped. However, with help of Mamata Banerjee, the expansion work has been started again in full swing. The bridge named as Nashipur Rail Bridge over the Bhagirathi River is complete. The Murshidabad-Azimgunj link is expected to be commissioned by the end of December, 2017. Some North Bengal trains like Darjeeling Mail, Haldibari Express are likely to move through SDHA-RHA-BPC-MBB-AZ instead of crossing Bali Bridge and move through BWN-BHP-MLDT. Rail Ministry reports say that this linkage will minimise the travel distance(25 km) as well as time.
