The Gopalpur Port is likely to restart operations from August 30, said Commerce and Transport Minister Ramesh Chandra Majhi. The port was closed after cyclone Phailin which struck Odisha coast on October 12, 2013.
As the cyclone Phailin has crossed Odisha,
railways and port operations in the state have been resumed in the coastal areas of the state on October 13. East Coast Railways, which resumed most of the train services after a gap of two days, will shortly restart freight loading operations as well.
