Manned Level Crossing CT41 between Dhenkanal and Sadashivpur Railway Stations under Dhenkanal Districts of Odisha was connecting State Highway between Dhenkanal and Kamakhyanagar.
For smooth rail-road communication and in view of safety of both rail & road users, Road Over Bridge has been constructed and commissioned. As a result, it has been decided to close the Manned Level Crossing Gate No. CT-41 for public.

Construction of Road Over Bridges are being done on cost sharing basis where the number of Train Vehicle Units (TVU) crosses more than one lakh and/or Level Crossing Gate closes for many times for passage of Trains in 24 hours as per the norms and rules.
Out of 18 Manned Level Crossings closed in current financial year, 6 LCs have been provided with ROBs, 10 with Road Under Bridges/Limited Height Subways, 01 by Diversion and one due to outright TVR.
