History

With the extension of railways to Barakar in 1856, that town became the railhead for the vast hinterland that lay beyond it. In 1871, Giridih was connected to Madhupur on the Howrah–Delhi main line, through a branch line. Giridih served as the railhead for Hazaribagh and other places in the area till the Grand Chord line was laid. Hazaribagh Road station, along with the Grand Chord, was opened in February 1907 (1906 according to some railway related sources). While both Hazaribngh Road and Koderma were connected with Hazaribagh by metalled roads and they were about equally distant from what was then the headquarters of a large district. Hazaribagh Road was, however, the station ordinarily used, as it was considerably nearer to Kolkata.[3][4]

Electrification

The Gomoh–Koderma sector was electrified in 1961–62.[5]
