Floods: ECoR takes steps for safe train operations

Friday, 25 October 2013 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR
The East Coast Railway has taken steps to ensure safety of passengers and safety of train operations during times of heavy floods and waterlogging in many areas.

The down main line at Ichhapuram near Palasa on the Howrah-Chennai trunk route has been made functional with restricted speed after remaining suspended for operations for more than 18 hours. Twenty-nine trains were diverted on alternative routes while three trains remained cancelled between Bhubaneswar and Palasa.
Three trains were run ex-Palasa to Visakhapatnam, Secunderabad and Tirupati.  Many trains ex-Howrah to South India remained diverted through alternative routes via Kharagpur, Jharsuguda and Nagpur. The Bhubaneswar-Chennai Express, Bhubaneswar-Mumbai Konark Express, Puri-Ahamadabad Express, Hirakhand Express and some passenger trains are being run on this route.
The up line remains waterlogged and a decision on train running would be taken after the rains subside, said an ECoR release. Limited capacity would be a constraint to run more number of trains. A large number of goods trains carrying coal to powerhouses would also be affected as primacy would be given to running of express and passenger trains.
