Rayagada: Due to constraints in train operations and in view of safety of both trains and passengers, East Coast Railway (ECoR) has decided to cancel/partially cancel a few trains in Titilagarh-Rayagada railway section.
Officials said that track fitness has been given at very slow speed of 10kmph with caution order to keep a sharp lookout for water level on the track and in nearby areas.
“As the speed at the site is quite slow, the number of trains that can pass at the site will automatically get reduced. We are monitoring the situation with continuous patrolling of the track. Senior \officials are also at the site to monitor complete restoration of tracks,” said an official.
