Rail route to Vizag cleared for traffic - Sakshi Post

The rail route to Visakhapatnam on Vijayawada-Rajahmundry-Visakhapatnam section of Vijayawada Division of South Central Railway, which had been affected due to cyclone Hudhud, was opened for rail traffic by Tuesday afternoon.


The railway track on down line towards Visakhapatnam has been made fit for traffic and trains will be operated through this single line. Train 18520 Lokamanya Tilak Terminus to Visakhapatnam smoothly passed through the restored line at 3.45 PM on Tuesday.

The work to restore the second up line has also been taken up on war-footing and is likely to be cleared for traffic by Wednesday.

Breaches on track occurred at several locations between Elamanchili-Narsingapalli-Bayyavaram stations on this route due to heavy rains in the aftermath of Cyclone Hudhud.
