Kolkata, 6th August, 2014:
South Eastern Railway train services have been affected due to heavy rain resulting in accumulation of water on railway track between Jharsuguda and Ib stations in Bilaspur Division of South East Central Railway since yesterday (5.8.14) evening due to the rise in water level of IB river flowing below a bridge near Ib station.
Train services were suspended in both up and down lines of Jharsuguda- Raigarh section of South East Central Railway since16.10 hrs of 05-08-14 and as a result, all up and downtrains areeither getting delayed or running on diverted route. Train services had to be suspended as a precautionary measure taking into account the safety of the passengers travelling on trains running through this section.
POSITION OF UP TRAINS
Some of the Up trains which left Howrah yesterday(05.08.14) are running on diverted route via Jharsuguda-Titlagarh- Raipur and will reach their destinations beyond scheduled time due to the fact that the diverted route is longer and is on a single line non-electrified section.
