Rail traffic disrupted on Howrah-Delhi route



Etawah: Rail traffic on the Howrah-Delhi route was Thursday disrupted after a crack was detected on the railway track near Bhupat Sarai railway station, a senior officer said here.

The crack was detected between the upline Bhupat Sarai and Etawah railway stations this morning after which three trains including Gomti and Mahabodi were stopped, station manager P K Kamal said.

He said the repair work was being carried out and is likely to be completed soon.

This is the such second incident in less than a week. Earlier on October 2, at least half a dozen trains were stranded after a crack was detected on the railway track near Sarai Bhupat railway station.
