Snapped Cable Stalls 40 Trains, Cancels 4 | Surat


Surat: Train movement on the Ahmedabad-Mumbai track was impacted after an overhead electricity cable snapped between Bharuch and Ankleshwar on Monday night. While four trains had to be cancelled, around 40 trains got either delayed or their timings were rescheduled.
The delay and cancellation of the trains led to huge crowding at the railway stations in south Gujarat region as passengers got stranded for hours. The affected cable was repaired at around 8am on Tuesday and thereafter train movement was regularised gradually.
“Initially trains were cancelled while a few trains got delayed but the repair was done on priority. The exact reason why the cable broke is yet not clear,” said a railway official.
A large number of pass holders travel through Bharuch- Anand 09299 departing Bharuch, Valsad-Vadodara 09161 departing Valsad, Bharuch-Surat 09172 departing Bharuch, and the Vadodara-Surat 09156 departing Vadodara to reach their workplace and were greatly affected due to the cancellation on Tuesday morning.
