Cyclone Phailin: Railways restore link between Howrah, Puri

New Delhi: With cyclone Phailin losing its intensity, the East Coast Railway today restored train services between Howrah and Puri.

However, services between Khurda Road station and Palsa remain suspended as the restoration work on the track is still continuing, an East Coast Railway spokesperson said. The services were restored between Howarh and Puri after necessary repair of overhead equipment, checking of signalling system and removal of uprooted trees and debris from the railway tracks. The railways had on Sunday cancelled all trains between certain sections as a precautionary measure due to the cyclone.
