GUWAHATI, Oct 29 - Train services to and from Upper Assam and the rest of the country, which had got affected on Sunday due to the rising water levels in the Dhansiri river between Bokajan and Chongajan stations, have been fully restored.
Nripen Bhattacharya, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR), said that services were restored late last evening after the water level in the area receded and repair work on the track was completed.
“Train services are now running normally. There are no more cancellations or short-termination of trains. The situation at the spot is being constantly monitored,” he said.
It is noteworthy that many long-distance trains to and from Upper Assam were diverted yesterday via the Bogibeel Bridge and the North Bank of the Brahmaputra.
“Trains, including the Delhi-Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express, have now again started running via their original route,” Bhattacharya added.
