“Since the visibility has been reduced due to dense fog situation, we have taken precautionary measures by announcing cancellation of these trains in advance,” he said.
Regular announcements are being made to inform passengers about the train positions. Help desks have also been set up at various stations to guide people to avail train service for their destinations. Loco drivers have been given strict instructions to drive slowly during the foggy weather. About 34 Delhi-bound trains are running late by several hours on Monday due to bad weather.
