The proposed engineering work at the diamond crossing at Melpakkam railway yard, located near the Arakkonam railway station, which was announced late on Friday, resulted in the cancellation of seven trains, including the Arakkonam-Jolarpettai Express (train no. 16085), Vellore-Arakkonam passenger and KSR Bengaluru-Arakkonam passenger trains on Sunday.
