Railways decided on Monday to cancel 54 trains till January 15, anticipating fog in many parts of North India.
The frequency of 22 other trains has been reduced by a day, keeping in mind the safety of rail passengers.
The cancelled trains include Sealdha Express, North East Express, Begumpura Express, Lucknow Double-Decker Express, Chandigarh-Amritsar Express, Rohtak Intercity, Jaipur-Chandigarh Express, Haridwar - Amritsar Jan Shatabdi Express and Mau Express.
services of Padmavat Express from Old Delhi to Pratapgarh Junction in Uttar Pradesh and the Patna Rajdhani – which were earlier cancelled – have been restored.
“Since the visibility has been reduced due to dense fog situation, we have taken precautionary measures by announcing cancellation of these trains in advance,” said Neeraj Sharma, chief public relation officers of northern railways.
Trains whose frequency has been reduced include Sampuran Karanti Express, Chitrakoot Express, Shaktinagar - Varanasi Link Intercity Express and Jan Nayak Express among others.
“We can run only a limited number of trains on a particular section. To ensure safety and punctuality in dense fog, the railways decided to reduce the frequency of some trains,” Sharma added.
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 were running late by several hours on Monday due to bad weather
