The rail traffic in the rain-hit Chiplun city in Maharashtra`s Ratnagiri district could be restored by 6 pm, after a damaged track on the Konkan Railway (KR) line is repaired, an official said.

Incessant rains and resultant flooding have washed out the ballast below the railway tracks and embankment in several patches between Chiplun and Kamathe section, said LK Verma, chief spokesperson of KR. The KR suspended the traffic between Chiplun and Kamathe sections from the early hours of Thursday, as a precautionary measure after the water level in the Vashishti river

rose over the danger mark. Following this, several trains were regulated at various stations including Dadar-Sawantwadi special at Chiplun station.

Dadar-Sawantwadi Road daily special train, which had been held up at Chiplun station since Thursday (July 22) morning, is being brought back to Mumbai, as the track between Anjani and Chiplun stations declared fit for train movement, Verma said. According to railway officials, when the flood was at its peak, the water had almost touched the railway bridge and a photograph of the inundation went viral on social media.

"The forecast for restoration of Chiplun-Kamthe section of Ratnagiri region over Konkan Railway is 18.00 hrs of 23/07/2021 subject to weather conditions," the KR had said in a tweet on July 22. While the track hasn`t suffered any damage, the ballast below the tracks and embankment has been washed away in several patches due to the force of the floodwater, an official said.

July 20, the Haryana government had approved a DPR after incorporating suggestions from Railway Ministry to the submitted draft report in September 2019, the official statement said. This Detailed Project Report has been finalized by HRIDC at an estimated cost of Rs 883.78 crore. It is being said that the new Karnal-Yamunanagar rail line will act as EDFC’s feeder route, having a point of interchange with Indian Railways at Kalanaur railway station (adjoining Yamunanagar in Haryana) by providing direct railway connectivity to Panipat, Karnal as well as other parts of central Haryana.

According to the report, the existing Indian Railways route from Karnal to Yamunanagar via Ambala Cantt railway station has a route length of 121 kilometres. The comparative distance by road between the cities of Karnal and Yamunanagar is 67 kilometres. The statement further stated that with 64.6 kilometres route length, the proposed Karnal-Yamunanagar railway line will provide the shortest connectivity between these two cities in the state of Haryana as well as significantly reduce the time of travel for both, railway passengers and freight traffic. Apart from this, the Karnal-Yamunanagar new rail line project will also connect southern and western parts of Haryana directly with the holy city of Haridwar in Uttarakhand, the statement added.
