train traffic was affected following a massive landslide on the track on July 16. The authorities had deployed machinery at the spot to clear the landslide from the track.
Mangaluru Area Manager Shivraj S Managiri said that debris was removed and the collapsed retaining wall was broken to restore the track. Steep hill walls in the surroundings were being tapered down to prevent further landslides. The damaged electricity poles and cables too were also restored, he added.
Following the landslide, train services were affected on Konkan route. A few of the trains were terminated at Surathkal. The buses were arranged to ferry passengers travelling in trains to Surathkal.
The Railways had to divert some of the long-distance trains between Kerala and the North either via Salem and Jolarpettai or via Padil, Hassan and Madgaon during the last two days.

water remains stagnant in the underpass every year. Several vehicles get stuck in water every year. Today, my auto was stuck in water while ferrying passengers on the stretch. We have to use the underpass to connect to National Highway 66. The authorities have not taken any measures to facilitate the easy flow of water on the stretch,” rued Jayanth, an auto driver Jayanth.
The IMD has issued a red alert in Dakshina Kannada, Udupi districts as heavy rains are likely to lash the region. The water-level in rivers Nethravathi, Kumaradhara, and Phalguni have increased considerably. Sea erosion too has intensified in Someshwara and Ullal beaches in the district.

electric loco-hauled trains, the stretch up to at least Kumta would be ready to take electric loco-hauled trains.
KRCL has completed electrification of the line between Thokur and Bijur (105 km), while work on the line between Bijur and Kumta (75 km) is in the final stages of completion. Kumta station has three lines with loco reversal facility.
As such, loco change from electric to diesel for onward journey towards Mumbai is possible at that station, according to KRCL officials.
CRS (Southern Circle), K.A. Manoharan is scheduled to conduct the inspection of the track between Mangaluru and Jokatte between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday. A speed trial run would be conducted on the section during the inspection and Southern Railway’s Palakkad Division has cautioned the general public not to approach the railway line during the period.
Southern Railway has spent ₹ 20 crore for the electrification of the 13.147 route km or 25.429 track km line between Mangaluru Junction and Jokatte being taken up by its construction wing. While work on the 110 kV substation at Jokatte has been completed, Southern Railway is awaiting energising of the line by Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Ltd.
Mangaluru Junction-Jokatte electrification was part of the Shoranur-Mangaluru (328 km) electrification project. With the completion of work, the line right from Thiruvananthapuram till KRCL border at Thokur gets electrified. Electric loco-hauled goods and passenger trains are already running between Mangaluru Junction/ Mangaluru Central towards the South, including Chennai, with the first electric loco-hauled train running from Mangaluru Central on April 1, 2017 (Train No 12686, Mangaluru Central-Chennai Central Superfast Express).
