Indian Railways trains running via Kanpur, including some that ply on arterial routes, would see major changes in direction from today till 29 of the next month.
Due to persisting fog, the rail department has affected major changes in the directions of some trains running through Kanpur, starting from today till February 29.
The Shram Shakti Express and Reverse Shatabdi- important for the passengers of Kanpur- have been closed for operation for two and three days in a week, respectively.
“Due to foggy conditions, some of the trains running through NCR will remain non-operational completely till February 29,” according to a statement issued by the NCR Railway.
These include Sampoorna Kranti Express, Allahabad-Haridwar Express, Agra Intercity Express, Chhapra Express and Ujjaini Express.
The Reverse Shatabdi that travels from Kanpur to Delhi six days a week will now be operational for only three days a week and would not operate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, it said.
Likewise, the Shram Shakti Express which runs from Kanpur to Delhi, will not travel from Kanpur on Monday and Thursday and on the reverse route, it will remain non-operational from Delhi on Tuesday and Friday.
The Swarna Shatabdi Express that plies on the Lucknow-Delhi route via Kanpur will not run on Monday and Thursday.
Apart from this, routes of certain trains have been changed while some would be called back from half of the routes, the statement reads.
This is because in case, the operation of a train is affected due to fog, the remaining travel for the current day would be canceled so that the trains can run on time the next day, the statement said.
