TVC : Train accident averted

According to information available, the railway authorities received information at about 0010 hours that about 50 metres of the track was damaged due to flood waters which forced them to detain the superfast train at Kurukutty to avoid any mishap.

The sources said the repairing of railway track was progressing on a war-footage and it was expected that the train traffic would resume normally by evening.
While the Kannur-Ernakulam Express and the Guruvayoor-Ernakulam Passenger trains were cancelled, the Thiruvananthapuram-Shoranur and Ernakulam-Shoranur passenger were cancelled partially, a release said here.
