CANCELLATION OF TRAINS FOR FOG IN NORTHERN INDIA FROM JANUARY TO MARCH 2016
Due to prediction of fog from January to first week of March 2016 and experience from previous years of fog across the country causing untold sufferings to the commuters, it has been decided to cancel some of the north bound trains originating from East Coast Railway jurisdiction.
As per the experience from previous years, dense fog continues during the period across the country and it descends more heavily in the Northern and North-Western regions of the country. Cold wave is likely to sweep through the country during the period. In view of dense fog and poor visibility which is reduced to less than 50 meters in late night & early morning hours and 150 meters in day time, train operations are badly affected every year. Not only Railway communication but also other road and air communication in northern part of India is also hampered.
The following trains originating and terminating from East Coast Railway jurisdiction will remain cancelled as per the followings:
12807/12808 Visakhapatnam-Nizamuddin-Visakhapatnam Samata Express via Rayagada-Titilagarh & Raipur will be cancelled from Visakhapatnam on every Wednesdays between 13th January to 24th February 2015 and from Nizamuddin on every Fridays between 15th January to 26th February 2015.
