Train services on Howrah-Kharagpur and Kharagpur-Chakradharpur sections of South Eastern Railway (SER) were restored on Monday after two days of disruption due to a rail traffic block for installing girders of a road overbridge near Bagnan station.
Officials at SER headquarters, Calcutta, said all three girders at Bagnan on Howrah-Kharagpur section were installed on Sunday.
“Work was executed well before deadline,” said an official.
Sources at Tatanagar enquiry counter confirmed all Howrah-bound trains, including Steel Superfast Express and Janshatabdi Express ran on schedule on Monday.
Railway sources said passengers bound for Tatanagar and Kharagpur, who were on Mumbai-Howrah Mail, Pune-Howrah Azad Hind Express and LTT-Howrah Jnaneswari Express were told during the journey that the trains would get diverted on Sunday.
Nearly 350 of these passengers got down at Chakradharpur on Sunday. A special train, which ran between Chakradharpur and Kharagpur, ferried 300 to their destinations. The rest were put up in Jagdalpur-Howrah Express.
