As the flash floods in Sukkur receded, Pakistan Railways announced on Thursday that train service on the Sukkur-Lahore route would resume on September 10.
Officials of the railways have apparently decided to start running trains again on the Lahore-Sukkur route. Additionally, routes to Rohri from Lahore, Rawalpindi, and Peshawar would be reinstated by September 10.
According to a Pakistan Railways announcement, the Khyber Mail would leave Rohri station at the scheduled hour of 5:45 am. To go to Peshawar, the train would stop through Multan, Lahore, and Rawalpindi.
It should be remembered that Pakistan Railways had suspended train service due to severe flooding in several areas of the nation.
However, as multiple tracks on several towns from Nawabshah to Rohri were still under water on Monday, train operations were reported to be delayed for an additional 10 days.
The management of Pakistan Railways made the decision to extend the suspension of regular train service for an additional 10 days. Railway tracks in a number of communities from Rohri to Tando Adam portions were reportedly flooded, according to PR officials.
The railway rails would need to be drained of floodwater for at least 10 more days, according to the officials. However, according to PR officials, up-track freight operations have resumed at a regulated speed of 10 to 20 km/h.
