ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Railways has suspended several train services in Sindh as massive floods washed away rail tracks at various spots.

In the recent orders, the authorities were directed to put off the booking of trains until October 20 as operations of several coaches including Shalimar Express, Shah Hussain Express, Tezgam Express, and Awam Express have been stopped.

The development comes as officials warned that flood water on the track can lead to major accidents while maintenance of the track signals system and bridges is underway.

Meanwhile, a notification has been issued to all reservation offices and divisional commercial officers, while passengers who have booked various trains will be given full refunds.
