Bihar floods disrupt rail, road traffic


Kolkata, India: Waters have submerged railway tracks and national highways in flood-affected parts of Bihar, disrupting rail and road travel.

The train service between Muzaffarpur and Narkatiyaganj has been halted due to flood water overtopping the rail track at East Central Railway’s Sugauli station, DD News reports.

As a result of the submerged tracks, six trains have been canceled today, including the Raxaul – Muzaffarpur express and the Manduadih – Muzaffarpur express.

Due to the increasing overflowing tendency of the Gandak river near rail bridge number 248 located between Sagauli and Majhaulia stations on the Muzaffarpur – Paniahawa section of the East- Central Railway’s Samastipur division, many pairs of special trains have been canceled, short-terminated, and redirected.

Vehicular movement on the Araria – Kishanganj National Highways has been halted, due to a diversion overtopping.

In addition, traffic has been disrupted in the districts of Sitamarhi, Sheohar, East, and West Champaran.

Meanwhile, following the discharge of 1.91 lakh cubic meters of water from the Ganak barrage in Valmiki Nagar, flood water is spreading in the low parts of East and West Champaran districts.
