Due to several rails being submerged under flood water from Nawabshah to Rohri, Pakistan Railway (PR) will continue to prohibit passenger train operations.

PR representatives informed the media that the flood waters would recede within the following 10 days, allowing for repairs and eventually the restoration of operations. They continued by saying that freight van operations had restarted on a few tracks, although at a modest 10 to 20 km/hr pace.

According to a recent estimate, PR has been experiencing daily losses of almost Rs. 100 million as a result of the country’s widespread flooding caused by the unrelenting monsoon rains.

According to a senior PR official, the rain and flooding have destroyed multiple railway tracks, putting a stop to operations across the whole nation.

In order to allow for rail restoration, the department has announced the suspension of five express trains on the Main Line-1 (ML-1). The passengers were advised to go to the nearest PR office to request refunds for their previously purchased tickets.

According to Federal Minister for Railways and Aviation Saad Rafique, PR will receive 230 new passenger coaches by December 2022. These coaches will reportedly include a number of contemporary conveniences and be capable of speeds of up to 160 kilometres per hour.

According to the PR spokeswoman, the department will initially import 46 contemporary passenger coaches from China and manufacture 184 additional coaches at the Carriage Factory in Islamabad. Similar to how PR will first produce 620 vans locally and import 200 cargo vans.

In addition, each passenger coach will feature 30 parlour cars, 20 vans for luggage and braking, and 80 compartments for the economy and air-conditioned class.
