Pakistan Railways extended the suspension of train service from Karachi for an additional 10 days due to damage to the train tracks from Nawabshah to Khairpur.

Customers who paid advance booking fees will be reimbursed by the department.

Details indicate that flooding has caused the train service from Karachi to be suspended for the previous 27 days. Until the end of September, the operation would be largely restored, according to railroad authorities.

According to officials, train tracks from Nawabshah to Khairpur have begun to dry out in some places, but from Paddidan to Bojeri, the track is waterlogged.

The 366 km track from Paddidan to Bhirya Road Station is totally dry. While train service between Bojeri and Paddidan can be resumed at a 15 km/h caution speed.

The department is evaluating the track conditions between Ran Pathani and Khairpur.

Eight more express trains will now run to Rohri, according to the railways, weeks after they were suspended due to the severe monsoon rains that caused flooding in the Sindh region.

According to Railways, eight trains will be allowed to travel from Peshawar, Lahore, Faisalabad, and Rawalpindi to Rohri. The trains included Karachi Express, Karakoram Express, Fareed Express, Business train, Allama Iqbal Express, Green Line, Tezgam, and Jaffar Express.
