Ludhiana, January 18

The railways have further extended the cancellation of seven pairs of trains passing through the city till February 15 due to dense fog and adverse weather conditions prevailing in most parts of North India. The trains which are to remain off the tracks for yet another month are 12053/54 Haridwar-Amritsar-Haridwar Janshatabdi Express, 12241/42 Chandigarh-Amritsar-Chandigarh Express, 14631/32 Dehradun-Amritsar-Dehradun Express, 14505/06 Nangal-Amritsar-Nangal Express, 14501/02 Bathinda-Jammu-Bathinda Weekly Express, 14605/06 Haridwar-Jammu-Haridwar Weekly Express and 14713/14 Sriganganagar-Jammu-Sriganganagar Weekly Express.

The 14681/82 New Delhi-Jalandhar-New Delhi Intercity Express, which was also cancelled on December 16 last year, has been partially restored. The train will have a truncated run between Ambala Cantt and New Delhi till further orders. Similarly, 12237/38 Varanasi-Jammu-Varanasi Begumpura Express will partially operate on review of weather and operational constrains on daily basis.
