CHAGAI: The railway service between Pakistan and Iran has been completely restored after the repair of track damaged by heavy floods and torrential rains.

The track between Ahmedwall and Quetta section was repaired after almost two months, making the Quetta-Zahedan section fully operational.

A Pakistan Railways official told Dawn that more than one hundred breaches, along with a damaged bridge in Ahmedwall, were repaired.

The service was suspended on July 29 as heavy rains followed by floods damaged the track in Chagai, Noshki, Mastung and Quetta districts.

However, the train service was partially restored till Dalbandin on Aug 18 to allow freight trains carrying relief goods for flood-hit people to proceed, the official added.
