Train services on the Konkan Railway route were held up for more then two hours on Friday afternoon due to mud slide because of heavy rain, near Kankavali station.

The incident occurred between Kanakavali and Oros stations, at around 12.45pm. Konkan Railway sources said no train was passing from the spot at the time of incident.

Four trains including Bikaner-Koiembtur were held up because of the incident at various stations. The Konkan Railway spokesperson said that the track is likely to be open for traffic soon.

The Konkan Railway route is known as one of the difficult terrains, especially during monsoon. Hence, special monsoon timetables are implemented on the route, besides restricting speed.
