Pakistan-Iran Train Service Halts: Track Damage in Balochistan Disrupts Cross-Border Rail Connectivity

Train Service

Train services between Pakistan and Iran came to a standstill due to heavy rains in Dalbandin city, Balochistan, causing flooding and destruction.

The district administration reported that rainwater submerged streets, including the railway track, leading to the suspension of train operations. Dalbandin, the Chagai district headquarters, faced extensive damage, with numerous homes destroyed and infrastructure compromised.

The heavy rains, affecting Dalbandin, Sargisha, and Chattar, occurred on Sunday night, causing destruction to standing crops in rural areas.

The resultant damage displaced several families, prompting the district administration to initiate dewatering operations and provide tents and sheets to those affected.

Simultaneously, the Pakistan Meteorological Department issued a forecast indicating the entry of a new westerly wind system into the country on Monday.

This weather system was anticipated to bring rain and snow to various regions over the next three days. Upper Punjab, upper Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Islamabad, Kashmir, and Gilgit Baltistan were identified as areas likely to experience precipitation.

The Meteorological Department’s projections included expected rainfall in 28 districts of Balochistan until March 13, exacerbating the challenges faced by the province following earlier rain-related incidents this month.

The situation underscored the need for ongoing relief efforts, including dewatering operations and the provision of essential supplies to the affected population.

As Pakistan braces for the impact of the new weather system, efforts by local authorities and meteorological agencies remain crucial in managing the aftermath of heavy rains and safeguarding the affected communities.

The suspension of train service serves as a tangible consequence of the weather-induced disruptions, highlighting the vulnerability of infrastructure during such meteorological events.
