Jayanagar-Janakpur-Bangaha train service resumes

Kathmandu: Following a temporary suspension due to the Lok Sabha elections in India, the Jayanagar-Janakpur-Bangaha train service has resumed operations today, bringing relief to commuters and travelers in the region. The closure, which was implemented as a precautionary measure during the election period, has now been lifted, allowing normal train services to resume.

The decision to restart train services comes after the conclusion of elections in India’s Madhubani and Sitamarhi districts, which share borders with Nepal’s Mahottari and Dhanusha districts, respectively. With the electoral process completed, authorities have greenlit the resumption of cross-border train operations, facilitating connectivity between the two nations.

The Nepal Railway Company Limited, responsible for overseeing railway operations in the country, had previously announced the closure of train services from May 18 to 20 through a public notice. This temporary halt was part of coordinated efforts to ensure the safety and smooth conduct of elections in the bordering regions.

The resumption of train services signifies a return to normalcy and underscores the importance of cross-border transportation links in fostering regional connectivity and cooperation. As the train service resumes its regular schedule, travelers can once again enjoy the convenience and efficiency of railway travel between Jayanagar, Janakpur, and Bangaha. Stay tuned for any further updates regarding the operation of this vital transport route.
