Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh, July 27 (UNI) The Puri-Haridwar 8478/8477 Kalinga Utkal Express would ply along a diverted route until July 31, Railway sources said.
Heavy rain last month in West Bengal and Orissa severely affected a few sections of the South Eastern Railway and train movement is yet to be normalised. The Utkal Exp, which goes via Khadagpur had to be cancelled on some days as the Kharagpur-Bhadrak line was damaged.
