A goods train derailed on the road-cum-rail bridge across River Godavari here Sunday evening. As a result, rail traffic on the bridge has been suspended. Railway authorities are taking steps to put the derailed bogie on the track.
The train was proceeding to Ourangabad from Visakhapatnam when the derailment took place.
Meanwhile, rail traffic has been diverted through the Godavari railway station. This has resulted in the trains running late.
Rajahmundry railway station manager B S Sastry said the trafffic would be resumed the road-cum-rail bridge soon after the derailed bogie is placed on the track.
