Tiruchi Railway Division replaced the old brick bridge no.50 near Thiruvennainallur railway station with two RCC boxes on Wednesday. Due to line block in connection with the work, two passenger trains were partially cancelled between Vriddhachalam and Villupuram, and four trains were diverted from Vriddhachalam via Cuddalore Port and Villupuram. Over 100 staff were deployed and heavy machinery was put into use for completion of the work. Replacement of this bridge with RCC boxes would enhance flow of water to the adjoining fields, a Southern Railway release said.
