A crack on a railway track at Melpettai between Olakkur and Kiliyanur disrupted train services on this sector for about two hours on Saturday.

When the Villupuram–Chennai Passenger was passing through the place, the engine driver noticed the crack and alerted the officials at the Tindivanam railway station.

The Mumbai–Madurai Kurla Express and the Puducherry–Chennai Pudhuvai Express were detained at Olakkur and allowed to go after the track was replaced. — Special Correspondent
