18 trains cancelled due to fog in north India


New Delhi, Dec 29: As dense fog continues to engulf north India, train services remain affected in Delhi. North-western plains, including Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and West Uttar Pradesh, were covered under dense fog Friday morning.
At least Delhi-bound 18 trains were cancelled, 35 delayed and five rescheduled due to dense fog in many parts of northern India on Friday.
Come winter and all north-bound trains get delayed for hours due to poor visibility during foggy weather, causing a ripple effect on the congested network. The dense fog forces drivers to slow down train speeds up to 15 kmph as a safety requirement — resulting in delays ranging between four and 22 hours.
