let’s say that Kangra Valley Railway, Pathankot – Nurpur – Kangra – Baijnath provides narrow gauge rail connectivity from Paprola – Joginder Nagar. In this monsoon season, Kangra Valley received unprecedented heavy rainfall. As a result, landslides, rockslides and cloudbursts led to a flood-like situation, due to which this railway line was badly affected. As a preventive measure and keeping in view the history of flash floods, the operation of trains on this railway line had to be suspended with effect from July 14, 2022.

There is a bridge number 32 between Dalhousie Road and Nurpur on the Chakki River. Accidental floods in the Chakki river on July 31 resulted in damage to the bases and pillar no. 3 to protect the bridge structure. Due to the flood, there were cracks on the upper well cap of pillar number 3 of this bridge. The incident took place in the last few years due to de-grading of the bed of Chakki river and rapid decline of the bed level of the river.

The General Manager, Northern Railway had held a meeting with the Chief Secretary of Punjab in this regard on August 16, 2022. A meeting was also requested on behalf of the General Manager of Northern Railway with the Chief Secretary of Himachal Pradesh for smooth conduct of the repair works on this section.

On August 20, 2022, there was also an incident of cloudburst in this area, due to which a lot of water came in the river at a very high speed.

Five pillars of the bridge were washed away from morning till evening due to the strong current of water and some others became unsafe.
