Panaji: Traffic on the Konkan Railway route was again paralysed on Wednesday morning due to waterlogging inside a tunnel at Pernem in Goa, leading to the cancellation and diversion of some trains, officials said.

Train traffic on the Konkan Railway route was affected since 2.35 pm on Tuesday due to "water oozing out in the Pernem tunnel between Madure-Pernem section," Konkan Railway Corporation (KRCL) Deputy General Manager Baban Ghatge said.

The waterlogging was removed and traffic clearance was given at 10.13 pm on Tuesday, he said.

However, the same issue reoccurred at 2.59 am on Wednesday with a higher intensity, the official said.

In view of this, few trains have been cancelled and diverted from the Konkan Railway route, he said.
