Sunday Train Cancellations Spark Commuter Woes

The abrupt cancellation of suburban trains along the Chennai Beach-Tambaram-Chengalpattu route on Sundays has left commuters stranded and frustrated. With 44 trains halted for maintenance purposes, passengers are left scrambling for alternative transportation options such as autorickshaws and the Metro Rail, significantly inconveniencing their travel plans.

While the Railways justify these cancellations for routine maintenance, commuters advocate for more considerate scheduling, suggesting that line blocks could be conducted during nighttime to minimize disruption during peak travel hours. Residents urge authorities to address the persisting issues promptly, emphasizing the need for improved infrastructure and timely repairs to ensure smoother commuting experiences for all.
