Sullia: Train services between Bengaluru and Mangaluru will resume after removal of a boulder that was precariously placed and would likely to have fallen on the railway tracks, at Manibanda on the Subramanya-Sakleshpur route.

As many as 80 labourers are involved in the work of blasting the boulder and clearing the debris despite of the bad weatherand the same might be completed in three to four days.

Currently officials are blasting the boulder using a compressor in both day and night shifts. The pace of the work is however affected due to the rains and lack of visibility at night.

Sources also informed that the fuel for the machines, food for officials and the workmen is being taken through trolley from Nettana Subramanya Road railway station.
