Nacala Logistics has announced that it has suspended passenger train services between Limbe in Blantyre and Balaka District for nine days to pave the way for maintenance works.
It says the passenger train will not operate between Monday, January 18, and Tuesday, January 26.
However, according to Nacala Logistics statement released in today’s The Daily Times newspaper, services between Balaka and Nayuchi in Machinga District would not be interrupted.
“The change in the passenger train has been necessitated to allow our maintenance team to work on Shire North Bridge in Balaka on the said days,” the statement reads.
It indicates, for example, that the passenger train will depart Balaka for Nayuchi and back today. On January 28, the passenger train will depart Balaka for Limbe, marking the resumption of services after maintenance.
