|The Pho Lu - Lao Cai train route reopens yesterday after a three-day stoppage due to landslides.|
Bad landslides early July 26 in Pho Lu in Bao Thang District, 40km from Lao Cai town, pushed 20,000 cu.m of soil along 7km of the Hanoi-Lao Cai railway route.
Company workers toiled for three days to clear the route.
But trains are still restricted to speeds of 5-10km/h on the stretch. The workers continue to clear the route so that trains can resume their normal speed of around 45km/h in next few days, Mr Nguyen Van Thang, deputy director of the company, said.
