HCMC – Repair work on the Chi Thanh railway tunnel has been extended indefinitely following another landslide, delaying the resumption of normal railway services.

The resumption of the Chi Thanh railway tunnel has encountered significant challenges due to obstructions from previous repairs and a substantial mass of soil and rocks from the latest landslide.

Originally, the repair was scheduled to be completed by May 26. However, the new landslide has caused further delays, pushing back the completion date to an undetermined time.

Over the past few days, more than one hundred workers and numerous vehicles have been mobilized to expedite the tunnel repair.

The Chi Thanh railway tunnel, about 325 meters long, had already seen 300 meters of its shell reinforced. However, during the demolition of the old tunnel shell on May 21, a landslide occurred, involving an estimated 260 cubic meters of soil and rocks.

This incident has disrupted North-South railway services, with train passengers being transported by cars from Tuy Hoa to La Hai stations. Meanwhile, freight train operations have been halted.
