Two landslides have happened at a tunnel on the North-South railway route, disrupting services.

The first landslide occurred at around 1 pm on Friday at Bai Gio Tunnel at Deo Ca Pass running through Dai Lanh Commune in the southern central province of Khanh Hoa. Around 100 cubic metres of soil and stone fell onto the tunnel, blocking its entrance.

Train SE8, which was transporting 300 passengers from Hanoi to HCM City, had to stop at Tuy Hoa Station in Phu Yen Province. The Vietnam Railway Corporation had to provide vehicles to transport the passengers to train SE5 to continue the trip.

The tunnel was cleared at around 4 am on Saturday, but just 30 minutes later, another landslide was reported at the tunnel. Workers are focusing on dealing with the incident.

It is unsure when the tunnel repairs will be completed.
