The double-decker Uday Express, which was scheduled to be flagged off at 11:30 am on 26 August by Minister of State Railways Suresh Angadi, has been postponed due to the demise of Arun Jaitley. In a press release by East Coast Railway, it was stated, “The Ministry of Railways decided to introduce the train No. 22701/22702 Visakhapatnam-Vijayawada-Visakhapatnam Double Decker Uday Express for five days a week.” The release also revealed the schedule and time table of Uday Express between Vizag and Vijayawada.
