After 54 hours of repair work, railway lines in east China's Fujian Province that were cut off by torrential rainfall, have now re-opened.

The roadbed of a section of the railway line in Liancheng, which links Jiangxi and Fujian provinces, collapsed on Tuesday afternoon.

Over 1000 workers began repair work immediately to reseal the line with earth and rock. The new roadbed is now covered by plastic cloth to prevent it from further damage from rains. By Thursday evening, repair work was completed and trains were allowed to resume services. Local officials said trains will observe a speed limit of 45 kilometers per hour, until the roadbed is deemed firm enough.
