INDIAN RAILWAYS UPDATE: Mumbai and its adjoining areas continue to receive heavy showers on Thursday, resulting in water-logging at a number of places including railway tracks, which slowed the movement of trains and vehicles on roads. The Central Railway and Western Railway officials said the local trains were operating “normally”, but a number of passengers, mostly office-goers, took to social media and complained that the suburban services were running late by at least 15-20 minutes.

While there was no water-logging on rail tracks in Mumbai, a small portion of a wall collapsed between Masjid and Sandhurst Road stations in south Mumbai on the down (north-bound) track of the Harbour Line, affecting train operations on the route for some time, a Central Railway official said.

CR also took two-hour emergency block from 2 pm to 4 pm on the Harbour Line between CSMT and Wadala Road to remove and secure the dilapidated structure near Masjid Station.

In a meeting on Wednesday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde directed Railway authorities and the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) administration to appoint a nodal officer for coordination between them and for dissemination of information about water-logging and disruption of suburban train services in Mumbai, a statement from the chief minister’s office (CMO) said.

During the meeting held for reviewing preparedness for dealing with any eventuality arising out of the monsoon, the CM asked the railway machinery to remain alert and coordinate with the BMC, said the statement.

The local train services, considered as the lifeline of Mumbai, were affected mainly on the main and harbour corridors of the Central Railway due to water- logging on tracks near Kurla, slowing down train movement.
