All railway lines between CSMT-Masjid Bunder will remain closed for train traffic during the block which will start at 11 pm on November 19 and end at 2 am on November 21. Check full list of affected trains below

INDIAN RAILWAYS UPDATE: The Central Railway (CR) has announced a 27-hour special traffic and power blocks from November 19 night for demolition of the dilapidated British-era Carnac Bridge between Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) and Masjid Bunder on its suburban line. The block will involve UP and DN Local Lines, UP and DN Fast Lines and UP and DN Harbour Lines between CSMT-Masjid Station. It will affect the movement of long-distance as well as local trains.

Though the block is for 27 hours, suburban local services and long-distance train movement on the main line between CSMT and Byculla will remain closed for 17 hours — from 11 pm on November 19 to 4 pm on November 20, said Central Railway chief PRO Shivaji Sutar.

The yard line will remain shut for full 27 hours.

37 LAKH DAILY LOCAL TRAIN COMMUTERS TO BE AFFECTED

The special block is likely to affect more than 37 lakh daily local train commuters as well as those traveling by outstation trains. More than 1,800 local train services operate on the Central Railway’s Mumbai suburban network comprising `Harbour’ and `Main’ lines that originate from CSMT in south Mumbai.

MUMBAI CIVIC BODY TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL BUS SERVICES

During the block period, suburban local services on the main line will originate from and end at Byculla, Parel, Dadar and Kurla, while those on Harbour line will originate from and end at Wadala Road station, Sutar said.

he frequency of local trains will be lower than usual, he added.

Municipal corporations in the Mumbai region would be providing additional bus services during this period. Air-conditioned train services will not run on November 20 too.

PARTIAL DEMOLITION OF CARNAC BRIDGE STARTED IN SEPTEMBER

Built in 1866-67, Carnac Bridge was declared unsafe by an expert team of the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT-B) in 2018, though the movement of heavy vehicles had already been stopped in 2014.

Partial demolition of the bridge began after it was closed for traffic completely in September this year. The new bridge to replace it will be constructed by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation.
