Trains and platforms remained crowded as trains reached CST after a gap of 30 minutes. Motormen too were unable to speed beyond 30 kmph due to low visibility. The situation normalised after 9.30am. “The trains were running at a snail’s pace. We could only hope that we would reach office on time,” said Amar Bhanushali, a resident of Kalyan.
WR trains were affected beyond Vasai-Virar belt but the ongoing Gujjar agitation further escalated the problem. Outstation trains arriving in Mumbai were running 10 hours late. The WR diverted 46 long distance trains on Monday.
