Heavy rainfall and thunderstorms in the city have crippled the Western Railway’s harbour local train services operating between Andheri to CST. A tree fall between Santacruz and Vile Parle station at 2.40pm resulted in an Over Head Equipment (OHE) breakdown.
Currently, the Western Railway Harbour line services are only operating till Bandra, and the restoration work of the OHE is going on.
Meanwhile, Western Railway services were delayed by 10 minutes and Central Railway local train services are currently operating without any delay. The remaining harbour local trains are also operating without any delay.
The city has been facing heavy rains since late afternoon. With forecast of heavy to very heavy rains in the city over the next 72 hours, railways is keeping a close eye on possible disruptions in their services. Last month, the city was paralysed as all the three railway line services were suspended after a deluge.
