Trains on Mumbai’s central railway line were delayed after a portion of the tracks between Kalyan and Thakurli stations was damaged—the second such incident this week.

Trains were diverted to a slow track after a “fracture” was spotted at around 7am, delaying services by 15 to 20 minutes. Services were restored by 8.32 am.

“My train halted at Kalyan station for 10 minutes. It got delayed by 15 minutes. Railway fractures are very common these days between Kalyan and Thakurli stations. Railway authorities should figure out some permanent solution to it,” said Maya Surve, 32, who was travelling to Mumbai in a fast local from Vitthalwadi railway station.

“There was a disruption in the fast track line which got restored,” said a railway officer of Kalyan railway station.

On April 25, a crack between Kalyan and Thakurli stations had held up trains on the central line for over 20 minutes.
