Suburban locals on Western line running with "minor delays"


Western Railway's suburban services are running normal with minor delay owing to low visibility due to rains. 

Mumbai Rains Updates: The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Saturday predicted "heavy to very heavy rainfall" for Mumbai and adjoining areas on Sunday and Monday.

The Colaba observatory for the island city has recorded a rainfall of 70 mm in the last 24 hours ended on Saturday morning, which is higher compared to the quantum of rains recorded by the Santacruz centre.

"Heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely for the next two days in the city and its adjoining areas," said IMD Chief PRO Vishambhar Singh. The IMD has predicted a cloudy weather for this period.

Meanwhile, trains ran on time on the Main and Western lines of the Central Railway (CR) and Western Railway (WR) on Saturday, with no untoward incident being reported.

"Trains running between Churchgate and Dahanu stations are on time," said WR Chief PRO Ravindra Bhakar. Sources from the CR informed that trains are running normally.

On Wednesday, the services of the CR, including the main and Harbour lines, and the Western Line were paralysed due to very heavy rains in a short span of time, causing inundation of tracks and influx of water from the Mithi river.

Meanwhile, traffic on western, southern, northern and eastern suburbs of Mumbai remained normal on Saturday with no report of any congestion, according to Mumbai Traffic Police officials.
