Local train services on Mumbai’s Central and Harbour line were disrupted due to a technical snag affecting thousands of commuters heading home during rush hour.

Local train services on Mumbai’s Central line were disrupted for some time on Wednesday bringing to a standstill the city’s lifeline due to snapping of a power cable.

The technical snag that occurred between CST and Masjid brought the train services connecting the city to a stop and caused severe inconvenience to thousands of commuters heading home at peak hour.

The culprit behind the hard time suffered by thousands of commuters from 5.40 pm to 6.45 pm was a single cable that spans across all six lines. This got entangled to the pantograph of an Asangaon-bound fast train between Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) and Masjid Bunder.

“The pantograph got entangled and so there was problem. The trains began running at 6.45pm,” said V Malegaonkar, chief PRO, CR.

By 6.45pm the repairs had been carried out and the authorities managed to run the first slow local for Dombivili on the main line. Around the same time Harbour trains to Panvel were also started.

During this time, train services were being run between Dadar to Kalyan/Karjat/Kasara and from Wadala back to Andheri/Panvel.

“The train services finaly began running properly by 8.15pm. But nearly 60 suburban services could be canceleld till midnight,” said a CR official.

Further details are awaited.
