Train operations on Western Railway’s suburban line were stopped for about half an hour on Sunday after the Railways was informed by a commuter about “soil erosion” at a subway between Khar and Santacruz stations, an official said.

Railway traffic was stopped for some time and engineers checked the subway thoroughly before giving it the all clear, a WR tweet informed.

Suburban trains started plying on the Up and Down Harbour route at 5:45pm and on the Fast and Slow corridor between 5:50pm and 5:52pm, a WR official said.

WR is in the process of inspecting bridges above its tracks as part of a safety audit that was ordered by Railway Minister Piyush Goyal following the collapse of a portion of a bridge at Andheri station on July 3.
