WR suburban services halted for 30 minutes to inspect subway condition

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.
