Local train services on Central Railway’s (CR) Main and Harbour line will be affected on Sunday, due to the mega block, as maintenance work will be conducted from 11:30 am to 5 pm. “On main line, block will be taken on CSMT-bound slow line between Kalyan-Thane from 11.20am to 3.50pm. CSMT slow line services will not be available at Thakurli, Kopar, Mumbra and Kalva stations during this period,” a CR spokesperson told a leading portal.
The Central Railway has announced that special services will be run between Panvel and Kurla (Platform No.8) during the block period. Harbour line passengers are asked to travel via Main Line and Western Railway from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm.
“Due to these blocks, suburban trains are likely to be more crowded than usual. Passengers are requested not to take any risks while travelling. They are also requested to avoid travelling on foot board, roof top of locals and not to board extremely over crowded trains. These maintenance mega blocks are essential for infrastructure upkeep and safety,” the Railways said. Read more
