SEC­OND IN­CI­DENT THIS MONTH

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

This is the sec­ond in­ci­dent of train dis­rup­tion this month. On April 4, over 50 trains were can­celled on trans-har­bour line af­ter an over­head wire snapped be­tween Ghan­soli and Ra­bale sta­tions, leav­ing thou­sands of pas­sen­gers stranded for over three hours. Of­fi­cials had said the dis­rup­tions were be­cause of the on­go­ing work for the con­ver­sion from Di­rect Cur­rent (DC) to Al­ter­nate Cur­rent (AC).

On Fri­day, more than 30 trains be­tween Thane and Pan­vel were can­celled, lead­ing to a chaos at Thane sta­tion. Of­fice­go­ers chose to walk on the tracks to Thane sta­tion and go Navi Mum­bai through Kurla.

“This is the sec­ond time that ser­vices were hit. I travel to Vashi for work ev­ery day. When I went to the auto stand to­day, the driver de­manded Rs600 to Rs700 which is much more than the ac­tual fare which is merely Rs300 to Rs400.”
