On Saturday morning, Central Railway local trains ran 10 to 15 minutes behind schedule. Special maintenance work carried out by the Railways caused the delay.

Down-fast service trains leaving CST for Thane and Kalyan stations were diverted to the slow track between 8.46 am to 10.48 am. There was a mega block on Thane-Diva down fast line from 9.30 am to 11.30 am, while services were terminated on Diva-Kalyan (platform 4) Down-fast line 9.45 am-11.45 am.

Trains ran late even in the afternoon. Suresh Patil, a commuter, said, “The authorities had neither informed commuters nor was there an alert on the M-indicator app. So, trains were jam packed and I reached my destination an hour late.”

Despite repeated attempts, Narendra Patil, chief PRO, CR, remained unavailable for comment.
