A small cave-in at the Jagannath Shankar Sheth (JSS) road near the northern end of Girgaum Station has pushed authorities to close the road.

The ground loss, reportedly, happened due to the ingression of water.

The road has been closed and the cave-in has been filled. Grouting from inside the station area has commenced stopping the water ingress.
