Another train mishap occurred today. Five coaches of Kurla-Ambarnath local train have been derailed and are now off-the-tracks between Kalyan and Vittalwadi. While there have been reported no injuries, Railway services on this route along the central line stand affected. While today’s mishap in Maharashtra recorded no injuries but as of now the frequencies of the train derailment is on the rise since last month.
Besides the fact that these have been no casualties, it’s a very serious incident because Mumbai suburban rail lines are the virtual lifeline of the city and this disruption will in many ways affect thousands of commuters who use these central lines to travel on daily basis.
The visuals which we’re getting from Vittalwadi tell that one of the tracks is completely cracked and broken. The reason behind this mishap is yet not revealed. The central railway team has been reached to the incident place and an investigation is going on. Yet there is no information.
According to sources, the first coach of this train got derailed. The visuals show that a poll is falling on the coach which is a very surprising part. The entire track has been broken down. The detailed investigation will begin soon.
From the commuter perspective, the people who will be traveling from Ambarnath, Vittalwadi, Ullasnagar, and Kalyan, will be affected in the morning. The only affected part is Ambarnath, Vittalwadi, and Ullasnagar.
