Commuters travelling on Mumbai’s harbour line witnessed prolonged delays on Tuesday afternoon due to a rail fracture between Dockyard Road and Reay Road stations.

The rail fracture was reported around 12:25 pm, following which rail services towards CST came to a halt. The disruption affected trains running in the down direction on the CST-Kurla route.

Later, around 1:18 pm, Central Railway announced that work on restoring services was underway.

“Rail fracture between Dockyard Road and Reay Road on Dn harbour line from 1225 hrs. Work is underway to restore ASAP,” the announcement from CR’s official Twitter handle read.

The disruption was caused due a missing piece of rail track between Dockyard Road and Reay Road stations.

Harbour line carries the lowest number of passengers among the city’s three suburban corridors. However, it witnesses regular disruptions due to its dated infrastructure.

Update: Harbour line services resumed at 2:05 pm after a gap of almost one hour and forty minutes. Meanwhile, trains plying towards CST are still running late by 10-15 minutes.
