Mumbai: The city received intermittent rains throughout Friday, which brought down the temperature slightly in the city as compared to Thursday. The showers disrupted train services on suburban line. Long-distance trains were also delayed due to rail facture caused by heavy rains. The flights at Mumbai airport in the morning also witnessed delayed by around 15 minutes. However, no major water-logging was witnessed in the city.
According to Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) of Mumbai, the city received 30.8 ml rainfall in Colaba and 26.3 ml rainfall in Santacruz. Though the maximum temperatures remained 30.8 and 31.3 degree Celsius in Santacruz and Colaba respectively, the minimum temperatures recorded were 24.2 and 24.5 degree Celsius in these areas.
Looking to introduce 160-200kmph train on the existing network, IR need to upgrade the standards for the foundation in addition to track structure.
Using heavier rails of higher UTS (strength) and Close spacing of concrete sleepers are not enough to increase the speed of trains. Soil treatment, and protection (against erosion, failure), stronger bridges etc are also required.
