Flooding last month disrupted traffic of local and outstation trains on the suburban network
The western railway (WR), along with the Vasai-Virar Municipal Corporation (VVMC), is planning to widen storm water drains in the twin cities by up to 50 metres and remove silting from the drainage system. The decision comes after the flooding of the suburban railway tracks at Vasai-Virar on July 10, where 600mm of rain was recorded.
“A survey was conducted of the drains leading to Vasai and Vaitarna creek and it was discovered that the drains were chocked due

to large settlement. Widening of the drains and immediate cleaning till the end of the creek is required,” said a senior WR official.
According to WR, the desilting of the drainage had not been carried out properly before monsoons, as a result of which water had bot been able to reach the creek. Thus, the floods occurred due to the accumulation of waste in the drains. Hydrological survey ,along with auditing of drainage system till the creek, is also being undertaken to prevent flooding of water on the railway tracks and areas adjacent to the tracks.
The flooding last month disrupted traffic of local and outstation trains on the suburban network. Around 1,500 passengers stuck in outstation trains were rescued by the National Disaster Response Team (NDRF).
