Sunday saw a 9km-long snarl on the old Mumbai Pune highway as revellers headed to Lonavla for a monsoon break. The rush also affected traffic along the Mumbai-Pune Expressway which passes through Lonavla. Those returning to Mumbai after a weekend holiday were inconvenienced.
Rain didn't let up in Lonavla either with the popular hill station receiving a whopping 71mm on Sunday . Since June 1, Lonavla has recorded 1,432mm rainfall, over three times of what it received during the same period last year (457mm in 2016).

to other spots like Tiger Point, Lion's Point, Shivaling and Rajmachi point. Besides the regular tourists spots, the hill station's narrow lanes too saw considerable congestion. Gidhad lake, and Karla, Bhaja and Bedse caves too saw heavy footfalls over the weekend. Scores of passengers were inconvenienced on Sunday as many longdistance trains towards Gujarat on Western Railway were delayed, regulated or diverted due to heavy rain in the Mehsana-Palanpur section since Saturday night.
Bandra Terminus and Dadar stations saw huge crowds as passengers waited for trains rescheduled on Sunday.
WR chief public relations officer Ravinder Bhakar said, “Fifteen trains were stopped and detained on the section as restoration work was in progress. The heavy rainfall resulted in soil cut and a major problem at four locations (level-crossings) en route. Staff sent for restoration work also faced difficulties due to continuous and heavy rainfall in the area.“
It had a cascading effect and trains leaving Mumbai on Sunday were delayed. Some trains from Ahmedabad to Ajmer and Abu Road were cancelled. “The incessant rain was a big challenge for our staff to carry out restoration work,“ said Bhakar.The affected sections were, however, cleared at the earliest and services resumed.“We delivered breakfast, water and other essential commodities to passengers of stranded trains, especially to passengers of 12915 Ashram Exp and 14707 Bikaner-Bandra (T) Ranakpur Exp,“ he said.
It is learnt that more than 1,000 food packets, 850 biscuit packets and 500 pouches of drinking water were supplied to the stranded passengers. The trains regulated and diverted were 12480 Bandra (T)-Jodhpur Exp (terminated at Mehsana); 14708 Bandra (T)-Bikaner Ranakpur Exp (regulated at Ahmedabad); 19707 Bandra (T)-Jaipur Aravali Exp (diverted via VadodaraRatlam-Nagda); 19027 Bandra (T)-Jammu Tawi (regulated at Mehsana and diverted via Ahmedabad-AnandGodhra); 12989 Dadar-Ajmer (regulated at Sabarmati and diverted via Ahmed abad).

is no need to panic. Firstly , it was not a part of the tracks, but an iron rod. We feel it has fallen from a construction site nearby .Repair and construction work is on at a bridge,“ the official said. This is the fifth incident in the Mumbai metropolitan region this year.
A senior railway official, who did not wish to be named, said that in many cases, there are drug addicts who loiter close to the tracks in search of pieces of metal.“They sell of the metal as scrap to get money for narcotic drugs.

Passenger satisfaction for Tejas Express has been high, but many say that the entertainment and catering services need to improve on the train, which began its run on the Mumbai-Karmali route from May 22.
Commuter feedback data from 243 passengers on May 27 and 28 revealed a high level of satisfaction across all categories of services.
However, 47 of the 243 feedback forms described the entertainment services as “average“. “Although many passengers have given `excellent' and `very good' rating, we feel that more content in the form of music and films need to

be provided. We have also taken note of the fact that many demanded disposable earphones for reasons of hygiene,“ a senior official said.
Catering services remain an area of concern as 33 people billed it as “average“. The official said, “Even for cate ring the feedback is excellent, but we need to consider introducing local cuisine to suit the taste buds of passengers.Also, some items can be provided on payment.“
Washroom services were appreciated, but some sug gested that they should be cleaned on a regular basis.
A senior official said, “We have decided to make frequent announcements, especially about the dos and don'ts, so that passengers also cooperate as far as littering, usage of toilets, handing of entertainment gadgets, etc is concerned.“
Officials said automaticdoor closure was also an issue so frequent announcements will be made henceforth on the platform as well as on trains to ensure that nobody get stranded.
Moreover, many passengers want the train to depart later from CST. “Many , especially those in the western suburbs, want the train to depart from CST at 5.30am instead of 5am so that they can come to Dadar station by a local train to board it.“
Tejas, which boasts of a maximum speed of 200 kmph, has speed restrictions en route and reaches Goa in eight and a half hours.
