Mumbai: In order to facilitate the installation of a Thick Web Switch at Vasai Road station, Western Railway has scheduled a major block from 00:45 am to 04:15 am on the night of June 7 and 8, 2023. This essential maintenance work will result in significant disruptions to local train services, including cancellations, short terminations, and extensions.

According to a senior officer of Western Railway, four local trains will be affected by this block.

A Bhayandar – Churchgate local train, originally scheduled to depart from Bhayandar at 7:52 pm, will remain cancelled. Similarly, a Churchgate - Bhayandar local train, scheduled to depart from Churchgate at 10:27 pm, will also be cancelled.

Moreover, a Churchgate - Bhayandar local train, scheduled to depart from Churchgate at 11:38 pm, will be short terminated at Borivali. As a result, this train will be partially cancelled between Borivali and Churchgate, affecting passengers traveling on this route.
