Mumbai News: Two Nights Block Of 6 Hours Each At CSMT, Over 2 Dozen Trains To Be Affected, Check List | FPJ

Mumbai: The Central Railway (CR) has announced two special traffic night block of six hours each at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) starting at 11 pm on October 6. According to CR, important infrastructure upgrade is scheduled to take place during thses block

Due to these block, over two dozen long-distance trains will be affected, several others will be short terminated and a few rescheduled.

Details of block

These blocks will be operated in the mid night of October 6th/7th and October 7th/8th. Both night block will be operated between 11pm to 5 am.

According to CR, these improvements will directly impact the connectivity of the Receiving and Dispatch (RD) line no 3 with line no 7 on the CSMT-Wadi Bunder yard.

Currently, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus boasts 18 platforms, with platforms 8 to 18 dedicated exclusively to the arrival and departure of mail/express and passenger trains. After passengers disembark from these trains, they are hauled by shunting engines to the Wadi Bunder/Mazgaon yard for essential cleaning and maintenance. From there, the trains are channeled into various lines based on their requirements, including sick lines, pit lines, examination lines, and stabling lines.

Presently, three lines, Receiving/Dispatch (RD) line no 1, 2, and 4, handle the shunting of empty trains to the yard. However, ongoing infrastructure work on the CSMT-Wadi Bunder section is set to revolutionize this process by connecting Receiving/Dispatch line no 3 (RD line no 3) with line no 7. This enhanced connectivity promises to streamline the shunting of mail and express trains to the yard, leading to more efficient and safer train operations.

Upon completion of the project, the Wadi Bunder yard will have a total of 4 lines dedicated to receiving and dispatching trains from CSMT, compared to the current 3 lines. This expansion is expected to significantly improve the mobility of shunting operations, benefiting both passengers and railway operations.
