Western Railway will implement a two-hour mega block on December 16 and 17, from 10 am to noon, in order to dismantle a steel girder for the construction of an overbridge at Palghar Road. The block, affecting both Up and Down Main Lines between Umroli and Palghar stations in the Virar-Dahanu Road Section, will lead to the partial cancellation of six suburban trains. Furthermore, two shuttle services will be fully cancelled during the block period and a dozen long-distance trains will be regulated en route.

Officials said that Bandra Terminus-Vapi Passenger Train and Vapi-Virar Shuttle train will be cancelled.

A Churchgate-Dahanu Road suburban train departing at 7.42 am will be short terminated at Palghar, and hence partially cancelled between Palghar-Dahanu Road, and a Dahanu Road-Virar local departing at 9.37 am will remain partially cancelled between Dahanu Road-Palghar.

Another Churchgate-Dahanu Road suburban train departing at 8.49 am will be short terminated at Palghar and hence will be partially cancelled between Palghar-Dahanu Road, and a Dahanu Road-Virar suburban train departing at 10.10am will remain partially cancelled between Dahanu Road-Palghar.

A Borivali-Dahanu Road suburban train departing at 10.26am will remain partially cancelled between Palghar-Dahanu Road, and a Dahanu Road-Virar suburban train departing at 11.35am will remain partially cancelled between Dahanu Road-Palghar.

Commuters are advised to plan their travel accordingly during this period, considering the temporary alterations and cancellations in the train schedule, the officials said. According to WR, these measures are essential for the progress of the Palghar Road overbridge construction project.
