| Friday | 12th July, 2019
Over the last couple of days, there have been mud and landslides on rail tracks on the Kalyan-Igatpuri/Khopoli sections affecting rail traffic.
It was away from the usual rail line used by long-distance trains.
In this year's Budget, the Central Railway has allotted money for building steel nets around the boulders and fencing them properly.
"Along with boulders there were 150 cubic meters of muck on the middle line between Thakurwadi and Monkey Hill," said Sunil Udasi, Chief PRO, Central Railway.
Removing the boulders and muck from the middle line was more challenging and after manually removing the boulders and muck the middle track was declared safe at 4.55 am on July 9.
