Mumbai, Aug 29: Train services on the Central and the Harbour line were disrupted following heavy rains which lashed the metropolis Sunday night. Traffic was affected today (Aug 29) due to water logging in the tracks in several low-lying areas in the city inconveniencing daily commuters and office goers.

Water logging was reported from several places including Sion and Kurla paralysing suburban services between Thane and Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) on the Central line.

On Harbour line traffic between Panvel and CST stations was crippled due to inundated rail tracks in Chunabhatti, Chembur and Mankhurd stations. However, trains on the Western line were running late by 15-20 minutes.

"Due to heavy downpour resulting in waterlogging at several stations on Central and Harbour line, train services have been stopped for sometime. We are waiting for the water to recede to resume services," A K Singh, Central Railway PRO said.

Vehicular traffic was also affected due to water-logging in areas like suburban Parel, Hindmata, Dadar, Milan subway Andheri, Santacruz, Kurla, Vikhroli, Ghatkopar and Vile Parle.

Air services have remained unaffected as of now and there were no reports of wall or building collapse.
