Mumbai, June 21: Commuters from Thane to Panvel stations on the trans-harbour route have been left stranded as the local trains are not plying due to a technical glitch. The disappointed passengers have taken to social media to mark their dissent against the Railway Ministry. The services were yet to be restored by the time this report was published.

According to reports, the line turned dysfunctional at 10am in the morning -- the peak office hours. A train on the route has been stranded between Koparkhairane and Turbhe railway stations. Quick Response Teams Planned at Thane, Kalyan, Dadar, Kurla as CR Preps For Monsoon

The Central Railway has taken cognizance of the logjam and has initiated efforts to restore the line. While replying to a Twitter user, the Central Railway expressed regret for the unprecedented inconvenience caused to commuters.

Commuters Venting Their Frustration on Twitter:

Passengers Stuck in Vashi, Airoli, Nerul

Stranded Commuters 'Not Informed'

The Trans Harbour route is used for commutation between Thane and Panvel, covering a stretch of nearly 50 km. Much of the local line passes through Navi Mumbai, with major halts being Rabale, Airoli, Koparkhairane, Vashi, Sanpada, Juinagar, Nerul, Seawoods, Belapur, Kharghar and Mansarovar.

The above stations, mostly located in the satellite city of Navi Mumbai, have developed as bustling hubs due to sprawling colleges and industries in the region. The disruption of train services affects scores of people, including workers, white-collared employees and students.
