Mumbai Rains: It's a long swim home for Vasai after its 26/7 12.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Life started limping back to normalcy in the Nallasapora-Vasai belt on Wednesday, which was marooned by the torrential rains for the past three days. On Wednesday afternoon, wading through waterlogged streets in many parts of Palghar district, residents stepped out to buy bare essentials. A spot visit made by the DNA team revealed the plight of common people, who had to shell out extra money for vegetables, milk and water. Many residents across the western suburbs complained of vegetables becoming dearer and shortage of milk. Bottled water, that is normally sold at Rs 30 was being sold at Rs 80, while one litre milk was being sold for Rs 100. Several officegoers said that they would resume work on Thursday if the water subsided and the rain gods had mercy. Even as mobile network, electricity and rail connectivity remained erratic, the Western Railway stated that local train services were running normal between Dahanu and Churchgate. Trains ran at 10 km per hour on the Nallasopara-Vasai belt. On ...

Mumbai Rains: That sinking feeling! 11.7.2018 DNA: Top News
In one of the worst breakdowns the city has seen in the past monsoons, Vasai, Virar and Palghar were cut off from Mumbai by the heavy rains that lashed the region on Tuesday. Road and rail connectivity was cut off by waterlogging, and Vasai and Virar also lost electricity. Meanwhile, the state government announced in the Assembly that the rains have claimed 62 persons in the state since June, and the Supreme Court lashed out at the government for not looking into the issue of solid waste management which it believed was one of the causes of the current waterlogging crisis. "You see," said a bench of Justices M B Lokur and Deepak Gupta, "Delhi is getting buried under mountain loads of garbage and Mumbai is sinking. But yet, the government does not do anything. When the courts intervene, we are attacked for judicial activism." In the state assembly, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis assured the House that all systems had been alerted and the NDRF (National Disaster Response Force), Coast Guards as well as ...

Why must all decisions be taken in Delhi: Bombay High Court to Railways 11.7.2018 DNA: Top News
The Bombay High Court rapped the Railways on Tuesday for it's callous approach towards Mumbai, urging that a special committee be set up only for the city's suburban division to check on issues related to crowd management, foot-over-bridges and so on. "Why should every decision be taken in Delhi? Decentralise the power," said the division bench comprising Justices Naresh Patil and Girish Kulkarni. "Mumbai locals should be managed by special local body. A disaster management team of railways should be in place for Mumbai too." The bench has directed senior railway officials to consider its suggestions, and reply in two weeks. The bench also recommended privatising management of suburban train platforms to ensure better services as both Central and Western Railways are unable to do so. "Does the Railways not know the areas prone to waterlogging? Yet for years, it has done nothing to lift the tracks. Ever year, Mumbai faces the same problem," the division bench said, while referring to reports of tracks ...

Mumbai: Rains hit fast & furious, city shrugs and carries on 10.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Heavy rains, yet again, crippled regular life in Mumbai and its adjoining areas on Monday. Traffic on the roads was slow moving, trains were running late and the government declared a holiday for schools and colleges in the Mumbai metropolitan region. The Mumbai University also announced that examinations will be rescheduled for students who could not appear for it on Monday. The local trains crawled, but did not stop even though it rained heavily continuously. Of the 3,087 services daily, the Central and Western Railways collectively cancelled close to 110 services. However, there was waterlogging on some locations on both CR and WR, which delayed over 250 services as trains ran late by 20-25 minutes on an average. Some long-distance trains to Gujarat and northern states were halted at Borivali, as tracks near Nallasopara and Virar were submerged. The trains left after a delay of about one hour, a WR spokesperson said. Road traffic was also hit in areas like King's Circle, Suman Nagar, Mulund Sonapur ...

Shame old story for Mumbai 4.7.2018 DNA: India
Tuesday will go down in the history of the city as a day of trauma. Within 24 hours, the financial capital experienced a bridge collapse that caused train delays, another fire at the nefarious Kamala Mills compound, a fire at Virar station, waterlogging and a bizarre bus accident, raising the question: How much longer before the city implodes? At around 7:30 am, a portion of a road-over-bridge at Gokhale bridge collapsed on the railway tracks in Andheri, bringing the Western Suburban railway line to a grinding halt for more than seven hours. Five people were injured and one – the mother of a six-year-old – is said to be in a critical state in Cooper Hospital. Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, who was in town to inaugurate the FOB at Parel-Elphinstone, rushed to the site of the Andheri crash. He instructed that a new committee be formed to study the health of all railway bridges. Restoration work began almost immediately, and the first train for CSMT on the Harbour Line left at 2:15 pm. However, the ...
