Operations to Goa were further affected as tracks were washed out owing to flooding in Sindhudurg district and Mumbai-Pune services, hit due to the landslide at Bhor ghat.

Train services were disrupted on the Mumbai-Goa and Mumbai-Pune routes on Wednesday. While operations to Goa were further affected as tracks were washed out owing to flooding in Sindhudurg district, Mumbai-Pune services, hit due to the landslide at Bhor ghat on Sunday, were not restored. Konkan Railway officials said heavy rains washed out a 10-m stretch of the tracks between Kudal and Zarap stations. LK Verma, chief spokesperson, KR, said they immediately began repair work, but the washout had a cascading effect.
