A day after the much-delayed 11.28 kilometre second phase of the Chembur-Wadala-Jacob Circle monorail network was inaugurated, a glitch stopped the Mumbai Monorail’s run at Wadala Depot on Monday. The train, which was going towards Chembur, stopped at Wadala depot at 12.25 pm after a cable entangled its front. All passengers were evacuated from the train. The train will be sent for repairs and brought back.

A day after the much-delayed 11.28 kilometre second phase of the Chembur-Wadala-Jacob Circle monorail network was inaugurated, a glitch stopped the Mumbai Monorail’s run at Wadala Depot on Monday.

The train, which was going towards Chembur, stopped at Wadala depot at 12.25 pm after a cable entangled its front.

All passengers were evacuated from the train. An official present at the spot said that the authority will get another train for the passengers to move forward. “The train will be sent for repairs and brought back,” the official said.

Sudhakar Mishra, a resident of Wadala who works at MTNL’s Chembur office said, “I would have probably reached office by now if I had walked. I have already waited 30 minutes for the train and this technical snag has delayed it further.”
