With a view to enhance the safety and increase speed in train operations, Western Railway successfully completed the work of Permanent Diversion between Vangaon - Dahanu Road by operating a 8 hours Mega Traffic Block o­n Sunday, 8th May, 2022.

                 According to a press release issued by Shri Sumit Thakur, Chief Public Relations Officer of Western Railway, in yet another boost to infrastructural upgradation in the Mumbai suburban section, the work of opening of permanent diversion was successfully undertaken between Vangaon - Dahanu Road o­n DOWN line in the Virar – Surat section. Due to dimensional infringement in the alignment of the existing tracks, the EMU locals had to be run with a speed restriction of 30 kmph o­n this section. However, with the re-alignment of the tracks by undertaking the work of permanent diversion, it is now possible to run the local trains with enhanced speed. During the Mega Block, the existing DOWN line of the section was disconnected and connected to new alignment with Over Head Equipment and New signals. The existing Bridge No. 166 & 169 which was constructed o­n Screw Pile Foundation has been replaced. New bridges have been constructed with Open Web Steel Girders. This will improve the safety & mobility o­n the Bridge and enable to run the trains at enhanced speed. It is noteworthy to mention that the fabrication work of the new bridge has been done departmentally at Sabarmati Workshop of WR. During the Block period, approx. 300 labourers were deployed alongwith heavy machinery and Track Machines for commissioning the diversion.

          Shri Thakur stated that Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) had inspected the proposed diversion o­n 7th May, 2022 and issued authorization for the commissioning. Immediately after receiving the CRS authorization, Western Railway operated the Traffic block to commission the permanent diversion.
