The railway services which were affected by heavy rainfall in Mumbai resumed in the city on Tuesday.

All three lines including Up, Down and Middle are now operational, Central Railway Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) said.

"No water-logging has been reported on the railway tracks, Kurla to Mulund section recorded 13mm rainfall during the last one hour. Now all three lines have been made operational," Central Railway CPRO.

The heavy rains on Monday had led to water-logging in few areas and also disrupted the flight operations at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport.

The Central Railways had arranged eight special trains from Dombivali and Thane railway stations in Mumbai in order to clear the rush during peak hours amidst incessant rainfall, earlier this week.

A compound wall collapsed on the hutments built on a hill slope in Kurar Village in area of Malad East due to heavy downpour last week which killed around 24 people.
