Train services on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad route have been suspended for nearly 11 hours since Sunday night due to the Narmada River rising above the danger level between Bharuch and Ankleshwar stations in Gujarat. Additionally, the Western Railway has announced the cancellation of multiple trains as a precautionary measure due to the increasing water level between Bharuch and Ankleshwar in the Vadodara Division.
The Western Railways stated, “Because the water level on bridge no 502 between Bharuch & Ankleshwar in Vadodara Division is above the danger mark, the following trains for 18/09, today, are canceled.”

Due to heavy rainfall in the catchment areas and the release of water from the Sardar Sarovar Dam in the Narmada River, eight trains connecting Vadodara to Ekta Nagar, the location of the Statue of Unity, were canceled for a day, while three trains were canceled indefinitely.
Train services between Bharuch and Ankleshwar stations in the Vadodara division on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad route came to a halt as the Narmada River water level surged above the danger mark at bridge no 502.
The Western Railway has canceled at least a dozen trains, including the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Tejas Express and Shatabdi Express, due to the floods caused by heavy rainfall.
