Commuters using the Yellow Line of the Delhi Metro had to face delays in service on Tuesday due to technical snags. The route from Udyog Bhawan to Huda City Centre was largely affected, said the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).
“There is a delay in service between Udyog Bhawan and Huda City Centre, and between Samaypur Badli and Huda City Centre on the Yellow Line. Normal service is on at all other lines,” the DMRC tweeted.
“Train services will be run in loops temporarily between Huda City Centre and Sultanpur, and between Samaypur Badli and Qutub Minar,” the DMRC said.
The DMRC will be running feeder bus service between Sultanpur and Qutub Minar to facilitate passengers.
Repair work has been carried out between Qutub Minar and Chhattarpur Metro stations and technicians and officials are working on location to rectify the issue at the earliest, informed DMRC.
Two maintenance teams of DMRC technicians consisting of 16 officials rushed to the spot to rectify the problem.
Temporary restoration has been completed and trains are expected to run at a restricted speed between Chhattarpur and Qutub Minar soon, said DMRC.
According to the latest information, train movement has been partially normalised between Qutub Minar and Chhattarpur and only a single line is operational at the moment.
According to DMRC sources, the problem occurred at Chhattarpur, adding that it would be running feeder bus services between Sultanpur and Qutub Minar.
However, all other lines are running services as usual.
