Due to a technical snag, metro services have been affected on the Yellow Line: Delhi Metro official
Due to the snag, commuters had a hard time reaching their destinations
New Delhi: Many passengers travelling to Gurgaon through Yellow Line of Delhi Metro were stranded today morning due to a technical glitch. “Due to a technical snag at Chattarpur, train services have been affected on the Yellow Line. The issue is being rectified," Press Trust of India quoted a senior DMRC official as saying.
Commuters faced a hard time reaching their destination as this happened during the office rush hour. The yellow line is one of the busiest one in Delhi and it connects from Huda City Centre in Gurugram to Samaypur Badli in NCR.
Trains were running in following loops temporarily - between Huda City Centre and Sultanpur and between Samaypur Badli and Qutub Minar, the DMRC official said, adding that there will be no train movement between Sultanpur and Qutub Minar till the snag is resolved. Meanwhile, to avoid inconvenience and to facilitate passengers, the authority will operate feeder buses between these two stations.
A huge crowd was seen waiting outside the stations as people waited for other means of transport.
In a tweet, DMRC said: "Two maintenance teams of DMRC technicians consisting of 16 officials worked urgently to rectify the problem. Temporary restoration has been completed and trains are expected to run at restricted speed between Chhattarpur and Qutub Minar soon."
Due to the technical glitch in metro, huge traffic in NH 8 was reported.
Earlier last week, Delhi Metro's Blue Line was affected, causing inconvenience to passengers travelling between Noida Electronic City and Akshardham. (With inputs from PTI)
