Delhi Metro services hit again, technical glitch hits Blue Line | India News


New Delhi: Services on Delhi Metro’s Blue Line were delayed on Thursday (June 9, 2022) during morning rush hour after damage to overhead electrification wire, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said. Taking to its official Twitter account, DMRC informed that the delay in services occurred between Dwarka Sector 21 and Noida Electronic City/Vaishali metro stations.

Normal services resumed after a few hours, the DMRC said.

Providing an update on the Blue Line, Delhi Metro said the overhead electrification wire had been damaged due to flashover by an external object between Yamuna Bank and Indraprastha.

Earlier on Monday, services on Delhi’s Metro Blue Line were halted for nearly an hour and a half as services across the corridor were hit due to a technical glitch, officials said.

“Train services between Yamuna Bank and Indraprastha stations on the Blue Line have been affected from 6:35 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. to undertake repair work on a broken contact wire (part of OHE or overhead equipment) on the Up Line (towards Dwarka) due to some external object (bird) hitting the OHE/train pantograph,” DMRC said in a statement.

Huge swarms of crowds were seen at several stations, especially at Indraprastha metro station.

Meanwhile, several people have taken to Twitter to criticize DMRC for the ongoing issues.

“You do the same thing on a daily basis. If you don’t manage the subway, why don’t you take serious action against a person concerned. Once in a while, everyone can understand, but it happens on a daily basis,” said writes a Twitter user to DMRC. .

“It’s pathetic and frustrating, it’s now a normal culture in the Delhi metro,” said another.

“Why there are so many delays due to TECHNICAL GLITCH. This does not happen in other countries, even with 2 minute delays, they publicly apologize and by this means our DMRC should rename itself SMRC (Sorry Metro Rail corporation) because there is TECHNICAL GLITCH daily,” one user wrote.
