Metro services in the city were disrupted once again on Tuesday after a snag in an overhead electrical (OHE) transformer located between Moti Nagar and Ramesh Nagar stations. As a result, operations on the Blue Line of the Delhi (Dwarka-Noida/Vaishali) had to be stopped for about more than an hour.
The snag was reported at 10.20 am — office-rush hour — and train services were resumed around 11.55 am. Services were affected between Kirti Nagar and Subhash Nagar stations while repair work was being carried out.
To regulate the services on the line, trains were run in two loops — between Dwarka Sec-21 to Subhash Nagar section, and between Kirti Nagar to Noida/Vaishali section.
“Single line trains were operated between Kirti Nagar to Subhash Nagar to take passengers from one end to another end of the line. After carrying out immediate maintenance work of the transformer near Moti Nagar-Ramesh Nagar section, full normalcy on the line was restored at 11.55 am,” a spokesperson for Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said.
This is the fifth time Metro services have been disrupted due to snags in the past two months. Also, most of these technical issues are being reported on the Blue Line.
