Delhi Metro Yellow Line halted again due to technical snag, angry commuters take to Twitter

NEW DELHI: The yellow line of the Delhi Metro is facing trouble yet again. The train was stuck for over 20 minutes due to signalling issues at three major stations on the busy Yellow Line that connects Samaypur Badli and Huda City Centre. 

The snag took place at the Rajiv Chowk, Kashmere Gate and Vishwavidyala stations around 11:30 am. Metro officials said the train services slowed down but did not stop. "Due to a signalling issue at the interlocking stations of Rajiv Chowk, Kashmere Gate and Vishwavidyala stations of Line 2 (Yellow Line), trains were manually given routes from 11:30 am to 12:04 pm. This caused a little bunching of trains on Line 2 during this period," the official said.

"Trains were stopping for longer hours than usual, causing the delay, but the services weren't stopped at any point of time," he added. The issue has been resolved and services are getting restored with normal movement, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said. 

 

Several commuters took to Twitter on Friday to share the ordeal.

The Angry reactions were bound to come:

And some jokes too

In January too, the yellow line had faced a technical glitch leading to trains being delayed for over 30 minutes. The glitch had occurred in the overhead electricity line near Azadpur on the Yellow line.

Rajiv Chowk (Blue Line-Yellow Line) and Kashmere Gates (Red Line with Yellow and Violet Lines) are interchange stations, which get huge footfalls each day.
