New Delhi: In a major worry for the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), platform at Noida City Centre metro station has been found to be sinking with cracks appearing in it.

This was found when the DMRC officials were conducting a routine check of the platforms and pillars on the Noida route.
What’s amusing is that the officials from the Metro and construction company Gammon remain elusive on the reason behind the sagging.

Officials have conducted a thorough check at other stations in the vicinity and fortunately have found no such problem there.

Though, the DMRC hasn’t cancelled any trains, but the travel time has increased due to slow pace as the repair work is going on.

The repair work on pillars number 174 and 185 will continue for two-three weeks.
