NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): Metro services on the Yellow Line connecting Samaypur Badli to HUDA City Centre ran in loops on Monday. The DMRC had already said in the morning that the services would run in loops till further notice. This was necessitated in view of the track repair work being undertaken on a portion between Rajiv Chowk and New Delhi section of Up line (going towards Badli).
The services on Delhi Metro Yellow Line ran in the following loops:
1) Normal services ran through both Up & Down Lines between Samaypur Badli & Vishwavidyalaya stations
2) Single Line (through Down Line) services were available between Vishwavidyalaya & Rajiv Chowk stations which may result in less frequency of trains in this section.
3) Normal services ran through both Up & Down lines between Rajiv Chowk & HUDA City Centre stations.
Services between single line section of Rajiv Chowk & Vishwavidyalaya were restored normally after both the Up & Down Lines with regular frequency later in the evening.
After being shut for nearly six months, Metro services in Delhi and the National Capital Region resumed in a phased manner on 7 September as part of Unlock 4 announced by the government.
The Ministry of Home Affairs had recently issued guidelines allowing the Delhi Metro to resume operations in a graded manner, following which the DMRC had said it would be done in three stages from September 7-12.
The Delhi Metro resumed services on last Monday with the curtailed operations on the Yellow Line and Rapid Metro. Stage two kicked in on Friday with Magenta and Grey lines also opening their doors to commuters and service hours being extended.
