Voltage fluctuations slow down Metro blue line
New Delhi: Thousands of Delhi Metro commuters were hit Wednesday morning with voltage fluctuations forcing trains on the blue line to run at a restricted speed.
The 49-km blue line, the longest and the busiest in the Delhi Metro network, links Dwarka in west Delhi with Noida and Vaishali on the outskirts of the capital.
According to a Delhi Metro official, the trouble began at around 8.30 a.m. "There was a voltage fluctuation problem due to which the trains were running at slower speed in blue line. The problem was sorted out in 15 minutes.
"Due to the delay there was bunching of trains so trains coming from Noida and Vaishali to Dwarka were slowed down."
