Delhi Metro's Blue Line hit by technical snag thrice in 24 hours, commuters face trouble

A day after the Delhi Metro corridor faced a technical snag, commuters travelling on the Blue Line faced problems Thursday morning as a signalling issue led to a delay in the train services on the entire stretch. Connecting Dwarka to Noida and Vaishali, the Blue Line is one of the busiest segments of the Delhi Metro network. Vaishali section branches off from Yamuna Bank, an intersection station.
According to a senior DMRC official, "There is some signalling issue which is intermittently surfacing on Yamuna Bank to Vaishali section of the Blue Line, affecting punctuality of services on the entire Blue Line.'A temporary arrangement for train services has been made till the problem is solved, he said.
"Train services between Dwarka and Noida are running seamless in one go with a frequency of around 4 minutes and 30 seconds on an automatic mode through central control, i.e., Operations Control Centre," the official said. The regular frequency of trains on Dwarka-Noida line is 2 minutes and 30 seconds, he added.
