Metro services to be hit due to maintenance work
Services between the Central Secretariat and Mandi House stations ran on single line on Thursday due to some maintenance work of tracks.
“Due to maintenance of track on the up line (going towards Badarpur) of Mandi House station from 12.30 pm to 1.40 pm, trains services were curtailed,” a metro spokesman said. Since it was not announced a day before, passengers going towards Badarpur from ITO and Mandi House stations mainly faced difficulties. During the said period, a train ran as a shuttle service between ITO and Mandi House whereas a single line was operational between Mandi House and Central Secretariat.
Meanwhile, a workshop on Metro travel was organised by the Delhi Metro Museum for children undergoing treatment for cancer on Thursday.
The children were taken for a Metro ride from AIIMS to Patel Chowk and a guided tour of the Metro Museum there. A presentation on the basic facilities available in the Metro in case of any medical emergency was given and some short films on the basic etiquettes of Metro travel were also screened.
