Without any prior intimation, the Delhi Metro suspended its services for two hours on Wednesday between Dwarka and Dwarka 9 stations, which caused massive trouble to the of commuters.

However, Delhi Metro made arrangements of feeder bus service for the affected passengers and offered the services free of cost. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) officials said: “We had to suspend Metro service between Dwarka and Dwarka 9 stations due to signaling and integration testing on the stretch. The stretch is going to be extended to Dwarka 21 station.”

Metro officials said they chose the non-peak hour for the technical upgradation process since footfall in the afternoon on the stretch is verylow.

Meanwhile, Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety inspected the stretch between Dwarka 9 and Dwarka 21 on Wednesday and it is expected to be operational soon.
