DMRC Updates: Access Road to Yamuna Bank Metro Station Unreachable; Trains Crossing Metro Bridges at Restricted Speed
In a recent tweet, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has informed the public that the approach road leading to Yamuna Bank Metro Station is presently inaccessible due to the rising water levels of the Yamuna River. Commuters are advised to plan their journeys accordingly and explore alternate routes. However, the interchange facility at the station remains operational.
Furthermore, DMRC has implemented restrictions on train speeds while crossing metro bridges, despite services operating normally. This precautionary measure is being taken to ensure passenger safety and mitigate any potential risks associated with the ongoing flood situation. Commuters are encouraged to stay informed and follow any further updates from DMRC regarding the metro services.
DMRC Advisory: Restricted Speed on Metro Bridges due to Rising Yamuna Water Levels; Normal Services Continue
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has announced that as a precautionary measure, trains are currently crossing all four Metro bridges over the Yamuna River at a restricted speed of 30 kmph. Despite this restriction, normal services are being maintained on all metro corridors.
The impact of the flood situation has extended beyond the metro services, causing significant disruption to transportation in the national capital. Multiple key roads have become waterlogged, leading to massive traffic congestion on alternative routes.
The water level in the Yamuna River has reached 208.46 meters as of 7 am today, with water continuing to be released from the Hathnikund barrage in Haryana. This current level is three meters above the danger mark, indicating the severity of the situation.
As a result of the flood-like conditions, schools in the affected area have been forced to close, and three water treatment plants have been temporarily shut down. Authorities are actively working to address the situation and minimize its impact.
