Amid increasing water levels in the river, Delhi Metro temporarily closed Yamuna Bank Metro Station and slowed down metro trains on four Yamuna Bridges.
“Due to the escalating water levels of the Yamuna River, the approach road leading to Yamuna Bank Metro Station is currently inaccessible. Kindly plan your journey accordingly and consider alternate routes. However, an interchange facility is available,” the DMRC tweeted today.
According to DMRC, the four Yamuna bridges are being crossed by metro trains at a restricted speed of 30 kmph due to the Yamuna’s rising water level. The overflowing river has breached the historic record set in 1978, flooding low-lying areas close to the banks. The water level in the Yamuna reached 208.53 metres at 10 a.m. on Thursday.
“Due to rising water levels of the Yamuna, trains are passing through all four Metro bridges on the river with a restricted speed of 30 kmph as a precautionary measure. Normal services on all corridors,” the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) tweeted.
