Track waterlogged, services hit on Delhi Metro’s Magenta Line


A section of the Delhi Metro’s Magenta Line from Janakpuri West to Terminal 1-IGI Airport faced delays for around five hours on Tuesday.

According to official sources, the tracks between Dabri Mor and Janakpuri West were waterlogged and the line had to be shut down for the tracks to be serviced.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation tweeted that passengers can travel on the Blue Line until services are restored on the Magenta Line. Services, which were hit a little after 10.30 am on Tuesday morning, resumed close to 4 pm.

The Magenta Line spans 34 km with 25 stations cutting across Delhi from Janakpuri West in West Delhi to Botanical Garden in Noida. It sees an average number of 4 lakh passenger journeys in a day.

The last time the Delhi Metro faced waterlogging was in 2018 when the Bhikaji Cama station was flooded days before the Pink Line was inaugurated. During an especially heavy storm, a storm drain next to the station’s entry overflowed and inundated the station with excess water.
