Dubai Metro red line back on track after technical glitch


The services on the red line returned to normalcy.

Services on the Dubai Metro red line have resumed after a technical glitch early on Wednesday morning. Passengers at the Rashidiya Metro Station headed towards the UAE Exchange route had faced delays in the morning.

Around 10.30am, the official account of Dubai Metro posted an update that the problem between Rashidiya and GGICO stations has been resolved and services are back to normal. 


Residents had taken to social media to report long delays on the red line from around 8am with particularly large lines seen at the Rashidiya and Union stations.

One user posted a picture of long queue at Rashidiya metro station on Twitter. Another commuter said the train had not been moving for 15 minutes and doors were shut.
