Dubai Metro on slow track between Noor Islamic-Business Bay stations [video]

Daily users of Dubai Metro say they’ve been experiencing slight delays over the past two days in their regular commute, with trains unusually reducing speed between the Noor Islamic Bank and Business Bay Metro Stations.

Eyewitnesses claim the speed drops by half as it crosses the Noor Islamic Bank Station, maintaining this new speed as it crosses the Dubai Canal Project works, before picking up pace once again as it crosses the Business Bay Station.

1LM, who travels by Dubai Metro daily, spoke to Emirates 24|7 saying: “The change in speed has been going on for two days now. On Monday evening when I was heading home, that was when I first noticed a sudden change of pace as we crossed the Noor Islamic Bank station.

“I thought I was imagining it, but others on the metro as well noticed this sudden drop in speed. We crossed over the Dubai Canal construction towards Business Bay Metro and then suddenly picked up speed again.”

LM said she assumed it was technical issue at the time, but the incident occurred on Tuesday
as well on the commute into work, heading southbound on Dubai Metro. More info
