Dubai: Commuters on a segment of the Dubai Metro’s Red Line were stranded on Tuesday evening after a train stopped between Al Karama and Al Jafiliya stations during peak hours following a technical snag.
As of 10pm, Metro services were fully restored after a technical glitch halted operations on the Red Line.
An hour earlier, more than 100 passengers were still stranded outside the Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa Station and were waiting for either public transport buses or taxis.
According to a Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) official, the train on the Red Line was hit by an electrical failure, causing the metro to stall operations between the Union and Business Bay metro stations.
