New Delhi, Jun 18 (PTI) The services on the Delhi Metro’s blue line remained affected for over an hour this evening after an overhead wire snapped near Noida sector 15 station.

The breakage of the wire, on the line going towards Dwarka, forced the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to run the train services on a single line between Noida sector 16 and Yamuna Bank stations, the DMRC said.

The running of trains were affected from 5.31 pm to 6.44 pm after which the services were completely restored, a DMRC release said.

To ensure that commuters were not left stranded, train services were run on a single line, through the down line, between Noida sector 16 and Yamuna Bank stations, it said.

Short loop services were also introduced between Noida Sector 16 and Noida City Centre stations, it said.
