Delhi Metro’s software and signalling problems continued for the third day on Friday, resulting in delayed trains and passenger inconveniences.
Facing ire from commuters, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Thursday said it had sent software logs to Germany (Siemens) for review. The signalling team managed to keep the trains running on the affected stretch on Wednesday and Thursday, albeit with with delays.
On Wednesday, there were problems in communication between operation control centre (OCC) of DMRC and the trains which resulted in 16 trips being cancelled and 20 delayed on Blue Line, it said.
“The signaling team has already carried out the rectification work on the signalling system by noon today. However, it is still under observation and the original train operation plan will be reintroduced on the entire Blue Line once the system stabilises. In the interim, the software logs have been sent to Germany (Siemens) for online review,” DMRC said in a release.
The interlocking stations behaved erratically resulting in intermittent disruption of communication with the OCC, DMRC added.
