Dubai Metro red line back on track after technical glitch

Services were disrupted between ADCB metro station and First Gulf Metro Station

The Dubai Metro was back on track on Monday afternoon after a fault caused a section to close around midday, the Roads and Transport Authority said on Monday.

Officials said the section between ADCB and First Gulf Bank Metro was affected shortly after midday.

Shortly after 2pm the RTA said the service was moving again.

Replacement bus services were on hand to pick up passengers and pictures on social media showed queues outside Noor Bank Metro Station.

"#RTA announces the return of Dubai metro service back to normal and Thanks the metro riders for their cooperation, wishing them a pleasant journey onwards," the RTA said in a tweet.
