New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) opened the Yamuna Bank entry-exit gate of the metro station after three days on Sunday. It was temporarily closed due to the Yamuna’s water level rising.

The decision was made after the Yamuna’s water level decreased. The Yamuna water level was 205.95 metres at 10 a.m. The water level was 205.98 metres on Sunday, down from a height of 208.66 metres at 20:00 hours on Thursday.

As the Yamuna River’s water level rises as a result of severe rains and the release of water from the Hathnikund Barrage, various low-lying communities around the river have been affected, resulting in water being pushed onto the roadways, waterlogging difficulties, and traffic congestion. Floods have the greatest impact on the city’s northeast, east, central, and southeast areas.

In addition, DMRC tweeted about the restoration of trains’ speed, which was earlier restricted. “Speed restriction imposed while crossing Metro bridges over Yamuna has been removed. All trains are running at normal speed now.” DMRC tweeted.
