Commuters were left waiting for up to 30 minutes on the Red Line shortly after 8am. After 10 minutes, an announcement said that the Metro was experiencing “technical difficulties.”

Passengers reported that trains were stopping between stations on the northbound line, including DMCC and Internet City, and also travelling southbound from Union.

Things started moving again at about 8.35am and it looks like everything is running smoothly.

So far there’s been no official announcement from Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority as to what caused the issue.
