The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has lifted the speed restriction for metro trains crossing the Yamuna bridges and stated that all trains are now running at normal speed.
“Speed restriction imposed while crossing Metro bridges over Yamuna has been removed. All trains are running at normal speed now,” tweeted DMRC.

DMRC had previously lowered metro train speeds over four Yamuna bridges due to rising water levels in the river.
Even while numerous districts of Delhi remained inundated, the Yamuna, which runs through the national capital, fell to 207.68 metres this morning, breaking a 45-year record.

Earlier this week, the river hit 208.66 metres, breaking the previous record of 207.49 metres set in 1978.
As water flooded major areas of the centralĀ Delhi, the Army and the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) were called in.
