A 'technical malfunction' affected services at five stations earlier this morning
Dubai Metro services on the red line have resumed as normal this afternoon following disruptions earlier this morning.
A 'technical malfunction' initially affected services at the Sharaf DG station, in Al Barsha, but the issue spread to four more stations: Noor Bank, First Abu Dhabi Bank, Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Internet City.
Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority offered a bus service between the affected stations.
In an update issued this afternoon, the RTA said "the technical malfunction has been resolved and the affected metro stations are operating normally".
