According to Mumbai Metro One (MMOPL) spokesperson, the services between Versova and Airport Road were suspended due to an overhead wire failure at Andheri at around 5.30 pm.
“Their is an overhead wire failure near Andheri and train services are suspended temporarily between Versova and Airport Station. Trains are running between Airport Road and Gharkopar Station. MMOPL regrets inconvenience,” the spokesperson said.
