Malfunction causes Metro delays in morning rush hour

Shanghai's Metro Line 8 trains ran at a restricted speed between two stations due to a malfunction in today's morning rush hour, causing overcrowding and congestion of passengers. Trains ran at low speed between Jiangpu Road Station and Zhongxing Road Station from 7:30am. The train interval was also extended. The metro operator estimated the malfunction would last 10 minutes, reported today. The metro operator had to restrict passengers who wanted to interchange to Line 8 from other lines. One microblogger complained it took 35 minutes for the train to pass three stations and passengers waiting for the train lined all the way to stairs. The metro operator said the normal operation resumed at 7:44am.
