Breakdown slows Metro Line 1 services during rush hour

AN equipment breakdown forced Metro Line 1 to slow the speed of trains running between the Xinzhuang Station and the Jinjiang Park Station this morning. In an announcement made by Shanghai Metro, the breakdown occurred at 8:18am. The type of the equipment failure was not disclosed but it caused longer intervals and restriction of passengers entering the affected stations. One commuter posted a Weibo microblog saying the breakdown had cost him 20 more minutes to reach People's Square from Xinzhuang. The normal operation resumed by 10am.
