Users of the Caracas Metro reported that due to the maintenance activities carried out by the company on the railroad between Petare and Palo Verde stations, the service showed strong delays on line 1 of the system this Saturday.
The passengers assured that the stations Los Dos Caminos, Los Cortijos and La California were also affected by the work carried out by the technical personnel.
At the Los Dos Caminos station, Yeniffer Rojas said that "I have been waiting for more than an hour and only one train has passed to Palo Verde, the others worked until this station and returned to Propatria."
The user said that "the eviction of trains caused the station to fill to its maximum capacity, so the few trains that continue the usual route are filled and many must wait for the next."
Given the delay of the trains to reach the stations, many users opted for surface transport.
The Metro de Caracas company informed through the social network Twitter that the technical staff replaced heart crosses in the Palo Verde tracks to increase the speed of the trains in that stretch.
