Dubai: Operations at three metro stations were suspended on Saturday morning due to a water pipe burst between interchanges 2 and 3 on Shaikh Zayed Road.

The three metro stations that were closed were DIFC, Mall of the Emirates and Nakheel Harbour and Tower station.

Trains were stopping at the DIFC metro station and passengers were transported by shuttle buses.

The pipe burst occurred at around 4am and the DEWA emergency team is working to fix it.
