Washington Metro will close for a day

on Tue Mar 15, 2016 10:13 pm
In Washington, DC metro closes at least a day since March 16th. It is reported by The Washington Post citing officials.

Metro closes at midnight on Wednesday (7.00 am Wednesday to Moscow time) for 24 hours. The reason for closure - the need for security checks of electrical cables.

The publication notes that the decision was taken after a cable fire on Monday, March 14th. A similar incident in the past year has led to the smoke, as a result of which one person died and dozens were injured.

The head of the Washington Metro said that the decision was made primarily for the safety of passengers and to avoid a repetition of last year's incident.

According to him, during the closing will be surveyed about 600 electric cables. He added that if the potentially dangerous areas of the cables will be found when testing, the closing time can be increased for the purpose of carrying out repair work. In Russian
