Caracas - Venezuelan Minister of Transportation, Hipolito Abreu, denounced today an act of sabotage perpetrated this morning by destabilizing elements against line 2 of the Caracas Subway between Antimano and Mamera stations.
Through a message posted on Twitter, the minister condemned this action against the main passenger transportation service of the Venezuelan capital, adding that teams are working to restore the normal operation of the system.
'A new act of sabotage against the Caracas subway affects Line 2. Thanks to the rapid action of the working class of the subway, the service will soon be normalized. We are working hard to capture and dismantle these enemy groups of the homeland,' Abreu tweeted.
Due to the effects caused by the sabotage, the authorities informed that the trains would circulate in a restricted way, and, instead, they activated a contingency route with the use of buses.
According to estimates, more than two million people use this transport system every day, which serves the inhabitants of Caracas and its metropolitan area, consisting of a network of railways, surface transport, cable cars and fast transit buses.
