Chaos at Istanbul metrobus stop as hundreds congest in early rush hour
ISTANBULThe temporary closure of a metrobus stop in Istanbul’s Zeytinburnu district led to chaotic congestion at the nearby Merter metrobus stop during the rush hours on Nov. 8.
The human congestion forced some to queue for up to 20 minutes just to reach an overpass at the Merter stop, while others said it took them around 45 minutes to cross the overpass.
Some people were also seen as attempting to cross the road reserved for regular vehicles by climbing over the fences and barrier to avoid the jam.
Officials say the Zeytinburnu stop will be reopened to metrobus passengers in 15 days.
