Commuters face more peak-hour delays
Metro chief executive Andrew Lezala today apologised to commuters but said peak-hour users would again face delays due to faulty air conditioners and sagging overhead wires.
Although today's cooler temperature will reduce the number of mechanical problems, 12 trains remain out of action this afternoon, which means more disruptions across the network.
‘‘We’ll do the best we can to get those (faulty trains) ready for the evening peak. Some of them will be, other won’t because they have more difficult problems with the air conditioners," Mr
Lezala told radio station 3AW.
"There will be some disruption (this afternoon) but we are doing everything possible to give as good a service as we can.’’
