Basis for Recommendation

The investigation undertaken in 2008, into the failure of the hydraulic brake circuit, and resulting actions was insufficient to avoid reoccurrence, therefore the RAIU make the following recommendation


Transdev should ensure that Alstom, as the contracted VMC, review their incident / accident investigation process to ensure that investigations are of sufficient depth and produce clear recommendations
