Basis for Recommendation

Although noted as not being a contributory factor in the failure of the Overhead Contact System (OCS) wire, it was noted that vehicle planned maintenance did not require the earth bonding to be measured, the RAIU make the following safety recommendation:


Transdev should include the electrical resistance measuring of vehicle earth bonding in the planned preventative maintenance regime for all trams.
