Ref # 2023004-05
Status Open / In progress
Occurrence Failure of a Current Return Cable on a Luas Tram, Connolly Stop, 25th October 2022
Occurrence Date 25 October 2022

Basis for Recommendation

TDLR maintenance partially dissembled evidential components from Tram 3012, prior to notifying the RAIU, despite being aware that an electrical cable, rather than a hose was severed.


For instances where rolling stock is withdrawal from service as a result of damage; TDLR should develop notification procedures to identify where immediate notification to the RAIU is required (excepting certain condition, such as damage as a result of road traffic collisions where a road vehicle has breached the traffic lights).
