BLOG – Island Line Closed after Metal Debris Hits MTR Train Window 2


The blue Island Line was partially suspended this morning following what was rumoured to be a collision between Central and Sheung Wan station.  This led to further chaos at East Rail interchange station and service disruptions as the system coped with over-crowding.

The Twitter feed later reported that a piece of metal hit a train in the tunnel, smashing the driver’s window.

The unofficial source blamed under-staffing and labour outsourcing.

There were no injuries. Information boards were erected in stations and replacement bus services were put into operation…
