The service between Armilla, the PTS and Armilla was halted today due to a breakdown in one the Granada metro cars. It stopped between 7:45 and 8.50 AM. Sources from the Ministry of Public Works claim that technicians traveled just minutes after being informed of the breakdown to Avenida Fernando de los Rios de Armilla where the unit was found.
Some metro users expressed their dismay to IDEAL. They claim that at Avenida Fernando de los Rios, they were told they would need to use the Nuevo Los Carmenes metro. Numerous metro passengers had to wait to get the line restored at 8:50 am. Technicians have moved the unit to the Maracena Garage.
The second incident, caused by a drop in voltage at the metro's catenary, was also reported by sources from the Ministry of Public Works to Efe. This information has been communicated to Efe around 10:40 A.M. and has had an impact on the service for approximately one hour.
These are unexpected events that cannot be predicted or that can be predicted. Users are not informed via the stop and station screens.
The Board has stated that the contract with the company responsible for maintaining the line was strengthened and that a protocol was established to prevent such an incident.
