Full LRT service resumes
An electrical issue caused transit delays along the LRT route Monday afternoon
LRT service has returned to normal, say city officials.
Commuters faced delays on the LRT Monday afternoon after an electrical issue shut down the line between Central and Health Sciences stations for over two hours.
Only one track was open through Grandin station after a train lost power around 1:45 p.m.
To help maintain smooth service, Edmonton Transit Services added several buses to travel along the LRT route while trains through Grandin were delayed. This service was cancelled about 8 p.m.
CBC's Caitlin Hanson was on the northbound LRT near Grandin station when the problem occurred.
She reported hearing a large bang and seeing sparks fly as the train entered the underground system on the north side of the river. The window in one LRT car was also broken.
