Midland Metro delays after car driven onto tracks

Midland Metro services were unable to travel into Birmingham City Centre for around three hours on Sunday 6th November after a car was driven onto the tracks at Snow Hill becoming wedged and requiring the Fire Service to free it. The car was reported as stuck at approximately 1015 with it not freed until 1300. Whilst the car was wedged all services from Wolverhampton St George’s terminated at St Paul’s. The driver – a 33 year old man from Telford – was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

    The delay in cases like this does seem excessive. Perhaps Tramway Operators should call in a large fork lift truck to clear the route immediately!

    They should fine the driver for tresspassing into a tramway without permission
