Queensway? Wasn't that closed for over a year for a root-and-branch refurb? Didn't the refurb overrun by several weeks so the contractor could have the time to get everything right?

So what happened earlier this week then? Sunday, the station closed for half an hour because both shiny new lifts broke down. Monday evening, the eastbound platform closed for over an hour as a Way Out sign dangled in mid-air threatening to fall on someone's head.

Teething problems? Maybe. Cowboy contracting companies cutting corners to boost profits? More likely.
