Dis-Connect

Submitted by Tubeworker on Tue, 24/10/2006 - 16:37

Tubeworker has kept reader informed of the numerous stumbling blocks along the road of Connect. And they continue to stumble.

Five days before the new equipment was due to go live on the District Line, they finally got round to doing operational testing on the road with local health and safety reps. And it all went pear-shaped.

The problem? When a train moves from one section of the Connect track into the next, the kit crashes for a short while as it searches for a new signal. So you might miss that all-important code red, or not get to send that mayday message.

And this project has been going for how long? A clue: It used to be known as 'Connect 2000'.
