Inner West light rail services suspended after cracks discovered in trams

Sydney’s Inner West light rail service has been suspended for several days amid safety concerns after cracks were discovered in several trams.

Buses are set to replace trams along the entire L1 Dulwich Hill Line until Sunday, according to a Transport for NSW alert, while staff were told “minor cracking to welding on a limited number of vehicles” was the reason for the suspension.

“We do not believe that the identified cracks pose an immediate threat or major risk to the network,” the memo, seen by the Herald, said.

“As a precaution we will be suspending all services on the line while more detailed inspections take place.”

The cracks were found during a routine maintenance inspection, according to the memo.

Transport for NSW has been contacted for comment.

More to come.
