Good Day. Furthur from CTV News Ottawa......
Officials said Friday ((sic)) that 80 metres of wire was pulled down just before 11 a.m. on Thursday.
Peter Lauch, the head of Rideau Transit Group and Rideau Transit Maintenance, is apologizing for the disruption and says they are still working to find out exactly how the wire broke. Crews are working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.
"The system actually did what it's supposed to do," Lauch said. "As soon as the event happened, power was de-energized and there was no live power anywhere. The doors opened under battery power."
Lauch said Thursday afternoon that crews had removed the wire. The stalled train was moved out of the way late Thursday afternoon.
