Manchester Evening News: Computer failure behind MediaCity chaos.

An exclusive Feb. 3 report by Manchester Evening News reporter Dean Kirby reveals how a new computerised tram management system being tested on Metrolink’s quarter-mile MediaCity spur has caused a total of 60 hours of delays on Metrolink’s Manchester-Eccles line. The spur opened in September.

MEN obtained the information under Britain’s Freedom of Information Act. Score another point for transparency and good journalism.
