Safer Mirages

filed on: 12.04.2005 (12th Apr 2005)

Following an incident on 29th December when Mirage tram 1696 lost a ceiling-mounted spring leading to the injury of a passenger, all trams of this type have been inspected. No similar damage has been identified on any other unit, but protective elements are being fitted nevertheless. The work is costing 30 000 Franks. A dozen vehicles have already been equipped. An investigation by the materials science institute EMPA revealed that the failure was caused by material fatigue.
