DOI fined £18,000 for runaway tram incident

Fri, 14 Dec 2018

A government department has been fined after a runaway mountain tram incident.

The tramway carriage suffered brake failure as it left the summit station in August last year and careered out of control down the mountain.

It crossed the main road at Bungalow before the crew, wrestling with the manual brake, managed to bring the vehicle under control.

The Department of Infrastructure pleaded guilty to five health and safety charges and has been fined £18,000.
