A day full of delays. Due to the strong wind, there are 27 tracks, the express train at Doks derailed
Due to the strong wind, the trains start to run slower so that they can stop in time in front of a fallen tree on the track.
(updated 13:09) The train journey practically along the entire railway network today will bring a great risk of delay. The reason is the strong wind, especially due to the risk of trees falling on the track. At 1 p.m., traffic on a total of 27 lines was stopped. To this were added other technical problems, for example in the form of a failure of the traction line on the 1st corridor between Prague and Kolín.
“Due to the strong wind, an order is issued to run trains carefully. There may be train delays throughout the rail network. “ stated Prague Integrated Transport on its twitter account. The large volume of delays is shown by the operational applications of the Grapp Railway Administration.
The fallen tree on the track also brought the first extraordinary: on the line from Česká Lípa to Mladá Boleslav in the section Doksy – Jestřebí, the Arriva express drove into the tree and derailed it. Nobody was injured.
The biggest complication in terms of the number of traffic passengers occurred on Corridor I: due to a failure of the traction line, the traffic between Pečky and Poříčany is interrupted. Long-distance trains run through Lysá nad Labem. Operation on one track was resumed before 11 a.m.
So far, strong winds have complicated rail transport, especially in the Pilsen and Karlovy Vary regions. Fallen trees stopped traffic in Domažlice or Pernink in the morning. We are currently dealing with fallen branches on the traction line of the corridor line between Poříčany and Pečky. The operation is stopped from 9:40. pic.twitter.com/qZylSaQKCC
