TSB to investigate Ottawa light rail train wheel cracking

By Mike Vlasveld, 1310 News, July 10, 2020

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) is conducting a 'class 3' investigation on Ottawa's light rail system after cracks were found on four wheels of three separate trains.

The cracks were found during ongoing maintenance and inspection efforts by Rideau Transit Maintenance (RTM).

(...)The government agency says, "It is quite likely that new safety lessons will be identified and that transportation safety will be advanced by reducing risks to persons, property, or the environment."
