Travellers onboard nine trams across the CBD on Tuesday afternoon were asked to get off and use the train instead after a mechanical failure led to urgent repairs to a tram at Town Hall.
Services were stopped between Town Hall and Circular Quay about 4pm, and were down for roughly 90 minutes before the tram was repaired and taken out of use.
“A maintenance crew has now rectified the fault so the tram can be moved back to the depot. Services have now resumed,” said a spokesperson for ALTRAC, the company that operates the line.
“Affected passengers were disembarked from nine trams halted in the city and advised to use Sydney Trains services to travel between Town Hall and Circular Quay.”
