Heat Bends Tram Tracks
Brno, August 3 (BD) – The continuous high temperatures in Brno have caused tram tracks to bend at the Osová tram stop, without causing further problems to the rest of traffic flow in Brno. The incident was observed on Monday 31st of July. Photo: DPMB
The bended tracks at the spot were fixed by the same evening. The spokeswoman of DPMB Barbora Lukšová stated that this was the first big case for this year. The technicians had to cut the faulty track and place it back.
To prevent problems like this, drivers are instructed to slow down near vulnerable areas. The patrols of DPMB technicians around the city will be enhanced. The track spots with high sensitivity seem to be the tram tracks above the road levels and old ones.
