New Russian Metro Door Failure In Budapest
A Russian metro carriage had to be removed from traffic at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday because its doors malfunctioned, CEO of the Budapest transport company BKV told Index.

The signal lamp for the door’s operation did not function, so the carriage had to be withdrawn from traffic due to security considerations, he said.

The malfunctions of the refurbished metro carriages have a long history, 444 adds, listing previous events.

After an investigation of the carriage it turned out that a wooden cube, which was stuck beneath the door, had caused the malfunction, Index added.
