I was surprised to read and told this morning about : Computer glitch affects LRT service
“Hundreds of commuters were stranded when the Putra LRT stopped due to a computer glitch along the Kelana Jaya line.
At least four trains came to a halt between stations when the system broke down at 6.16pm yesterday.
The most affected stations were between KL Sentral and Ampang Park, and it took more than an hour to evacuate passengers. Trains at other stations were able to proceed to their destinations as soon as the system resumed at about 7.15pm. “
I think Gareth and I arrived at KLCC station perhaps around 6pm or slightly later. … so we missed the whole episode. Yesterday, we decided to take the train to meet with May Chin to take my mom out for dinner. In fact, Gareth had a great trip, we had a great conversation with a lady in the train on the moving vehicles and getting into the tunnel. It was a very pleasant journey. At least for us. But sadly for the rest who got stranded later … it’s one day after work you want to forget.
How does one process an episode like this? What is one’s response?
Lord, I don’t know “why” we missed this incident. But, we are thankful we’re ok. And we pray for those who were trapped in the trains and disturbed by the whole incident – your peace and protection will be over them. Lord, you know I’m not into explanations or triumphalism. But, I do ask for care and deligence for those who are reparing the damage and maintaining the LRT on a day to day basis. That’s all I can say for now …Amen.
