Taipei MRT Bannan Line Experiences Abnormal Braking Incident 北捷板南線剎車異常 逾千乘客被迫下車

An abnormal train braking accident occurred on the Taipei MRT's Bannan Line at 7 a.m. this morning. About a thousand passengers were forced to disembark the train. Taipei MRT found that there was an abnormal circuit signal, causing a delay three minutes. However, many people complained that they were "half an hour" late for work this morning due to this incident.


Thick white smoke poured out of the carriages, spreading a pungent burnt smell on the Taipei MRT's Bannan Line. Passengers stepped out of carriages to escape the smoke. At around 7:00 a.m. on the 21st, a subway carriage experienced abnormal brakes on the Bannan Line. About a thousand passengers on the subway were forced to get off at Jiangzicui Station. 

The incident took place during rush hour. It wasn't just Jiangzicui Station, but other stations were crowded with passengers getting off carriages, including large transfer stations- Zhongxiao Xinsheng Station and Zhongxiao Fuxing Station. The passengers said it was just like New Year's Eve, where MRT stations are crowded with people waiting for the subway.

Commuter: “The view from above is like a sea of locusts crossing the border. I can't go down to the platform, so I can only wait up top.”

Taipei MRT said that an abnormal braking accident occurred at Jiangzicui Station at about 7:03 a.m., causing a delay of three minutes. Coincidentally, there was also an abnormal circuit signal on the track at Fuzhong Station. According to the SOP, crowd control went into effect at five stations on the Bannan Line including Longshan Temple, Jiangzicui, Xinpu, Zhongxiao Fuxing, and Zhongxiao Xinsheng. The control was lifted at about 9:30 a.m.

Ling Chi-yao, Director, Customer Service Center, Taipei MRT: “Passengers reported a burnt smell in the car. According to SOP, the control center at Jiangzicui station asked about 1,000 passengers on the carriage to exit and take the next subway. The delay time was about three minutes.”

Commuter: “I waited for trains to get on because there were too many people. I was almost half an hour late getting back to Nangang.”

Taipei MRT said it adjusted the train schedule and dispatched some trains to alleviate the crowd on the Bannan Line. The detailed cause of the failure will be announced after a further investigation.

 

 

台北捷運板南線,濃濃白煙從車廂不斷竄出,還瀰漫著刺鼻燒焦味,乘客紛紛下車躲避。21日上午7點多,北捷運板南線,發生剎車異常,當時車上約一千名乘客,被迫在江子翠站下車。

因當時上班時間,不只江子翠站,下車人潮擠爆,包括忠孝新生站、忠孝興站,大型轉運站點,就像跨年跨年倒數一樣,候車人潮塞爆捷運站。

北捷通勤民眾:「從上面看下來,就是人山人海蝗蟲過境,月來下面是走不進去 只能在上面等。」

北捷表示,江子翠站大約在7點03分,發生煞車異常事故, 延誤時間約3分鐘,無獨有偶,府中站,也發生軌道電路訊號異常,依照SOP,針對板南線,龍山寺、江子翠、新埔、忠孝新生、忠孝復興這五個站點,進行人潮管制,大約9點30分解除管制。


台北捷運公司行政處客服中心主任凌啟堯說:「旅客反應車上有焦味,行控中心依照SOP在江子翠站,請車上約1000位旅客下車,改搭下一班車 延誤時間約3分鐘

北捷通勤民眾說:「等好幾班車才能上車,因為人太多了,變成我回到南港那邊,都已經快遲到半個小時。

北捷表示,板南線透過調整列車班距,並調度部分列車,縮短往市區方向班距。至於列車故障詳細原因,還要進一步檢查後公布。
