Glasgow Tube collapsed, requiring passengers to be evacuated through a tunnel – causing chaos for TRSNMT revelers trapped on the crowded train.
The outer ring of the city’s busy transport network came to a standstill for about an hour between Kelvinbridge and St George’s Cross this afternoon.
Hundreds of passengers traveling to TRNSMT are understood to have been affected by the disruptions.
One traveler described the scene as “chaotic” as rising temperatures inside the carriages made people unwell.
They told the Scottish Sun: “We were on our way to TRNSMT and the Tube broke down.”
“It was pretty chaotic on board and people looked like they were about to pass out.”
“We waited on the train for about 50 minutes before being rescued by staff.
“The driver didn’t tell us much and just counted our heads while telling us to hold on and be patient.”
Passengers were asked to exit the train and walk through the dark tunnel to the nearest station.
The witness added, “There were older passengers left who could walk the route.”
Service to the Outer Line has since been restored and the subway runs as usual.
An SPT spokesman said, “The Subway Outer Circle has been closed due to a train breakdown.”
“As is usual with a breakdown in the middle of the tunnel, passengers were diverted to the next station.
“All services have now resumed and Subway is running as usual.”
