Citylink worked through the night last Monday to restore service to two customers after two trolley buses snapped overhead wires including a Citylink cable in the central business district.

The incident caused major vehicle traffic disruptions for several hours, but had only limited effects on Citylink customers.

“It was a reasonably new cable, so there were not many services running through it,” Citylink CEO Neil de Wit says.

“It was a reminder that an aerial network is more fragile but that it is also easier to sort out problems."
