Vandalism At Timperley Causes An Outage On The Metrolink

Metrolink suspends all services on the Altrincham line after vandalism at Timperley caused a huge outage this afternoon Sept 8.

A Metrolink engineer told news4trafford that “Someone had thrown jump leads onto the overhead cables”

Metrolink did confirm that vandalism was the cause of the suspension and an investigation is underway.


Two trams were stuck on the line at Timperley one going towards Altrincham was already at the stop, the other was around 100 yards away going towards Timperley station, it is our guess that people had to walk to Timperley station.

The Altrincham line is now back up and running with some delays after the outage.
