Lightning strike delays train line

The strike caused a power outage at Clarkson and Joondalup stations but trains were able to run to and from Joondalup and Perth.

A Public Transport Authority spokeswomen said a replacement bus service operated between Clarkson and Joondalup for around half an hour until power could be restored. ‘At the end of the day at least it happened at the end of the train line so we could still operate trains from Joondalup into the City,’ she said.
