Malfunctioning boom gate causing problems


A malfunction of the BOOM gate at one of Adelaide's busiest junctions has wreaked havoc during Monday morning's peak – but the problem has now been resolved.

The barrier gates at the intersection of the Cruz and Sul roads near Emerson Station began to malfunction after 8 am Monday morning.

This caused delays in both directions on Cross Rd before being repaired shortly after 10am.

Residents report that transport workers were forced to manually raise barriers to allow vehicles to pass before releasing them again for train services to pass.

Train services on the Tonsley and Seaford lines were also affected.

Drivers can also expect some residual delays.
