THE failure of a new $9.5 million rail management computer system left delayed commuters confused and frustrated yesterday.
Hundreds of people were delayed by up to 40 minutes during the evening peak at Adelaide Railway Station last night and, as television monitors showing train times went out of operation, loud-speaker announcements of departures caused mass rushes between platforms.
TransAdelaide was last night forced to revert to the system the new software replaced on Sunday, because new software had affected signal information.
Three train drivers who were stood down yesterday for allegedly driving through red signals will resume work after it was found the mistake was not driver error, but the software problem.
TransAdelaide general manager Bill Watson last night insisted the problem "doesn't affect commuter safety".
"The company in Sydney who designed the software will run tests this week and we will make a decision as to whether to run it again next weekend," he said.
Transport Minister Patrick Conlon said he believed that TransAdelaide was doing all it could to assist commuters, and that he would ask for a report on the problem today.
