Fog wreaks havoc on already struggling network

Thick fog that blanketed much of Brisbane has compounded delays to the public transport network following early morning bus strikes across the river city.

Translink had hoped scheduling extra CityCat services would have alleviated issues caused by the bus strikes, but instead fog cut services during peak hour resulting in delays of more than 30 minutes.

 

RACQ’s Lauren Ritchie said warned motorists to expect a slower commute not just because of the foggy conditions.

“We’re seeing delays on most of the major roads due to limited visibility,” Ms Ritchie said.

“We wouldn’t be surprised if peak congestion lasted longer with public transport commuters forced to find alternatives like taxis or Uber to get to work.

“If you are driving, remember to switch on your lights and try and keep your cool. There will be delays, but it’s better to arrive late than not to arrive at all.”
