The Taoyuan Airport MRT line has been experiencing power trips and fires in the past two years.

The Taoyuan airport mass rapid transit (MRT) line has suffered 14 power trips that subsequently caused fires in less than two years. This is the word from the Railway Bureau on Tuesday.

In 2020 alone, there have been eight power trips as of July, and the Railway Bureau says the warranty for the cables used in the airport MRT line expires in August. The bureau has asked the Japanese company Hitachi to resolve the problem and install new cables for the entire line.
