Train passengers have been warned to expect delays on Sydney's T8 Airport and South Line until Thursday after a car careered into signalling equipment and caused extensive damage.

The driver of a Honda Accord crashed through a 2-metre boundary fence at the intersection of Romilly Street and Broadarrow Road at Riverwood at 1.55am on Monday after failing to negotiate a bend, hitting a location cabinet containing hundreds of wires for the signalling system on the T8 Line.

The Greater Manchester Police force said Friday that police "received a report that an airline pilot may have been under the influence of alcohol" at the airport in northwestern England on Thursday morning. Officers arrested a 62-year-old man on suspicion of performing an aviation function while over the prescribed alcohol limit. Police say the man, whose name was not released, has been bailed pending further inquiries.

'No sugar-coating this': Car crash to cause delays on airport line until Thursday© Sydney Trains The car crash at Riverwood damaged train signalling equipment. The incident has forced Sydney Trains to switch from automated to manual signalling along a stretch of the T8 Line, which in turn means trains have to travel slowly on tracks in and around Riverwood. The location cabinet is linked to four signal boxes on the southbound line.

It has resulted in delays of up to 15 minutes on the T8 Line, and has also caused minor disruptions on the T2 Inner West and T3 Bankstown lines. Replacement buses have been put on to ferry passengers to intermediate stations on the T8 Line to Campbelltown.

After hitting the location cabinet, the motorist unsuccessfully tried to reverse the car. He fled moments later when a resident who had come to assist told him she was calling police.

Thursday Lyrics. "Understanding In A Car Crash ". Splintered piece of glass falls, in the seat, gets caught These broken windows, open locks, reminders of the youth we lost In trying so hard to look away from you we followed white lines to the sunset I crash my car everyday the same way.

Until the crash of Air France Flight 4590 in 2000, Concorde had been considered among the world's safest planes.[21] The crash of the Concorde contributed to the end of the aircraft's career.[22]. A few days after the crash , all Concordes were grounded, pending an investigation into the cause of the

'No sugar-coating this': Car crash to cause delays on airport line until Thursday© Kate Geraghty Sydney Trains chief executive Howard Collins warns it will take until Thursday to fix the damage. Sydney Trains chief executive Howard Collins said engineers would spend the next three days rewiring equipment, and changes would be made to the rail timetable to minimise train delays.

"If you're going to the airport I would recommend you allow 10 to 15 minutes extra to ensure you get your flight. Our engineers are on site focusing on the big job of replacing this whole cabinet. This costs hundreds of thousands of dollars," he said.

Mr Collins said it was fortunate that the car did not career over a 3-metre drop and onto the rail tracks. "If he'd come up there with a fast train it would be pretty bad for everybody involved," he said. "We will review the protection of these boxes."

Transport Minister Andrew Constance urged the driver to turn himself into police.

"You've caused enormous grief to commuters for the next few days. It is likely to be Thursday morning ... until we have a fully operating T8 Line," he said.

"The challenge is not so much the lines into the city; the challenge is the lines back to the suburbs. This is a major incident on the network – there is no sugar-coating this."

Mr Constance said the impact of the incident was akin to losing four sets of traffic lights on Elizabeth Street, a busy thoroughfare in Sydney's CBD.

Sydney Trains recently carried out a review of the rail corridor in an effort to improve barrier protection and security measures.

About a dozen vehicles have entered the city's rail corridor over the past year.

Jet fighter forced to make emergency landing at Brisbane Airport.
An Australian Air Force strike fighter jet has been forced to perform an emergency landing at Brisbane Airport. The twin-engine F/A-18 Super Hornet supersonic combat jet, code-named Carbine 21, issued a mayday call to air traffic control at Brisbane Airport to say it did not have the necessary fuel to complete a 60km trip to RAAF Base Amberley. Air traffic control quickly advised commercial pilots there would be a delay due to the fighter jet making an emergency landing. International flights were diverted and passenger planes were put into a holding pattern to give the jet priority to land.
