I assume Canberra will have trams fitted with adequate battery power by the
time the wireless section through the Parliamentary precinct is
inaugurated, eliminating the potential unreliability associated with
dependence on a centralised overhead (or APS) power supply. In Wellington,
overhead supply failures in both the light rail-like suburban railway
system and the former trolleybus system accounted for most of the wide-area
service disruptions over the years. Far more significant as a service
disruptor than rare battery fires which affect only individual vehicles.
