A Crossrail train saw doors opening on the wrong side as it arrived at Stratford station this evening.
Doors opened onto tracks rather than the platform which is a major no-no. Passengers were disembarked and the train taken out of service.

The issue could have been driver error (is that possible on new stock?) or more problems with Crossrail trains which have been beset with reliability faults.
One major cause of the Elizabeth Line’s delay is rolling stock signalling issues though that’s not the only problem. Reliability has been poor in a number of areas.
If this is a rolling stock problem that’s more issues to add to the pile. It could well mean all stock withdrawn for investigation which is not the best when they should be replacing 40 year old stock in east London.
