Wonder how long it'll take for backup generators to be installed...

This sort of thing never seems to occur in more weather prone place like Hong Kong etc. The train services are regularly interrupted during peak hour in Perth due to "technical issues" - this another example of poor infrastructure that once again doesn't happen in places like HK...

Quite a laugh considering that the Perth Airport Chief Executive Muppet is obsessed with electricity costs and has almost resorted to pulling lightbulbs out of sockets himself 🤣
