The Romanian Railways CFR Infrastructura said a technical malfunction occurred at the power system of the traffic signaling and safety installation on the Bucharest-Ploiesti railway segment.

The malfunction was repaired by 11:00, and trains were expected to gradually return to their regular schedule.
