Some Fixes to the T

Not enough, but moving in the right direction.

"Columbia Junction has been identified as the number one cause of signal failures among all signal failures on the line," Daniel A. Grabauskas, the T's general manager, said yesterday. Last year, 25 percent of the 528 failures on the Red Line were blamed on the equipment at Columbia Junction, between JFK/UMass and Andrew stations.

It could cost 65 million, but it should cut back delays by 60%. Funding of the fix wasn't mentioned in the article.

The state of our transportation systems is just scary. It's as if we're a condo association that refuses year after year to address the roof.
