Pieces also fell off the West End Line and it still holding up. Crumbling concrete doesn't mean the steel underneath is compromised. Doesn't mean the ENTIRE structure needs replacement. Looks can be deceiving, you can take apart the concrete and replace the rusted rebar and put up new concrete and everything is fine. Concrete can be replaced and steel can be too. Repairing it is far cheaper and far more realistic than replacing the entire structure. I guarantee you the engineer will say "its not safe for trains at this time, when we replace defective sections it will be ready"
