Re: Village Voice Article Explains: The Trains Are Slower Because They Slowed the Trains Down

Posted by Keeping the RAPID in Rapid Transit on Wed Mar 14 01:37:16 2018, in response to Re: Village Voice Article Explains: The Trains Are Slower Because They Slowed the Trains Down, posted by 3-9 on Tue Mar 13 18:01:00 2018.

That 'slowdown' isn't the result of worker deaths, but 'track flagging' protecting workers installing a new 'Master Tower' just south of the W 4 St station. From personal experience, work is definitely done there between 9 am and 4 pm Mon-Fri (can't speak about other hours-no knowledge). The slowdown affects both 6 Av and 8 Av trunk lines (A, B, C, D, E, F, M). The rule when moving trains through flagging areas is 10 mph *or less*. Since a t/o will be *majorly disciplined* if found traveling at 11 mph through a work zone, many have decided 'if I go at 5 mph I'll never get in trouble.' :)
