Re: Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo

Posted by Marc A. Rivlin on Thu Jan 3 16:02:02 2019, in response to Re: Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo, posted by AlM on Thu Jan 3 15:23:31 2019.

From the Times article: "A key provision of the alternative plan eliminates the need to replace major portions of the bench wall, which runs along the side of the tunnel and houses electrical cables. The cables were corroded because of damage from Sandy, Mr. Cuomo said.

"Instead, using what engineers referred to as a “racking system,” new cables would be mounted on the side of one wall and wrapped in protective material. A new power and control system would be installed and the old cables housed the bench wall would no longer be needed."

The articles to which Kevin linked provide more detail.
