Re: New MTA statement on L-train project

The fiberglass encapsulates the duct bank and contains any crumbling cement within it. This prevents any duct bank pieces from falling on the track.

From the Verge article: "The MTA would also install fiber-optic sensors and LIDAR laser sensors to detect any impending failures in the bench wall, so the agency can send in workers to reinforce those section as needed."

I feel like you're glossing over this part of the proprosal. Presumably if installing the fiberglass covering were effective as rebuilding the bench wall, then there wouldn't be any need for the constant monitoring.
