Inspectors Report Showed Flaws in Connecticut Train Line

Posted by Paul Levin | Jun 28, 2013 | 0 Comments

The recent collision of two trains in Connecticut, which left more than seventy passengers injured, occurred only two days after an inspector's report noted safety issues with the tracks on which the trains were travelling. According to the report, the area on which the derailment and collision occurred was demonstrating vertical movement when trains passed overhead, though it was not deemed to require emergency repairs.

The commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Transportation, James P. Redeker, noted at a Senate hearing concerning the incident that the amount of funds invested in maintaining the upkeep of the rail systems in the Northeast Corridor have fallen short of what is necessary in order for the tracks to achieve a state of good repair.
