LOS ANGELES METRO GETS A SLOW ORDER

After 3 decades of rail transit construction postponements, Southern California Rapid Transit District's latest 18-mile subway construction project is again on hold. Although legislation has guaranteed state and local funding for a system that eventually could extend 160 miles, UMTA has not been willing to guarantee its funding for even a segmented project that would initially construct an 8.8-mile line, the minimum that is operationally practicable. Without UMTA action, there is now prospect of loss of local support. Meanwhile SCRTD has designated its design consultants and construction managers. There are descriptions of tunnel construction methods with provision for earthquake faults, stations, power supply, standardized cars and fare collection.
