METRO-NORTH SPEED AND CAPACITY IMPROVEMENT STUDY. TASK 3 REPORT. HARLEM LINE: CRESTWOOD TO MT. VERNON WEST
This study identifies improvements to increase the capacity and speed of Metro-North's commuter rail system. Several key segments of the system where bottlenecks are likely to occur were selected because capacity and speed improvements will have the greatest impact on improved operations and the quality of services. Specifically, the goals of the study are: Develop facility, right-of-way, interlocking, signal and communications, electric traction and equipment improvements required to achieve increased capacity and speeds; Develop operations and low-cost capital improvements which can reduce station dwell times or other capacity constraints; and Evaluate the proposed improvements to determine their cost-effectiveness and prioritize them based on cost and the number of passengers who would benefit, as well as the magnitude of these benefits.
