The NJ TRANSIT (NJT) Board of Directors have approved the purchase of 25 additional Multilevel III rail cars in support of the Portal North Bridge Project.
The grants will help commuter rail authorities in California, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington eliminate hazards at highway-railway crossings.
The project involved the installation of 1.5 miles of a new, electrified main line third track, enabling Amtrak to eliminate a previous two track bottleneck.
U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Elaine L. Chao, has announced $291 million in ‘State of Good Repair’ grants to improve the reliability and safety of America’s rail network.
Platform extensions will see stations able to accommodate three-car trains carrying more passengers.
By federal law in the US, all states where rail transit systems operate must have a Federal Transit Administration (FTA)-certified State Safety Oversight (SSO) Program by 15 April 2019 and Ohio has become the first state to do so.
