Con Edison says Metro-North fix may take three weeks

Consolidated Edison (ED) says it will take two to three weeks to repair a failed power line that snarled a heavily traveled Metro-North train between New York and Connecticut and forced Amtrak to halt some Acela Express service.

Connecticut's governor urges commuters to find alternative means of travel because the small number of trains that are expected to run won’t accommodate residents who regularly travel to NYC.

ED says a 138K-volt cable serving Metro-North equipment failed early this morning, and another feeder that normally serves the line was unavailable because of scheduled repairs.

    ConEd is not currently prepared to meet current service needs in a reliable and timely manner...what happens to commuters as we move forward ... increase in mass transit use is inevitable in a world of climate change.


    What is ConEd's future startegy and operational implementation schedule to reduce electrical system infrastructure risks that imperil connectivity our regional public mass transit infrastructure is to provide...seamlessly.
