REPORT: Shocking cost revealed of New York City’s plan to install subway elevators
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
New York City is planning to spend $5.5 billion over five years to install elevators throughout the city as part of a $54 billion plan to improve the city’s subway system.
The cost to install elevators in 70 out of the city’s 472 stations will cost about $78 million per station, according to a Metropolitan Transportation Authority estimate. Only about one in four subway stations in the city are presently handicapped-accessible.
The article goes on to state the following:
The high per-station cost is because the MTA needs to build two to three elevators at many of the stops to accommodate riders on each side of the platform. Existing structures will also potentially need to be moved, and the property the elevator will be on will need to be purchased.
