Thousands of People Said They Wanted New Light Rail Lines FasterAnd Now Sound Transit Has a Bigger, Better ST3 Plan

Two months ago, Sound Transit unveiled its most ambitious light rail package ever: $50 billion, 58 new miles of rail, long-awaited new lines in the city to Ballard and West Seattle. But as the agency took its plan out to the public for feedback, one factor was undermining even the most enthusiastic light rail supporters’ excitement about the package, known as Sound Transit 3: It was going to take too damn long. Light rail wouldn’t reach Ballard until 2038 or Everett until 2041.

.

In 35,000 responses to an online survey and thousands more e-mails and letters, “the message we heard was simply ‘build light rail faster,'” Sound Transit board chair and King County executive Dow Constantine said recently.

.

So the agency is back with an improved version of ST3 that officials say will deliver light rail faster for the same annual cost to taxpayers. Citing a new financial analysis, Sound Transit is promising to borrow more money sooner, allowing it to shave years off some of the project timelines. The changes add $4 billion to the package and they improve timelines, add stations, and make an important change to Seattle’s Ballard line. The highlights:

.

A line to West Seattle would come online in 2030 instead of 2033, and the line to Ballard would be finished by 2035 instead of 2038.

.

Instead of building light rail to Ballard alongside traffic on 15th Avenue, the agency would elevate the line through that area. That change would make that line more reliable and add about $150 million to the package. (Some want to go even further and build a pricey tunnel under Salmon Bay for this line, but the agency shows little appetite for that.)

.

Stations at Graham Street in South Seattle and Boeing Access Road in Tukwila would be done in 2031 instead of 2036.

.

The agency would build a new station at 130th Street in North Seattle after finishing light rail to Northgate, which is currently under construction. This is a big win for advocates in North Seattle, including new Council Member Debora Juarez, who represents North Seattle and has been adamant about this station. Juarez called the news “a giant step forward.”

French SNCF rail said 40 percent of its high-speed trains and more than half of regional trains were canceled Wednesday because of the stoppages called by three rail worker trade unions.

.

Commuter trains serving Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport were also impacted.

.

International rail services to Britain and Germany were not due to be affected, but the majority of trains to Spain and Italy were likely to be canceled. The disturbances begin within 10 days of the start of the Euro 2016 football tournament.

.

A spokesman for Hollande’s Socialist party accused the powerful CGT union of embarrassing the country.

.

The conservative former president, Nicolas Sarkozy, said the government had lost control in its handling of the intended reforms.

.

Widespread protest since March last week led to some petrol pumps running dry owing to blockades by union activists. Oil terminal workers at Le Havre – which supplies kerosene to Paris’s two main airports – also voted to extend their blockade into Wednesday.

.

Despite the disruption, 46 percent of French people still supported the unions’ calls, a poll in the Journal du Dimanche showed Sunday.

House Members Refuse Washington Subway Systems Plea for More Funds

WASHINGTON  House Republicans told the leaders of the capitals beleaguered subway system on Wednesday that they would not bail you out, soundly rejecting pleas for more federal funds to support it.

.

Instead, members of two House subcommittees responsible for oversight of the system, known as Metro, instructed its leaders to make significant organizational reforms and physical repairs before asking for more money.

.

Im not here to make up for bad management. Im not here to make up for a poor safety record. Im not here to make up for a lack of action, said Representative John L. Mica, Republican of Florida, who leads one of the subcommittees, amid a sharp exchange with Metros chairman, Jack Evans.

.

You are dealing with people who are broke, Mr. Mica said, referring to the federal government. I am not going to bail you out.

.

The declaration came as lawmakers questioned the agencys leaders and federal safety oversight officials on a wide range of safety and management concerns brought to the forefront by an unexpected closure of the system last month for an emergency inspection.

.

The 40-year-old system, once the envy of cities across the country, has been shaken in recent years by mounting concerns over dangerous, aging infrastructure and its finances. Conditions have deteriorated so significantly on some lines that Metros leaders have suggested widespread closures for extended periods could be necessary to complete repairs.

Washington Metro, 40 and Creaking, Stares at a Midlife Crisis

WASHINGTON  Jack Evans was a summer intern here in 1976, the year Metro, the capital regions subway system, opened to rave reviews. It was an architectural triumph, with escalators that plunged into clean, well-lit stations  a mass transit marvel like The Jetsons,  he says  a far cry from the graffiti-scarred, decrepit system of that era in New York.

.

Now Mr. Evans, 62, is the chairman of the transit agency that oversees Metro  perhaps the citys least enviable job. Last week, at a conference examining Metro on its 40th birthday, he said out loud what Washingtonians had known for years: The capitals once-glorious subway system, the nations second busiest, is short on cash and a terrible mess.

.

Its a system thats maybe safe, somewhat unreliable, and that is being complained about by everybody, declared Mr. Evans, who estimates that Metro could face a $100 million budget shortfall next fiscal year.

.

Then he dropped a bombshell. He warned that whole lines may have to be closed for months for repairs, adding, If we do nothing, 10 years from now the system wont be running.

.

At a time of deepening concern over aging infrastructure and rail safety around the nation  on Sunday, an Amtrak train struck a backhoe on the tracks outside Philadelphia, killing two people and injuring dozens more Metro is hardly the only transit agency with problems. But years of well-documented safety lapses, including a crash in 2009 that left nine people dead, as well as petty annoyances like broken escalators and train delays, reveal how a grand vision of American liberalism has collided with reality now that Metro has hit middle age.

.

The Federal Transit Administration has issued a blistering indictment of the system, warning in a June report of serious safety lapses. That month, the National Transportation Safety Board convened hearings revealing that employees of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority  which runs Metro, as well as a regional bus service  often felt afraid to report safety concerns.

.

Commuters are frustrated and are abandoning the subway. Weekday ridership declined 6.1 percent in the last half of 2015, Metro officials say, compared with the same period the previous year. Metros new general manager, Paul J. Wiedefeld, who shut down service last month for a daylong emergency inspection after a tunnel fire similar to one that killed a passenger in January 2015, concedes that the public is losing faith.

.

Clearly in the public mind we have lost credibility in both delivery of the service and some of the safety issues, Mr. Wiedefeld, 60, said Friday in a surprisingly blunt interview. He said he saw Metros safety and reliability problems as rooted in a very large disconnect between front-line employees and management, and in a culture in need of an overhaul.

.

An organization that had such a proud history has lost it internally, to a degree, Mr. Wiedefeld said. That is something we have to rekindle.

Metro-North Plans To Connect Penn Station And Grand Central

NEW HAVEN  Metro-North riders could be within six years of choosing to commute to Penn Station or Grand Central Terminal, a prospect that the railroad says will expand capacity and convenience.

.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority plans $10 billion of construction to connect the country’s two busiest commuter rail lines to both Manhattan stations.

.

The work will be done primarily in Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx, but stands to have a big impact on Connecticut commuters. If all goes according to plan, it would let New Haven line riders with jobs on the West Side choose a Penn-bound Metro-North train, sparing the need for a daily cross-town walk or subway, bus or cab trip.

.

New York state officials last week endorsed the project as part of the MTA’s overall long-term capital plan, which MTA Chairman Thomas Prendergast praised as showing that “public transport is the backbone and lifeline of the region’s economy.”

.

U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal agreed the decision to go ahead with the East Side Access project could help Connecticut commuters, but stressed that it must be done in conjunction with the MTA’s second major commuter train operation, the Long Island Rail Road

.

“This is good news, but only if it’s done right,” said Blumenthal, who plans to talk with Prendergast this week. “Routing Metro-North into Penn Station would be welcome, but it has to be part of routing the LIRR into Grand Central.”

.

Currently, Metro-North can use only Grand Central, while the Long Island Rail Road can reach only Penn. That puts tens of thousands of commuters in the wrong part of the city every day, leaving them to either walk or take cabs, subways or buses to reach their jobs.

.

Both stations are packed at rush hour, and the MTA says neither has the space to accommodate more trains for the steadily growing ridership on both railroads. Its plan is to build an entirely new level of platforms and tracks beneath the lowest floor of Grand Central, and route some of the LIRR’s trains there.

M.T.A. Spending Plan Restores Funding for 2nd Ave. Subway

By EMMA G. FITZSIMMONS

The Metropolitan Transportation Authoritys board approved a new version of its long-delayed capital plan on Wednesday, allocating money for system upgrades and expansion projects and restoring funding for the next phase of the Second Avenue subway line.

.

The $29.5 billion spending plan calls for hundreds of new train cars and buses and a new fare-payment system to replace the MetroCard. With ridership booming on New York Citys aging subway system, the authority also devoted funding for station improvements and updated signal systems to allow more trains to operate.

.

The agency promised $1 billion for plans to extend the Second Avenue subway to East Harlem  about $500 million more than an earlier proposal set aside. About $2.5 billion would be devoted to the East Side Access project, which would connect the Long Island Rail Road to Grand Central Terminal.

.

Thomas F. Prendergast, the authoritys chairman, said he was confident that a state review board would approve the revised proposal in the next month. The capital plan will modernize the regions vast transportation network and make sure that it is safe and reliable, he said.

.

This is a monumental win for the people of New York, Mr. Prendergast said at a board meeting in Lower Manhattan.

.

But even as board members praised the proposal, they questioned how the state and city would pay their share. Last year, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, both Democrats, reached a funding deal only after months of quarreling over whether the city should pay more.

.

The state agreed to pay $8.3 billion toward the capital plan over five years, and the city agreed to pay $2.5 billion over the same period. The rest is expected to be paid for by the federal government and other sources.

Surge in Ridership Pushes New York Subway to Limit

For New Yorkers who rely on the 86th Street subway station on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the morning commute is a humbling experience. An endless stream of people funnel onto the platforms. Trains arrive with a wall of humanity already blocking the doorways.

.

As No. 6 trains pull into the upper level of the station, riders scan for an opening and, if they can, squeeze in for a suffocating ride downtown.

.

“You can wait four or five subways to get on, and you’re just smushed,” Cynthia Hallenbeck, the chief financial officer at a nonprofit, said before boarding a train on a recent morning.

.

The Lexington Avenue line is the most crowded in the system, but subway riders across New York City are finding themselves on platforms and trains that are beyond crowded. L train stations in Brooklyn are routinely overwhelmed. In Queens, No. 7 train riders regularly endure packed conditions.

.

Subway use, now at nearly 1.8 billion rides a year, has not been this high since 1948, when the fare was a nickel and the Dodgers were still almost a decade away from leaving Brooklyn. Today, train delays are rising, and even a hiccup like a sick passenger or a signal malfunction can inundate stations with passengers.

.

Delays caused by overcrowding have quadrupled since 2012 to more than 20,000 each month, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

.

The crowded trains can make for tense commutes, contributing to an uptick in assaults among disgruntled passengers, the transit police say. With crowds lining the platform edge, some riders and train operators worry that someone could fall onto the tracks.

.

And with summer approaching, the imposed intimacy will soon be even less welcome, as platform temperatures climb into the 80s and 90s.

.

“In terms of physical discomfort and feeling that life stinks in the subway, this is the No. 1 culprit,” said Gene Russianoff, the longtime leader of the Straphangers Campaign, a rider advocacy group.

Why Subways in the Northeast Are So Troubled

The unprecedented safety shutdown of Washingtons subway for a day in March laid bare the deteriorating conditions that created a crisis.

.

But the Metro, which opened four decades ago and shaped the Washington region, is not the only transit system in the Northeastern United States showing its age.

.

The subways in New York City and Boston, both more than half a century older than the system in Washington, need billions of dollars to replace aging infrastructure and to meet rising demand. All three cities, home to most of the nations busiest subways, are growing and attracting young people, who prefer mass transit but have become frustrated by delays.

.

As transit officials in Boston, New York and Washington focus on improving the subways, their efforts are being closely watched by planners and business groups who fear economic growth in the region could slow if the systems cannot keep up.

.

These are mega-systems with mega-sized challenges, and there is not going to be a silver bullet, said Adie Tomer, a fellow at the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution.

.

Frequent disruptions have left riders stranded on trains and scrambling to make it to work on time. In the Washington area, people are preparing for widespread closings while repairs are made. In New York, Brooklyn residents are alarmed by the possibility of a yearlong shutdown of the L subway tunnel to Manhattan. In Boston, the crowded Red Line is periodically upended by technical problems and other issues.

.

This month, President Obama tied the Metros problems to a broader lack of investment in infrastructure across the country, like the water pipes in Flint, Mich., and crumbling roads and bridges.

.

It is just one more example of the underinvestments that have been made, Mr. Obama said at a news conference. Look, the D.C. Metro historically has been a great strength of this region. But over time, we underinvested in maintenance and repair.

.

The Federal Transit Administration found that public transit systems have a backlog of $86 billion in critical maintenance nationwide. Officials pushed for infrastructure funding on Capitol Hill recently as part of Infrastructure Week, an annual series of events to highlight the issue.

.

The Northeasts three major subway systems, which have the most riders in the country along with Chicagos, are similarly struggling with dilapidated equipment, funding concerns and knotty political dynamics. In New York and Boston, officials have encountered an additional hurdle: natural disasters.

.

Hurricane Sandy flooded New Yorks subway in 2012, damaging several tunnels under the East River. The Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn is reeling over plans for an 18-month shutdown for hurricane-related repairs to the L train tunnel. In Boston, an onslaught of snow in 2015 paralyzed the transit system and brought attention to problems at the regional network.

.

All three cities have seen population growth and remain top destinations for millennials, many of whom eschew driving a car. New York recently hit 8.5 million residents, while the Washington metropolitan area has grown to more than six million people and the Boston metropolitan area has topped 4.7 million.

Tiger Temple: Forty Dead Tiger Cubs Found at Thai Temple

BBC News

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-36390419

.

.

Police and wildlife officials started an operation on Monday to remove all the living tigers at the Tiger Temple.

.

Pictures from journalists at the scene posted to social media showed the 40 cubs lined up on the floor.

.

The site in Kanchanaburi is a popular tourist attraction but has been closed to the public since the raid.

.

Police colonel Bandith Meungsukhum told AFP news agency that wildlife officials would file new criminal charges after the discovery, and added that the cubs were just one or two days old when they died.

.

He said it was not yet clear how long they had been dead for.

.

The dead cubs “must be of some value for the temple”, Adisorn Nuchdamrong, from Thailand’s Department of National Parks, told Reuters news agency. “But for what is beyond me.”

.

Tiger bones and body parts are used in traditional Chinese medicine.

Thailand Officials Find 40 Dead Tiger Cubs in Temple Freezer

BANGKOK  The Thai wildlife authorities found 40 dead tiger cubs in a freezer on Wednesday at the Tiger Temple, a controversial tourist attraction in western Thailand, and were investigating whether the carcasses were evidence of the temples involvement in the illegal wildlife trade.

.

The discovery came as Thai wildlife rangers were removing adult tigers from the temple in an effort to shut down the attraction after receiving complaints that the temple was trafficking in endangered species.

.

The temple, a Buddhist monastery that offered paying tourists close contact with tigers, has long been accused by conservationists and animal rights activists of exploiting and abusing the animals, accusations the temple has denied.

.

Wildlife officials said that only one of the dead cubs found on Wednesday had been reported to the government as required and that the police were investigating. Tiger parts, while illegal to sell, are in high demand in Asia, particularly China, for use in traditional medicine.

.

However, representatives of the temple, Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua, said that Thailands Wildlife Conservation Office had been notified of all of the cubs births and deaths and that the bodies were kept as proof that none of them were sold on the black market.

.

We have declared all the deaths to the officials over years, said Supitpong Pakdjarung, a former police colonel who runs the temples business operation. Theyve known about these carcasses for a long time.

Cincinnati Gorilla Incident: Police Investigating Boy’s Family

By Dominique Dodley, Sarah Jorgensen and Steve Visser

CNN

Updated 2:13 AM ET, Wed June 1, 2016

http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/31/us/gorilla-shot-harambe/

.

.

(CNN)The family of a boy who entered a Cincinnati Zoo gorilla’s enclosure last weekend — spurring zoo officials to shoot and kill the animal — will be the focus of an investigation into the incident, Cincinnati police said Tuesday.

.

The 3-year-old boy was dragged across a moat by the 450-pound gorilla on Saturday. After a 10-minute encounter, Cincinnati Zoo officials shot and killed the beloved and endangered gorilla, named Harambe. The boy was not seriously injured.

.

Cincinnati police said Tuesday that their review “is only regarding the actions of the parents/family that led up to the incident and not related to the operation or safety of the Cincinnati Zoo.”

.

“After the review, we will determine if charges need to be brought forward,” police spokeswoman Tiffaney Hardy said. “If it is determined charges need to be brought forward, we would then discuss it with the Hamilton County prosecutor’s office.”

.

Authorities have said the boy’s mother was with the child at the time he slipped past a fence and tumbled into the moat.

.

Julie Wilson, spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office, declined to say how long the investigation might take.

.

The Association of Zoos and Aquariums, an accrediting agency, also announced that it was investigating the Harambe episode. “We’ll of course be taking a closer look at that working with Cincinnati to figure out what happened and make sure we can firm that up so it doesn’t happen again,” said to Rob Vernon, spokesman for the AZA.

.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture, which inspects the zoo annually, said it will determine whether the incident happened because the zoo was not in compliance with the Animal Welfare Act , according to Public Affairs Specialist Tanya Espinosa.

.

“There is no time frame for looking into an incident or determining whether to open an investigation,” Espinosa said. “We want to ensure that we are thorough.”

.

CNN independently reviewed USDA records for the last three years, which is all that is maintained by the agency, and found nine findings where the zoo was out of compliance although none involved the gorilla exhibit.

Animal rights groups demands feds investigate

.

An animal rights group announced Tuesday that it had requested an investigation by the USDA. The letter from Michael A. Budkie , executive director of Stop Animal Exploitation Now, alleges the Harambe tragedy occurred because the zoo, “maintained an enclosure that violated the Animal Welfare Act,” according to the letter obtained by CNN. It does not explain how the zoo violated the act.

.

The letter from the animal rights group cites what it says are Animal Welfare Act violations and includes copies of USDA inspection reports from March 2016 and November 2014, which CNN also located independently in the USDA database.
