MBTA fail

[Massachusetts governor Deval] Patrick made the comments this morning during a radio interview as he discussed a new independent report he commissioned that details a decade of neglect at the MBTA. The author of the report, David F. D’Alessandro, went so far this morning as to say he would not ride the Red Line between Harvard Square and Alewife because a water leak has created the potential for a train derailment. ...

The report pointed out that an $80 million project has been delayed to fix the water leak, which has corroded fasteners and allowed the tracks to move out of alignment, presenting "the possibility of train derailment."
