Joseph Leader, Senior Vice President for the Department of Subways, said, "All subway stakeholders win with FASTRACK. Workers have a better and safer work environment, customers benefit from improved train service and reliability, and New York City Transit saves money by getting more work done in less time."
During our previous FASTRACK in January 2014, with train service suspended along a five-mile section of the Queens Boulevard line, teams of subway maintenance personnel were busy working in the tunnels and stations between Roosevelt Av and 5 Av/53 St and 21st Street-Queensbridge. Work crews took full advantage of an uninterrupted seven-hour window and completed many tasks which ranged from electronic maintenance, track, infrastructure and station maintenance. Electronic maintenance was performed on 163 public address system speakers. Track workers generated 1,743 bags of debris, removed 33,150 pounds of scrap debris, scraped and cleaned 13,495 linear feet of track, and installed 170 friction pads and 368 track tie plates, and cleaned 9,300 feet of track under and around the third rail. Infrastructure workers repaired or replaced 25 feet of handrail, replaced 555 emergency light bulbs, cleaned 150 feet of drain line, performed maintenance in a pump plant, and cleaned and repaired 150 feet of bench wall. At stations, workers replaced 195 light bulbs, scraped 9,300 square feet of paintable surface, and primed 3,800 square feet.
FASTRACK has been designed around the careful determination that there is adequate alternate means of transportation, including enhanced services along some bus lines during work periods. Alternative transportation options will be detailed in announcements and posters on trains, in stations and on selected buses; brochures will be available in both English and Spanish.
