Improving Inspections of New York City Transit Stations
DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 25 pages
On Aug. 16, 2009 in New York City, at 10:18 p.m., a large section of the arched brick ceiling at the 181st St. Station on the IRT 1 Line fell onto the platforms and tracks. Fortunately, no one was injured by the falling bricks, and subway service to the station was immediately suspended. New York City Transit (NYCT) then temporarily secured the ceiling to protect customers and trains from additional falling debris and reopened the station for subway service on Aug. 31, 2009. The objectives of this audit report were to determine whether NYCT is: Adequately conducting structural inspections of its stations; Properly coordinating station inspections; and Performing structural inspections of all stations and station components on a frequent, regular basis.
