WASHINGTON, DC—Connecticut’s Congressional Delegation released the following statement today applauding the Federal Railroad Administration’s announcement they are conducting a thorough analysis of every aspect of the Metro-North Commuter Railroad. The analysis, Operation Deep Dive, will take 60 days and is a response to a series of accidents dating back to March.
“This is a badly needed and overdue first step to address the specifics of recent Metro-North accidents and how to reduce their likelihood in the future,” the delegation said. “We expect changes to be made based on the results of this analysis and will hold people’s feet to the fire to ensure that they are. The safety of travelers remains our number one priority.”
