    They keep mentioning these stakeholder meetings, agreements, issues that have/are being worked out, and just a few more details to iron out before the appeals are withdrawn and everything is happy for MyFigueroa… except there have been more real detail on what the concessions have been or what the further details to iron out are. While there are references to compromises and win-win agreements, there’s really no details on what these are.

  • Joe Linton

    I agree (the press hasn’t been invited to these meetings, either.) I think that it’s critical that we keep public attention on this. SBLA will follow-up with bike non-profit folks we know who are part of the closed door working group.

  • Salts

    If film la and auto-dealers see a “win-win,” this is really a “win-lose” with people walking, bicycling, and using transit on the losing end. The plan was already severely compromised when selfish, auto-centrists complained and objected to improving the comfort and safety of “the other.”

  • I wonder what role the overweight AnsaldoBreda Light Rail Cars may have played in the cracks in the viaduct…

  • davistrain

    Bridges are usually designed with a safety factor that allows for a margin of error in the weight of trains. There’s a sub-group of electric railway fans who never miss an opportunity to criticize the Breda cars, but I don’t think their extra weight would result in damage to structures that were OK when the Siemens cars were running.
