The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) is thinking about constructing a Metrorail heavy restore and overhaul facility in Landover, Maryland, and is looking for public comments on the idea.
The facility could feature-heavy restore and overhaul provider bays to accommodate up to 40 rail cars; car garage tracks to deal with up to 24 rail cars;
a traction strength substation; and operations and administrative offices. The proposed shop might offer additional rail-car preservation capacity and accommodate an increase in demand for additional song preservation and associated system, WMATA officials stated in a press release.
The facility could hook up with the Orange Line between Landover and New Carrollton, Maryland. The 37-acre website includes numerous properties with light business activities.
Public comments could be submitted to WMATA’s board in May. If the board approves the undertaking, belongings acquisition would be vital for the power, WMATA officials said.
