Additional tracks opening Monday morning at Hoboken Terminal
HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Transit says the full restoration of train service into Hoboken Terminal is about to happen, less than three weeks after a train crash there killed a woman and injured more than 100 people.
The agency says six more tracks will open at 4 a.m. Monday. It also noted that the station’s ticket office has resumed operations.
But officials say tracks 5 and 6 will remain closed as the transit agency continues repairs.
NJ Transit Executive Director Steven Santoro says trains entering the station will now reduce their approach speed from 10 mph to 5 mph for added safety.
In the Sept. 29 crash, the train’s data recorder showed it speeding up and was going twice the 10 mph speed limit just before it crashed.
