New York City transit chief Andy Byford is reportedly going to unveil a plan to revamp the subway’s outdated signal system.
The subway signal system project could cost up to $20 billion as it is has not seen updates since the 1930s, according to a report from MetroUs.
Byford plans to install the signal system at all 472 stations. At the Regional Plan Summit, Byford supported the idea of funding the $20 billion subway signal system project by charging congestion pricing.
The British born Byford has helped improve the transport systems for London, Toronto and Sydney.
