Fung Wah buses don't drive on the Leverett Connector, do they?
Lewis Forman notes the latest plunging-vehicle news and wonders:
With another vehicle falling off the Leverett Connector loop and onto a vehicle 70 feet below, is it now time to say that ramp is extremely unsafe? I'm still grappling with how a 3 and a half foot (a personal guess) barrier is supposed to stop a vehicle from going over the edge. Even at low speeds, let alone a heavily loaded tractor trailer.
And why, in our infinite wisdom (don't we have MIT close by?), there wasn't a much safer design done? I'm sure the extra $300,000 or so on the bloated Big Dig project would have gone unnoticed. Kind of like the ceiling tiles in the Ted Williams Tunnel. ...
Yet another Charlestown ramp plunge.
