Metro completes more NTSB recommendations

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

Metro says it has completed 20 of the 29 recommendations the National Transportation Safety Board made following the 2009 crash of two red line trains that resulted in the deaths of nine people.

Metro said Wednesday that the NTSB had closed seven more of the recommendations, bringing the total recommendations closed to 20. Metro says that of the nine remaining recommendations, four have been submitted to NTSB for closure. The remaining five recommendations involve longer-term projects, including the replacement of the oldest rail cars in the Metro system.

The recommendations Metro announced Wednesday that have been closed include ensuring appropriate coordination between departments to resolve issues before new equipment is purchased.
