Updated on March 25, 2021

Building a Better T
As part of our $8 billion, 5-year capital investment plan, we're renovating stations, modernizing fare collection systems, upgrading services for our buses, subways, and ferries, and improving the accessibility of the entire system.
Why We’re Doing This Work
The crossovers that allow trains to move from Wellington Yard onto the main tracks are nearing the end of their useful life and are in need of replacement. This work is necessary to support the new Orange Line trains coming into service—the new crossovers will provide access to the vehicle test track and will help ensure a smooth transition to and from the main line.
Replacing the tracks will also help improve safety and reliability of the Orange Line.
