Metro-North Switch Testing and Inspections

MTA/OIG #2016-06

This letter report examines the actions that Signals took as of April 2016 to help ensure that employees are performing federally mandated inspections on a timely basis and accurately documenting the performance of such inspections. OIG also recommends additional actions to further strengthen its recordkeeping practices, in both the near-term (while Signals still relies on paper inspections) as well as after Metro- North implements an electronic system for recording inspections.
