“Anger grows over design of green line stations that limit access and add distance for disabled” (Cambridge Day)

“State transportation officials are likely to get an earful at an open house Wednesday meant to explain what’s happening with the green line extension, as residents and officials don’t like what they already know. At Monday’s meeting of the City Council, residents and officials rallied behind an order by councillor E. Denise Simmons to rework plans for a Union Square stop, where the design will make it harder to board for riders coming from Cambridge or for people with disabilities or mobility issues.

Councillors called the situation “deplorable” and raised the prospect of a lawsuit.”
