“Several Green Line extension firms lose T contracts” (Boston Globe)
“The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority has terminated contracts with several firms working on the Green Line extension and will be appointing a new project manager, after consultants revealed last week that the Green Line process has been riddled with problems.
The move to end the contracts paves the way for the agency to put the remaining work — which is the bulk of the project — out to bid again to other companies, and likely does not point to the end of the project.”

“‘The current (general contractor) contract and the statute that created this project delivery system combine to render the current process unworkable,’ T officials said in a statement, saying the situation called for a ‘full break’ from the contractors.
The T also plans to install an interim project manager and restructure its management team.”
