CLEAN Transportation: Getting rail on the right track
www.cleanhouston.org, 1 Oct 2006 [cached]
Christof Spieler of the CTC agrees that traffic on Richmond will probably get worse in the coming years but argues that light rail should be viewed as part of the solution to congestion problems not as part of the problem.He claims that the trains would integrate into current traffic signal phasing so that vehicles traveling on Richmond, and more importantly those traveling north-south on streets that intersect with Richmond, would not be significantly affected.
In addition to congestion concerns, many are worried about the environmental impacts of placing rail on Richmond.
...
Spieler says the grass would also discourage cars from driving onto rail line - a problem experienced with the Main St. line - because it would clearly distinguish the road pavement from the rail tracks.
...
These factors make Westpark an enticing option, but Spieler says none of that matters if the rail is not located where it can provide the greatest service.

These factors make Westpark an enticing option, but Spieler says none of that matters if the rail is not located where it can provide the greatest service. "If what you are trying to do is serve the area inside the loop,…those jobs and neighborhoods aren't along Westpark," he says. The Westpark line would also be more dangerous in terms of signal timings, most notably because it would limit north-south bound drivers from turning right when the train passes, according to Spieler.
