Testing Continues on Gold Line Extension to Azusa

LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Testing will continue for the next two weeks on the Foothill Gold Line light rail project from Pasadena to Azusa, it was announced today.

The test train, which is equipped with specialized gear for testing and protective purposes, was pulled just over five miles Monday by a vehicle from the Sierra Madre Villa station in East Pasadena through the cities of Arcadia and Monrovia, periodically stopping for crews to take measurements.

The official testing process began today between California Avenue in Monrovia and the San Gabriel River Bridge in Irwindale.

“Reaching the beginning of the testing period for this project is an important achievement for our team,” said Habib F. Balian, CEO of the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority. “It allows us to test critical elements of the project within specific areas and identify any issues needing to be resolved.”

Over the next two weeks, the test train will be used to continue testing clearances at stations, as well as wheel/rail interface and rail switches.
