Recently in his blog (highly recommended for transportation nerds) Ari Ofsevit published a blistering critique of the $11M MBTA proposal to build a one-track ADA-compliant station at Auburndale. He points out that for the same price, all three Newton stations could have a single high platform, but double platform stations are preferable. In a new post, Ofsevit takes a look at what it would take to build such a station, again for roughly the same cost, and how it might benefit the neighborhood, walkability, and even the schools, helping to heal the damage done by the Turnpike in the 1960’s.
