Rider raises concerns about gap between platform, train
A traveler expresses concern about the gap between Amtrak’s Acela trains and the South Station platform, which caused a painful fall. And on the highways, there’s good news for South Shore commuters and people heading to the Cape from Route 128. The state has come up with a temporary fix to support the degraded bridge on Route 3 near the Braintree-Quincy line that forced a lane shift and snarled traffic. That means traffic should return to normal by summer’s end.
