Description

IS HART ON TRACK?

Andrew Robbins is currently HART’s Executive Director and CEO, leading the elevated rail line project in Hawaii, a project which has seen its price tag rise to more than $9 billion from about $5 billion. Most overruns predate Mr. Robbins, who is the sixth person to lead the project. Does Mr. Robbins expect costs to exceed the current projection of $9.02 billion? What are the chances that the entire rail line will be finished by the current 2025 projection? What does Mr. Robbins believe the impact the new transit-rail system will have on helping to alleviate longtime traffic congestion on Oahu?
