Trains vs. laboratory equipment

The University of Minnesota is a major supporter of public transportation. The Twin Cities Campus charges a lot for parking, and offers inexpensive bus passes to encourage people to leave their cars at home. But trains give labs a new issue to think about in terms of how vibration will effect their equipment. The Computer Science Building nanofabrication lab already sits on a floating concrete slab so no vibration is felt from the street.

The article Potential light rail vibrations concern U of M researchers just gives the Central Corridor project team something else to think about.

What do you think about the light rail's track?


I've become much better educated after perusing your blog.
