The Honolulu Rail Transit Project is right on track. That's the word from the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation on Thursday.
Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell and members of HART toured the casting yard at Campbell Industrial Park where concrete segments for the Honolulu Rail Transit system are being made.
Every day about 12 segments are made using homemade concrete, and it takes about 15 days for the segment to be finished. It will take about 5,200 segments to make up the first 10 miles of the rail.
In the next few weeks, the segments will be placed on top of the columns. A spokesperson for HART says each segment is unique, like a puzzle piece, each segment has its own specific spot.
After several delays, HART officials say it looks like the kinks are out of the system and the initial section of the rail project, from Kapolei to Aloha Stadium, is on track to arrive in 2017.
