Leak control at Forest Hills Station on Thursday, April 7, 2016.

The T’s big embarrassment of the week has been the leaks at newly renovated Government Center.  There’s a much more minor leak at Forest Hills.

At the Jamaica Plain station, T personnel have deployed what looks like plastic trash bags to catch a leak down a support column next to the turnstiles.  Seems like a good interim fix, since it’s keeping the water off the main floor.

  • That roof has been leaking ever since I got to Boston 27 years ago. There at least used to be a leak over the escalators to the subway platform but I haven’t ridden the subway in a while so I don’t know if it’s been fixed or not.
