Misplaced transformers curtail riverfront beautification project

8/19/2016

 USA, Pennsylvania: Last week Lower Merion Township commissioners voted to order O’Neill Properties to move two large transformers that have recently been installed on a portion of what was to be a public space at the riverfront project in Bala Cynwyd, a community bordering the city of Philadelphia.

However, when an attorney for O’Neill Properties said moving the two transformers could cost $1.5 million, the board revoked its earlier vote and instead agreed to allow the transformers to stay, forcing the township to accept a reconfigured smaller public space area, reports Mainline Media News.

The project in question is the riverfront project in Bala Cynwyd, which is supposed to continue the process of reconfiguring the former industrial site from a dilapidated area to a beautiful gateway for Lower Merion Township with public pedestrian access to Manayunk.
