One of Metro's highly anticipated metro rail projects is the South Bay Green Line Extension. The Green Line's current western terminus is Redondo Beach Station, located on the edge of Hawthorne and Redondo Beach's North Redondo Beach section. If all goes according to plan -- and there's little to believe that it won't -- the Green Line will be extended further southeast along the old Harbor Subdivision Transit Corridor right-of-way, into the small city of Lawndale, through northern portions of Redondo Beach, and finally on down to Torrance's planned Transit Center.
This is the article.
While this extension of light rail to growing residential, retail, and employment centers is surely welcome, this may not be called the Green Line. Operating schemes that have been published before show an operational change between the Green and Crenshaw Lines once the latter comes online. The existing Green Line would begin westbound at Norwalk as it does now, but it would turn north onto the new Crenshaw Line to stop closer to LAX International Airport. The new Crenshaw Line, going south, after stopping near LAX International Airport, would turn west onto the existing Green Line and take over the remaining existing stops. It therefore would be what is extended beyond the current Redondo Beach terminus to Torrance.
