BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — It will be another few months before normal MBTA Red Line service resumes.

The Boston Globe reports that repairs on the Red Line will continue until October.

Signal and switching equipment was damaged in a June train derailment near the JFK/UMass station. Due to the lack of automatic signaling, trains had to be managed manually. This led to reduced speeds, according to The Boston Globe.

The MBTA is working to have all of the signals operating automatically by October, according to The Boston Globe.

Problems on the T have ignited public outrage following recent derailments and delays. Several protests were seen because of fare hikes last month.
