Plans for WTC security bunker still up in air

The planned security post at the World Trade Center has, in fact, no plan at all, the Daily News reported. The Port Authority’s Site-Wide Operations Coordination Center, slated to monitor security at Grand Zero and fend off terror threats, has not yet been designed and no budget has been set. Agency officials said the location — which was initially planned for the northwest corner of Greenwich and Liberty streets — and opening date of the facility is also still up in the air, and delays could in turn throw off plans for the Freedom Tower and Transportation Hub, which are supposed to rely on it for critical security operations. In place of the permanent facility, whose NYPD, FDNY and counterterrorism staff will be intended to overcome the communications breakdowns that occurred on 9/11, the agency said it would open an interim facility early next year at 115 Broadway. The Daily News said news of the interim location came only after months of rebuffed questioning from reporters.
