Concerned about reports of construction defects in the new Los Angeles subway, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority unanimously voted Wednesday to delay the awarding of a $45-million contract until the structural soundness of the tunnels can be verified. The MTA board decided to postpone the award to the joint venture of Tutor-Saliba-Perini for construction of a subway station until the 13-member board has received a report from an independent panel of experts.

A joint venture formed by Tutor-Saliba Corp., a Sylmar-based construction firm, and Perini Corp. of Framingham, Mass., said it has been awarded a $38.5-million contract to build a subway station at the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Vermont Avenue in Los Angeles. The station, scheduled for completion in mid-1994, is the joint venture's fourth Metro Red Line project awarded this year, and brings to $217.5 million the total value of the joint venture's Metro Rail projects.

State officials warned Tuesday that prospects for a proposed high-speed rail line between Los Angeles International Airport and Palmdale could be dampened if its private backers demand substantial public funding. The warnings followed the disclosure Monday by proponents of the 69-mile, multibillion-dollar system that they no longer believe the project can be privately financed, as originally expected.

Ronald N. Tutor, the hard-driving, outspoken boss of the Metro Rail's largest contractor, called the fire that raged through the $35-million tunnel that his crews were building a "tremendous disaster." But he quickly added that the tunnel fire is "one isolated tragedy" in upward of $2 billion in public works contracts completed by his company. Isolated though the fire may be, the Sylmar-based Tutor-Saliba Corp. and its boss have made their share of waves in a notoriously tough business.
