The Golden Gate Bridge will undergo its first comprehensive checkup by outside experts in 20 years to determine if the 52-year-old span is strong enough for rapid-transit trains. Golden Gate Bridge District directors approved a $423,000 contract for the work and also voted to hire another group of experts to test the giant cables, steel sockets and girders on the bridge's 742-foot-high towers.

The Golden Gate Bridge may soon undergo modern wind stress tests, partially to determine how the 52-year-old span would withstand blustery weather if a second deck is added for a rail transit system. A recommendation by chief bridge engineer Dan Mohn to study how much wind it would take to damage the suspension bridge, which in 1982 withstood 70-m.p.h. winds, was endorsed unanimously Friday by a committee of bridge directors.
