I haven't seen a single PATHVision TV set on the new platforms (there were, of course, a few on Platforms 3/4/5)

They're underneath the staircases.

Convenient... I wish the person who came up with this solution would be forced to use it. Daily.

New platforms look less convenient than temporary ones. My only hope is that when the rest of platforms will be completed, they will provide access to each train from both sides. What will decrease crowdedness on each platform, like it's done at Newark PATH station.

There are also monitors in the temporary station before you get to the turnstiles.

So this would mean they can start with dismantling the temporary PATH station directly afterwards?

Yep, that single monitor is turned toward the platforms, so to figure when is the next train you have to stop, turn around - and wait until the TV tells you that you just missed it. (Sigh)

If escalator installation is just happening now, I doubt that completion will be in 2015.

Not sure how they're going to do that, unless they lock the doors on the south side of Tower 2. They need to create some way to/from there, and pave it.

In this case could you describe number and locations of PATH entrances/exits after closing temporary ground level station in nearest future
