Corporation to oversee New York Hudson tunnel project
Thursday, November 12, 2015



THE project to develop a long-overdue new rail tunnel from New Jersey under the Hudson River to New York City took a major step forward on November 11 with the creation of a corporation within the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to oversee the scheme

The Gateway Development Corporation (GDC) will coordinate the project and will be controlled by a four-member board with representation from the states of New York, New Jersey, Amtrak and the Federal Department of Transportation. As part of the agreement to found GDC, the federal government and Amtrak have committed to funding half of the estimated $US 20bn project, with the two states funding the other half

Does that mean the tunnel is actually funded?! From what I heard very recently, the new transportation spending bill leaves almost nothing for rail transit (NJ Transit will lose $60 Million a year in funding while the Federal Highway Trust Fund will receive a $77 Billion bailout!). If funding is in place, work can start right after the design and environmental review process.

I think were very close to getting it funded...probably by the end of the year...

City Council members are proposing a plan to let New York City residents pay $2.75 to ride Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North trains within city limits, but not everyone is on board.
Councilman Daneek Miller says making commuter-rail trips within the city the same price as a subway ride could help residents in low-income neighborhoods get to work faster and save money.
ADVERTISING




But the MTA says it would lose $70 million a year if the plan goes through — in addition to the $271 million it already loses on paratransit services, $172 million on free rides for schoolkids, and $95 million lost to half-off senior citizen fares.

Yeah you might have a point. If they can't meet this level of service as is could be very complicated indeed. Just reading the article myself Seems like there trying to execute this without really thinking about it. -_-
