From the New York Daily News:

MTA needs $66 Million to get Second Avenue Subway open on time.

February 25, 2016 / Brooklyn news / Transit Issues / Williamsburg
Shafted! MTA won’t build brand-new L train tunnel

By Allegra Hobbs

Enlarge this image

The Brooklyn Paper / Richard Moon
L no: The transit authority may shut the battered L train tube to Manhattan for years of repairs, but won't entertain the idea of building a new one.

They can’t dig their way out of this one.
The Metropolitan Transit Authority will not build a new L train tunnel as an alternative to the extensive repairs of the existing tubes that would close the line between the boroughs for years, say local pols — claiming the atrophying Canarsie Tube is so close to collapsing, it may not have time to construct another passageway before it caves in.
“Before they could complete such a project, the problems they are anticipating on the L train could happen,” said Minna Elias, chief of staff to Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D–New York) on Wednesday at the first meeting of the L Train Coalition, a group of local businesses rallying to fight the closure. “They are concerned about safety.”
Transit honchos claim the tubes that carry passengers between Williamsburg and Manhattan are in immediate need of repair due to damage caused by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, said Elias — the tunnels and the underlying wiring are falling apart after being ravaged by salt water, and the authority says concrete could begin raining down within years.

New York's Subway to Get New Technologies, But Still Lags Other Cities

By Nikhita Venugopal | February 23, 2016 7:15pm

NEW YORK CITY — We have some catching up to do. New York City has one of the oldest and most extensive subway systems in the world, but when it comes to technological advancements that could ease the stress of commuting, the city is behind the times.
Paris has protective screen doors on subway platforms, Munich has an app that helps you figure out when your train is leaving and Seoul's passengers can use wireless Internet and mobile service inside moving trains.
But making any of those improvements in New York's 116-year-old subway system is easier said than done with the MTA's antiquated infrastructure, experts say. (Seoul's metro, by comparison, is less than 50 yeas old.)

Officials are working to catch up with the rest of the world. Last month, the state announced plans to "dramatically improve" the system and the MTA revealed designs for an accordion-style subway car that could fit more passengers.
Research from the Transit Leadership Summit, a project from the Regional Plan Association, compared the experiences of riders in Hong Kong, Montreal, New York, Seoul, Singapore, Vienna and Washington, D.C. in areas ranging from communication to accessibility.
Some systems, the report found, were cleaner, brighter, safer by the presence of platform screen doors, and easily accessible for all kinds of riders. "In other systems, train stations are dark, noisy and difficult to navigate, and complete accessibility for customers with disabilities is rare," it concluded.

I wonder if the station at 96th St & 2nd Ave will just be called "96 St" or have some secondary name like "96 St/Yorkville" or "96 St/East Harlem" or "96 St/Metropolitan Hospital Center." Many terminus stations have a secondary name (such as Metropolitan Ave/Middle Village, Jamaica/179th St and Canarsie/Rockaway Pkwy).

A Rail Breaks Under Manhattan - A Subway Delay Chronicle
Quote:
Filmed and edited by Max Diamond

A brief look at how one broken rail can drastically affect service on an entire subway line drastically. This video shows the way that the NYC Subway 7 Line operations were handled when a rail broke in the crucial "Steinway Tube", which carries 7 trains between Manhattan and Queens.

Taken on February 25th, 2016.
