New Hudson rail tunnel project would dwarf initial plan < read the article here

ARC vs. Gateway

Both the current Gateway proposal and the canceled ARC project would put two new sets of tracks under the Hudson River and build a loop that bypasses Secaucus Junction to provide a one-seat ride from North Jersey. Here are some of the key differences:

COST

ARC: $8.9 billion

Gateway: $20 billion

NEW YORK TERMINUS

ARC: New transit hub under West 34th Street between Eighth and Sixth avenues.

Gateway: Expansion of Penn Station one block south between 30th Street and 31st Street.

NEW TRACKS

ARC: Additional tracks between |Secaucus Junction and Manhattan.

Gateway: Additional tracks between Newark Penn Station and Manhattan.

ADDED TO GATEWAY

  • Rehabilitation and rebuilding of existing Hudson tunnels.
  • Replacement of century-old Portal Bridge in Secaucus with twin, two-track, high-level bridges.
  • Replacement and renewal of 105-year-old, two-track rail embankment between Newark and Secaucus. Also, building of two additional rail lines running parallel to the embankment.
  • Replacement of Sawtooth Bridge over |Passaic River, plus expansion of railway line from two to four tracks.

Unlike most suburban subdivisions, which are intended for car commuters, Wesmont is built around a new train *station on NJ Transit’s Bergen County Line.

[....]

Now, NJ Transit has moved the date back again. And the agency left the door open for even more delays if construction does not proceed as planned.

“The station is currently projected to be open in spring 2016,” NJ Transit spokes*man Jim Smith said in an email.
