Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

So now we want bike and bus lanes on Queens Blvd. it used to be a ten lane roadway and you want only six lanes with only four contiguous lanes because we all know that the cars will just magically disappear and delays will all be eliminated. What planet are you living on?

SBS certainly has been executed poorly when DOT has presented only the postures and omitted all negatives never even stating outright that general traffic lanes will be removed. When they never solicited from the communities the problems they saw and just dictated SBS is the answer and you are getting it whether you like it or not.

When they presented a $20 million plan that suddenly became $200 million, then $400 million, then somewhere in between without any explanation.

There are about a thousand pages of SBS material that DOT has produced and the information about costs is about one page. We have no idea how much the B44 Nostrand service even costs. In one document NYCDOT states its $15 million and in another they state it is about $47 million. They also state in that same document that the operating costs are an additional $6.7 million annually, but in the staff summary, it is $3 million. The B44 also was two years late.

That is poor execution. There should be no discrepancies and tine estimates should be realistic.
