Re: Hudson tunnel -green light
without the new tunnels(also one track per tube) rail service to NY Penn
(NYP) would be reduced by 75%. PATH does not have the capacity and not
enough rolling stock to handle a 75% reduction in Amtrak/NJT service
from Newark Penn (NWK) to NYP.
Guess what? Amtrak owns the tunnels. That means NJT would suffer greatly
and Amtrak would have nearly 100% service and Midtown Direct would be
what the locals calls Midtown INdirect and goes to Hoboken (HOB) .
Raritan Valley to NYP - NO! end at NWK .
The roads , Bridges and tunnels to NY can not handle the traffic when
the existing tunnels are rehabbed before the new runnels open.
