Re: Hudson tunnel -green light

Each tube has only one track. NJT and Amtrak have already stated that
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.
