Infra Structure Oh Yes We DID
16 new tunnels were finished last week after 5 years of digging beneath Manhattan.
On Monday the 200-ton machine ground to a stop beneath a Long Island Rail Road line in Queens, having carved out one of four big new tunnels that will allow the railroad's trains to connect to Grand Central Terminal.
Meanwhile they still continue digging the 2nd Avenue Subway line which now extends as far as 96 ST
The milestone marks the end of tunneling for all MTA megaprojects: "Sixteen brand new, concrete-lined tunnels now exist under New York City where none did five years ago," said MTA Chairman Joseph J. Lhota. "The conclusion of tunnel boring reminds us that New Yorkers remain capable of great achievements."
The photos from the 2nd Avnue subway still under construction another great feat while so much of the nations infra structure rots.
Theres nothing we can't do as a nation now stop the BS & get on with it! The new links to Grand Central will take 30 minutes of LIRR commutes...thast whne the LIRR is running.
