    [float=left]ourtown-large.jpg [/float]NJ Transit has plans for a "flyover" track and a new train station in North Brunswick to improve on-time performance and commuting choices on the Northeast Corridor — North America’s busiest rail line.

    The projects would be done in conjunction with North Brunswick’s plans to turn the old Johnson & Johnson complex on Route 1 into a residential-and-retail development centered around transit. In addition, Amtrak plans to upgrade electrical wiring and signals on a straight, high-speed section of the Northeast Corridor from New Brunswick to just south of Trenton known as "The Raceway."

    nope But they should cut jersey city first that station is useless. Or not bother with a flyover point.

    Assuming you mean Jersey Ave, the plan is to HOPEFULLY have the North Brunswick Station replace Jersey Ave Station, however that is a pretty busy station (1000+ boardings daily), its just the PRR built it as an experimental park-n-ride facility, so no serious investments were ever made towards a "REAL" full mainline station. However this flyover has been in the planning for years and YES it is ESSENTIAL for any kind of Peak service in the Middle Zone to expand in the future wether Jersey Ave closes or not, both yards in Morrisville as well as the JA yard are at capacity so the flyover is needed regardless.

    The new (fantasy) sign at Stratford - Olympic Park Station, a complex shared by the DLR, London Underground, London Overground and National Rail services.

    C - Central line
    J - Jubilee line
    SI - Stratford and Stratford International branch services of the Docklands Light Railway or DLR
    2 - North London line of the London Overground

    This is Stratford station, NYC Subway style.

    Morrisville Yard takes up all the land that NJT owns. The plans for a flyover also include an expanded midline yard. In addition, Amtrak plans to up there speed in NJ to around or should I say DESIRES to increase their speed limits through the area which will in turn kill some of the slots that the 3700's use currently to get from tracks 1 to 4.
