Broadway Junction Realignment


Milan

Recommended Posts

The jamaica line is one of the oldest and slowest in the system.

Best way to improve is to cut this in two and connect the eastern portion to Fulton(A&C) subway.

Proposal is as follows:

1)Dismantle el between Broadway jnct and Crescent street.

2)Extend Fulton (A&C) from East New York station to Crescent via a

subway line under Arlington ave with stations at Vermont st,Barbey st and

Highland pl(3 tracks&2 island platforms at this station)

3)Connect ' L' from Bushwick-Aberdeen st. to Fulton line Llberty av (A&C)

st. via Conway st&Norman pl with a new station right under the East ny station of A/C(three tracks&2 island platforms)

4)Connect Rockaway line from Aqueduct station to Euclid ave

&Highland pl.stations via a new subway under Conduit ave.

 

Service to be rearranged as follows:

a)L line 8th ave to Far Rockaway

b)C extended to Lefferts.

c)A line 207th st to Jamaica center via new connection&old J route.

d)J line Canarsie to 71/Continental via canarsie/bklyn bway/6ave lcl//QB lcl.

e)M line Metropolitan to 95th st/Bay ridge (all times)

f)K line Rockaway park to Highland pl(extend to 207th st. rush hrs) .

No more V ,Z&H.

 

Main virtue of this proposal is to divert E riders to A at Jamaica center

and use 6th ave-Bklyn B'way connection.

this is the defintion of wasteful spending. Has anyone else noticed that since this person joinded, all they've done is make this overblown rerotuing threads that would be just about impossible to do?

 

I agree right here. This is basically a (A)(C)(J)(L)(M)(N)(Z)(H)(JFK) switcharoo right here. I am not understanding Milan's plans at all.

It's all senseless. People just need to be grateful for the service they have, especially since the MTA is proposing service cuts again. There's only one, or maybe two, service expansion projects that are worthy of discussing....

Totally agreed.

The only change I would have is build express tracks on the Jamaica el and build a bypass el on Jamaica Av to Broadway junction to avoid the crecent St curve and the local stops b/w CH and BJ.

Now that's an idea I like. But the problem I see wit that one (other with the money) is where exactly is gonna connect to the mainline tracks at the Bway Junction end. You have yard leads comming from every direction, plus the tracks from the (L)

There's a segment where the track 'frame' leads upwards at Alabama Av, that's where they could build the express track from and then it would turn left towards Jamaica Av. Since there's nothing but a cemetary on the left side, the el won't be an eyesore compared to adding another level above the current local stops.

The only slow section of Broadway Junction is the (J)(Z) section. The 1968 Program for Action recommended realigning the (J)(Z) line between Broadway Junction and Crescent St. to Jamaica Avenue, instead of Fulton St. This would cost much, much less than the plan you are proposing right now. It would also provide the possibility of express service between Myrtle Ave. and 121st St. (with some reconfugiuration of service), but as we all know this would be a low priority when it comes to capital construction (compared to the SAS and other possible subway extensions like the (E)).
