(7) line extension to 34 Street-Hudson Yards station opening day saga continues...

Recommended Posts

Well....when you think about it....Masked Rider-san kinda makes a point. At least in my eyes, the point is that technological and medical innovations that could do wonders for humanity's development are often sidelined by issues that get media outlets good ratings. Or those that help escalate "The Agenda".

I mean, fire alarms are also listed as the issue, and from what I understand they can't really test anything until after the fire alarm tests are passed, so the inclined elevator testing simply hasn't happened on-site yet.

As I read this from a ad:

You could still wait for that 2nd Ave Subway to be a thing.

Just a random suggestion, but couldn't they open 34th Street on weekdays and then work on the elevators on the weekends? If they can shut down 1/2 the line on the weekend, I don't think that 1 station should be a problem. (Well unless they need to work on the elevator through the week)

That's actually a good idea. Are they installing the CBTC Systems on the (7) this month?

i noticed this that the (7) will be heading toward hunter point ave as a temporary terminal. I never heard of that one because 100 percent of the time the (7) end at QBP. i know there a diamond crossover right outside outside the station.

Once again, ADA laws prohibit stations from opening unless they are 100% accessible. You just gotta wait until everything is done

When I saw this notice, I jumped with joy. Finally trains are going past QBP to terminate during GOs.

You're time scale is a bit short. I think you mean this decade. That's pretty much how long it took to get the (L)'s CBTC system done.

To be fair, a good portion of that was the lawyers battling it out over the contracts, which thankfully didn't happen this time.

 

It always seems to take the MTA three tries to get things right.

I just noticed I misused "you're." I will exile myself from the League of Grammar Nazis.

Walked past the new station last night. It looks pretty cool

From this angle, the entrance looks like it might actually have enough capacity for the expected crowds. Interesting.

Don't forget that there's a second entrance under construction. It apparently won't be finished until late next year though.

Does anyone know what time the first train to 34th Street leaves Main Street on September 13?
