When is the Arthur kill road station going to open?

Recommended Posts

I know some of you guys may not believe this, but I read on Wiki that the SIRT Atlantic and Nassau stations will be demolished (since they are in very poor condition) and the (MTA) will construct a new Arthur Kill Road station.

 

 

I just want to know when you guys think it will open.

To be frank, I would ask this:

When is it going to be built???

Well, I heard it was supposed to start in 2008 and be completed in 2010.

 

Frankly, I have not heard anything regarding its construction status nor anything on its groundbreaking, if it did have one.

It will be between now and 2013, since it is in the Now til' 2013 Capital Program...

 

While it is in the Capital Programme, funds have to be allocated for it and the agency has to select a contractor to build the station.

I don't remember if they even have designs for the proposed station.

They should have it prepared or under-going since it is in the Capital Program...

 

The CP is just a general plan for allocating the funds.

They still have to do a DEIS/FEIS (if necessary) before beginning work. They must bid for the contracts to build the new facility as well. It's not going to happen in a snap.

I know, it won't... I am on the mta.info site for years and would barely expect something to get done...

How come I don't see you on the page? lol

Anyways, on topic, will this be part of Capital Construction? I really think that this is, due to the fact that it is a new station that will be built. Even South Ferry rehab is part of CapConstruction.

I mean I visit the (MTA).info site for years...

 

I believe so, since it is on the 2008-2013 Capital Program as I descirbe it for the millionth time!!!

While it is on the Capital Programme, it does not specifically guarantee that construction will happen between 2008-2013, it only means that funds will be allocated in the MTA's budget for the project.

I know, I Know, I KNOW!!!

I really don't want to pick on anyone here but:

This is not SubChat, if a point is reach don't repeat yourself all over again.

 

Back to Topic:

I'm pretty sure if this station is built, it will use side platforms.
