After Penn Station Repairs, Gateway Tunnel Is Next Worry

July 11, 2017

The first day of major track repairs by Amtrak at New York Penn Station went off relatively smoothly for NJ Transit. This was because “NJ Transit had a straight forward plan and they executed it very well,” said Martin Robins, former deputy executive director of NJ Transit.

Asked whether Amtrak’s Labor Day deadline for completing the work at Penn Station can be met, Robins who is founding director of the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center, said, “Amtrak’s performance is not always perfect when it comes to capital improvements and timetables, but let’s cross our finger and hope…” Robins was speaking to Mary Alice Williams of NJTV News.
