What is to be expected from the next MTA Capital Plan?

And I foolishly thought that this was going to link to the new plan... silly me.

I'm one of the multitudes who can only speculate. The one issue that I'll mention here is that whatever the budget will be, it should address getting Phase II of SAS started.

I totally agree. It would be SO STUPID not including Phase II. After all, it is urgently needed, and two segments of Phase II have already been built. Was the segment between 110th and 120th done, or between 110 and 114th streets?

The completed section of tunnel that's in Phase II territory is between 110th and 120th Streets. Much money has been spent since 1975 keeping that and the segment from 99th to105th Streets in usable condition. And the gap between those 2 segments is barely more than the space needed to build that station at 106th Street that's been promised and put into Phase II.

1. When do you see Phase 2 beginning construction? What would be the cost and how long would the construction take?

2. Will the 125th street station be one track or two tracks?

I meant two or three tracks?
