Amtrak: Work is ahead of schedule at Penn Station

15 Juillet 2017

Amtrak officials said the first week of track work in Penn Station New York has gone "very well" and is even slightly ahead of schedule.

"Work accomplished includes installing two new track switches between the Hudson River tunnels and Penn Station platforms, dismantling two other switches to be replaced next week, and replacing half of a track 'diamond" which is part of a junction, he said. The work is to go through the end of August. He calls the week "very good". "People have responded very, very well". No work crew injuries were reported this week, he said.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority chairman Joseph Lhota said Friday he remains "cautiously optimistic" that things will continue to go well.

While addressing a press conference at the Eden Gardens, Sourav Ganguly said,"Zaheer was contacted for 150 days per year". Yesterday, CAC member Ganguly said that Khan has been offered a contract of 150 days per season.

MTA chairman Joseph Lhota said Friday transit officials have "been able to keep things moving across the system" after the first week of Amtrak's summer-long project to fix and replace tracks and signals. In the mornings, there are fewer riders using trains at the peak 7:30 to 8:30 time.

Lhota says transit officials and commuters are "getting through this together". He commends commuters for their patience and ability to adapt to new schedules by taking earlier or later trains or other forms of transportation.

The Port Authority of NY and New Jersey said its PATH trains from Hoboken and Jersey City, New Jersey, cross-honored an average of about 23,000 NJ Transit fares on the first four days. Some NJ Transit rail lines are being diverted to Hoboken during morning and afternoon peak periods.
