The Other Reasons He Cancelled the Tunnel
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie recently told the Wall Street Journal that he saw several problems with the ARC Tunnel project beyond the cost overruns. He points the finger at bad design and poorly planned:
""ARC" stands for Access to the Region's Core and the tunnel was supposed to enable New Jersey train riders to connect to Penn Station in New York and the east side of the city. But the final design had trains dumping passengers elsewhere. "No one wanted to go into the basement of Macy's, 10 stories underground, come 10 stories back up to Herald Square and walk over to Penn station to get another train." It was not what was promised, he told us."
