Default South Jersey (Gloucester County) Light Rail Update article

Additional surveys delay S. Jersey light rail report - Philly.com
From a few days ago.



Seems there are a few minor details to work out... Like who pays for the 1.6 billion construction, and who operates/maintains the trains at what could probably be a loss.
But significant questions remain on how the line would be paid for or who would operate the trains.
The Delaware River Port Authority is overseeing the ongoing environmental studies, but DRPA officials have said the agency will not pay for or run the rail line. NJ Transit has not committed to paying for it or operating it

It's going to die as a possibility imo.

Many people need to have their word(s) be true and count first here in south jersey, too many lies and exaggerations as well as no apologies for their wrongdoings from my experiences down here in the 2 plus years I'm here. It has to do with the unorganized/corrupt state of whatever within the local governments I say.

It's only a delay for several months. It's not the end of the world. In fact, the article states that construction of the Glassboro-Camden Line could start as early as 2016, which is only two years away. While I wish this transit project was heavy rail like the PATCO, I'm still grateful that it's something instead of nothing. If nothing gets done and the project is abandoned, the problem doesn't go away as we will have to deal with the same issues 10-20 years from now except that the problem will be even worse as the population and traffic levels continue to increase in South Jersey.

You mean possibly several years or decades. A matter of decoding south jersey bs language and lies, just like there's a Wendy's going up on Cross Keys Road in Sicklerville and it initially said to open early spring 2014 - well it's still under construction.
