Default NJ Transit Train Station in South Brunswick

Hi Everyone,

Any idea on what the prospect of a new NJ Transit Train Station in South Brunswick is? I know talks and discussions have been around for quite a while.

Thanks,

Now that the idiots of Monroe and Jamesburg have effectively killed the Middlesex section of the MOM line, why does So. Brunswick need a station at all?

You mean North Brunswick. They are building a transit village there. If you google it you will get information. I believe they got the green light.

It's all those old people. Monroe is starting to reap the rewards of zoning all those over 55 communities. Hope they wallow in it.

Its not just Jamesburg opposing it, but also South Brunswick. People around ridge road will never allow tains passing through their backyard. If I were in their shoes, I would have opposed too. At personal level why you would care for someone living in Ocean county if it affects your living (more noise, lower property value).

There is already Jersey Avenue station in North brunswick, having another one at JNJ doesn't make sense. I cannot imagine traffic on rt.1, finnegans lane, after station is materialized. Moreover North brunswick is one of the town with least amount of open space, by allowing station at JNJ site will make the town real urban sprawl.

Long term benefit for the area would be to have a trains station at/nearby rt.130 park and ride instead of north brunswick.
That will benefit lot of communities including whole Monroe, South brunswick, some parts of Manalapan, Cranbury, East brunswick, North brunswick, Frankin.

A developer in So. Bruns. long ago proposed a train sta. off US 1 near Northumberland and Deans Lane, and No. Bruns. politicos want one off US 1 in area of old J&J plant, both because the distance between New Bruns. & Princeton Jct. stas. is the longest in NJ. Don't hold your breath waiting for either to be built because there's no money.

Ocean-Monmouth proposal would benefit commuters from those counties, not Middlesex where it would connect with mainline in So. Bruns. Ocean-Monmouth politicos don't want a new railroad (partly on existing tracks) in their backyards in a more direct route through Red Bank to Matawan (North Coast mainline) to Newark & NYC. Any such railroad would be a billion-dollar boondoggle for taxpayers to support 1,000 Manhattan commuters who chose to move so far out.

Take commuter-express buses to NYC from Rt. 27, US 130 or US 9 instead.

There is already Jersey Aveue station, I think No Bruns. station will be bad move, in no time it will kill beauty of the area (because of traffic). This town (where I live) has one of the lowest open space in NJ. Whereas south brunswick has lot of open areas around the train tracks.
