What ever happened to the promised MTA feasibility study for restoration of Long Island Road service on the old Rockaway Beach line?
The original completion date was June 2017. It was subsequently delayed until December 2017 and again to June 2018. Another three months has come and gone with no draft or final reports.
The MTA will not even commit to a new schedule and date for release of the study. Continued delay in release of the study could imply that both feasibility and costs have been found to be prohibitive.
If the study results were favorable, there would have already been a press conference to share the good news.
The longer the MTA sits on the study, the greater the odds consultants and MTA staff are staying up late trying to wordsmith the report so as to downplay the bad news.
The only winners from this study will be the well-paid consultants.
