New York 21 fällt aus

Gigantische öffentliche Verkehrsprojekte kann man einfach nicht stoppen. Oder etwa doch?

The largest public transit project in the nation, a commuter train tunnel under the Hudson River to Manhattan, was halted on Thursday by Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey because, he said, the state could not afford its share of the project’s rising cost.

Then, reinforcing his reputation for audacity, the governor called on the senators who had secured the $3 billion in federal money for the tunnel to try again, for a less costly project.
