LIRRCC Restates Support for Long Island Rail Road Expansion Project


The LIRRCC has long supported LIRR Main Line Improvements that will expand capacity, improve reliability, and provide the opportunity for implementing bi-directional service at all times. LIRR expansion is not only crucial to the economic health and quality of life of Long Island but also for the State’s economy.

The construction of the East Side Access project only intensifies the need to expand the LIRR as explained by LIRRCC Chair, Mark Epstein, “Riders need these improvements to advance LIRR operations and to unlock the benefits of the East Side Access project”.

The MTA Board is slated to vote on the LIRR Expansion contract this Wednesday, with the LIRRCC strongly urging the Board to approve the contract.
