- That is all -
The NJ Transit Midtown Tunnels are two tunnels (one in each direction) that connects New Jersey and New York. They carry Busy commuters(via Amtrak trains) into and out of New York City. The tunnels were opened in 1910 and have been used non stop ever since then. They are HEAVILY congested due to the mass traffic the trains carry. Since 2003, the tunnels have been operating near 100 percent capacity during peak hours (rush hour). Trains ordinarily travel west (to New Jersey) through the north tube and east (to Manhattan) through the south. During the morning rush about 24 trains use the south tube in the busiest hour, and the same through the north tube in the afternoon.
The Access to the Region's Core project to build a set of parallel tunnels began construction in June 2009 to supplement the North River Tunnels, but that project was canceled in October 2010 by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie due the budget being over the "allocated limit". On February 7, 2011, Amtrak announced that it would spend $50-million on design work for a new tunnel project called Gateway, estimated to cost $13.5-billion.
