'GRAND' LIRR LINK STALLS
By TOM NAMAKO, NY Post
The mammoth $7.2 billion project to extend the LIRR from Penn Station to Grand Central Terminal is not on track to make its February 2015 deadline, according to a new MTA consultant report.
Chronic delays with four contracts put the completion date "under pressure," said the firm McKissack and Delcan.
And delays cost money, transit advocates warned yesterday, saying the federal government won't provide any more than the $6.2 billion already approved for the project.
