Third Track on LIRR

The Long Island Rail Road – a great asset for Long Island in desperate need of the Third Track.

The Long Island Railroad

The Long Island Rail Road has been central to the growth of Long Island, yet the reach has remained unchanged since 1910. Today, the LIRR’s constrained track capacity creates significant bottlenecks for commuters heading into New York City and then home again. That outdated capacity also limits reverse commuters who might fill the growing number of technology-related job vacancies on the Island, hampering our economic growth.

Now, the LIRR is poised to provide new capacity and could lead a new era of economic growth for Long Island.
