Central Subway Project


Behind schedule and way over budget… Welcome to the world of government work. People wonder why we don’t have more infrastructure. It’s hard when you spend 3-6x the original budget on each project. The bay bridge was $6.4B vs. $1B planned. Imagine all the other projects that could have happened if it was on budget.


I don’t understand the holdup. I mean, there is only one station at the “end” which is Chinatown right? They dug out the tunnel awhile ago, so what else really needs another couple of years? God, remind me not to hire these guys for an apartment remodel…:laughing:


Come on!!!


We should just outsource the whole damn thing to China and let them built it in 10 days. These fools are just no good! Fired!


Then the public wonders why there aren’t more infrastructure projects.





Ok, @aalj, Chinatown is about to blow up!!!


Can’t wait!


Video gives you a tour of what’s down there…


Levy projects the tab for the Central Subway at just under $1 billion per mile of track. And the future extension from the Transbay Terminal to Caltrain? Levy projects the project to cost $3 billion per mile of track.




Somebody is making the difference :slight_smile:


Blame EPA, OSHA, unions, environmentalists, nimbyies, liberals,hippies and all the other anti growth anti change BA freaks…


Liberals tend to make housing expensive and hard to build. Conservatives tend to produce too much housing so appreciation is low.

Which one is better?


Liberals want rent control. Go with the conservatives.


It seems CALTRANS cost of doing public works is much higher than other private operators.


Don’t forget about us…


The BART Janitor


Geez, took long enough…



What about that station in Chinatown, also on Stockton. When will it open?


I believe the last reported opening date is like December, 2019. Don’t hold your breathe…
