Planning For New South Jersey Train Line Revived

Flickr User DavidWilson1949

Planning could resume for a train line connecting Glassboro in south Jersey with Camden.

A committee of the Delaware River Port Authority approved a contract for an $8.2 million study of the environmental impact of the proposed 18-mile line.

If the DRPA’s full board approves the deal, it would be paid for by New Jersey Transit.

Work began on the study in 2009, but the deal was killed by Gov. Chris Christie, who said it should be put out to bid instead.

Plans call for the train to connect with the PATCO Speedline and NJ Transit services.

The estimated cost of the line is $1.6 billion. The DRPA says it would have to be paid for and run by NJ Transit. But that agency has not committed financing.
