This morning a town hall meeting was held at Brooklyn Bowl to discuss the potential L train shut down to fix the damage in the Canarsie Tunnel. The MTA’s representative was kicked out of the meeting according to DNA info after he was unable to contribute any information to the meeting. From DNA info:
when Inglesby wouldn’t elaborate on what was wrong with the tunnel itself or offer a date for when the MTA would have more information, he was met with furor.
“Basically the problem is that we have Sandy repairs that we have to make in every tube, that’s really all I’m going to say right now,” Inglesby said. “Everyone knows we need to make repairs along the L line…and we’re looking for a plan for that.”
Frustrated with the lack of any specifics, a crowd member chimed in.
“That’s not enough!” one shouted.
Organizers and audience pressed Inglesby for a timeline about when they might get more information from the agency, to no avail.
“Not at this time,” Inglesby repeated, while rapidly tapping a pen on the desk in front of him.
Well that sounds about as useful as a delayed L train on a Monday morning.
