Simotas Says Astoria Subway Station Construction Closures are a Recipe for Disaster and the MTA Must Change its Focus to Improve Service and Accessibility

February 8, 2018

Our community is already feeling the pain of current station closures and on top of that will now have to cope with Ditmars Boulevard construction. All this construction is a recipe for disaster, inconveniencing riders, hurting small businesses and blocking busy streets. The MTA seems oblivious to this pain and the things that subway riders really need working trains that run on time and elevators to help the elderly, the disabled and parents with children the MTA is ignoring.
