I know this is Crazy Transit Pitches, but I think that a dedicated harbor crossing for the Eastern Route to access the NSRL (rather than using the main trunk via the current route) is going to fail the cost-benefit calculus pretty hard. Kicking Reading off to the Orange Line eliminates any conflicts with the Eastern at their junction north of Sullivan, and paying the going rate for grade crossing eliminations in Chelsea to speed up that leg of the current route is going to be way cheaper than a water crossing.Thank you. And it would more sense if NSRL was implemented as EWNSRL with one tunnel across the harbor up the other part of the old GJ ROW through Eastie
I've no particular objection to Eastern having its own leg off the NSRL, I just tend to doubt it can justify the cost over and above the main NSRL project cost.
