SUNNYSIDE, Queens -- Delays, weekend work, and slow trains are common complaints for train riders.
No. 7 train riders are frustrated with those conditions and the age of the system. A major project to update the signal system has been going on for the past few years.
Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer (D-Sunnyside) and Access Queens, a transit advocacy group, invited the MTA to Sunnyside.
Transit President Ronnie Hakim made a presentation about work projects and infrastructure improvements.
She says the Communication-Based Train Control project will be done in 2017 and service should improve. Sandy-related repairs to the tunnel connecting the No. 7 train from Queens to Manhattan will be done on April 23.
The community meeting goes until 8:30 p.m. at Sunnyside Community Services on 39th Street and Queens Boulevard.
