Mayor Cunningham Says "No" to Cross Harbor Freight Tunnel to Jersey City
"Trash Tunnel is Environmentally Unsound for City and State"

JERSEY CITY -Mayor Glenn D. Cunningham today criticized a study by the New York City Economic Development Corporation to build a freight tunnel from Brooklyn to Jersey City to move trash away from New York City.

While the study results found that a Brooklyn to Staten Island double tunnel configuration would cost seven percent more to build than a Brooklyn to Jersey City tunnel, Mayor Cunningham said the harm would outweigh any benefit.

Cunningham, who is also planning to introduce a bill opposing such a tunnel in the New Jersey Senate, further faulted the study saying the impact this project would have on the environment has not been fully analyzed.

"You are talking about moving trash on rail containers through our harbor into our city, and we don't even know what kind of hazards this might create," the Mayor said. "This is something that is too serious to not investigate fully."

Cunningham further rejected the plan saying there was no environmental justice to it as the NYC EDC never analyzed putting a rail line through a wealthier income area as opposed to a lower-income area like Jersey City.

"They have bypassed Staten Island for Jersey City," Cunningham said. "Why?" because it is easier to do something like this in an urban city where the population has a lower-income."

Instead of Jersey City, Mayor Cunmingham said other areas should be considered for such a tunnel.

"This study is incomplete because it does not take into consideration other options of moving trash from the New York City area," Cunningham said. "For instance, the New York City EDC did not consider building a Hudson River bridge crossing at Poughkeepsie."///
