Rockaway Residents Help with the QRAIL
Members of QRail have been lobbying members of the City Council to vote against the Airtrain---the Port Authority’s plan to build a light rail in the middle of the Van Wyck expressway. At the same time, QRail members have been pushing the "Apple Corridor" plan which involves reactivating the Rockaway branch line of the LIRR.
Residents of Rockaway are being urged to contact City Council Speaker Peter Vallone regarding a vote on the Airtrain on June 1.
Norman Silverman of the QRail committee said, "Many people want Qrail to happen but they must do more than say they are in favor of it. They must let Peter Vallone and other city council members know."
