There are many ways to get around New Jersey for a bunch of different reasons. One local method is getting a 49-million-dollar makeover courtesy of Gov. Murphy, the New Brunswick Train Station will see a massive modernization and expansion update.
Major Jim Cahill, was more than thankful after the it was announced, that the 118-year-old train station would receive a large-scale investment into updating the commuter central into a more modern facility able to keep up with New Jersey’s ever growing tourism rates. This is especially important considering the entertainment boom planned for New Jersey over the next couple years.
All smiles as @GovMurphy announced new funding for a new train station in the @CityofNewBruns. It was an honor to share this moment with @SpeakerCoughlin, @FrankPallone, @MiddlesexCntyNJ Director Rios, @NBDEVCO & a whole host of others who makes New Brunswick special! pic.twitter.com/URdI50wdyM— Mayor Jim Cahill (@MayorCahill) September 24, 2022
The money would go to replacing old and worn-out platforms, escalators and elevators among other things both internal and external. Though to many New Jersey residents this is a massive relief as the station is certainly a critical spot for all transit from New Jersey’s Northeast rail line. Gov. Murphy had a few words to say on the matter as the station was built during the Roosevelt administration back in 1903. The station has seen all of New Brunswick’s ups and downs, but the change is certainly a welcomed one.
Especially when you consider that a 665-million-dollar technology hub is being built across the street. The New Jersey Innovation and Technology Hub, also known as ‘The Hub’ was announced around this time last year and will stand as a large-scale medical research facility. Bringing even more jobs and money into New Brunswick’s already expansive economy.
These upgrades being announced today will ensure that New Brunswick will continue to be recognized as a critical component in statewide and regional transportation. https://t.co/OxFKlrJ19y— Mayor Jim Cahill (@MayorCahill) September 24, 2022
Cahill, gave another compliment to Murphy saying the Governor understood the importance of updating the railway that is directly next to a massive development right in the heart of New Jersey. So, it will certainly be interesting to see how much the current building really changes as well as how New Brunswick residents will handle a possible increase in tourism in the area.
