People that attach strange moral opprobrium to weed are categorically stupider than those who don’t.

"The MTA estimates it will cost upwards of $40 billion over ten years to bring the subway into the 21st century (or, at least, some kind of working order.) But $40 billion is just a drop in the bucket of what taxes from legalized marijuana in New York are projected to reach: A report released in June by the governor’s health commissioner found that legalizing pot could generate up to $670 million in annual tax revenue for the state."

union jobs, contractor corruption, waste make NYC construction costs the highest in the world

The sandhogs, who negotiate their contracts with private contractors rather than the public agencies that foot the bill, command $111 per hour in wages and benefits, with quadruple wages for weekend overtime. Tunnel workers elsewhere earn far less. For example, unionized tunnel miners in the Detroit metropolitan area earn $22.91 per hour in base pay, $39.32 including benefits; in Northern California, as expensive a place to live as New York, they make $36.12 in base pay, $59.88 including benefits.

Worse, sandhogs insist on overstaffing projects. The Berlin-based consultant Torsten Hahm says that a tunnel-boring machine (TBM) ordinarily needs seven workers; in Germany, such a worker would be paid about $38 in wages and benefits per hour. But a December 2017 New York Times investigation into the MTA revealed that a tunneling contractor counted “25 or 26 people” — about three times what he thought was usual — working on a TBM during the extension of the 7-train line, and quoted a third-party report that “underground construction employs approximately four times the number of personnel as in similar jobs in Asia, Australia, or Europe.” An internal MTA accountant even found that 200 of the 900 underground workers on East Side Access were superfluous: They were being paid full wages, even though officials could not discern their work duties, if any.

And for all this overstaffing, New York gets a much slower pace of work than it should. Hahm estimates that a 4.1-mile underwater tunnel in a typical geological environment, about 75 percent longer than Gateway, should take about three and a quarter years to build. The actual tunnel-boring should take 24 workers two years to complete, at an unambitious pace of 50 feet per workday. Altogether, Gateway will take eight years.

(((guess who))) to the rescue. Respect

In May 2011, an Israeli mathematician named Alon Levy, then just out of the doctoral program at Columbia, compiled the costs of 19 rail tunnels in the United States, Europe, South Korea and Japan. In Japan and continental Europe, Levy found, tunnels usually cost between $200 million and $450 million per mile; the most expensive, the North–South Line in Amsterdam, still cost only $660 million per mile, more than twice its original budget. Spain, Italy and South Korea were especially economical, building tunnels for less than $250 million per mile. (Since 2011, US inflation has increased these numbers by about 12 percent.)

Every tunnel in the United Kingdom or the United States, though, was more expensive than every tunnel in continental Europe or Asia. And the three most expensive were all in New York City: the No. 7 subway extension ($2.1 billion per mile, despite “an unusually sparse station spacing”), the Second Avenue subway ($2.7 billion per mile, by Levy’s reckoning, but closer to $2.4 billion in final cost) and, at more than $6.4 billion per mile, the East Side Access tunneling project from Long Island to Grand Central.

Since 2011, price tags have risen even higher. The MTA now estimates East Side Access’s cost at $11.1 billion — or about $8.8 billion per mile, under Levy’s reckoning of the project’s length. A New York Times investigation found an MTA filing with federal regulators that gave an even higher cost — $12 billion, including budget items excluded from the MTA’s public statements but not including the latest cost escalations.
