Landlords HATE stuff like that. I wish we had high speed rail here in the NYC metro area. Instead of running commuter trains at 60mph~ you run them at 150. Initially it will dilute residential property values close to the city center, landowners are shortsighted and see this as bad.
The damned subway system here is held together by shoestrings and bubblegum it's a transportation feat everyday they keep moving.
I'm all for infrastructure improvement. It's the bones of the country. We need more efficient transport systems. It's amazing how the Trans-Con lines have essentially converted themselves into bridge routes to carry Pacific traffic to the Atlantic & vice versa.......
