A report in Newsday Sunday indicates the Long Island Rail Road intends to spend some $203 million to renovate its main line, with major improvements planned for Hicksville station.

The newspaper said Hicksville station is in need of significant repairs and a bridge in Westbury needs to be replaced. The money was originally targeted for a project that would build a third rail line along the central route that runs from Jamaica east to Hicksville.

What do you think of the idea: Money well spent? More delays? Just more problems?
