Residents living along the Metropolitan Transit Authority/Long Island Rail Road's (MTA/LIRR) 11.5-mile Main Line Corridor do not - under any circumstance - want a third track installed. They do however, welcome the elimination of on-grade crossings in New Hyde Park (Covert Avenue, 12th Street and New Hyde Park Road), Westbury (School Street) and New Cassel (Urban Avenue) and believe that phase of the LIRR's highly controversial Main Line Corridor Improvements Project should be tackled now. The LIRR's Main Line runs from Queens Village east to Hicksville.
