The signals and interlockings were redone as part of the design, the technical details of which I don't presume to know. Look how long any planning such as the Cut-off and MOM take. Its not just a matter of laying an extra track. If it hadn't been for the NIMBY's, the work would be done and ready to go, and incorporated into any even better new schedule, with more room for expansion in the future. This is a cautionary tale: when NJ Transit wants to give a line more service and more capacity, at no charge to the local communities, don't fight them!
