I am against this project, here are several of my reasons why. 1) The cost for this project has been severely underestimated. They will run out of money before they can finish it. 2) There is a fault line in the area that causes frequent falling rocks. Adding a massive train that will cause immense vibrations multiple times a day will make that so much worse! 3) The wildlife in the area will be hardly impacted! Many animals will be forced to relocate. Causing a drastic shift in the ecology of the area. 4) the railroad will will make the surrounding area less safe sure to the risk of, fire from sparks caused by the train, risk of being run over, and the risk of the tunnels and bridges collapsing. 5) it will negatively impact the air quality 6) there are better location options for the train that don't cut through hundreds of private property and would be more cost efficient.
