Extraits

The MTA and DOT “need (présent/need) to collaborate with one another,” Councilman Steve Levin said (passé/say) at a Williamsburg rally.

(Todd Maisel/New York Daily News)

The L train armageddon is (Présent/be) just about a year away, but anxious riders say (Présent/say) they’re (Présent/be) in the dark about transit agencies’ plans for the impending chaos.

Elected officials and Brooklyn community groups rallied (Passé/rally) Tuesday outside The West coffee shop in Williamsburg to complain that it’s been (Présent/Have>>Participe passé/be) at least six months since reps for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and city Department of Transportation have connected (Présent/Have>>Participe passé/connect) with them.

They need (Présent/need) to collaborate with one another,” Councilman Steve Levin (D-Brooklyn) said (Passé/say). “We cannot get (Présent/Modal (can)/get) (ici "bogged" ne fait pas partie du groupe verbal noyau. Il est complément de "get")bogged down in (a) governmental blame game.”

The details on the plan to move 250,000 commuters during the 15-month shutdown of the L line’s Canarsie tunnel — for Hurricane Sandy repair work — have been (Présent/Have>>Participe passé/be) too vague to give confidence to riders that they can get (Présent/Modal (can)/get) to their destinations or to business owners that foot traffic won’t plunge (Présent/Modal (will+négation)/plunge), the groups said (Passé/say).

The MTA is closing (Présent/BE>>ing/close) the L line’s Canarsie tunnel, starting in April 2019, to repair the storm’s damage. That will cut off (Présent/Modal (will)/cut off) train service in Manhattan and into Brooklyn. Brooklyn L train service will remain (Présent/Modal (will/remain) open up to the Bedford Ave. station.

Esther Bell, owner of The West, said (Passé/say) it’s (Présent/be) hard to plan for the shutdown without information.

I can’t imagine (Présent/Modal (can+nég.)/imagine) why they think (Présent/think) that the last-minute presenting a plan for moving these thousands of people is actually going (Présent/be>>ing/go) ("work" est complément de "going") to work,” she said (Passé/say).
