The completion date for some much-needed repairs along the 7 line is delayed again, until November of this year.

That makes five times now since the project started in 2011.

Crews are installing a new signal system, forcing service disruptions and closures on the 7 during nights and weekends.

The system is supposed to cut down on the number of breakdowns and allow for more trains to operate at the same time.

Straphangers who spoke with NY1 during the Friday morning rush say the extended timeline comes as no surprise.

"They're terrible, believe me. I give myself like an hour every morning on the way, when I'm done from the gym, just so I can get home," said one rider.

"There's always delays on the MTA. What can you do? As long as they don't raise the Metrocard," said another rider.

The contractor responsible for the project says to finish the work on time, he would need to order more closures.

New York City Transit President Andy Byford says he would support that idea if it sped things up.

But only if it will not interfere with Mets games, since many fans depend on the 7 to get to Citi Field.
