    Mississauga will ban new development along Hurontario until the LRT gets funding.

    Drum then goes on to discuss how boneheaded an idea it is for Hudak to want to cancel the LRT.

    Thanks!

    Now that you mention it, I was actually aware of the Mayfield widening, I drove through there a few weeks ago. Its going from 2 to 6 lanes for some reason.

    hamilton to oshawa is considerably more than an hour by car, even when you are going at 2 am on a sunday. (the only time nowadays that seems to have no traffic on the 401)

    So I'm trying to compile a list of municipal road widening projects occurring in the GTA this summer, does anyone know of any to add to the list? These are the ones I'm aware of, with the lane change...

    its supposed to be about Hudak's transportation plans from my understanding, but the election (given its extreme saturation in the media and otherwise people's daily lives) has been leaking into tons...
  8. really, any amount helps. The amount removed...

    really, any amount helps. The amount removed gives them that much more space before the widening is required, as the AADT levels are only going to be reaching the required point in 5 or so years. the...

    Hmm maybe I'm wrong. Its just that the other day I was looking at this document detailing required transportation capital expansions for Vaughan that assume a $4.5 million cost for a grade separation.
  10. how the hell does a single grade separation cost...

    how the hell does a single grade separation cost $49 million? are they missing a decimal there or something?
  11. AADT (average annualized daily traffic) on the...

    AADT (average annualized daily traffic) on the 401 to London is above 50,000, and over 100,000 to KWC. It is a very highly travelled corridor. Its much busier than the 401 out to Ottawa and Montreal,...

    I wouldn't go as far as removing the 501, actually I would like to see queen street pedestrianized as much as possible if king's streetcar is removed.

    I've always been a fan of having the DRL replace the 504, with stops at pape, Gerrard,
    Carlaw/queen, until ever, PAN AM (front and the new park), parliament, Jarvis, Yonge, university, spadina,...

    Hudak just held a photo op on the PACE construction site criticizing the governments renovations of this building and (GASP!) spending money to house employees, trying to tie this into the MaRS non...

    Legacy streetcar routes will never be able to operate as transit city style LRTs, there are simply too many traffic lights for them to navigate.

    The DRL is what is really needed to improve access...

    I presume they would finish any trips that begin before Midnight, but would refuse to start any new ones. I.E. if the bus leaves at 12:05 it would be cancelled but if the bus left at 11:55 they would...

    I believe the delivery track at Greenwood has been converted to train storage now, its not really possible to convert or else the TTC will lose the capability to store a train or two.

    my understanding is that the floors are largely just concrete shells right now, there wouldn't be much to "convert" to office space. Lab space largely just means better ventilation, higher floors,...

    The turnaround at Union is going to have to be short as they have only a single platform, unlike at Union.

    Yet continue support for Sheppard, finch, Eglinton, hurontario, Hamilton, Waterloo, and Ottawa.

    The Birchmount extension under construction there will really help connect these to Downtown Markham, they sit rather isolated currently.

    Probably not, the slow order certainly won't be removed. They need to do the long term shutdown to rebuild the entire trackbed to fix that.
