    Toronto | Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design) | ?m | ?s

    It's true that above ground construction costs much less, but, there is significantly more complexity with the frequent grade changes. I'm not convinced that the whole line can be had for 10 B, which in reality is only 3-4 B more than RLS.

    Just a general question about the use of a Right-Turn Green Arrow. I was wondering if it has different meanings depending on the municipality? I was in Windsor over the summer and I noticed that they used them to represent the movements that cars were allowed to travel, similar to some ideas...
